Cool Runnings: Meet The Freeze, Who Speeds Things Up At Braves Games

Jul 3, 2019

"The Freeze" is a welcome diversion at sweltering Atlanta Braves games. Wearing a full body leotard, the sprinting mascot races fans between innings of Atlanta's major league baseball games. He gives fans a giant headstart while managing to win ⁠— most of the time. 

One of the faces behind the mask this year is Durran Dunn. Dunn is a Jamaican sprinter who's competed in track and field championships around the world while representing the U.S. and Jamaica. On Second Thought producer La'Raven Taylor managed to catch up with Dunn and brought back this audio postcard.


Dunn has also participated in the annual AJC Peachtree Road Race, which gets underway in Atlanta for Independence Day.
