Matthew Elliott's 2013 season was one that inspired the track community with hope. At the beginning of the USA final in Des Moines, everyone in the stands looked across the start line and said "who is that guy in the Brooks top?" But by the end the dialogue changed to a resounding "who the hell is Matthew Elliott!?"
After finishing 4th, the dream season forged on. Elliott chased for a standard, with a glimmer of hope that maybe the full time teacher from South Carolina could represent Team USA in Moscow. We followed Elliot to Europe and watched him PR and live the dream that he once thought might never come true.
