We asked Tim Jeffries to compile some of his favorite comments from the U.S. Olympic Trials press conference, held this afternoon. Here are some of his favorites from Galen Rupp, Amy Cragg, Meb Keflezighi, Jared Ward and Desi Linden!
Shalane Flanagan was getting an IV during the presser. She has since recovered and we will catch up with her with an interview.
