Athletes in track and field invest years of tremendous effort and dedication to become the best in their discipline, but recognition is frequently elusive. This problem was brought to light by Sha’Carri Richardson’s stirring speech at the 2022 USATF Outdoor Championships.

She pleaded for the media to treat players with more respect during interviews, speaking up not only for herself but for other athletes who dedicate their lives to their sport in a moment that shook the sports world.

Recently, Tara Davis-Woodhall expressed her annoyance at reporters mispronouncing her name. She called out the rudeness and begged them to perform their job and pronounce the players’ names correctly. TAR___RUH!!!!! It seems like we’re back to square one when yet another track and field athlete experiences outright contempt in spite of these requests for decency.

Track and field national champion criticizes broadcasters after a major victory.

Cheickna Traore, of Côte d’Ivoire, who created history in the NCAA Track and Field Championships, expressed his dissatisfaction with the remarks made during his outstanding performance in a moving post on X.

Traore shared a post by Coach Alex of Arkansas State University, a reputable authority on long jump and triple jump coaching. In it, the coach criticized the announcer’s disparaging comments about the athlete’s form, taking aim at the problem head-on with an interesting and persuasive message.

“These broadcasters have been working on some kind of covert project to harm me all year long. Whatever they say about me is free to be spoken, just be sure to include “national champion.” Traore was quoted as saying by essentiallysports.com
