Running Things with Donovan Bailey
Taunting, Marketing & the Social Tools of Sport.
In episode 6, the hosts, Donovan Bailey and Simon Jain, touch base on the first post Olympic track meet, and the return, and subsequent loss of the maligned Sha'cari Richardson. Did social media and over-marketing play a factor? Are we missing the real story form the Prefontaine championships? Did the natural powers of the wind create personal bests? The debate exposes a few insights and leads into how far athletes should go on social media; and does using these platforms to their fullest, interfere with their performance or reputation.
