2022 USATF Distance Classic: Australia’s Abbey Caldwell (4:04.18) Punches Her Ticket to Worlds, But No One Else Does

The meet was a bit underwhelming as Caldwell was the only athlete to hit the World Championship standard on the night.

I'm Pro-Vaccine, But If We Follow The Science We Wouldn't Be Allowing Olympic Track Stars Like Cole Hocker To Be Vaccinated

Earlier this week, it was revealed that American track star Cole Hocker hasn't been vaccinated for Covid-19. As a result, he's been called "selfish", an"idiot", a  "dumbass". The reality is just the opposite. The stats prove that it's actually quite selfish and anti-scientific for people to be demanding that young and fit people like Cole Hocker be vaccinated right now. The selfless act would be if called on all young healthy adults to not take the vaccine right now and instead redirect that supply so the world's most vulnerable could be vaccinated.  There are HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of senior citizens across the globe who have yet to be vaccinated.
