After leading part of the race Monday in Beijing at the IAAF World Outdoor Championships, Evan slipped back to sixth place over the final 300 meters. The American record holder left the track disappointed, but appreciates all of the support from his friends, family and fans and looks forward to getting back out on the track soon.
Extremely disappointed in my race yesterday. It really hurts to work so hard for something all year only to have it come crashing down on you. I didn't show the potential that I had earlier this year, which makes the defeat even tougher. I'm so proud of all of my @bowermantc teammates for how they ran yesterday. I love these people and I'm happy I get to share the good times and the bad times with such great people.
