The Larry & Mo Podcast: Women's 200m Final


The Larry & Mo podcast series was pure fun. Maurice Greene and I spoke about the events we loved, the atheltes we admired, and expressed our opinions on the events, on the competition, and on the amazing athletes that inhabit our sport of athletics.

The women's 200 meters is a case in point. Dafne Schippers had something to prove. She had finished fifth in the 100 meters, and was not happy. She was frustrated and expressed that opinion. That was the story that was covered in her country of Netherlands.

In the 200 meters, Dafne Schippers gave it her all. While in 2015, her finish took her to the lead, that was not the result in 2016. Elaine Thompson, after winning the 100 meters, came back and won the 200 meters. Dafne Schippers took the silver and Torie Bowie in third, giving Bowie and Thompson two individual medals in the sprints.

Thanks to Maurice Greene for his involvement. Thanks to Brian Eder for his filming and support. Thanks to the Shoe Addicts for their editing, production and management of the video series. And to adidas, thanks for supporting our vision (thanks Spencer Nel).
