February 11, 2012

PROVIDENCE – Precision, particularly in the short sprints, is often crucial in the outcome. One minor glitch at the beginning could determine who walks away with the gold and who settles for the silver.

“I never got the top speed and my start was awful,” said Evans, after finishing second in the dash with a time of 6.5 seconds. “In the middle of the race, I just lost it.”
