Subject: RE: NYRR are crybabies
From the article linked above:
Wittenberg called that approach short-sighted and said the two interests should not be mutually exclusive.
"I think the Trials will be fine by the athletes this time," Wittenberg said. "Houston will do a good job. I think it will be fine but it won't be great. We were at a point after being at the bottom of the barrel where we made some quantum leaps. This is not going to be a quantum leap for the sport.
I think it's a leader's job, USATF's job and our job, to make sure the Trials work for the athletes, but to also look beyond. Athletes can only look at their four years or eight years or even that one day. Our job as leaders is looking longer term. It's got to be in the best interests of the athletes in the context of what's best in the long run for the sport and the athletes. I think there is a balance there that needs to be better struck.
"What's going to happen four years from now?"
That was a pretty crappy thing for Wittenberg to say about Houston. I hope Houston blows it out and has the best trials ever and put NY to shame.
Mary comes off as a real bitch in that article.
