Quote Of The Day
“In NBA basketball, the series starts when the home team loses. … This is a rivalry at 100 now. And more importantly, the fans want to see it. Because now the fans are like, okay Christian, what you got? And Noah, was that a fluke, or is that how you’re bringing it every week? …”
“Christian, I think, looks at Noah and he goes, This guy’s everything I’m not. He’s loud, he’s brash, he’s talkative. I don’t say a lot, I just run, and he’s over here with all the other stuff and he’s rapping and he’s on social media. That’s good. That’s the way my generation was: I don’t particularly like you and I want to beat you.”
“When I see Twitter posts and the girlfriends getting involved and going back and forth, I’m like, ‘Good.’ Whether or not anybody likes it, this is going to contribute to more people watching and more people being interested. The two best 100-meter runners in the world right now are American, and they don’t seem to particularly like each other. That’s a good thing.”
– NBC sprints analyst Ato Boldon talking about the budding sprint rivalry between Christian Coleman and Noah Lyles that just got a lot more interesting after they ran the exact same 100m time in Shanghai and then Coleman and his girlfriend took a few shots at Lyles on Twitter.
