Re: Derek Miles upgraded to 2008 Olympic Bronze

Cost is ultimately a limiting factor. Also, it has been rare for American pole vaulters to test positive, so USADA doesn't test generally them out of competition much. The IAAF also orders tests for top athletes, Brad Walker and Jenn Suhr have been tested extensively over the years. USADA does test ...

Re: Derek Miles upgraded to 2008 Olympic Bronze

Every athletes _should_ be tested many times before the Olympics. But it's hard to make that a strict requirement. Even in the US, our out of competition testing isn't as good as you might think. The top athletes get tested regularly, but if someone has a big season and is improving rapidly, they ar...

Re: Olympics!! How to watch/follow in the USA

Isinbayeva has officially announced her retirement. Rick Suhr stated a week or two ago that Jenn was going to go for another Olympic cycle.

Haven't heard anything for sure about the rest. Boyd has had the season of her life, seems like she'd probably go at least another year.

Re: Who will make the US Olympic Team? Your predictions here!

Walker didn't train all fall or winter, only started jumping a month ago and it showed. If he had a few more shots he probably could have cleared a few bars and made the final, but he looked to be a long shot to make the team, at best. He says he is 99% sure he is done, but doesn't want to 100% clos...
