The World Track and Field Championships are in town and my good friend is an Olympic Hopeful. A large group of friends and I went to support Dameion Smith, a long time friend, in his quest to make the Olympic team. He competes in the Hammer throw. Unfortunately, he didn’t make the cut, but still finish 10th in the World. How many can say that, what a great accomplishment! He didn’t throw his best, but he finished a personal best. Congrats, but kind of bittersweet. Next year is his!
