Mo & Larry Tip: What to watch in the 100 meters

| 0 Comments

Maurice Greene knows sprinting.

Maurice Greene dominated sprinting on the global level from 1997-2004. Mr. Greene, who had a great attitude, knew that he was both athlete and entertainer. Maurice held the 100 meter WR at 9.79. If you checked his medal chest, you would find five World Championship golds and four Olympic medals.

In 1997, Maurice Greene won the 100 meters in Athens at the World Champs. In 1999, Maurice then won the 100 meters, the 200 meters and 4x 100 meter relay. In 2000, Maurice won the 100 meters, and also gold in the 4 x100 meters. In 2001, in an epic 100 meters, Maurice Greene won the race, but had damaged his hamstring about 60 meters into the race. Maurice told @runblogrun that he felt the pain and just had to gut it out for 40 meters. "If I had been healthy, that would have been a race." is how Maurice Greene modestly noted that 100 meter race. In 2004, at the end of his career, Maurice took the bronze in the 100 meters in Athens and the silver in 4x100 meter relay.

Plus the guy ran a mean 60 meters!

During the World Champs, as we did in Rio last summer, it's the Mo & Larry Show. We will post on FB live, Instagram live plus provide curated video a bit later, showing you some of the behind the scenes geek stuff, that we all know you love!

So, we asked Maurice, in one minute, to tell us what he watches in 100 meters!
