“I’ve been telling people for the longest amount of time, I was going to change track and field. I don’t know how I was going to do it. I don’t know when I was going to do it. I don’t know what I was going to come up with but I was going to do it…I meant that from the first time I said it to right now. I meant what I said. The first thing I saw that needed to change was what was going on in the mixed zone.”
We finally give our new co-host Katelyn Hutchison a proper introduction. She was a sprinter at Division III Ithaca College and will be using her final year of NCAA eligibility at Kentucky next year. In this episode, she chats about how her father inspired her love for track and field and made his own name for himself as a die-hard fan on Twitter. She’s carried on his legacy and started to make a name for herself within the track and field media space. Katelyn also shares her thoughts on where she sees her impact and role within the track and field media landscape that’s changing.
