Kerr Over Jakob, Prefontaine Highlights, Doping Drama, + Failed LetsRun Predictions

21 days ago

In this episode of the LetsRun.com Track Talk Podcast, hosts Jonathan Gault, Robert Johnson, and Weldon Johnson provide in-depth analysis of the standout events from the 2024 Prefontaine Classic, including Josh Kerr's big victory over Jakob Ingebrigtsen in the Bowerman Mile, Sha'Carri Richardson's return, and Keeley Hodgkinson's win. They also touch on Ellie St. Pierre's rise and discuss the perhaps controversial four-year ban of Issam Asinga and his allegations regarding Gatorade gummies. Additionally, we have the first intern segment where the interns reveal and scrutinize LRC's most most bold and inaccurate predictions, covering topics from Sha'Carri Richardson's potential to NCAA XC.
