Larry’s Deep Thoughts:

There are always surprises during an Olympic build-up. Some athletes soar, some athletes whither.

Some new athletes are surprised; some veteran athletes see that the time has come to either change events or move on with their lives.

The attention is in the details, and many athletes will build to Eugene and then Paris.

Last weekend, Gabby Thomas, the US champion at 200 meters last year, ran the 100m and 200m, and she just did not run as fast as many expected.

On social media, Gabby noted that she was in a hard training block and that her racing was not where she wanted it to be, but she also felt that she needed to race as she had promised the meet director and her fans.

Things happen. One must remember the goals of the season!

Gabby Thomas delivers from 100 meters to 400 meters!
