The USATF Foundation is spot on with their mission to support athletes like myself who don’t have the media attention and financial backing of some of the more popular events. We are the true underdogs of the organization and you make it your mission to make sure that we are not left behind. In my specific case, what you provided was a way for my coach to travel to the biggest competition of my lifetime. Without that piece of the puzzle filled in, I would not have been able to accomplish this wonderful gold medal performance. Thank you to the Foundation for the past support and future support of athletes in the sport of track and field.
