Since this event which begins this Friday and ends October 6th is the biggest Track and Field event outside of the Olympics ( which are next year) it deserves it's own thread. I believe the Women's marathon kicks things off Friday. One encouraging note for TV programming. I don't get the Olympic Network but NBSCSN will be covering the events most evenings on tape. In fact I think their coverage is almost every night with a few exceptions since the NHL is getting underway next week. I doubt I will hear spoilers and am looking forward to tuning in. There are a lot of Track and Field experts posting here at CF that is for sure. So I also look forward to the commentary here. Good luck white athletes.
