After missing the Olympic Games in 2012, LaShawn Merritt is ready to make his return in Rio.
At the 2016 Road to Rio Media Summit this past Tuesday, LaShawn talked about his personal journey over the past several years. As he told Voice of America:
“I’m just ready to get back to the Olympic Games,” he said, “where everyone’s watching, the lights are on, the lights are bright, I’m 110 percent prepared, and going out and execute. That’s what I’m looking forward to.”
