The first time Wallace Spearmon
ran at the Olympic Trials as a 19-year old in 2004, he admits, "I had no idea what I was doing." One of his heroes, Justin Gatlin,
was in the same first round heat of the 200. Spearmon ignored his coach's advice to run his own race, tried to beat Gatlin, and each round after that got progressively worse.
