Break Line Episode 013 - Group chat with Olympian Nick Symmonds, Professional Runner/Author Brandon Hudgins and Sport Management Professor Mark S. Nagel Ed.D

February 9, 2018


                                                        Olympian Nick Symmonds - Rungum CEO 



It's no secret that elite athletes have a weak level of trust if any for their governing bodies acting in a fair and balanced manner, but this podcast focuses on the actual structure of professionalism or lack thereof in American Track and Field.  We discuss and dig deeper into the plight of many athletes who struggle under antiquated, amateurish rules that restrict their ability to fairly capitalize on a free market of potential sponsorship income. Forty years of athlete hardship and unchecked NGB control has prompted Nick Symmond's company Rungum to file an antitrust lawsuit against USA Track and Field and the US Olympic Committee asking for triple damages and attorney's fees. 


Special guests include 2 x Olympian and Rungum CEO Nick Symmonds
