At Mt. SAC Saturday, while speaking with Scott Reid of The Orange County Register, he issued some wild opinions. I taped the chat. See it here:
Among other things, King Carl said:
— Mixed-gender relays are a "clown show."
— Cutting 5K and 10K races in Diamond League "is a mistake."
— "We have a great system that I teach (at Houston). If I was teaching a bad system, we'd be the U.S. team the last 12 years," apparently referring to relay miscues.
— And: "There are too many athletes and we're not a professional sport." (Not sure what he meant by "too many.")
Any reactions? I might add them to my story.
