Why do so many (almost all) of the major US meets in the States this year not have any throwing events in them? There are none in the Pre meet! Many meets have only two or three MEN's events and none for women.
How very sad for the sport.
Hayward Field is a perfect spot for the throwing events as they would all take place in the middle of field and garner lots of crowd attention.
It does make it easier for us up north to attract good throwers to our meets but what a sad situation.
