Sha'Carri's Big Win in Doha, Tuohy, Andrews, Burns @ Track Fest, Lyles @ Atlanta City Games, Guest Jesse Williams
We breakdown all the weekend action starting with Doha and Sha'Carri Richardson's big win, Lamecha Girma's fine form, and Michael Norman bombing. Then we discuss the Sound Running Track Fest and Katelyn Tuohy "struggling" to the #2 NCAA time ever, Josette Andrews big win, Connor Burns breaking Galen Rupp's 5000m high school record, and a few other breakout stars.
Rest in Peace Tori Bowie. The track and field world lost one of its stars way too early. Life is precious and can get better. If you are struggling, there is help out there, call 988 in the US or visit https://988lifeline.org/
Then it's the adidas Atlanta City Games, which had amazing visuals and a big win for Noah Lyles over Erriyon Knighton but only 6000 viewers live on Youtube.
Then at 105:48 Sound Running founder Jesse Williams joins us to give us a debrief of his meet, talk about how he has been able to get the best distance fields in the US, talk about the difficulty of getting fans to a meet in the US, and discuss whether Mt. Sac should host the Olympic Trials.
