    ... and the descendants of Nero fiddle, whilst doing nothing to resolve that problem. 10% of Max's salary spent annually in the event would change fortunes nationwide.

              You are correct. At least McLaughlin and Mu should be available for 4x400 mix.

              Who is in charge? Remove him/her/them if US teams fail to get gold in 4x400m mix and at least silver in 4x400mW.

                It was noted earlier by a few people already, but they don't need to be explicitly listed in the pool for them to be able to run the relay in Tokyo because they are already on the team in their individual events. Anyone competing in Tokyo can also run on any of the relay teams.

                  I realize this hasn't been answered previously in any thread but....to clarify...anyone who is listed on the US roster can run in the relays. This includes Mu and McLaughlin regardless of who is in the relay pools.

This came as news to me, and I'd be curious to know if anyone(perhaps polevaultpower) would know why this rule was quietly amended this year.
                    It was in place for Doha -- https://www.flipsnack.com/USATF/usat...full-view.html
