Justin Gatlin hasn't felt this lean or this quick or even this hungry - he's cut way back on cheeseburgers and chocolate - in quite some time.
Using a shorter, more compact stride, the American sprinter is off to an 11-0 start in 100-meter races this season, although none have been against a certain person named Usain Bolt.

Alysia Montano is the defending national champion in the 800-meter women’s race. Unfortunately, the speedster came in last at the 2014 USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships on Thursday. Although, she did have a pretty decent excuse. Montano ran the 800-meter race on Thursday while eight months pregnant. With that in mind, you should probably […]
Five-time national champion Alysia Montano, 34-weeks pregnant, ran the 800 meters race on Thursday in the U.S. Track and Field Championships, finishing in 2 minutes, 32.13 seconds – only 35 seconds slower than her personal best of 1:57.34 in 2010, reports the AP, via USA TODAY Sports.

The Oscar Pistorius murder trial took an interesting turn on Wednesday when the six-time Paralympic gold medalist testified that he accidentally fired the shots that killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Pistorius’ defense all along has been that he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder, but not that the actual gunfire was a mistake. Pistorius was being […]
