Podcast: Christian Coleman Cleared, Donavan Brazier Makes History, Drew Hunter Out, Bekele (And Rojo) Are Back, Brussels Diamond League Final Preview
September 4, 2019
Donavan Brazier made history by becoming the first American man to win a Diamond League distance final.
Christian Coleman was cleared to compete by USADA, and the Brussels Diamond League final is Friday ( Sifan Hassan vs Hellen Obiri, Michael Norman and Fred Kerley) so we had a lot to talk about.
Plus, Rojo is back from vacation and that means our Alberto Salazar segment is back, plus NOP, Bowerman Track, and Jerry Schumacher talk. Kenenise Bekele is in the Berlin Marathon and the BofA Chicago Marathon men’s field with Galen Rupp and Mo Farah is the stacked race of the fall. Drew Hunter out of Worlds. “JV” pro teams and JV “pros”. Eliud Kipchoge INEOS 1:59 talk and transgender NCAA D1 cross country talk with June Eastwood.
