There is no doubt in my mind that indoor national championships as run by USATF are dead. They haven't been very popular even going back to the late 60's, but at least they would draw close to 11,000 fans at MSG in NY. Looking at the meet today on ESPN2, it was a sad sight. Why bother?
The death watch will continue with the Millrose Games next.
Too bad, as high school and college track and field in the US continues to prosper in terms of participation and activity as seen by so many new facilities across the country.
