Quote Of The Day

– Statement from the Track and Field Athletes Association calling on USATF to release the “conclusive video evidence” that was used to DQ Gabriele Grunewald from the women’s 3,000 at US Indoor Champs. Even though this statement from the TFAA came before Grunewald’s reinstatement, we still think that USATF needs to answer for how this happened in the first place. *Sign Petition Here

A Hollow Victory? Everything Still Remains Unanswered

LRC Editorial: Far From Resolved, All Of The Questions Leading To The Uproar About USATF’s Initial DQ Of Gabriele Grunewald Remain The results has been changed but none of the issues that led to the nationwide uproar have been addressed – just glossed over. #USATFchange #integrityofsport

A Pro Speaks Out: LRC Mark Wieczorek: “Either USATF indeed does have conclusive video evidence or they, in collusion with Alberto and Nike, lied and cheated to manipulate the system.” The 800 Olympic Trials finalist says there is “so much to be answered for” and hopes this doesn’t end up being remembered simply “as a happy, good feeling memory where an athlete did a good thing.”

LRCGabriele Grunewald Reinstated As USATF Champ As Jordan Hasay Withdraws DQ

USATF CEO Max Siegel spoke to the parties involved and Jordan Hasay did the right thing and withdrew her protest, meaning Gabe Grunewald could not be DQed and is your USA 3,000m champion. The fight is not over, however, as fans and athletes need to stay on top of this issue to address its root causes. Siegel said that while he is "looking forward and will address our processes to try to minimize the potential for controversy or misunderstanding in the future" that in this case, "they followed the process laid out in our competition rules." Scary thought if true, with no transparency on the part of USATF.
