    Your misquoting a bit. He doesn't coach her (unless it was mentioned somewhere else) he was speaking about when he trained with her before retiring and her potential based on hand times that she has hit

    He said he has seen her run 10.5/10.3 hand timed on the stop watch in practice (he said this super casually in conversation, not as a definitive statement). But regardless, its actually not hard to believe. Imagine the watch said 10.39 for example, add .24, that gets you 10.63. Adjust a bit for for maybe wind and perfect conditions in practice, that gets you closer to her converted PB of 10.69 (10.77 -1.2).

    This is the interview timestamped at the part they start talking about Sha'Carri: https://youtu.be/6Aj8EiIBNqU?t=1105
    In this same interview, he also said his PB was 9.73. Yes only .01 off, but it adds the mystique when talking to non track people. Take his words with a grain of salt.

      Not remotely a pot/kettle situation.

      • She will continue to receive ridicule and disdain as long as she keeps running her mouth more than her feet.

        • Right now she's Ryan Leaf/Vince Young.

          She's still young enough to be Peyton Manning.

          Maybe a closer comparison would be Randy Moss who was a wildly talented but mouthy obnoxious guy who is now insightful, folksy and hilarious. Bryce Harper comes to mind as well.

          Either way it's up to her. No excuses accepted.
          You there, on the motorbike! Sell me one of your melons!

          • To those saying she doesn't speak the language of her generation...you need to get out more and mix with people from different backgrounds. Just because your children don't speak that way, it doesn't mean others of that age group don't.

            Ever seen Bad Girls Club? Love, Hip Hop Atlanta? Joselines Cabaret? One More Chance? Theres enough trash TV on US networks that show many young people speak exactly like her (and actually much, much worse)

              Because Trash TV is such an accurate barometer of our culture . . .

                When she dominated the NCAA and OLY trials last year, she was just unstoppable and had a great story to go along with her physical skills. Who could forget her running into the stands to hug her Grandmother after winning the OLY Trials. She sad a tough upbringing and unbeatable confidence. I was loving every minute of her as I thought we finally had an American woman who could compete with the Jamaicans on the world stage. Since then, the debate is whether or not this train is still on the tracks. As I've said earlier, I'm rooting for her but she needs to start running and winning.

                  While I agree with your sentiment, unfortunately, I think it is.
