Because he's not with NIKE, Letsrun erroneously reported that, I was correct when I originally said he's with Bowerman Athletic Club (not Nike). Thus, he gets nike gear and is not paid by Nike. Similar to how Club Northwest runners get a couple of free pairs of Brooks running shoes per year but no money from Brooks.
I thought the Bowerman Athletic Club consisted of Nike employees, so is he now employed with Nike but not individually sponsored?
I agree-- he looks 'defeated' and tired in the interview. It's amazing how many athletes don't think through their careers beyond pro running. I certainly hope he's now employed by Nike, esp. being a Dad.
