Shameful my ass. This is fucking embarrassing. I think all 4 of those guys need to be in handcuffs when the plane lands back here in the US.With more disappointment with the men 4x100 meter relay team just now not making the final of that event, just down right shameful!
I must respectfully disagree with you here. The performance of our track teams has been a total disappointment. A lot more was expected of this Olympic team especially after what we saw at the US Olympic trials.The performance of the the US teams are not surprising.
Again, I must respectfully disagree. Even if the US does not medal in the men's 4x4, track and field in this country is not dead. Far from it. We are just sucking this year.Now if, the US men does not medal in the 4 x 400, then I’m ready to call it like new member @BookerJones and say that US Track and Field is dead.
I am no fan of uh by no stretch of the imagination, but what embarrassment are you referring to? As far as I can see uh have a typical college team. They have a few people that are ok, and some that are just so-so. You know, a typical college team. The guys on these Olympics relay teams are professionals. And I think that was Carl's point.He needs to worry about the embarrassment he's coaching over there at uh
This is a good conversation. I remember being in discussions as far back as the early 90s about this very moment. Some like myself have always believed that non-American track athletes would continue to take advantage of the resources made available in this country (schools, coaches, competition, training facilities, etc). In addition, many of us have felt that internationally, sports like Track, Soccer, and etc are taken way more seriously than it is in this country. Case in point, look at how NBC is broadcasting the events. The way I have been keeping up is through this link--> https://trackandfieldnews.com/major-results-links/ When results are posted, I look for the actual race on youtube, long before NBC replays it. I also remember around this same time a well known sprinter stated that it would be very hard for the US to stay on top of sprinting in the near future. I don't remember who it was (it could have been Carl himself) but when I get the time, I will see if I can find the article for you.I must respectfully disagree with you here. The performance of our track teams has been a total disappointment. A lot more was expected of this Olympic team especially after what we saw at the US Olympic trials.
