Ali on the Run Show Episode 543: World Athletics Championships Recap, Part I with Jay Holder

“You said, ‘I could never do that.’ And that actually made me think that you could do it. Because it made me think about what you do every day, and it just felt like you’d be a natural at that role. So that’s where we’re at.

Hi from the Pacific Northwest! I’m coming to you today from Eugene, OR, where I’m working on site as the press conference moderator for the 2022 World Athletics Championships. (How cool is that?!) In this episode, I’m joined by Jay Holder, Vice President of Marketing and Communications at Atlanta Track Club, to talk about our respective roles at World Championships and our experiences so far. We talk about how I got this job, what it actually entails, and what the highlights have been so far. We’re working hard, getting just enough sleep to get by, and having a lot of fun along the way. (Check out Jay’s previous appearances on the Ali on the Run Show, talking about his role at the 2020 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials, and about working as the deputy venue media manager for last summer’s Tokyo Olympics.)
