    First Worlds for USA  
    BEIJING (CHN): Surprise decision during the afternoon session of the second day of IAAF Council meeting in Beijing. World governing body awarded Eugene the 2021 IAAF World Championships. The proposal to award the IAAF’s premier competition to Eugene, bypassing the usual bidding process, was taken in response to what was seen as a unique strategic opportunity to host the IAAF World Championships for the first time in the USA. The decision followed a presentation to the IAAF in recent months by Eugene, USA. The candidature of the city from the State of Oregon and USATF, who mounted a failed bid last November for the 2019 edition of the championships, uniquely combined the commitment of the funding by the governor of Oregon with the financial support of the United States Olympic Committee and the guarantee of NBC to produce and broadcast in cooperation with Universal Sports the championships live across America. Council’s decision was taken in order to grant the sport’s access to one of the most historically successful countries in Athletics as well as the most powerful economy in the world.  “In granting the championships to Eugene the IAAF Council have made a clear choice on a strategic decision that enables us to take advantage of a unique opportunity that may never arise again, whereby public authorities, the private sector, the national Olympic Committee, NBC and a particularly enthusiastic public are joining forces,” commented President Lamine Diack. Says IAAF in a release. The IAAF Council voted 23 to 1 with 1 abstention for Eugene according to Christopher Clarey of the NY Times. It already happened with 2007 Worlds given to Osaka without a formal bid process. For 2014 Eugene winners and medalists in 7 years time the right time to return to Eugene at age of 26 years.

The Shoe Addicts and RunBlogRun interviewed a thoughtful Ben True the day before the race, at the BAA 5k and One Mile presser. Ben True is a 13:02 5000m guy who can run 12:55. He is in a quandary: should he run the 5000m or 10,000m at Payton Jordan. I think he is in 27:15-20 shape for 10,000m. Ben True is[…]

    Zersanay Tadese, dreams of a successful Boston, by Cathal Dennehy, Zersenay Tadese, photo by PhotoRun.netSo, I asked Cathal Dennehy to write about some of the stories that might not be considered an obvious feature. Zersenay Tadese is one of those fine athletes at Boston who possesses much talent, but who, has not been fortunate with Lady Luck. Will it happen on Monday, April 20, 2015?  For Zersenay Tadese, perhaps more than any other athlete who will line up for Monday's Boston Marathon, the 26.2-mile distance continues to prove the ultimate test[…]
