The type of coverage track and field gets on tv is about one millionth on the list of deciding factors.
    Again, you're missing point! T&F needs EVERY fan it can lay its hands on to attract TV coverage, and media coverage. Injuries can- and do - always "spoil", to a greater or lesser degree, a meetings. What we don't want, or need, is star athletes simply not bothering to turn up because they feel have something more important to do, That is a slap in face for fans who were really looking forward to a particular event. What we need is the will and desire to put on the best show for the fans because if we don't the backers will disappear and start covering a more accommodating sport.

      what evidence is there that this is the case here?

        That can only happen if the champ is willing to defend her title...and it seems as if Athing is not to keen to do that.

          You have no idea why Mu isn't competing at Pre. You have no clue when she pulled out of the meet. And you don't know how long Pre Meet organizers have known about it. So, you need to keep your wild speculations to yourself because you just don't have the facts!

            She will...when it matters at the WC.

              another off-the-wall statement with no facts to back it up

                  Exactly! Pulls out without any explanation or apology. What planet does she live on! And, what a slap in the face for T&F fans. Clearly, somewhere along the line, Mu missed out on lesson on " good manners".

                    If it's because of a private matter, she doesn't have to answer to you or anyone else.

                        Indeed. Stirring the pot and boiling it at the same time. 😖

                          Wow, I thought internet trolls were a quaint relic of the past!

                          • Interesting that this thread on Mu has gotten more comments than all the other runners combined have gotten in the Pre meet thread.

                            Who could else could possibly get this many comments? McLaughlin showing up last minute? Richardson pulling out? Semenya entering the steeplechase?
