It's one thing to drop a baton but pass outside of the zone? C'mon US. The US needs more talent on the mens side of 100 and 200 meter sprinting.

What events did you run when you were younger?


Sloppy is a great word for the teams we've run in recent years. I mean really...you tape your marks and practice to which you can change the mark if nec.

I ran lead off in 41. Had a great start and was good on turns. I'm short (5'5") so I got eaten up by 90 meters. Open 400 and 4400. High school and 2 years of college. Ended up playing lacrosse for 4 years in college...way more fun than track.

NICEEEE!! I ran lead off on our 4x100 team too. I had fast starts but was always sloppy out of the blocks. If I had put more practice in exploding out of the blocks, I think I and our team could have been a lot better. Also ran the 4x200 relay on the special occasion. Long jump, triple jump and even pole vault my senior year (I sucked but we were missing out on team points so I volunteered to learn it).

I stayed away from anything related the 400m (or more). Just kicked my ASS yo! It takes a talented person to run that event.

WOW!

So a deal has been done to give LA the 2028 games, and instead of the $1.2bn it was offering, the OIC is rumored to be giving LA $2bn now...

...sorry for the long delay in response.

So, that is awesome that we ran the same thing! 4x200 was a good time too, but a strange race.

We should do TA Relays...though it would be hilarious now and probably consist of things other than running.

Super excited for Gatlin after all those years behind Bolt. Feel terrible though for the way Bolt's championships went. Still, best of all time.

Don't run much any more, as my knees are shot from 20+ years of dancing, so now yoga 5x week...and dancing (with braces on the knees under the jeans.) LOL!

Now fully confirmed: The IOC just announced Paris officially gets the 2024 games for it's 100th anniversary there, and LA gets 2028.

I'll take it! Really excited for both of these Olympics. I think Paris deserves to have 2024. I will be great for that city considering all that's happened with them in the past few years.
