7. I suspect ticket sales have been okay, but it is hard for non-locals to visit when Hampton Inn/Springfield charges $704 a night. Hilton should be ashamed of itself. Air BnBs have also gotten pricey.
8. My dream is that NON, New Balance Outdoor, and adidas Outdoor figure out that 3 national events on one weekend is not good for the sport.
9. Noah Lyles is in 100m and 200m at Eugene.
10. Gabby Thomas is in 200m at 400m at Eugene.
