You may remember my interview with Dennis Mitchell, the head coach with Star Athletics at the National Training Center in Clermont, Florida.
That was back in April 2012.
Prior to coaching, he has won numerous medals at the Olympics and World Championships in both 100 meters and the 4×100 meter relay.
His personal best is 9.91 and still holds the American record in the 4x100m relay set way back in 1992.
