World Track Champs Preview, Mo Farah Trafficked, Schumacher to Oregon

1 month ago

Preview of the 2022 World Track and Field Championships from Eugene Oregon

The World Champs start Friday in Eugene Oregon and we break them all down starting at 33:04. Before that we react live to Nijel Amos testing positive plus discuss Jerry Schumacher taking the Oregon job and Mo Farah being trafficked to the UK as a servant as a child.

The $200,022 Coros LetsRun.com Worlds Prediction Contest makes Worlds a lot more interesting. Casual track fans can play as they pick the top 3 in each running event from our guide and you can win some great Coros GPS Watches and gift certificates. Plus we have a special division for all the XC coaches out there. More details here
