Smith & Pilgrim to Compete in Washington State

Tyler Smith
IslandStats.com
Tyler Smith and Nick Pilgrim will compete this weekend in Monroe, Washington State in US Triathlon Association’s Elite Series Triathlons.

The USAT Junior and Youth Elite Series are the premier triathlon race series for athletes 13 to 19 year olds in the United States. Consisting of four national-caliber competitions each spring and summer, the series prepares athletes for draft-legal competition and qualification to US teams competing at international championships. Each event has two competition categories – a Youth Elite Cup and a Junior Elite Cup – in which athletes are grouped by age and gender. Courses are designed to mimic Olympic style racing, with multiple laps and high speed transitions, making races exciting to watch.

Both Smith and Pilgrim are no strangers to this race series having already competed in various series events over the years. Smith will race junior whilst Pilgrim will be in the youth category. Both of them have shown in previous races that they can compete at this level and both have strong chances of finishing in the top ten or better.

Both Pilgrim and Smith compete on Saturday 18th June, with Pilgrim’s race at 12.30pm Bermuda Time and Smith’s race at 3pm Bermuda Time.

IAAF to keep Suspension of Russian Athletics

IslandStats.com
Russia's suspension from the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) will remain in place after a failure to meet criteria required by the body's Task Force.

A rule change has been passed potentially allowing athletes "not tainted by the system" to compete as independent athletes, but it has been emphasized that only those based outside Russia in recent years would be eligible.

Only a "handful" would be expected to participate.

Passing doping tests is no guarantee of being clean, Task Force chair Rune Andersen said, due to the deep-rooted problems within the Russian system which have still not been addressed.

In a damning report today, delivered to the IAAF ruling Council, it was found that "several important verification criteria have not yet been fully satisfied".

"The deep-seated culture of tolerance (or worse) for doping that got the All-Russia Athletic Federation [ARAF, but referred to as RusAF in the report] suspended in the first place appears not to have changed materially to date.

"The head coach of the Russian athletics team and many of the athletes on the team appear unwilling to acknowledge the nature and extent of the doping problem in Russian athletes; and certain athletes and coaches appear willing to ignore the doping rules.

"...Efforts to test athletes in Russia have continued to encounter serious obstacles and difficulties."

The report, which also took advice from the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), predicted that the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) remains 18 to 24 months away from being deemed compliant.

In the meantime, no Russian athletes or officials will be able to participate in the sport, with the country's Council member Mikhail Butov also required to stand-down.

This all comes after the ARAF was suspended by the IAAF in November following the World Anti-Doping Agency's (WADA) report of systemic and state-sponsored doping within the athletics team.

Forty-four specific criteria were then drawn up by the Task Force.

All but two members of the 27-strong Council were present for today's meeting, with 24 participating in the discussions on Russia due to Butov's absence to avoid a conflict of interest.

No vote was made due to a unanimous decision that the suspension should remain in place.

Concerns were raised by serveral members, insidethegames understands, including Ukrainian vice-president Sergey Bubka, but all ultimately voted in favour.

“I think our decision sends a very very powerful message," said IAAF President Sebastian Coe.

"There was an unanimous decision that Russian athletes could not return 'without undermining the confidence of competitors and public."
