NCAAs with Olympic gold medallist Dan O'Brien, Seville over Lyles, Ultimate Championships Announced

1 month ago

Olympic gold medallist and NCAA broadcaster Dan O'Brien joins us at 71:08 to talk all things NCAA track and field, plus a little Olympic track and field talk.

Prior to that the fake Josh Kerr calls in to give us insight on Jakob, Centro and Hobbs Kessler. We breakdown the Stockholm Diamond League, talk a little about Jakob's narrow win over Cheruiyot in Oslo, Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone's and Femke Bol's season openers at 400m hurdles, and turn our attention to Jamaica's Oblique Seville beating Noah Lyles at 100m in Jamaica.

We end with an NCAA draft.
