Wallace Spearmon Jr. is as fierce as they come on the track. As America’s 200-meter standout, he can be seen lining up in the blocks along side some of the world’s quickest men, confident and never intimidated. While most look at Usain Bolt, Yohan Blake and now Warren Weir, as unbeatable Jamaican powerhouses, Spearmon sees them as just within his reach. He’s represented the United States in two Olympic Games now and has unfortunately come home empty handed in both attempts. While this is a source of frustration for Spearmon, he uses it as utter motivation to train like he’s never trained before for the next four years, with one goal in mind. With an impressive fourth place finish this year in London, Spearmon already has his sights set on a medal in Rio 2016 and nothing’s going to get in his way. Not even Jamaica’s finest.
Both rounds of the Games in London featured exhilarating track and field performances. Oakley athletes of all kinds succeeded during the second round of competition (especially those from the host nation).
A pair of British athletes have proven quite successful in the field discipline of discus in London. Both athletes secured podium spots in their various categories at the 2012 Games.
