Quote Of The Day
“We were good to go and expected to get the invite but it didn’t happen. … For four of those guys to be added in the men’s 1,500m is pretty unusual to be honest. Normally what they call the ‘universality athletes’ tend to be in the 100m because they’re reasonably close in terms of the distance and time. The further you go they’re more likely to get dropped off. So in a field of 45 to have four athletes who are probably going to be five to 10 seconds slower than the actual qualified athletes is pretty massive and I don’t think that’s a good look but we’ll just have to have those discussions. … I’m pretty disappointed in how they’ve run the process. … We had to break the news [to Nick Willis] and in fact the IAAF wouldn’t had even informed us had we not contacted them. We’ve had a number of emails suggesting they need to change their process because we’re not happy.”
