A look back at the 2009 IAAF World Championships on Flotrack
I was looking through footage and thinking how much fun we had covering the World Championships this year. I put this video together to hopefully show how much we enjoyed being there. A big thanks goes to all the athletes for talking with us and being a part of what we do. They showed us some great things in Berlin and I hope the fans out there had a great experience following track and field this summer. It seemed like our presence was felt which gets me pumped for the future. We're going to keep coming with more and more so hold on and enjoy the ride. I'm sad to see the track season go, but I know it'll be back again before we know it!

Galen talks about his final year in college and how the training/race plan differed from his build up before Beijing.

Its been a long successful year and we hope Galen gets to enjoy his rest now before he gears up for 2010!
