Potato Tim and Nijel Amos are back in a big way, Kate Grace and Isaiah Harris won’t be in Tokyo but they’re winning Diamond Leagues, the Fake Josh Kerr has a lot to say, Usain Bolt runs an 800, is Rojo like Jerry Schumacher, and this week in social media with our summer intern Karl Winter, who actually beat Amos in a race earlier this year.
