Hi, my name is Justin Berg. I currently attend Temple University in Philadelphia, Pa. Early December Temple decided to cut men's track and field as well as 5 other sports- men's and women's rowing, baseball and softball, and men's gymnastics. Temple News wrote an article that goes more in depth about my situation. With this I am trying to create awareness about the current state of Olympic sports at the university level. Recently, many universities are choosing to cut their men's track and field team; however historically, men's swimming and most notably men's gymnastics have been targeted. In some research I have found the excuses for cutting men's track/Olympic sport programs revolve around budgeting issues, facilities, and Title IX.
please share the article! That would be greatly appreciated.
