Quote Of The Day
“In ’92, I came back from the Barcelona Olympics and there was a sense of hopelessness—[U.S. distance runners] didn’t seem as though they could get anything done. I remember our athletes were hoping to be top 15, hoping just to make the finals…
“I think what’s happened now is that there have been all these great training groups that have come about, between Alberto Salazar’s group [the Oregon Project] Mark Rowland’s group [Oregon Track Club], Jerry Schumacher’s group [Bowerman Track Club], and the Army group [5,000-meter silver medalist Paul Chelimo’s team]. There’s a sense of renewed belief that we can compete at that level and I think that people are ready.”
