I don’t think we have a thread or anything for this but what a powerful speech.  His sentencing hearing was yesterday and this speech by Aly Raisman is incredibly powerful.

Kind of feels like it could go in the penn state / Michigan state thread but the dude is a monster for sure.

Anyone else watching the US Track and Field Olympic trials? Justin Gatlin is 39 yo and still out there mixing it up! Also, Allyson Felix is going  to the Olympics for the fifth time.

Looks like an exciting new crop of mens and womens sprinters coming up for the red white and blue.

My whole family was locked in to this last night, it was awesome. Allyson Felix in that 400 was easily the highlight of the night. Felt sad for Gatlin, of course he looked like an old man in the final.

Felt bad for Donovan Brazier in the 800M last night. I don't know if he is hurt or sick or what. He just melted away over the final 150M.

Update. They're trying to hold my girl back from participating this year. Apparently found some steroid in her body, that she says was due to a burrito.

It was literally too hot for him to handle.
