The Larry & Mo Podcast: Women's 100m Final


The women's 100 meter final in Rio was a titanic battle of wills. In the end, Elaine Thompson won the big battle, in 10.71. Torie Bowie woke up halfway through the race, and ran to the silver in 10.83. Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, the Jamaican pocket rocket, took the bronze in 10.86. Marie Josee Ta Lou, CIV, took fourth in 10.86. Dafne Schippers, NED, was a surprise fifth in 10.90. She was not a happy camper.

But, athletes at this level do not expect to do anything but win. In that race, where seventh was in 10.94, by English Gardner, USA, the race was deep and difficult.

In this podcast, Maurice Greene and I discuss the outcome of the women's 100 meters. Special thanks to Maurice Greene, for his thoughts and words, Brian Eder, for his filming, and the Shoe Addicts, for their production and editing. Thanks to Spencer Nel of adidas, for his company's support and vision.
