This is Coffee with Larry for Monday, July 17, 2023.
Coffee With Larry is the almost daily (six days a week) podcast from RunBlogRun on the news of the world on track & field.
Sucking down a cup of Joe, yours truly speaks for 30 minutes (well, sometimes I go longer), on topics that get me interested.
Our topics today:
1. The Memorial Kamila Skolimoswka had 23,000 fans on Sunday, July 16.
2. The race of the meet was Sha’Carri Richardson dueling with Shericka Jackson. Sha’Carri needed 80 meters to get even and the last fifteen meters had her speeding away, taking the definitive win.
3. This is the complete results on the Silesia Diamond League meeting, https://www.runblogrun.com/2023/07/silesia-kamila-skolimowska-memorial-stadion-slaski-chorzow-pol-16-july-2023.html
