From there he missed the 2016 Olympics by ONE spot, tried out for the Atlanta Falcons, and even became a financial planner. That was until he realized what he left out on the track and his burning desire brought him back. Hear Garretts story of growth, grit, and a 2021 4th place Olympic finish here on the Grit.org Podcast!
