  • Did anything GOOD happen at World's????

    We've got drug busts, a man laying on the track in protest, and a guy wins the shot with a PR days after finishing a 2 year drug suspension.

    Did anything happen that was actually good for the sport? Or are we just slaves to a media that craves/promotes negative stories and scandals?

    From where I sit there was alot of good that came from the WC's.

    El G was shown to be a man of guts not just fast times.

    It was proven that it is possible to run sub 13 mins for the last 5k of a 10k.

    That you have to have 53 sec closing speed to win a major championship 5k.

    That Qatar can buy a Track Star.

    That both Oly Marathons should be very interesting and competitive.

    That nice guys can win sprint gold medals.

    The list goes on and on ......

    The glass is definately half full from where I sit.

      Trust me. Lots of good things happened at the Worlds. So many, in fact, that I--like almost everyone I know who was actually there--am still on an incredible high, having seen a week of unbelievably exciting track & field in a stadium that was buzzing every night. I don't know if the US media conveyed an adequate sense of that--I'm sure they gave a disproportionate amount of attention to the Drummond and doping matters. But for most of those who were in Paris, it was a week plus of good things happening. It was just a fantastic meet.
