Quote Of The Day
“It wasn’t until I got there that I really understood that what we were doing was a pretty big deal. We were going to the Racers Track Club practice where we would get to see Yohan Blake and Warren Weir do their workouts for the day. We were told that this kind of access has never been given before (even the reporter from the Jamaican national paper, The Gleaner, had never been) and were given strict rules about talking to the athletes during their workout and giving them enough space. We also weren’t allowed to take pictures of any of the other athletes … just Blake and Weir. I felt like I was being given a tour of a museum with valuable, fragile relics and being told not to touch anything.”
