Oregon22 a resounding success for US Track and Field. Could Indy host?

INDIANAPOLIS – If the World Championships can come to a small town like Track Town, what about our town?

Track and field’s showpiece closed Sunday night in Eugene, Ore., with two world records, a full Hayward Field and a vibe that attendees and TV viewers won’t soon forget. This event had never been held in the United States before, and perhaps it will not return soon.

It should.

Members of Team USA celebrate after winning the team trophy on the final day of the World Athletics Championships Sunday, July 24, 2022, at Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore.

The United States has the best team and biggest sports market. It is a market World Athletics, the sport’s governing body, is trying to use to elevate the sport here and everywhere. Of course, to do so here means colliding with behemoths like pro football, basketball and baseball.
