    IMO, entrance in any USATF Championship event should count as a where-about notification.

    If I were an athlete, one missed tezt would get my full attention, not to mention two. I find it hard to give athletes the benefit of the doubt in this day and age when they all know the consequences...

    Of course the Associated Press has been around for eons, but I only recall seeing ap.org, not apnews.com though I don't doubt what you're saying.

    My bad, you're right. I assumed that it was a different and perhaps less reputable website. A common tactic of internet fraudsters is using familiar looking addresses to trick people.

    No one really knows what Allyson Felix has made in her career or what McLaughlin is making, nor do we know how different athletes have managed their money. Maybe Felix is set for life but it wouldn't...

    I wouldn't go that far. There are plenty of speed merchants playing college football, some of whom have never competed in organized track and field.

    I wonder how fast Tony Martin can ride in a contraption like that. I'm sure he can generate a lot more than 700 watts for one minute.

    On the flip side, the same could be said of Jan Ullrich, who was a notoriously bad descender.

    Of course you have to be a strong cyclist to set a record like this but you don't have to be the strongest cyclist. Similarly, the fastest descender in the Tour de France is undoubtedly a strong...

    I look at records like these the same way I look at bench press records set with weightlifting vests on. It's more of a daredevil stunt than a measure of athletic prowess.

    And even that was at altitude with the assistance of a banked track. On a flat road, at sea level, in a still wind, with no draft assistance, anything over 40 mph would be a challenge for the best...

    I find that most high school and college track and field athletes aren't fans of the sport even while they're competing. It's only at elite programs that athletes can even name the top pros in their...

    So Skipper improved is PR by 24cm in the 4 years following high school? My guess is that it would exceed Mondo's wildest dreams if he improved his PR by 24cm any time before he retires.

    The difference is easy to see on tracks that have 200 start marks on both sides. For those tracks, look at the difference between the 800 start marks and the 200 start marks, there's a slight offset.

    Even the 1st leg can have an artificially slow split if the 2nd leg takes the baton from a standstill. The anchor is the only leg that pretty much controls his/her own destiny when comes to relay...
