One fine morning
Quiet morning here in the Athlete’s Village
That’s a picture of the Canada building. I’m staying right behind the tower in townhouse #6 with 7 other track athletes. Townhouse #6 is killing it by the way, check out the results so far…
Mo Ahmed: 28:13 in the 10,000 for 18th place and he’s still in University.
Cam “MF” Levins: 27:40 for 10th place in the 10,000m and has qualified for Saturday’s 5000m final with a PB (13:18).
Geoff Harris: Breaks 1:46 for the first time and qualified for the semi-finals in the 800.
Nate Brannen: Although bad luck struck Nate when he tripped up with the gangliest 1500m runner ever he easily made the semi’s and was poised to make the final. Heartbreaking actually. But 3:39 after hitting the track and getting stabbed by a French dude’s spikes is pretty badass.
Alex Genest: Hung with the lead pack in the steeple semi’s right until the the end and narrowly missed the final. Seasonal Best (8:22).
Derek Drouin: BRONZE medal in the High Jump!
Eric and I will have to dig deep on Sunday morning to keep the momentum of townhouse #6 rolling.
Three more runs, three more sleeps…
