Take A Peek Inside The Track Bag Of An Olympic Athlete

U.S. Track & Field athlete English Gardner will be competing in the 100 meters and 4 x 100-meter relay in Rio. She set a new personal best of 10.74 in the 100 meters when she won the race at the U.S. Track & Field Olympic Trials in July. You can watch her compete in the Rio Games on Friday, August 12, during the 100-meter qualifying rounds and again on Thursday, August 18, in the women’s 4 x 100m relay.
