(SOUNDBITE) (English) DEANNA PRICE, AMERICAN DOHA HAMMER THROW GOLD MEDALIST, SAYING: "It is everything that you want it to be, being able to compete.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MICHAEL JOHNSON, AMERICAN FORMER OLYMPIC AND WORLD CHAMPION SPRINTER, SAYING: "Just having the 2021 championships in America is not going to be enough to have this sport or help this sport reach it's full potential in this country.

You have to understand, you know, at all different levels how you penetrate this very, very crowded sports landscape in America and how track and field can penetrate that is a little bit more complex." 9.

Whenever there's something to be gained, power or money, there's going to be people that will be willing to cheat, and we're showing that we're willing to catch them." STORY: Oregon21, the organizing committee driving the 2021 World Track & Field Championships, launched the run-up to the event a week after the Doha games closed, with a star-studded line-up at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon.
