Maggie Vessey — Early July, 2009
Context & Details
This is another one from the early days of Flotrack workout videos.
Ryan Fenton tagged along with Maggie for a pre-race workout before she competed at the Paris Golden League meeting. She had already won the Pre Classic, the US Champs and Rome 800m that year and was having a breakout season after a disappointing 2008 year which saw her fail to make the Olympic team.
She would go on to run 1:57, her lifetime best, at Monaco in late July, weeks after this session.
It is low budget and gritty footage by today's standards, but the content is authentic with a sincere dialogue between Ryan and Maggie, filled with a few priceless gems.
I hope you're enjoying (re)visiting these vintage Flotrack.org workout videos as much as I did.
