Beware Munich snafu: Port Alegre corrects its printed schedule
Remember the Munich 100-meter heats snafu in ’72? That could happen at Porto Alegre if you don’t keep your eye on the ball. I’m sure Team USA manager Phil Greenwald and others will notify entrants about schedule changes, but you also might keep an eye on the WMA homepage. The Porto Alegre site appears useless (and often won’t load pages because of too much traffic). Anyway, see this list of dozens of schedule changes at worlds, which starts in three days. And the 240 American entrants in Brazil are listed here by event (thanks to a USATF list). Among them are W65 Phil Raschker and M60 Bill Collins, legends who take a licking and keep on ticking.
