Same announcer: two seperate remarks
mens 800 -"Nich Symmonds will have to really have to work hard early if he wants to keep up with these athletes" (now exactly sure word for word).
womens 5000 -(with 200 to go)"being the African American in the group, Treniere Clement definately has the advantage this final 200" (again don't remember word for word)
I was in a room with a few other people watching the 5000 when he said this and we all were stunned. How can someone in this position make comments like this? Maybe the Nich Symmonds comment wasn't too bad, but after he made the 5000 remark I can see where he's at with his beliefs. Why couldn't he have said, " Tremier Clement has great foot speed from the 1500 work she has done, she could really be a factor here". Wht the race comments????
Maybe we should call Al Sharpton.
