B&B (Video): The headline that still makes Ato cringe; and how he responded to Olympic ‘failure’

Trinidad and Tobago Hall of Fame sprinter Ato Boldon, a four-time Olympic medallist, track coach and NBC analyst, reveals the impact of a dismissive Trinidad Guardian headline when he was just 18-year-old—and explains how initial ‘failure’ at the Olympics spurred him and Jamaican legend Usain Bolt to new heights.

Look out for our full interview with Boldon on Sunday 22 August as we discuss his illustrious track career and NAAATT battles, the incomparable Usain Bolt, why Lamont Jacobs deserves the benefit of the doubt, and THAT letter to Maurice Greene.
