The men to beat in global 800m running has cut his season short, thanks to a nagging case of Plantar Fasciits in his right foot.
The 23 year old American 800m specialist has won 10 races in a row, including most recently the Monaco Diamond League (1:43.15WL) and Stockholm Diamond League events (1:43.76).
Winning Instead of Whining
Brazier’s coach, Pete Julian, reported that Brazier has been dealing with “one of those types of injuries that most runners can relate to. Not bad enough to stop but not good enough to bring fuzzy happiness. It’s all always about finding the right combination of what you can and cannot do.
“As long as he was getting through the training and making a little bit of progress from week to week, and with the support of his doctor, I welcomed the adversity as a teaching tool. He did a great job keeping his head straight and focusing on winning instead of whining. By Stockholm, his foot was feeling better and you could tell in the way he raced.”
