"The athletes are great and they're the best. We do need to highlight them and not have them hidden. We need the best of the best to stand alone by themselves so that they are highlighted but we have them embedded in a much broader volume of athletes who are good.

Chris Chavez, Kyle Merber and John Anderson speak with 12-time gold medalist Michael Johnson for a wide-ranging discussion assessing the state of track and field in America, globally and what can be done to improve the way things are run from the top down.
