A delegation from the International Association of Athletics Federations arrived in Oregon on Monday for the first of what will be many site visits in advance of the 2021 World Outdoor Track & Field Championship meet at Hayward Field. Led by IAAF CEO Olivier Gers, the group representing track field’s international governing body wanted to connect with local organizing committee TrackTown USA, as well as local governments from Portland and Eugene.
The Oregon track and field team opens its indoor season Saturday and even if the Ducks roster feels somewhat unfamiliar, you can trust the ultimate goal remains the same. The Oregon women have won eight of the past nine NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championship titles, including last season, and the men have won four titles in the last nine years, including three straight from 2014 to 2016.
Luke Puskedra’s promising return to a career running marathons has largely been a one-man operation. In mid-October, the former Oregon distance all-American joined the Nike-sponsored Oregon Track Club Elite professional training group in Eugene. He’s now being coached by Mark Rowland and getting his body fine-tuned by strength and conditioning coach Jim Radcliffe. On Sunday, he’ll take his new arrangement out for a test run when he competes in the Houston Half Marathon.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
