2019 adidas Boost Boston Games Diary: Maurice Greene Explains it all, the long season, rivalries, and other important notions....


In 2016, the Mo & Larry Show began, as we did daily commentaries in Rio with Maurice Greene, the man who ruled the sprints in 1997-2001 and took his last medals in Athens 2004. An amazing sprinter, a consumate competitor, Maurice now coaches and has done work for Eurosport. Through the support of adidas, we have been able to work with Maurice in 2016 Rio and 2017 London. We are looking forward to checking in with one of our global favorites in Doha 2019.

We caught up with Maurice Greene, who is a brand ambassador for adidas, at the adidas Boost Boston Games presser on 14 June. Maurice expressed his concern, as coach, former athlete, on the length of the 2019 season. One should also note that the 2019 season will have huge repercussions on the Tokyo 2020 experience as well.

So, my thing about Maurice: he knew how to race, and he knew how to get under an athlete's skin. Sprint racing is outright warfare. It is jousting with blocks and sprint spikes. One guy wins. And Maurice knew that.

So, enjoy Maurice Greene's comments with RunBlogRun, and know that you can find him at runblogrun.com for his past commentary!
