Running and him running away…
Oh no! Hope you will be back on the tracks soon my hurdler. ??
Ha! Grant Holloway would have had his way with him regardless, but speedy recovery Omar.
This is a buzz-kill! However, I rather have McLeod healthy when it matters in August!
Wats up with MacLeod
Get batter Omar u soon be back strong as possible
McLeod is a warrior from Champs days. The brave may fall but never yield. There is nothing wrong in sitting out a meet if he’s not 100% fit. When the right time comes, we will see who is the last man standing.
Yeah. Halloway hurt McLeod’s feelings in Doha and made him crash like a bumper car. It would be a psychological advantage if Halloway beat him this early in an Olympic year. Coward man keep sound bone.
McLeod really hurt or he is just running from Grant Holloway. Grant is on top of his game and will take down anyone that face up to him now.
Still, I hope McLeod is not seriously hurt and will be back in action soon.
