B;ake Leeper interview


Congratulations to GB’s Johnnie Peacock who stunned the star-studded 100m T44 final, but the a medal for embracing failure has to go to up-and-coming contender Blake Leeper (finished 5th). In his interview with NBC Sports on the marquee 100m showdown, Blake shares the following…

  • “I remember those times when I would come home and ask my mama and dad, ‘why me?’ I mean, why does this have to be me? But the older I got, I realised, it’s not ‘why me’, it’s ‘why not me?’ I feel like I’m meant for this moment”

Boundless inspiration from London at the moment.
