OTC Elite's Hassan Mead & His Ties To Minneapolis | Beneath The Grandstand (Ep. 12)

Jun 15, 2020

Hassan Mead, now a professional runner for Nike's Oregon Track Club, graduated from high school and college in Minneapolis and grew up only a mile from the site of George Floyd's murder. Mead talks with Ryan and Alex about his experiences growing up in Minneapolis, how racism has reared its ugly head in his life and what the sport of track & field can do to help educate people about the struggles of black and people of color today.
