Have any of you been following the Olympic trials?
Well you should try and watch some tonight. I have a few friends and an athlete competing in them. Ellie Rudy is a pole vaulter here at MSU and will be doing her best to get a shot on the Olympic team. My friends Ian Waltz (Mens Disc) and Mckenzie Garburg (womans hammer), will also be competing tonight.
There are a few more people I have met and used to know back in the day that you should also watch, Matt Lamb(mens disc), Russ Winger (mens disc), Stacy Dragila (womans pole vault), Jillian Camarena (womans shot), Bernard Lagat (15oom, who has a chance to win it all in this and the 5000m). Aritha Thurmund (Hill) won the womans disc with a toss of 213-11, she used to throw at UW and now her and her husband coach there.
I love Olympics and I cannot wait to see how all my friends do, please watch and cheer them on.
