[Audio] Sebastian Coe Interview, DOHA DL, with questions from Larry Eder

At the Doha DL, the media were able to interview both Sergey Bubka and Seb Coe. This is the interview with Seb Coe. 

Both Coe and Bubka were very open and neither would discuss or belittle the other's campaign. I found that classy on both parts. 

My belief? Sergey Bubka and Seb Coe both have skill sets that are complimentary. Both skill sets are quite different and the administrations of Sergey Bubka and Seb Coe would be quite different. 

I asked Sergey Bubka what his administration would look like. With Seb Coe, I asked questions about the dearth of TV in US. Seb noted that he was pretty sure that Americans had not seen a live 100 meters since 1996. I think he is correct. We also spoke on XC, and several other issues of note. 

Listen to Seb Coe's entire press conference. The future of our sport depends on the next round of leadership for the IAAF. Much is on the line in 2015 and beyond.
