    I was awfully impressed by Bishop's Pan-Am win over Montano. I would not be surprised to see her on the podium in Beijing.

    Tilastopaja shows a throw of 20.57 for Ahmed in Cairo in March. IAAF doesn't list that mark. But if they accepted the entry, I assume they were satisfied that the mark was legit.

    At the World Juniors in Eugene last year, the Nike swoosh was removed from the scoreboard (or covered up), all of the officials were in adidas uniforms, and there was no sign of Nike at all except...

    At the time, though, Epps was even lower on the food chain. Neither had made the IAAF qual standards, but Orji had a better mark and would have been invited sooner if, as it happened, neither made...

    The longer, the better. Knowing that samples can always be re-tested should help deter athletes who know that they can get away with certain substances and techniques now but can't know how...

    60m was never a WR distance, and no WIRs were ratified until the 1980s.

    Perhaps that's cuz they knew that she was on the list and therefore did not name her to their team. If so, they would be correct in saying that none of the 2015 has been affected by the retroactive...

    Actually, the IAAF did not say that they aren't entered. They said that the few athletes among the 28 who are still active are being provisionally suspended and none of them will be competing in...

    If that were the rule, then you'd open up the possibility of time-consuming and boring gamesmanship. A top jumper might come in at a low height and take a deliberate miss at heights he/she would...
