Thank you, the board members and the Foundation for the support. I appreciate the well wishes so much. It was the most fantastic moment of my life – winning the Prefontaine Classic 800 meters – and the Foundation helped to make it possible and the people involved were there to witness it. What a perfect situation. It is an honor to be affiliated with this foundation and I hope I am making you all proud of your decision to fund me.
