    Sad news but inevitable given the logistics and extra costs involved in getting athletes to and from Vancouver Island. The state of T&F in Canada is in rapid decline right before our eyes.

    I hope the Harry Jerome meet can do reasonably well out in Coquitlam this year.

    Is it? What other examples of this rapid decline exist?

    From my experience in Ontario and now BC, I've seen steady numbers or small growth in open track meets, an increased depth in university distance running, and more success at the elite international level. I haven't been around that long and am just a distance runner; I understand that's just one part of Track and Field. Are other event groups rapidly declining, because Canadian distance running doesn't seem to be.
