Antonio Pettigrew, Dennis Mitchell Listed in Witness List as Drug Cheats
A lot of people will go down if the Trevor Graham case goes to trial next month. Remember when 2 years ago Letsrun.com first pointed out Mitchell was coaching the US team in the US vs UK meet. Then the British press picked
up on it, and then Mitchell's name disappeared from the USATF website. Then USATF a week later tried to say with a straight face that the Dennis Mitchell, was the Akron coach, not the drug cheat. Heads should have rolled for that one but it shows how some in USATF work. If anyone would like to give us an update
on USATF shenanigans feel free to email us. The old guard at USATF of course accepted Mitchell's five beers and lots of sex with his wife excuse, and the new guard felt it was ok to try and cover up the fact he was coaching a team. While we're at it, it's time for Sandra Farmer-Patrick to go.
