On Episode 20 of The Halfstep Pod, Connor and Grant discuss Grant's final week in Park City as he heads to Honolulu this weekend in preparation for the upcoming Olympics in Tokyo.
The guys then get into their race recap of the 2004 Athens Olympics 1500 meter final. A final that came down to Hicham El Guerrouj of Morocco, the 4 time World Champ at the distance searching for his elusive Olympic Gold, vs Bernard Lagat of Kenya, the man who had most recently beaten El Guerrouj before the Games and was already an Olympic Medalist. We encourage everyone to watch the race online before/after/while listening to the podcast to have the best experience! Just google "2004 Olympic 1500 final" for results. They talk about both runners' legacies in the sport, the somewhat sketchy era of track and field they existed in during the early 2000s, and a bunch of little details in the race that are often missed.
