    As I understand it, drug testing is not a prerequisite for approval of a high school record by T&FN. So does that mean that she gets to keep the high school record?

    Unless of course you don’t want to be found. However third time around, I’d also be damn sure they knew where I was.

    I suspect it’s more for publicity purposes then fitness. It’s good to advertise X number of defending world champs at the meet and have them available to the media etc.

    Not hurt, but apparently had been sick, so maybe less then 100%

    While following the meet, and watching Kendricks vault at literally every height, I was thinking, that perhaps the reason he hasn't put up a better mark, is that by the time he gets to the high...

    If he’s not, then he’s really in a spot as a man with no nation at all. Good luck finding visa help from the home office :)

    I believe they are referring to the meet in Mexico City where AF ran 22.11. From what I understand, NCAA does have drug testing, but it is not WADA testing so prevents ratification of records.
