Let me start by saying how ridiculously proud I am of my brother.

His work ethic and dedication to his sport is tremendous

To all who have and will continue to support him THANK YOU.

___________________

A true champion.

Dorian has been injured since last summer

He just moved to Portland in March to start training with new couch Alberto Salazar

We didn’t know if he would even be able to compete at the trials, let alone be a contender

But he was RIGHT there

lacking his characteristic finishing speed, but it will come, we have no doubts

The moral of this story is: he trained for three months and was not only able to show up for, but compete in the OLYMPIC TRIALS

I know he is disappointed, of course he is.  He is a professional athlete.  Every time he steps on the track he strives to win.  We are so proud of the hard work he has put in and sacrifices he has made to get to this point this year.  It was no small task.

Expect great things to come.
