USATF Board Of Directors Releases Detailed Statement Explaining Decision To Nominate Stephanie Hightower For IAAF Council Over Bob Hersh

Many have poken out after the USATF board of directors rejected the 85% membership vote which chose Hersh for IAAF Council and instead chose Hightower. The board states, “We fully understood that our choice of Stephanie Hightower would not be popular among the delegates who voted for Mr. Hersh. We fully understood that our selection was in direct conflict with the recommendation, and that some people would be (and are) very upset by the fact that we didn’t simply accept the recommendation. But we also fully understood that our function was to select the best – and not necessarily the most popular – candidate based on everything we know.”
