One has to wonder what Mr. Dix felt after running 19.53 for the 200 meters in Brussels, the second fastest EVER for an American, and taking second to Blake’s 19.26. Dix then goes to the Great North CityGames (Gateshead) back on Saturday and screams a 14.65 for the 150 meters. Think this guy has some serious wheels?
Fast times and more accolades to come for Mr. Dix.
