Byron Gibson: 100 Meter Olympic Hopeful

Alabama University alumni and post-collegiate track athlete Byron Gibson is putting in work. Training with Coach Steven Mcgill at Ravenscroft in Raleigh , NC , Byron Gibson is shifting all his focus toward qualifying for the 100 meter dash for the trials in Eugene , Oregon . As a training partner of Byron, I have really seen his improvements. I have also witnessed his times getting faster and faster. Byron is right on the edge of qualifying for the Olympic Trials.

Although, Byron is having much success in the 100 meter, He began the season with high hopes to qualify in the 110 meter high hurdles. This goal was deterred by his new form that was implemented this year. His new method of hurdling, is taking a while to come along. Byron Gibson is a name that we will hear more about in the near future.
