Recommended Posts

Goodwin, who finished 10th in the long jump at the 2012 Games, hasn’t competed in track since 2016 when he failed to qualify for the Olympics a second time. But he said he was “100 percent committed” to trying to qualify for Team USA next summer.

Good for him, it’s his dream. But I think he’s a better football player when he’s not focusing on his Olympic training. I don’t know if the niners will love this news.

Interesting article on peak ages for track and field athletes.

https://travelingtrackster.wordpress.com/2014/09/23/track-field-peak-athletic-age/

Goodwin will be 29 next summer, which puts him at the tail end of average peak age for his events, so it's not enormously unlikely that he could qualify for the team. I hope he makes it.

His dream. However when he actually just focused on football in San Fran he turned himself into a pretty legit threat at WR. I think trying to qualify for Olympics is gonna set him back again.

As others have said it’s his dream. But, he’ll have to cut his weight and BF. Which is not ideal for his frame when playing football.

You may not like him but I think the word average is a bit much here

We will see. Part of that might’ve been having a qb and offensive scheme that worked.

No kidding! Who would want to trash the guys dream? Loved the pic of him in the snowstorm. This is obviously something important to him, and I wish him all the best.

Jesus thinks Goodwin used the Bills to fund his Olympic dreams.  Jesus thinks Goodwin didn't try/avoided injury whilst a Bill, so he could pursue his Olympic dreams.  Goodwin is a sinner.

If you know this because of a call or text to your cell, I will start being nicer to you. 

 

I need all the help I can get......

He hasn't competed in track since 2016 (when he didn't make the team)...and he wants to play a year of football and then qualify of the 2020 Olympics?

 

That's cool but.....zero point zero chance.
