RE: Promising Ukranian mid-d runner complains about quality of team uniform - gets banned for 6 months
I hate that the professional level of track and field relies heavily on apparel sponsors, only to have NGBs strictly dictate apparel and advertising in international competition.

But this kid would not crack the top 100 in Division I for the 1500m. He is a developmental athlete. What reaction did he expect from ASICS and his governing body?

I would feel more sorry for him if he were an actual professional with a contract with another company; not a lower level national athlete getting free gear and competing on the state's dime.

This is not a 3:37 runner upset about his governing body hampering his livelihood; it's a spoiled kid unhappy with his free SWAG.
