    Is that a Games only for people with Vietnamese fathers?

    Article by CNBC writer on Felix signing with Athleta. (bold mine)


    As she stepped up to compete in a 400-meter run at the USA Track and Field Outdoor Championships in Des Moines, Iowa, she was decked out in Athleta’s Lightning crop top and running shorts made from a new SuperSonic fabric. She finished sixth, enough to qualify for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

    This has been noted on the Current Events MB, but it's worth noting here. It's the report of a street pole vault in Omaha a few days ago and it includes this:

    Kendricks won with a clearance of 5.90 meters and Chris Nilsen finished in second place with 5.90 meters on countback.
    The height that they cleared was actually 5.80, not 5.90.

    It is if they say it is! They can even trademark it, I bet.

    Yep, the North American Pole Vaulting Association has been around for a bit.

    Getting back to clueless writing, how's this:

    >>NAIROBI, July 11 (Xinhua) -- Kenya's 3000m steeplechase specialist Beatrice Chepkoech will return to Monaco on Friday, on a track she broke the world record two years ago, eyeing another win.<<

    It happens that she broke the steeple WR in Monaco last year, not two years ago.
