The USATF annual meeting in Columbus, Ohio, will feature a battle of the titans — ex-TJ world-record-holder Banks and incumbent IAAF Council member Hightower, who says she's running for IAAF vice presidency.
No love lost between the two. Remember the 2014 Anaheim convention — when delegates voted overwhelmingly to retain Bob Hersh as IAAF rep and the USATF board voided the vote and installed Hightower?
In the aftermath, Banks called the board move "totally unforgivable."
