Long-range plans for IUPUI unveiled this month call for the demolition of the Michael A. Carroll Track & Field Stadium and
Indianapolis Tennis Center, raising questions about the future of sporting events held at those venues that have generated
tens of millions of dollars in economic activity for the city.
Doug Logan, new CEO of locally based USA Track & Field, knows the organization’s challenges reach beyond the disappointments
of dropped batons at last month’s Beijing Olympics. He wants to review the sport from top to bottom, and plans to announce
in the next few weeks formation of a task force that will look at everything from team training camps and the time of the
Olympic trials, to forming a series of events in the United States culminating in a series championship.
