Nick Symmonds Will Not Back Down In USATF Battle

U.S. 800m champion Nick Symmonds speaks to the media after the FloTrack Throwdown on Saturday, August 8 on his legal dispute with the USATF. USATF is requiring all athletes on the IAAF World Championships team to wear official Team USA gear emblazoned with a Nike emblem. Symmonds is sponsored by Brooks and says the requirement breaks his contract. On Sunday night, he announced that USATF informed him he will be left off the team.
