Yep it's official, Beijing Worst Olympics ever for USA Track and Field, and Berlin 2009, Worst World Championships ever for USA Track and Field. It has totally fallen apart in only 2 years. the NCAA schools like LSU, USC, Florida, UCLA, Texas, Arkansas, TCU, are too blame! THE NCAA simply allows a free pass for Caribbean sprinters to train in the USA and use our facilities and coaching. Thus allowing the Caribbean nations to catch up and at this point surpass the USA in sprinting. Unbelievable really! Perhaps the USOC should enforce the NCAA to limit the amount of foreign scholarships to non-American born athletes, the same thing is going on in swimming as well! :tape::tape::tape:

USTF Presiden....."Youre FIRED" LOL!

the USOC has no control over how different colleges and universities decide to apportion scholarships.

I know the USOC has no influence on the NCAA, However the NCAA is certainly somewhat responsible for the success of teh Caribbean nations at Track! For example some 20-something year old guy from the Barbados jsut beat 2 American veterans in teh 110m HIgh Hurdles???? WTF? Who guess what trains at an American University, as well as the silver medalist from Panama who beat 2 American runners to silver. It would be an interesting discussion if the USCO puts some pressure on the NCAA! Seriously!

I don't think Usain Bolt attended an American college.

I think the rest of the world has just got better.

Jamaica is dominating athletics at the moment in all the events that the USA normally does well in so theres most of the success gone.
