    Hannah Cunliffe ran a 11.14 0.5 wind today for her fastest legal race in three years. Hope she can get back to elite form and make the olympics for the U.S. at the end of the summer.

    A story that interested me: no, he's not a white athlete but it still shows how athletes are tied into various events/distances etc because there is a predisposition to judge an athlete's ability simply because of his/her colour, body shape or cultural ties to specific sports/events.

    “I'm always been told my choice of distance as a Kenyan won't attract sponsors or shoe contracts. So far they've been right, but I’m not willing to sacrifice the satisfaction and joy that comes with doing the 100m and 200m. If I finish my career with no sponsors, nor shoe deals, I'll still be extremely grateful to God for the opportunity I had to pursue my dreams.”
    (READ AS: Kenyans are only perceived as distance runners and unable to excel in other events )

    27 year old Mark Okhiambo is Kenya's top male sprinter and record holder at 10.14. He may never get any faster but he's given his all at what he wanted to do. That earns respect.
