South African 1500 specialist Peter van der Westhuizen among the many chasing the standard at 2012 Donovan Bailey Track Classic
Ahh the life of a 1500 meter man chasing a standard. Peter West (yea thats what we are sticking with) started the outdoor season hot with wins at Kansas and Drake but is just off the the 3:35 standard that he hit just a few years ago. The game is a little different depending on what country your from but the struggles are almost universal for an athlete chasing a time. Peter is a grad from the University of Nebraska.

NTLCommissioner Mat Gentes enlightens the public of the NTL and the future to come
The National Track League, or what many have come used to noting it by as the NTL, just finished up it's second year of existence and it seems to have a bright future on the line. The NTL can be compared to the European Circuit, when everyone (a great amount of the North Americans) heads over to Europe to race in the post-trials/post NCAA meets that the various cities in Europe hold. The NTL is hoping that these athletes that travel overseas as well as some of the others from around the world, will compete in the NTL and provide a vast field of competition for all who enter. Listen in as the Commissioner of the NTL, Mat Gentes gives us an insight of what has already been accomplished thus far and what is in store for years to come.
