Technique Track Club hosted the First Annual Tommie Smith Indoor Youth Invitational on January 18, 2015 at the Boo Williams Sportsplex in Hampton Virginia. This historical, AAU sanctioned meet was highlighted by Dr. Tommie Smith's address to 576 participating athletes and approximately 1500 coaches, parents and spectators. Dr. Smith and his wife, Delois, were gracious enough to make themselves available for an extended photo/autograph session after Dr. Smith shot the gun to start the first race. The event was supported by Boo WIlliams Sportsplex, the Hampton University Minority Men's Health Initiative and 100 Black Men. This event included a health fair where all present were able to receive free health screenings.
