Where Your Dreams Become Reality

Lowering Crime in Jamaica:
"It was an awesome season. I broke down a lot of mental barriers on how I need to race.  I always thought I just needed to make the race and go from a long way out and break people.  Last year it kind of dawned on me that you can't always be the one who makes the race, and you have to have it at the end.  It actually came to fruition at the World Champs."
-American Matt Tegenkamp, on his 2007 season during which he was just .03 away from becoming the first American born athlete to earn a medal in the 5k at the world championships.
