NEW YORK – Tyson Gay turned to Jamaica’s Asafa Powell and Richard Thompson of Trinidad and Tobago, sitting at the podium with him, and laid out the atmosphere for the Reebok Grand Prix Saturday at Ichan Stadium.
(Pictured: Fort Knox junior Courtney Edwards) The 2009 Kentucky State Track Meet is a perfect example of why I love track and field. Just like any sport, athletes and coaches work hard all season long with the end goal of competing well in the post-season. The conditions Friday and Saturday just made it seem like this weekend had to be great. Guess what…it was. This does not mean the meets went without controversy but when does anything happen without making someone upset. A meet attendance record was set with over 10,200 tickets purchased to the meet.
What a State Meet. Two great days of track and field action have finished. Congratulations to all the athletes I have 761 pictures from AAA to post tonight or tomorrow morning.
