Growing up in sandhill Mississippi, buoy was coaxed into track as a teenager, and quickly rose up the ranks as a sprinter and long jumper. She attended southern Mississippi, where she swept the long jump NCAA championships at the indoor and outdoor events in 2011. Buoy turned in an electric performance at the 2016 Rio Olympics, where she won silver in the 100 and bronze in the 200. She then ran the anchor leg on a four by 100 team with Tiana bartola, Allison Felix and English gardener to take gold. A year later, she won the 100 meters at the 2017 world championships in London. She also helped the four by 100 team to gold. She was a very enthusiastic, sparkling personality, said track coach Craig Poole, who worked with buoy early in her career, and again later.

Depends i guess on your definition of nhl regular if it's as one of the top six defencemen on in any chill team. I don't see it personally. I just think when you've led a player that when you're talking about a bottom perry kind of role who doesn't really standout on on either special teams. And i know he's got experienced playing peking and utica and you've got a little bit of that opportunity in vancouver but that's not necessarily been a hallmark of his game. He doesn't really have you know when he's played these sheltered minutes. He hasn't really had standard offensive ability. He's not really the physical presence. That i think a lot of teams kinda covet. Lower down the lineup as well so while i think there are any tools in his game. It's tougher me this. what exactly. What exact identity. He's going to carve out if he's going to be an everyday. Nhl player unless the skating improves. Which has always been the the big question mark in recent history so for me. I could see him being perhaps a number seven number eight defenseman but as a regular nhl everyday player. Who's shooting for sixty seventy games I personally still skeptical. What did you make the contract yesterday. The one year deal for a league minimum seven hundred fifty kid. I think it makes sense for both sides. Obviously i think a lot of people looked at you.

There are three. i think. Horses in that race with hunt rathbone and you levian. Only two of those guys are gonna win job so by signing this deal. Yes he. he'll he'll only get the league minimum. But if you get sent down if it doesn't seem out of camp then he's guaranteeing himself in nhl paycheck as opposed to the two way contract where he hopes to move what lasts if you've got waived and sent down to the minors and then you know it's interesting to were obviously provides a team a little bit of benefit and By being the cheapest option of hunt eh.

We're talking about like how parents would come in and try and coach their kids during a timeout. When you're not even a coach. And i was like one of them says parents. Hey make sure blah goes here. And i'm like you won the world cup and yet you coach soccer never ends i just i can imagine when he you know again like we're all just trying. That's what you what.
