I have been caught up in the Olympic trials also. I don't know what is different this year but it seems as if the athletes are much more down to earth this year. Maybe it's me but I don't see them as untouchable celebrities this year as I have in the past. I really sense a true love of the game when I listen to the interviews. Good for them. If you missed the Kara Goucher interview after the 10,000 meters you should check it out. She is a total geek just like us!! I love it, what a real person.
Thanks for listening
