Let The Games Begin!

The Trials were just over, yet here we are with the Games literally days to count down! These Games already feel different. Maybe it's the fact that venues are STILL under construction. Maybe it's the Zika virus that has so many afraid to go. Perhaps even the status of injured athletes like Christian Taylor, Allyson Felix, and Usain Bolt - what level will they be ready for in a few short weeks? Whatever it is, somehow CHANGE seems to be in the air! Expect the unexpected Read More...

We're halfway through the US Trials and those gusts of wind that have been howling through the stadium seem to be the winds of change as veterans have been dropping like flies in Des Moines. Jeremy Wariner out in the first round. Ditto Angelo Taylor. Walter Dix a semifinal casualty. Doc Patton a DNS Read More...

NCAA Championships – Great Competition

Jun 10th, 2013
8:17 am PST

This is one of the meets that I really look forward to each year, because it's everything that the sport should be. A meet that contests EVERY event. It has relays. The best show up to compete. There's team scoring. And most of all, the competition is fierce! Yes, the NCAA Championships should be the poster child for track and field Read More...

We're a weekend away from the Penn Relays, which is typically the meet that sets things off for the outdoor season. After this weekend's performances however,I think things were set of just fine and we're on our way to one hot track season.

It's finally here - the Olympic Trials. The biggest meet outside of the Games themselves. And with the first half of the Diamond League and the NCAA Championships concluding this past weekend, I think I've seen enough to stick my neck out there and make my predictions on the crap shoot that is the Trials Read More...

Friday we were treated to Doha, and one of the best Diamond League events the league has put together. The weekend was left to the "youngsters" as collegiate conference meets dominated the action as the road to the NCAA championships began. The college season has been relatively quiet so far, with coaches having both the NCAA championships AND the Olympic Trials in mind as they've prepared their athletes this year Read More...

News out this weekend is that Marshevet Myers its pregnant and will be out for the season. While I wish her all the best , I can't think of a worse time than an Olympic season.  World Championships come  often enough that if you miss one there's another next year - or at worst in two years Read More...

WOW! Talk about a series of outstanding meets/marks. This weekend has been HOT! New York, Fayetteville, Dusseldorf, Albuquerque, Donetsk – great results have been pouring in from all over the globe.

December is already a third gone – not much time left in this year. As a matter of fact the indoor season is already getting started! My how time flies when you’re having fun! So before the month gets away, and Baby New Year shows up, I want to give out some kudos to athletes that I feel really got the job done in 2011 Read More...
