In this segment, Bryant Gumbel covers an issue many track & field coaches discuss. Most track & field programs urge students to take college level courses to prepare for college. If track & field students aren't able to achieve adequate grades in college level courses they should seek tutoring to bring them up to speed.

Parents I strongly urge you to watch episode 204 in its entirety if you have access to HBO. Make a point to become involved in your child's high school and college courses should they become a member of an athletic team. - Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel
