Remember September 2017 when I announced that German Alica Schmidt would be known as the “World’s Hottest Track Athlete” until another woman stepped up to take her crown? Yeah, well Alica is still holding the title belt and things seem to have heated up with her sponsor Puma because they hit me up today with a new 1:46 promo video featuring Alica on the run through a European city with Hollywood production value.
Guys, this is what happens when Busted Coverage bestows such titles upon athletes. One thing leads to another and brands are paying these athletes big money to wear their gear. Do I even ask for a pair of Puma running shoes out of the deal? No chance. I haven’t been on a run in several years. It was probably back when I put in two weeks of training for a Tough Mudder in Tahoe that I DID complete and left me in physical pain for about a week.
Anyway, I’ll just be out here researching candidates in preparation for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
