Things You May Have Missed This Week

Romain Mesnil ran naked through the streets of Paris to protest the loss of his sponsor. He ran with pole in hand…his vaulting pole.

Micah Kogo set a World Record for the road 10k. Video is available.

Let's Run's Robert Johnson analyzed this year's World Cross Country Championships and how to improve them for the future. His best ideas: hold them only every second year and move them up a few weeks. And he shows how Kenya's brutal training-camp system is fundamentally flawed.

Haile Gebrselassie identified his hero: Nelson Mandela.

Michael Jordan is supporting the Chicago 2016 bid. But what about Bill Swerski's hero, Mike Ditka?

A Spanish steeplechaser ran down a thief. When will the crooks learn? It seems like this kind of story pops up all the time.

The proposed USA v. Jamaica sprint-only dual meets will start up next year.
