    I could find all sorts of information on the website for the meet, just not results. Are they posted somewhere?

  5. As of Aug 2019, which events are people most excited about the end of the year?

    For me, Id say the following:
    M100
    M400
    M400h
    Msp
    MPV

    I dont expect a WR in any of them, but would not be surprised with one in the later four.

    I dont pay that much attention to the...

    I just offer that up as a historical warning. TS was on a steady arc through his freshman year of college also. TS didn’t peak out until his sophomore year. Also, Mondo has not PRd this year.

    On the whole, I agree with you.

    However, I’d like to remind people of a young man who most everyone believed was the next big thing, Tommy Skipper. He got stuck at 5.80 and never progressed. He...

    Greenland’s government explained that the country was not for sale. Perhaps the president could focus on what we have currently.

    We could repurpose the other one.

    The issue is hanging on to a wet pole. I don’t think that one has been solved.

    After watching to recording of the 6.05 jump, I think the WR is going to be at risk this year or next also. Id not be surprised to see him go 6.25 to 6.30 before it is all over.

    It is probably safe to say that Duplantis enjoys no real speed advantage over Bubka.

    In 10 years we will be able to speak intelligently to Mondo’s accomplishments. We will never know what Bubka...

    I agree. T&F has an incredibly fine filter for talent out of any graduation class at the NCAA level, at most one or two athletes make it at the pro level per event.

    Is it true about speed? I know that Bubka’s best 100m had been rumored to be between 10.2 and 10.5. With 10.3 apparently being a commonly cited number.

    Mondo is fast, but not that fast.

    It seems that a lot more of those kids are playing soccer. They may not run track but they are slowly backing away from football.

    I’m still amazed at him vaulting 19’10” on a 16’ pole. Factoring in the box(8”), that would be a push off of at least 4’6”.

    Has that been done before?
