U20's are just not that visible OR interesting for most Americans, period. Its not my fault for bringing this up. Just look at the 800-3K line ups for the U.S. as an example. Plus, this is in Colombia? Not exactly, a hot spot venue, I don't think?
As far as Kessler, I can speak to that , I guess..the plan was to get him Q'ed for U.S. Nats, then try and make it as far as he could in that meet. If it then went as it did, sort of re-tool, with a solid block of training and then run a small schedule over in Europe. That was always the plan. I don't know, I consider myself and Track nut ....fanatic, and I do not even look at or care about U20's, maybe I should, but I never really did.
