Strung out on two iced Americanos, your favorite editor, Larry Eder, sits on a nice sofa, in his sons apartment. Adam, managing me, a blue healer named Sumo and a Boston terrier named Hachi, is also managing two cameras.
My job is to provide you a short, focused preview of the London World Champs, day for day, for ten days. You know that is not going to happen.
But surprisingly, thanks to Adam’s management skills, and the sudden jolt of energy from six to eight espresso shots, I am, well, like Lou Reed on Ritalin. Awake. Focused. Conversational, and for once in my fifty-eight years, conscise.
Enjoy the day one session. Video is 1:54. I was allowed two minutes. Only took two takes!
No animals were harmed in the making of these videos. Special thanks to Adam Johnson Eder, Mike Deering and Algeron Felice, who all make me look much better than I appear.
Enjoy the video! We will have one of these for each day of the World Champs. For those you not conversant in mathematics, that means ten videos. Enjoy each day, trade them. Most of all, have fun watching the finest ten days of sport every two years, the IAAF World Championships!
Here’s pdf for entire schedule of World Champs! iaaf-world-championships-london-2017-timetabl.pdf
The first day of the London World Champs is busy. From first round 100 meters, where 205 countries can put one athlete into the rounds, to the frighteningly competitive women’s 1,500 meters, to the mens’ discus with Daniel Stahl, Swedish for Superman, it will be an exciting session. Add Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake in the 100 meters, and then, for the British crowd, the men’s 10,000 meters, where Mo Farah is running his last World Champs 10,000 meters, you have a great night to get track fans into the groove!
