On Friday evening—Saturday morning in Tokyo—olympic competitor Melissa Gonzalez completed second in the main warmth of the 400 meter obstacles at the 2020 Summer Olympics, qualifying her for the elimination round. Gonzalez, addressing the Colombian public group, ran a 55.37—her own best and a public record for the nation of Colombia.
Melissa Gonzalez might be seeking Colombia, yet the Olympian had one of the greatest American groups supporting her as she qualified for the ladies’ 400m obstacles elimination round on Saturday.
Gonzalez is the spouse of Detroit Lions quarterback David Blough, who was watching in Michigan after his group’s third instructional course practice. Lions lead trainer Dan Campbell wished Gonzalez karma during his Friday morning public interview.
“I need to hope everything turns out great for Melissa Blough of karma this evening and David, besides,” Campbell said. “We said something last night in the group meeting. I asked David, ‘When is Melissa running?’ He resembled, ‘8:00, tomorrow evening.’ The group man, they went off the deep end. Along these lines, that was quite cool. They’re all in order for it. We’ll watch her this evening.”
In a contacting conclusion, a few Lions players offered a best of luck to Melissa through a virtual message recorded Friday morning.
Gonzalez is next booked to run the 400-meter obstacles during the elimination round, which starts on Monday, August 2 at 7:35 a.m. ET. Across the world, her better half will be taking the training field simply an hour after the fact for the Lions’ first instructional course practice before a public crowd.
