adidas Grand Prix: RN photo gallery, note by Larry Eder

The adidas Grand Prix, held on Saturday, June 12, 2010, was a glorious day for track & field. PhotoRun's Lisa Coniglio and Victah Sailer captured the spirit of the meet, which started as a sunny, hot, humid day and finished as a bit cooler, but still sunny and hot. Our sport continues to find a way to communicate the excitment of a track & field meet, and the essence of competition. Yesterday, there were ten meet records, four world leaders and a huge national record for France in the triple jump. At the end of the day, athletes like Andreas Thorkildsen, Steve Hooker, Valeri Vili, Allyson Felix among others, communicate the excitement of our sport with their performances. To meet, the three highest level events, were the men's triple jump, women's 100 meter hurdles, and the epic women's 200 meters. Find your favorite event and email us at [email protected]. As always, special thanks to Chuck Bartlett, Running Network .com's web master, who manages RN's 28 partner sites and prepares the RN photogalleries.
