Seb Coe Shares His Vision

LRC “In a Way, the Horse Bolted the Stable Many, Many Years Ago”: Seb Coe Speaks to About Shoes, World Records, & 2021 Diamond League Changes Coe acknowledges technology is having an effect on the sport, but believes world records still mean something in 2020: “It is important that when a world record gets broken, that it is broken as a result of outstanding jaw-dropping athletic talents. And I’m still of the belief that in large part that is why we’re seeing those records.”
