Ato Boldon interview in Spikes...


Over the years working televised track & field meets around the world, I've had the opportunity to work with various announcers and analysts.

One of the rising stars in television track & field meets is former UCLA sprinter Ato Boldon (above/photo courtesy Spikesmag.com), who brings a "tell it like it is" mentality to the screen, and is one that's willing to throw an opinion down that may get athletes (some of whom he's competed against) riled up.

I've always had a respect for folks who actually take the time to do the research on the sport, and not feed you the "when I competed, I did this" type of logic that inexperienced (or lazy) analysts try to ram down the audiences' throats.

Whether it's a meet like the Pac-10 Conference or NCAA meet, where the team battle is the story, or the Olympics, you can count on Ato Boldon to give viewers concise analysis on what's happening on the track.
