The 2024 European Athletics Outdoor Championships is just less than two months away from the Paris Olympics. Held in the Stadio Olimpico, the home of the Rome 1960 Olympics the first day opened in a dream way for host country, Italy.

Overwhelming is the word Dakotah used to describe her life since making the Paris Olympic Marathon team.She cannot believe how much busier she is as she is constantly in demand. Her life has changed dramatically as people now recognize her and everyone wants a piece of her dream.Even on her runs or going to the grocery store, people wish her good luck or want to talk. It has been exhausting but she is still so excited over the possibilities in her future.

The recent NIKE Pre Classic was held on May 25, 2024 in the stadium that Phil and Penny (the Knights) built, in Eugene, Oregon.

EUGENE — Living up to its ranking as the top Diamond League meet in the world, the Prefontaine Classic at Hayward Field Saturday produced a women's world record in the 10,000, eight world-leading performances, and a thrilling men's mile that exceeded expectations. Seven Team USATF athletes came away victorious in their events on a cool and overcast day that couldn't dampen the ardor of vociferous fans in a sold-out stadium, and all-time lists across the spectrum took a beating.
