The 2019 Pre Classic will be held at Stanford University on 30 June 2019. This is an extraordinary year, as the meet, previously the Hayward Field since 1975, was moved for one year, due to the renovations or rebuilding of Hayward Field this year.
The Pre Classic gave American fans a chance to see top class global athletes in a setting like the meets in Scandanavia that many of us dreamed of attending.
This year, the folks in Nike’s sports medicine deparment and Meet director Tom Jordan have been busy translating the Pre meet to the Stanford campus.
In this podcast, done in 2018, we speak of the importance of the Pre Meet!
