At the center of everyone's world was COVID-19, the pandemic that forced track and field to take a backseat for a handful of uncertain months.
But a large majority of MileSplit's most read stories dealt with the ongoing ramifications of those facts, with an audience that was engaged and curious into what exactly was coming next.
