    But guess what? Even if you plopped down the perfect stadium and support structures at Hayward Field, probably couldn't get the bid.

    Not enough housing and even if that miraculously happened, I see no way the IAAF would put the WC a 2-hour drive away from the nearest international airport.

    Eugene the perfect (or as close to perfection as I can imagine) Trials spot, but WC... nah.
    Agree with you, gh, on the point about the airport situation. However, can't agree on the housing situation. This was a big concern about the Olympic Trials but guess what? It wasn't really a problem. Eugene has a lot harder time hosting UO football games for housing (stadium seats almost 60,000) than track meets (capacity ~1/3rd of that). But they still get it done and there are several fans there that don't live in Eugene. TrackTown has so many fans that live in Eugene that a lot of them attend the track meets. So it's basically the same amount of housing required that would be needed except for the athletes for which there would be a higher need. Still, I don't think it was nearly the issue people said it would be for the Trials and the ability to host 60,000 for football games shows Eugene could likely host a track with the same numbers without needin to change too much.

      Yup, I noticed! But Indy reserves the right to zap ones it doesn't like.

      Of course, I do to. (But of 5,500 comments on my blog, I've deleted only four or five over the years.)

      My news: Masters T&F Chair Gary Snyder is starting a blog, too:

      And no, Marlow. Becca is an energetic and professional young woman whose maturity is unquestioned. She'll be a married lady soon.

        And USATF should certainly retain the right to delete whatever comments they see fit. I honestly was surprised to see they added them in the first place.

        Maybe Stephanie Hightower will start a blog? That would be something!

        And Marlow is well aware I am getting married, he renewed my T&FN subscription as a wedding present! 8-)
