RunBlogRun opines: Elite athletes are testing their fitness this weekend, as Euro champ Andrew Pozzi ran a windy 13.13 in Clermont. The well respected British hurdler, now healthy, is finally coming into his own. Watch this young man. He has serious wheels. Nice to see Tori Bowie, double Olympic medalist running a windy 10.80. Some nice performances from Pure Athletics, coached by one of our favorites, Coach Lance Braumann.
