I have no idea what sort of appearance fee a guy like Dix gets but he cost himself $40,000 not running in Zurich.
He had the 200m title wrapped up but had to run the race to win the DL title and $40,000 as a requirement is you have to run the season ending event.
Instead he didn't and lost out on a guaranteed $40,000.
Anyone know what sort of injury he has. I'm assuming he is injured.
What would people think if Dix showed up and "ran" a 40 second 200? I guess he still has some goodwill with the meet directors for not doing that.
