Running Is Coming to Netflix, A 4-Hour Marathoner at the Olympics, and Anti-Sex Beds in Paris 😳

Our editors provide insights and their takes on the most important, intriguing and downright weird stories from the last week in running

Last Updated:

Our news editor Jessy Carveth joins Michael Doyle to discuss how a recreational runner duped a major news outlet (and donors on GoFundMe) into thinking she will be representing the U.S. at this summer’s Olympic Games (00:00:46).

Then, they debate whether or not Canadian standout Michael Roth should have been DQed for an “unsportsmanlike” gesture when he won a NCAA conference championship race (00:10:59).

They also provide details for “Sprint,” the Netflix’s upcoming docuseries on track athletes, and talk about if it will propel athletics as “Drive To Survive” did Formula One (00:21:11).

And finally, they get into the Paris Games’ “anti-sex bed” fiasco (00:38:15).

Hosts: Jessy Carveth, Michael Doyle
