LRC Recap Of The US's 1st Street Meet: Marvin Bracy (10.23) Nips Yohan Blake At The Line, Tori Bowie Runs 11.03 & Jenn Suhr Scratches

The United States' first street meet is in the books. The atmosphere was great but not everyone was a fan of the temporary track. Yohan Blake was candid in the mixed zone afterwards, calling the track "atrocious." That's not all he was candid about as he also said that the Russians should be given a second chance in Rio and explained how God told him to give up "The Beast" nickname. A pastor told him if he did so, he'd run well in 72 hours and he then went out and ran his first sub-10 since 2012. Plus Jasmine Todd talks about her mysterious departure from UO.
