Race Pace Jess explains why she decided against running during pregnancy.
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. She’s featured in a cute Nike commercial, packing her locker room bag before the games. Here’s a still from the video:
Here are the essentials she’s taking to Rio:
Nike Vapor track and field kit with Nike AeroSwift technology
ZOOM SUPER FLY ELITE SPIKE
NIKE FLEX TEAM USA Jacket
NIKELAB TEAM USA DYNAMIC REVEAL Jacket
NIKE HYPERSHIELD TEAM USA JACKET
HURLEY PHANTOM BEACHRIDER (USA)
And here’s a look at everything inside the athlete bags that are given to more than 1,200 U.S athletes, including Gardner, competing in the Rio Games.
