“The caption I kept seeing was ‘Women supporting women.’ … I could feel Sara Hall & Emma Bates. You know that dance move where someone throws out a fishing line? I could see them and I felt like they were reeling me in…That’s really special to have because we’re also competitors.”
Chris Chavez, David Melly and Dana Giordano speak with American record holder Keira D'Amato after she finished 8th at the World Athletics Championships Marathon with just 17 days of training. The American women placed 5th, 7th and 8th with Sara Hall and Emma Bates finishing ahead of D'Amato. Keira discusses how she changed her training to get ready for the race, her plan to go up against the best in the world and then the toll the race took on her body.
