The Department of Justice is investigating possible racketeering, money laundering and fraud charges related to the awarding of both the Eugene championships and the 2019 championships to Doha, Qatar. Lananna has long served as president of TrackTown USA, the nonprofit that hosts events in Eugene. He led Eugene's efforts to land the championships, which were awarded without a bid process. USATF chairman Steve Miller said nobody at the federation believes Lananna committed wrongdoing, but the move was made to avoid any appearance of conflict of interest. On March 8th the IAAF says there might be a scheduling issue in Eugene to hold the World Championships there, the first time in the US. Stay tuned... (03/12/2018) ‚ö°AMP
