    Euro tracks with a soccer field inside it are NOT two semi-circles. A full-sized pitch doesn't fit in this configuration. The Euro ones are called 'broken-back', because they are not 2 semi-circles.

    USA Beijing Medals

    In the first blush of the recent USATF meet, I see way over 30 Ami medals. I'm sure this heady rush will pass, but we're looking good right now. Here's 40 with a decent shot at medaling.

    It's really hard to get on your biggest pole without the adrenaline of tough competition. Plus, practice jumps wear you down, so you CAN'T get on it. I (in this instance, "I" means my athletes) used...

    I am uber-impressed with Montaño's restraint! In the past she always went out in 55 and came home in 64. Perhaps she learned something about herself after having a baby!

    Active rest is a term from the periodization argot; it means recovering form a 'hard week' by continuing the training, but at a markedly less intensity. In Prandini's case, it means do less...

    I wouldn't count out Manzano, and off a 'tactical' pace, Andrews can close like a bullet. I can see two making the final and certainly Centro is positioning himself for a medal.
