Something doesn’t seems right here. I admire the nominee as a great athlete and ambassador in the sport but i am puzzled by the exclusion of Allison Felix in this conversation. Allison’s accomplishments is beyond the reach of her competitors or maybe beyond the eyesights of the judges.
Congratulations and best wishes Ms Shelly.
