  • USOC cuts USATF out of 3 million...

    ...because of the Jerome Young case.

    "The USOC has handed down a three-part series of sanctions, including the
    suspension of about $3 million that flows annually from the USOC to USATF."

    Whoa! Let me whip on over to letsrun to get all the facts, since T&FN is incapable of finding anything any other way.

      Actually they don't seem to have it on their main board(or message board)which is odd since it has been floating around for 8 hours or so.

          Yep...it's true. It's a long article, here's a few excerts:

          "In a first step that could ultimately lead to the loss of certification for the US governing body for T&F, the US Olympic Committee has imposed financial and other sanctions because of USATF refusal to turn over files relating to a US sprinter who tested positive....."

          "The USOC has handed down a 3-part series of sanctions, including the suspension of about $3m that flows annually from the USOC to USATF...."

          Also says it's aimed at the administrators and not athletes funding ...(2003 $945,000)

          Other sanctions are "symbolic"...no credentials in Athens etc.

            Bill Martin, USOC Acting President in letter to Masback and Bill Roe, "...based on the handling of this matter by both of you....(USOC)questions your appreciation and understanding of the damage your inaction continues to cause the USATF, the USOC and the entire US Olympic movement."
