    Seems to me it would behoove a program that has an athlete with a reasonable chance of breaking an American or World record to pay out of pocket to have a USADA tester on site. Better yet the USTFCCCA could pay for it and cover everyone. It's a shame kids are losing out on official world record status because the NCAA is too damn cheap(or territorial) to do it.

    That was the first legal electric sub 11 when it was done.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. I think the chances are slim and none.

    IAAF wants the first passing of urine for world records. I was told USADA testers were present at NCAA Indoors, because it was very predictable that Sydney was going to break a WJR, but it never got ratified so...

    I am guessing that the NCAA wants their policies followed, and that would give them the athletes' first pee.

    No idea if anything was sorted out between then and now... and not even sure any of the universities would have been so sure their athlete would break a WR at this meet that they would have paid to have USADA on site.

    FWIW, I think WJRs should just require a test within 24 hours. It is too unpredictable when young athletes will break a WR and the cost of having doping control present is prohibitive for most meets.

    I feel like Mondo being at this meet should have been enough reason to have the necessary procedures in place.

    During Mondo's last two years of high school, I was told that LSU would have testers on standby whenever he thought he might break a record and not actually at the meet. However, since neither the LHSAA nor the Texas Relays would have had any interest in testing him, that might explain why USADA/WADA were always able to get the first sample in those situations. But that still doesn't explain Trayvon Bromell's 2014 WJR. Has the testing protocol changed since 2014?

    So give it to them. Or better yet drink enough after the race that both can be covered at the same time.
