Quote Of The Day
“(JJ Clark and I) really started to click these past few years. I ran 2:01 in high school and he got me [at the University of Tennessee] and people were confused why he wasn’t able to take me to 1:59 or 1:58 right away.
But it wasn’t Coach, it was me. I wasn’t really buying into his training. It wasn’t the same as what I was doing in high school so I wasn’t really trusting in it. We didn’t really click my first few years in college. These past few years we’ve really clicked. I’ve bought into everything he tells me to do. I really trust him and I think that’s the biggest difference. I believe in him and I believe in my training and I really can’t see myself with anyone else.”
– Chanelle Price, the 2015 World Indoor Champion, explaining how she’s improved a ton after college with the same coach (JJ Clark) she had during a college career where she barely improved at all (2:01.61 HS PR to 2:01.49 in college).
