    Last weekend at a Florida high school track meet, a high school runner in a 1600 meter race was sucker-punched from behind and knocked to the ground by another athlete in the middle of the race.

    The incident occurred at the Tohopekaliga Tiger Invitational in Kissimmee, The New York Post reported. "Witnesses claim the athlete in a black uniform was standing on the track as the runner in white and red was circling around and leading the pack," TMZ stated, adding, "We're told law enforcement and the Florida High School Athletic Association were notified of the incident."

    "Athletes from 27 schools competed in the invitational," Bleacher Report noted. The results from the invitational are listed here.


    In other recent news from the world of track and field, Linnea Saltz, who won the 800 meter track race in the Big Sky Conference Outdoor Championship in 2019 and competed against a biologically male track runner in college, joined protestors from the "Save Women's Sports" organization as they slammed men participating in women's sports outside the NCAA Division I Championship meet in Atlanta, Georgia.

    Recalling her senior year of college, when she had to compete against a biologically male athlete who formerly ran on the University of Montana men's track team, she said, "I just thought to myself, 'Well, I'm so excited to go and defend my title again, but am I not going to have that opportunity anymore? Because now a man who has competed and run ten seconds faster than me in the eight hundred, I'm now going to have to defend my title against somebody that already possesses this physiological biological advantage over me?'"

    "It was just really disappointing, and it was hard for me to understand why the NCAA would allow something like that to happen," she said.

    Saltz added, "That's why I come out to things like this is because I don't want women to feel the way that I did. I don't want women to feel the way that my teammates did. It's a disservice honestly to all women in sports."

    Saltz said she told the female swimmers at the NCAA event, "I know that I may not be an athlete now, but I did come out and advocate for this issue then, and people are just as hateful to me now as they were back then. It's never going to be different. And so I may be receiving a lot of hate...I've had athletes that I've competed against a multitude of times, say really hateful, hurtful things towards me because of my opinions."
