    They are not equal. Olympic gold medals are valued more because Olympic years are when more of the world's best show up at their best. In WC years, many college athletes skip the trials in the US,...

    Mega-mismatches in high school need to addressed at the root cause. It doesn't make sense for a tiny high school with 150 students total and no football field of their own to be playing against a...

    She said nothing bad about them ... yet. Before the doping suspension and disbanding of the NOP, she may have been too scared to come forward. Now that credibility and public opinion is not on the...

    Her junior year was when she made the 1500m final at the World Championships, which obviously wasn't a disaster. That year (2013) she was already being coached by Salazar, but from afar while she...

    And even if true, her request may have included the condition that she won't be trained by Salazar or his assistants.

    I don't think so. It's written into state law, not something chosen by a high school district or competition organizers to cover their own asses.
