October 10, 2019
The 2019 World Track and Field Champs are done and what a great meet it was.
We start with our winners and losers from Doha, Qatar. Then we turn to the Alberto Salazar ban and discus the Mark Parker email and other strange things we’ve heard. Then it’s onto the Bank of America Chicago Marathon where two of Salazar’s former finest runners, Mo Farah and Galen Rupp will square off, but have their hands full going for the crown.
We have praise for 2:22 marathoner Sara Hall, before turning to Eliud Kipchoge INEOS 1:59 attempt.
