    I wonder if she will switch if she is required to actually go to Sierra Leone in order for her to be selected for the Sierra Leone team.

    Most times I don't agree with Beebee. However, I do understand his anger at the corruption that has been a cancer in the NCAA for decades. The US Government needs to get involved in order to clean...

    The most dominant thrower in history for any particular era is Val Adams. However, she is only the 23rd best performer in history. And her best performance is not even in the top 100 best...

    One of the things I loved about my time at West Point is that the student-athlete cadets at USMA are first and foremost students with no slack given for an outstanding athlete. If you do not make the...

    UNC is not alone here.

    This has been the "wink wink" cancer that has been around for decades at major college programmes. This is what happens when there are hundreds of millions of dollars at...

    I had accepted that I was banned for life, even though I was somewhat miffed that "druggies" who were also supposedly banned for life were being reinstated. I was, I think, the last of the ITA...

    Should College Athletes Be Paid?

    An excellent article on the TNF front page "The Day's Best Reading"

    I am one of those who believes that College athletes:

    Should not be paid; but

    They should be able to get full scholarships...

    Agree totally - and it is unfair and pathetic of the IAAF to use Schippers in this way.
    A pity Lord Coe doesn't use his influence to also criticise his colleagues for such an obvious race inspired...

    For what its worth I think she is the best bet for being #1 in both sprints next year.

    I guess how well she does next year depends on much effort she puts into high jumping, shot, javelin and the...

    I think to be AOY one should at least be a strong #1 in at least one event.

    Schippers is not close to #1 in either the heptathlon or 100m. There are solid arguments for her to be #1 in the 200m,...

    There are good arguments for all 3. Schippers was indeed as impressive as anybody; her primary goal was presumably the Europeans. She won both. But, besides Schippers, the Europeans did not have the...

    I fail to understand why you think Schippers had an AOY great sprint season. She was #13 performer for the 100m; she had zero of the top 25 performances for the 100m. Tories Bowie had a better sprint...

    Always difficult to know how to assess marathon runners when they often only have 1 performance, or 2 at the most. Kimeto's performance is far, far in front of Gatlin. In saying that I am not trying...
