Speed Unlimited athletes, coaches and parents spent an exciting afternoon on January 29th listening to and speaking with Team USA Members and Olympians Dan O’Brien and Ben Blankenship. Dan O’Brien, the 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist in the Decathlon, world record holder and 3-time World Champion and Ben Blankenship, a 2016 Olympian with an 8th place finish in the 1500m and a world record holder in the Medley Relay for Team USA did not disappoint as both told great stories of their careers and provided great insight into training and competition. The athletes also got pictures with them and got to ask questions and speak with them individually. Dan also brought his gold medal and everyone got a chance to hold it and see it up close.

 

Speed Unlimited was chosen by the USATF Foundation to host this exclusive event as part of the Foundation’s Run with US! Program. All very exciting for the club and the athletes! Go SpeedU!
