Yohan Blake is the second fastest man in the known world. His 100 meters and 200 meters are only behind one Usain Bolt. Yohan is also the 2011 World Champion over 100 meters. His two year battle to overcome injuries has left him stronger, and wiser. In 2016, Yohan has run 9.94 so far and this past weekend, he was second in a photo finish 100 meters on the street, with Marvin Bracy. Yohan gave the Shoe Addicts a few minutes on June 16 at the adiRunBase Boston store, right after the adidas BOOST Boston presser.
Last Friday night, I watched Wayde Van Niekerk run a wonderful 400 meters in 44.29. Not his best of the year, but a fine performance from the only man who has run sub 10 seconds in the 100 meters, sub 20 seconds in the 200 meters and sub 44 seconds in the 400 meters. And his 300 meters is number two time in the world. This interview, produced by the Shoe Addicts, was done at the adiRunBase Boston, on June 16, 2016, prior to the two day adidas BOOST Boston Games. Wayde Van Niekerk is a thoughtful young man, who enjoys his sport, tries to juggle the world travel as well as he can, and who, I believe, will provide us with a magnifiscent 400 meters in the Rio Games in August 2016.
Tori Bowie continues her focus and building towards the 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials and the Rio Olympics.

This interview was done June 16, at the adi RunBase in Boston. Unfortunately, Jenn Suhr, after warm up on June 18, decided not to compete. She has to save those legs for the US Olympic Trials.
