Thank you. My point earlier is there are laws on the books (IRS regs) that govern this. It is up to the IRS to assess whether compensation is excessive to the point it is inurement and thus illegal. The IRS has gone after heads of similar sized, and much larger, 501c3 organizations in the past.
Those who want to bash elite athletes can bash away but the fact remains that USATF has a mandate, via federal law and its USOC status, to support track & field - especially elite athletes competing in the Olympics and other protected competitions. I am not sure if your clickbait is just for funu, to stir the pot or if yo are trying to divert attention from the issue, but serious people understand the excessive of the staff come striaght out of the pockets of the athletes, coaches, members and others who care about the sport.
