Check out Doug Logan's "Shin Splints" blog - titled The Bolt Effect. It's an exceptional read. Trying to condense it here for you was difficult. So after you read the following excerpts, follow the link and read the entire blog entry.
On April 25, 2010, PUMA?s South African Triathlete, Raynard Tissink won his second Spec-Savers Ironman South Africa title. Tissink was one of more than 1500 triathletes who flocked to Port Elizabeth to take part in the sixth annual edition of this event.
American sprinter Mikele Barber asked, ?Is the President here??. Her sister Lisa said, ?I was wearing my headphones and the crowd became so loud, I couldn?t hear the music.?
On Friday, April 16, 2010, at the 52nd Annual Mt. Sac Relays in Walnut, CA, eight women and 15 men prepared for the start of the most exciting and unique event of the night ? the PUMA Mile. The winner would leave the Hilmer Lodge Stadium track with a $10,000 sponsorship contract with PUMA.
When we come across a ?new? interview with Usain Bolt, we generally start reading with a little skepticism. Seldom do we learn anything new. Rarely do we encounter the charisma and humor that is Bolt. But Matt Majendie of the London Evening Standard shows journalists everywhere how it?s done. Kudos to Matt. A few excerpts follow.
Below is the video from last night's PUMA Mile. It was an awesome race, with the spectators lining the track with their thundersticks. The energy was amazing.
Before the running of the PUMA Mile tonight, the guys from Flotrack interviewed last year's contract winner Tim Bayley. He discusses the past year, how the PUMA sponsorship has changed his life, his readiness for the upcoming season, and what he thinks of this year's race.
Tomorrow is the PUMA Mile. As the anticipation builds for Friday evening's race we are ready to announce the full men's field for the mile. The growth in the depth of the mile from 2009 to 2010 has been impressive with a handful of athletes at sub 4 including Liam Boylan-Pett (Columbia/Georgetown Grad), Derek Scott (top seed at 3:57, Team Indiana Elite), and Andrew Jesien (UVA grad, USA 1500 finalist).
