After Coleman set the record he had to drive 230 km from Clemson to Atlanta which was the nearest city where he could take a USADA drug test.

If he hadn't done this the record would not have counted.

Is it already ratified? Hopefully not, it would be a joke, but considering that this is an american athlete and its only some non-olympic indoor event, i wouldnt be too surprised honestly ...

1) If it takes hours after the competition for him to take the test, the result is already pretty meaningless.

2) Was a NADA/WADA official with him all the time, otherwise there is no way that this can be ratified.

It takes months for the IAAF to ratify any world record.

So, aparently, this BIG MESS is a new athletics event. This is footage from a European Games Test held in Portugal last week, where some spanish teams were invited to take part and test the new event.

 

 

Apparently its called "Athlon", and it's so stupid I can't really believe this is going to happend. 

 

It's a relay-style race where each runner does some weitght-draggin while runing, then some throwing, then obtacules and finally they carry a big ball (?)

I am sorry but I can't understand a thing.

 

European Athletics is going to make official this discipline next year.

It seems in English it's called the trackathlon and it consists of running (with weight, by the looks of the video), shot put, hurdles and standing long jump.
