    I am confident that L&L will table anything of David's that they don't feel comfortable passing. I do not see them rejecting anything, and if they did, my Association is willing to take that to the...

    It would be very sad for the neutral athletes if they could not compete in Tokyo.

    This was specific to the track federation, I don't think it will have much of an impact on other sports' eligibility, though it is certainly not helpful.

    I anticipate all of the ANA athletes will...

    I believe she is living with a family member. I do not think she is going to need to pay the bills with professional pole vaulting in order to survive any time soon.

    If going pro doesn't work out, she'll do what any other 20-something who hates school does... get a job or go to some sort of trade school, like the massage school she mentioned in the article.
