Athing, family, support, hug after 800 Meters Oly Trials Records, June 27, 2021--_Wa_ big-

Big-time "Wa"! Athing with family and other supporters after 
the triumphant race. We may say, too, that the "Soul" of athletes
is often evident in Track & Field.

EARLIER SCREEN-SHOTS 

Selemon, Mondo, Jakob.png

'Young Giants Are Coming in Track & Field' in November 2018 profiled a few of 
the ground-breakers then emerging in their generation. Selemon Barega of Ethiopia, Armand ("Mondo") Duplantis of Sweden and Louisiana, and Jakob Irbrigtsen, the youngest of three record-setting brothers in Norway, are here. They've since continued to do great things. Their eyes explore depths and horizons. All will be in Tokyo 2021.

Shelley-Ann and Zyon.png

Shelley Anne Fraser Pryce of Jamaica at age 21 won the Women's 100 Meters
in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. She's since won 10 more Gold Medals at Olympic
and World Championships. Allyson Felix, whose World Championship Medals
began at age 17, has a comparable record of victories and awards over 200 and
400 Meters. Above she's with then two-year-old Zyon, her son with HYusband Jason, after winning the Women's 100 Meters at the 2019 Doha World Championships.
