Post-Event Procedures

Following all events, athletes must exit the field at the northeast corner, just past the photographer's stand at the end of the main straightaway. There, athletes will file through the Doping Corral, Mixed Zone, Formal Interview Area (if requested) and have access to the Athlete's Lounge.

The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) will notify athletes selected for doping in the Doping Corral. Running-event athletes can retrieve their clothes in the Mixed Zone. Athletes of interest to the news media will be asked to meet the press in the Formal Interview Tent.

The Athlete's Lounge is a place to relax, watch the meet for a few minutes and pick-up a cold bottle of water or PowerAde. This is also the location for the filing of Protests/Appeals, for picking up medals for places 2-6 and for interfacing with the National Team Staff for the national teams being selected at the Championships. Winners will be presented with their medals in an on-field ceremony, which will be staged out of the Athlete's Lounge.

The athlete/athlete support seating area is located in the southwest end of the back straightaway. Credentialed athletes and athlete support personnel will have access to this area. Entry to the athlete/athlete support seating is through the gate marked "Athlete Seating" at the southwest corner of the track just north of the velodrome along the access road toward the main gate.
