Dennis Mitchell has had his chance to produce results with consistently some of the best sprinters in the world. Being in a paid position he should be accountable. Therefore he should be fired.
Dennis Mitchell coaches an athlete on the relay team. Based on the rules, he shouldn't be allowed to coach the relay team - unless Gatlin is not interested in running for the USA as a relay team member.
Dennis Mitchell is a convicted drug cheat and should not be allowed by the national governing body of Track and Field to be part of its organization nor associated with national teams.
Dennis Mitchell coaches a known drug cheat in Justin Gatlin. Gatlin... The sprinter who gets faster with age??? Anyone athletically associated with Dennis Mitchell comes under the microscope of guilty by association. That goes for the other athletes that he coaches as well.
This Dennis Mitchell USTF circus has been going on for too long. Makes one wonder what Dennis Mitchell might have on someone in the USATF or who in the USATF is wanting to keep him employed and why?
USATF makes poor decisions on numerous occasion. For that they have been consistent on. They are getting paid by membership and fail to listen to membership. Membership is USATF's customers. Very poor customer relations.
USATF has tarnished their own brand by making armature decisions on professional/commercial matters.
What has happened to the governance of our sport? There are so many knowledgable and good people in the USA that understand our sport and what is needed to be an athlete centrist organization that represents the highest standard of moral sport conduct.
Who in their right mind, within the USATF would continue to have a guy like Dennis Mitchell associated with the USATF? I would like to know who on the USATF board voted this hack back in. At least that way, as a member, I would know who not to vote for.
Dennis Mitchell Doesn't pass the smell test.
