World lead in Arizona
20th March 2016
Last Friday, Jeshua Anderson opened up his track season with a 49.61 in Tucson, Arizona, as he builds up to the Olympic trials.
“Watching Jeshua’s run showed me how much the training we have been doing is working,” reflected coach MacDonald. “He looked really relaxed and strong which is what we have been working on.”
“I look forward to letting loose and running very well next weekend in Phoenix.”
“We look forward to building of this performance and running better every time we touch the track.”
Jeshua returned to Washington at the end of last season to be reunited with the coach that guided him to three NCAA titles in four years at Washington State University. He has been working away since the move and was happy with how he opened up.
“I am pretty satisfied with my performance on Friday night,” commented Jeshua. “My main focus was to shake the first race jitters out and get back into competition mode for this Olympic year.”
“With it being my first race I ran really easy and conservative the whole race but, I look forward to letting loose and running very well next weekend in Phoenix.”
Jeshua returns to action at Paradise Valley next weekend, a place he knows very well having trained there for three years at ALTIS.
