LRC Week That Was: World Indoor CliffsNotes, Should Molly Huddle's Have Been DQd?, Duane Solomon, Chanelle Price & Raevyn Rogers Make News Outdoors, and The 'Robots' in the Long Jump Pit

Sure we look back at World Indoors, but there was news made outdoors and on the roads as well, plus the 'robots' in the long jump.


"I really can’t say I’m on the verge of tears or disappointed. After the year I had last year, making this final, all my dreams have come true.”

The Guardian:

"I think some of them are hiding away from competitions. And there is no substitute for competition, there really isn’t."

The Telegraph:

It was their worst showing in an Olympic year ever. "For too long Britain has leant almost exclusively upon the golden triumvirate of Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis-Hill and Greg Rutherford for its hopes of glory at world level."

Daily Relay:

Kevin Sully gives a really good rundown of the highs and lows from Portland, both from an athlete perspective and for the presentation of the sport.


Lananna was happy with the reactions to new innovations like the NBA-style intros for finalists, live orchestra medal ceremonies in Courthouse Square and the during-competition music.

The Denver Post:

Keflezighi: "It is an amazing story. It's like a script from a movie. But it's real."


3 Wire Sports:

Abrahamson says Ashton and Brianne Thiesen-Eaton are exactly the feel-good story track and field needs right now.

Brianne: "Seeing him calms me down. When you are in a stressful situation, competing at something like this, sometimes you want to give up or [you think], ‘I just can’t handle this pressure anymore.’ But seeing him on the sideline running toward me to help me with something helps calm me down a little bit and being able to celebrate this with him is really awesome and the cherry on the top.”
