Jay Hicks & John W. Davis catch up with Michael Johnson at the U.S. Olympic Trials.
Timing is everything in this world. At the U.S. Olympic Trials, John W. Davis and I had the opportunity to speak with Michael Johnson in the "mix zone" about his rising sports agency. The "mix zone" is a holding pen for the media horde comparable to the movie star/paparazzi scene at the Cannes Film Festival
Currently Johnson's roster of athletes includes: Jeremy Wariner, Natasha Hastings, Eboni Floyd, and Jacquelyn Johnson.
Everyone on his crew earned a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team. Jeremy Wariner is leading the U.S. efforts to sweep the men's 400-meters in Beijing. Natashing Hastings and Eboni Floyd are members of the relay pool for the women's 4x400-meter relay. Jacqueline Johnson placed a very respectable second place in the women's heptathlon.
I can be seen on the left side of the video and John is filming the question and answer session with 200 and 400-meter world record holder Michael Johnson at the U.S. Olympic Trials. John W. Davis, a talented news personality, is holding down the filming and he edited and published the piece.
