Triathlon: Multi-Sport Mania or Multi-Sport Malaise?
In the summer of 1980, four years after I started running and less than a year after completing my first marathon, I saw a flyer for a race called a &quot;triathlon.&quot; I had read a little bit about this new sport combining swimming, cycling, and running, but really knew nothing more than it was a race consisting of all three of these sports.

A Conversation With 100 Km USA Team Members Jim Garcia and Kevin McGovern
Ultrarunners are a rare breed, very fast ultrarunners, even a rarer species. Two of the fastest ultramen in the country live right here in New England, Jim Garcia from Westford, MA and Kevin McGovern from West Boylston, MA. Both of these guys are capable of running 50 miles at 6:30 per mile pace, and 100 km at seven minute pace. That's equivalent to running a marathon in less than three hours and maintaining the pace for another 36 miles.

Q & A On The Boston Marathon Dropping the USATF Membership Requirement
Well, now we find out how much people really care about USATF. The decision by the Boston Athletic Association to drop the USATF membership as a requirement for entry into the Boston Marathon may be a victory for the free market, but it will undoubtedly be a blow to the fiscal health of USATF, especially the local New England Association.

World Track and Field Championships in Athens: Expect A Wild (Card) Affair
Welcome to track and field, 90s style. The sixth World Track and Field Championships will be held starting Friday in Athens, Greece. The most notable aspect of this world meet is the inclusion of star athletes through the back door via a wild card provision. This means that winners of past World Championships events may enter the world meet without qualifying at their national trials. Why wild cards? Why now?

Catching Up With Infobytes and Opinions From The World of Running
What a difference a year makes, at least for Michael Johnson. Considered unbeatable at this time 12 months ago during the 1996 Olympic Games, he has lost a lot of altitude in a short period of time. First was the embarrassing loss to Donovan Bailey in the &quot;World Fastest Human&quot; competition. Now his 57 race 400 meter win streak is gone. The adage that &quot;you are only as good as your last race&quot; is very applicable to Johnson. The 400 meter World Record, which was considered a mere formality last year, all of a sudden looks awfully tough to beat.
