The Final Lap: Oh My, This is Beyond Embarrassing!

  • Track stars are dropping faster than rap stars. In a New York Times article Anthony Pettigrew fingered in the doping game. Dennis Mitchell to testify about his involved. Read New York Times

  • It’s getting nasty. Guess what coach got dropped for their past involvement in drug infractions. Read Foxsports

  • Powell is out two months with a pectoral injury. For real. No kidding. Read Sports Illustrated

  • Don’t sleep on Derrick Atkins. The Bahamian dropped 10.07 last week. Read IAAF

  • Trying to keep up the good life. Tim Montgomery pinched on heroin distribution charges. Maybe a 9 to 5 isn’t so bad. Read ESPN

  • By Jay Hicks, a.k.a. Track Evangelist.


    1. Jay,

      Beyond Embarssing..Just Plain Stupid.Montgomery told the newspaper he knew nothing of the accusations and that his arrest was a "total surprise." WHY??

      "You get caught up in the achievements," he said. "You get blinded and make really bad mistakes." No he really has poor character how 'bout that.His achievements didn't do it his lack of chatracter did. Just What will he tell his kids one day..."I was the world record holder NOT"...AHHHH Enough.

      Track and Field is really getting beat up with stupidity and shelfishness lately,is it just lately?

      I love Track and Field, especially Youth Track. Pretty sure no drugs there yet..Just amazing performances ,dedication and fun.
      Yousite is great,i keep up on everthing track with you.Keep up the great work.

    2. @ Lorraine: You are right those are lame comments that make litte sense. He should have blamed rap music or violence on tv. Wait, better yet, he could get legal representation to give a professional comment on the matters.
