So, anyone who reads @runblogrun on a regular basis knows that, when given the chance, I will ask questions galore at a press conferences. Many times, there are only a few questions being asked.
My question for Ewa Swoboda: Given your recent world leaders in Karlsruhe, and your big win in Lodz, how do you describe the improvements in your sprinting?
My question to Marie Jose Ta Lou: Why are you so popular with your fans in C’ote D’Ivoire? My taxi driver in Boston was so excited that I had interviewedr you in past events.
My question to Sam Kendricks and Pawel Wojciechowski: Why do pole vaulters always look as if they are having fun?
Ewa Swoboda was a bit perplexed, but noted that she had improved several parts of her discipline this past season.
Marie Jose Ta Lou was pleased with the question and noted that her countrymen and women now know that African women can race with the very, very best in the world.
Sam Kendrick and Pawel Wojciechowski both agreed that they compete against the heights not each other.
