Former Boone, FSU star Marvin Bracy calls Olympic bid best feeling ever

Marvin Bracy has waited a long time for this moment.

"Ever since I started running track, the goal was always Olympics, Olympics, Olympics," said Bracy, an Orlando Boone High graduate.

But even after the 100-meter dash final at the U.S. Olympic Trials on Sunday night in Eugene, Ore., Bracy had to wait a little bit longer to find out if he had officially earned a spot in next month's Rio Olympic Games.

It wasn't a photo finish, but it was too close to call at the wire.

"When the announcer said what was going on, I prayed that I got that spot," Bracy said. "And when that thing flashed, man … that was awesome. It was like the best feeling ever."

Bracy secured the final U.S. Olympic spot with a time of 9.98 seconds, two-hundredths ahead of Michael Rodgers at 10 flat.

Bracy wasn't the only one checking the competitors, praying and hoping.
