A Poetic Tribute To The Olympic Trials


Thanks to Jason Liao for the wonderful poem before the Olympic Trials kick off later today.

Track fans gather at prestigious Hayward Field
Looking for what our track athletes can yield
Who will be this year’s new juggernaut?
Look no further, the starting gun has been shot.

Tyson Gay sprinting down showing no strain
Hoping this is the year he ends Bolt’s reign
Allyson Felix is tired of finishing second
Let’s hope she can make her opposition feel threatened

Now let’s not forget about our distance runners
With Lagat using his experience to beat the newcomers
Shalane, Jenny B and Hastings round out the women’s side
Looking to be America’s pride
