TEAM USATF SUPERLATIVES AT THE 2018 IAAF WORLD INDOOR CHAMPIONSHIPS

| 0 Comments

The USATF team at the World Indoors Championships goal was 17 medals, and they achieved 18! A fantastic group of young and old athletes, Team USATF kicked the proverbial butt.

A group of fine athletes, and an honor to their country, @theshoeaddicts and @runblogrunn did tons of interviews with the athletes and we will be posting them over the next few weeks.

This is from the USATF communication team, which was superb, special thanks to Ashley Mitchell and Josh Gurnick, who survived my questions each and every session and provided even some geek stuff to help @runblogrun provide better coverage for our readers!

I love this report, on the superlatives from Team USATF!
