December 4, 2022

During a heatwave, American heptathlete Taliyah Brooks collapsed amid the 2021 U.S. Olympic trials. The athlete has taken legal action against USA Track and Field, the governing body for the sport. Heading into the trials, Brooks was a top contender in the heptathlon, a two-day, seven-event sport that involves three track and four field events: 100-metre hurdles, high jump, shot put, 200-metre dash, long jump, javelin and 800-metre run.
