On May 6, Tori Bowie and Dafne Schippers dueled over 100 meters. Bowie, with her best start ever, was with Schippers just after 40 meters, and proceeded to accelerate, as they battled for nearly ffity meters. We are in Herzogenaurach, Germany, two days before the adidas BOOST Meeting, and have been fortunate to watch Coach Braumann and his team work out, including Tori. We are looking forward to seeing her race this weekend. Please listen to the interview that Nicholas Herbelot and I did with Tori on May 5, just before the Doha DL. Note that I believe, Bowie and Schippers will, more than likely be two of the major players in the women’s 100 meters this summer in Rio! Remember to watch Tori Bowie and other adidas stars race this weekend! Flotrack will cover it live and it will be on streaming German site, leichatletik.de.
Nicholas Herbelot of L’Equipe and myself were fortunate to interview Tori Bowie, one of the finest sprinters to come out of the U.S.
What was interesting with Tori is the changes for her, between her college training and her elite training.
Tori was the bronze medalist at the 100 meters in Beijing last summer. She has also won the 100 meters at the US Champs and the NCAA’s. What is fascinating in this interview is Tori Bowie’s journey as an elite athlete. She does not brag, but she does believe in herself.
Like many, this writer is curious to see how she can put all the knowledge she has learnt into her starts and her racing. Tori Bowie will be racing the 100 meters tonight in Doha.
