Jason and Kevin are joined by NBC’s Ato Boldon to give a survey of the landscape of the sprinting world in the United States and beyond. Ato reviews the prospects for Allyson Felix, Christian Coleman, Lashawn Merritt, and Noah Lyles and also explains why Wayde Van Niekerk will have a tough time winning the 200/400 double in London.
After the guys share their thoughts on the distance races, Sara Germano of the Wall Street Journal joins the show and chats about David Rudisha’s tweets, Nick Symmonds’s impact on track and field, when to do a post race pose with a clock and the latest parallels between the Kardashians and the Dibabas.
