This years annual meeting was in Daytona Beach, FL and the city was ready for us.  We had great discussions on the inner workings of our sport and this was an election year.  On the athletes side of things we elected new officers for the TFAA, AAC, USOC Reps and the BOD.  Many of us were reelected to continue to serve in our current roles.  I was reelected to the Board of Directors.  Stephanie Hightower was reelected as our President of USATF. We were very busy but got a lot of work done.

One of my highlights of this years annual meeting was presenting the award for Best Male Olympic Performance at the Jesse Owens awards banquet.  This was my 1st time using a teleprompter, which was pretty cool.  The winner of the award was Will Claye who won medals in both the Triple Jump and the Long Jump, the last time anyone has done that was 1936.  As always it was great to see all of our sports stars in place.

This event is going to be televised on Dec. 27th on NBC Sports Network 7-8pm Eastern Time.  So make sure you tune in and give The Sport of Track and Field some love!

I have to give a Special Shout Out to Michelle Carter for helping me with my make up!!  Check her out @ShotDiva
