    Diuretics are easily detectable, and NOP athletes are the most tested in the country.

    Dawn Harper-Nelson got busted for a diuretic she was prescribed in the ER for high blood pressure. She tried looking it up, but did it wrong, so she thought she was ok when she wasn't. USADA made her...

    Those streams exist for Diamond League meets/World Champs. IAAF is controlling that. Whether or not NBC had the option to stream them or not, I do not know. But the cameras are there, the technology...

    Yeah that is super gross.

    But the article is correct that it is pretty unlikely anyone would actually get chickenpox that way. Even when kids are in the room together sharing fresh lollipops at a...

    Yes, if their performances warrant it, but they additionally have to obtain and pay for their own testing to prove their T levels are below the limit for that sport.

    The camera crews were there at Worlds. That wasn't the issue.

    No one will tell me what the issue was.

    I am disappointed that each year we have seen a reduction in coverage, and I am very worried about whether or not field event prelims will be available for the Olympics this summer.

    I believe they have a more flexible arrangement worked out, I don't think he has to fly back from Europe for that weekend or anything like that.

    Remember a few years ago Sam had no formal fall...

    Sam is reserve. I don't know his exact commitments, but he has been very happy with the arrangement any time I have asked him.

    I believe Chelimo is part of the WCAP program.

    Sam is not. He...

    Sam seems happy winning almost every meet and not going for the world record. He has said point blank in the mixed zone something to the effect of the world record not being in the cards for him.

    If Mondo could maximize his abilities and consistency the way Sam does, he would be jumping like 6.10-6.30 every meet.

    That's not a knock on Mondo, Sam is just THAT good. I don't know if any...

    We had a long stretch at the beginning of the men's pole vault final where nothing else was happening, so they were discussing PV with Dan during their coverage.

    That's why the Rodgers/Gatlin exchange ended up out of the zone a couple years ago. Pushing the limit on Gatlin running a long leg means decreasing your wiggle room if anything goes wrong.

    The three year wait can be waived, and usually is, in terms of three years from the application date. But I think it would be hard to get it waived if it has been less than three years from the last...

    Good thing the IAAF clamped down on the DSD women who have an unfair advantage. That would have really spoiled this race.

    They are even lifting the tarps on some of the covered areas because they have enough fans to sit there.

    This was an issue a few years ago because Daniel Golubovich (I probably spelled his name wrong) made the Thorpe Cup team, but he has dual citizenship with Australia. So he...

    When do we ever get notification from any USATF committees? They very well could have approved it and no one knows, because of course the website is rarely updated.

    I could not believe Sam made 5.97, he was not terribly close on his first two attempts.
