    Fine, but what is your audience? If you are trying to appeal to fans and potential fans (as you should be), a contorted view of the athlete in celebration is better than a deadpan mugshot. The...

    You might want to change the subject of this thread. I don't think of a four-time world champion as a silver medalist.

    I understand all of that. But as I suggested earlier, when the large action shots are available and on the profile page, that should be the only photo there. Why use a mugshot at all when you have...

    It looks to me as if they pulled those from the photos they take as part of the credentialing process at track meets. I agree--the on-track photos should suffice when they have them.

    This thread prompted me to think about other war remembrances, and I wrote something to post but then recalled that I had written something very similar on another thread. No poetry involved here,...

    I assume not, but we'll see. They could figure out a way to squeeze in a 200 or maybe a lap or two of the steeple.

    Just to be clear about this, according to the DL release, ten of the 14 DL meets will have 200s and ten will have Steeples. So any organizers that "don't wanna be without" those events can have them.

    I think they generally all did all of the events, but only half of them were men's and half were women's. I assume that will continue to be the case--each meet will have 12 DL events, six men and...

    If anyone made book on this, he'd have to be the favorite. But I wouldn't call it a sure thing. Stuff can happen, especially when you're playing against very strong folks.
