Jason and Kevin discuss Usain Bolt’s struggle to break 10 seconds, Wayde Van Niekerk’s world best/record, Mt. SAC hosting the 2020 Olympic Trials and Sydney McLaughlin taking a year off from the 400m hurdles in 2018.
Then, Alex Hutchinson of Runner’s World joins the show to give his final thoughts on the Breaking 2 project. How much did drafting help Kipchoge? Will there be another attempt at breaking the two hour barrier? What changes, if any, would the scientists at Nike make to shave off those extra 25 seconds?
