“Arkansas Vice-Chancellor and Director of Athletics, Hunter Yurachek, and the University of Arkansas support staff, has just been incredible in supporting us. They recognize the desperate need we have for these events to take place and thevalue that we can bring to the institution.
“Without their support, we would be dead in the water, so I must give sincere thanks to the University of Arkansas.”
Chief Operations Director Bryan Fetzer added: “What an incredible opportunity the American Track League presents. The concept is a unique opportunity for the Olympic hopefuls to shine on one of the biggest sports stages in all of sports with ESPN.
“The vision for ATL by Doyle Management Group, with the help of the University of Arkansas staff and administration, is what the sport desperately needs. It is something different, special and tremendously exciting. What an incredible way to begin an Olympic year!”
