ELITETRACK Best of 2009

0

The new decade is almost here. 2009 was a good one for track and field in general as well as ELITETRACK. The continued dominance of Usain Bolt, Berlin World Championships, no major drug busts, and some of the best sprint performances from both the men and women that have ever been seen. We had some great discussions on the forum as well. In the second annual Best of ELITETRACK edition I’d like to highlight some our top forum and blog postings of the last year.
