INDIANAPOLIS -- Overwhelming fan votes earned Ryan Crouser (Fayetteville, Arkansas) USATF Athlete of the Week after a historic shot put series, and Mike Powell the 23rd USATF Throwback Athlete of the Week award for setting a world record in the men’s long jump on August 30, 1991. In the absence of regular competition during the Covid-19 pandemic, we are taking a weekly look back at some of the great efforts by American track and field athletes through the years.

The provisional entry lists for the AG Van Damme Memorial Wanda Diamond League meeting in Brussel on 7 September are now available.

When Ryan Crouser steps into the shot put ring at Drake Stadium, you can expect a big performance.

The World Athletics Council has today confirmed the competition format for a cross country event to be included in the Olympic Games.
