Very high award indeed, great to hear KU Track is getting some love.

Maybe next year both Diamond Dixon and Shabaz Muhammed as KU athletes - how cool would that be?

Can't forget the hot pink running shorts back in the day. KU was a national power for years with coach Timmons at the helm. Love to see us get back to that point.

Once was told that it was more valuable than a USA Jersey on the European circuit.

Oh darn. I thought they were honoring the track around the football field.

But hey, you can't lose with a name like Diamond Dixon!
