The following is a Q & A with Brittney Reese
How has practice been going this year?
Practice has been going good for me this year. I feel I am right where I want to be at this time of the year in my training.
Are you doing any special training for this Olympic Year?
There is nothing special I am doing this year in training. I didn’t want to change anything that I had been doing the past years so we kept everything the same.
How many times have you competed at the Jamaica Invitational?
This will be my 2nd time at this meet
How would you rate the Jamaica Invitational – the Fans, Track, etc?
This is a great meet to attend and I enjoyed myself the last time I came. I remember the stadium being packed with fans and that’s important to the athletes when we are competing.
What are your expectations for this meet and the rest of the year?
I don’t go into any meet with expectations I just want to make sure I go out there and have fun and be a competitor that giving day.
How many competitions would you want to have before the Olympic Games?
The past years have been around 7 or 8 so that’s probably how many I will have again.
How did you utilize last years’ off-season downtime away from the track?
Honestly I didn’t do anything but spend time with my family for 2 weeks and got right back into training
Do you have any passions other than Track and Field?
Before I started track and field I was into basketball. I love the game even though I don’t get to play as much anymore.
After this years’ Jamaica Invitational, where will you be competing next?
I will be returning back to the United States for a meet in Arizona on May 19th
