    Speaking of what is or isn't legit, this surely isn't:

    No company is going to banned. Only specific shoes may be banned.

    And I don't want innovation in shoe technology for foot races. I want innovation in training methods, not competition equipment.

    Drop the "male" and "female" wording, or it will be increasingly difficult to fend off the attacks by people who think social definitions of male and female should be applicable.

    Paying NBC won't support track & field. It's because of them the Diamond League events got cut, and now they expect us to pay 33% more. Better to boycott NBC and let the IAAF know they shouldn't be...
