    If it's a visible tattoo how would they deal with it? How would they deal with headbands or things placed in a person's hair? I would think there are plenty of placements that Run Gum could utilize.

      The officials are instructed to make the athletes either remove them or cover them up.

          Brooks and Oiselle are (not surprisingly) the first apparel companies to publicly back Nick's lawsuit.

            Rowe wants to see more diversity on the track, and noted that most major apparel companies do not care if a non-apparel sponsored athlete was sporting Run Gum on their uniform, just so long as they were abiding by the same uniform rules that all apparel companies must follow. “Patching,” however, the act of putting a second logo on an existing company’s jersey, does reduce the value of the sponsor’s initial investment.
            I'd like to point out that the IAAF now allows athletes to wear a second sponsor on their jerseys at Diamond League and other IAAF non-Championship meets. Athletes can always wear multiple logos at all domestic meets except the Olympic Trials. The only thing keeping most athletes from wearing multiple logos in most meets is either their contract with their show sponsor, or their inability to sell sponsorships.

              As Nick Symmonds and his lawyers outlined in their lawsuit yesterday (Run Gum v. USATF and USOC), the restrictions on logo usage at the Olympic Trials are outdated and illogical. Why are shoe and clothing companies allowed to be visible on athlete uniforms, but not other types of sponsors?

                  Looks like the lawsuit has lost its appeals. USATF and the USOC can restrict logos at the Olympic Trials if they want.

                      Btw....

                      I read the RW article on that page about how horrible it is Eugene got the Trials again....

                      "But let’s spread the love. When USATF originally gave the 2020 trials to Mt. SAC, it was refreshing. It’s an accessible area for visitors, and a place where casual fans or people with a fleeting curiosity about track and field could (with the right outreach and marketing) drop in for a single session. Eugene, on the other hand…well, as I mentioned, you have to try hard to be in Eugene."


                      Some younger folks, "I’ve been writing about track and field and professional running consistently since 2012. " appear to have the notion that the Trials are like The Oprah Show and it can go anywhere and get an audience...."Hey, honey the Olympics Trials are in town!"

                      "After three Olympic Trials, six NCAA championships, and serving as the only U.S. venue on the prestigious Diamond League circuit (the Prefontaine Classic) every year, if Hayward Field really was the place to amplify the sport in this country, it would be heard loud and clear by now."

                      Since she has been writing only a few years she probably didn't know that there was another Diamond League meet in the U.S...that cultural and media center of the universe....New York City....which died because no one went...and the media ignored it....

                      I suppose I shouldn't criticize...there is a lot of dubious behavior by USTAF....but going on what a backward spot Eugene is is missing the point....instead of asking how track can be more popular my sense it's amazing it has any popularity at all except for parents watching their kids....Eugene is a unique spot and should appreciate it while it still exists.
