I was in the Stade De France when Evan JÃ¤ger ran out of his head and, even falling, ran 8:00.45. It was crazy brilliant. I remember saying F#CK when he fell, I think I have it on tape! I was there in Engenhao Stadio Olimpico when Evan JÃ¤ger took the silver medal in the Olympic steeplechase. That teared me up. I was there in London when Evan JÃ¤ger took World Champ bronze in the steeplechase. I was happy he got the medal.
Evan JÃ¤ger is a once in a generation athlete. But, in all of his interviews, he has that Midwestern comfortability in his own skin, he enjoys the sport and still enjoys speaking with the media, and he does not seem changed by his growing celebrity.
Lots of athletes were cut in 2018, probably most cut since 1990. Evan JÃ¤ger is a fine asset for the brand Nike and for the sport.
Congrats Evan! You deserve it!
