“It sounds like a cop-out not to have an answer, but I don’t think there is one,” he said. “I hope we have track meets, but safely. You can’t lose the last part of the sentence. ... We’re going to have to consider not having all the events at one time. I feel we should compartmentalize track meets so they won’t be so long. If we’re interested in the jumps, you can watch the jumps. If you’re interested in the distances, you can watch the distances. It can be a little bit like having sessions. It would limit spectators and officials, the number of athletes and coaches.”
Includes quotes from Duplantis and Renaud Lavillenie talking about the unique competition as well as Timothy Cheruiyot, Filip Ingebrigsten and more.
Johnson encouraged his athletes to speak out on social media, talked about how he feels getting pulled over by a cop as a black man, and said if you are "being silent, you're for this injustice."
All social distancing requirements have been removed in NZ.
The record for the rarely run event was set by GB's Chris Rawlinson in 2002.
Miller-Uibo will race in Florida, Felix in California and Kambundji in Zurich.

Johnson said she should be banned through 2022 and also advocated for increasing the ban for three missed tests to 4-years.
“I’m only going to focus on the facts. My understanding is three missed drugs tests in a year results in an automatic two-year suspension. From this article, looks like she’s not disputing the three missed tests in a year, so we’ll see you in 2022. Done.”
“Missing three tests in a year must result in a minimum four-year ban and considered the same as a positive test. Positive tests must result in minimum four-year ban regardless of substance. I believe the sport can legally increase the punishment for missed tests. Increase the punishment to four years and you’ll see fewer missed tests. Two gives the presumption of innocence already. Maybe it’s not labeled as equal to positive but punishment should be.”
Includes three cases where athletes may have broken conditions of their current bans.
