Drew Windle won his first global medal at the World Indoors in Birmingham, England, March 1-4, 2018. Drew had run a stellar race to make the team in Albuquqerque, and his races in Birmingham were also well crafted. Adding to the drama for Mr. Windle, he was disqualified from the final for 86 minutes. Thanks to the tireless efforts of his coach, Danny Mackey and USATF officials, Drew was reinstated and his first global medal was a reality.
What do we know about Drew Windle? Do you know his parents and girlfriend try to visit most of his races? Drew gave us a ton of time in Birmingham on the night of his silver medal performance.
We sent out an FB live video, but this is the HD coverage of the Shoe Addicts from the post event interview. Drew Windle race tactics reminds me of David Wottle, the 1972 Olympic gold medalist. Windle has great leg speed over the last 200 meters.
This young middle distance racer has some even finer races in his future.
