    Don't sell Maggie Ewen short. After speaking to her dad today I am looking for her to pick up where she left off at the Boston Indoor Games.

    PB for Maggie Ewen in only her third competition of the year. I was sitting with her dad who I coached many years ago and we both thought her PB punched her ticket for Doha. We didn't expect the...

    Today while at the meet I spoke to a USATF insider who will remain anonymous here. He told me that last year Leeper tried to enter but was refused entry because he didn't have the required paperwork...

    What will the IAAF do when the inevitable happens; someone breaks a WR with blades? Endless court battles I'm afraid. Blades are a separate event and they have their own rules and competitions. I...

  7. Lyels's False Start at Adadias Boston Boost Games

    Whoever thought that they were doing Track and Field in this county a favor by giving Noah Lyels a green card after his flagrant false start in the 150 at the Adadias Boston Boost Games better think...

    Owens Stadium is a much better facility than Drake, Sac State, or Stanford. I've been to them all. The stadium at Drake is ancient, at Sac State you can't see the outer four lanes on the home...

    You have to be kidding about Indy in '88. It was so hot that in the heats (yes they had them then) of the men's 10,000 athletes were keeling over and were being removed by medical personnel.
  11. gh, I'm surprised that you are not one of the...

    gh, I'm surprised that you are not one of the biggest supporters of metric measurements. It would take up a lot less space in T&FN. Now you have to report marks in both systems!
  12. While this may be true, the problem arises...

    While this may be true, the problem arises because with very few exceptions, measurements in the US Customary System (either 1" or 1/4") cannot be exactly expressed metrically to two decimal points. ...
  13. The 1600/3200 are just as absurd as measuring in...

    The 1600/3200 are just as absurd as measuring in feet and inches. They should be abolished in favor of the 1500 and 3000 or 5000 so preps can compare their time with what is expected at the next...

    One could also with about as much logic attribute t&f's loss of popularity to gh taking over at t&fn! They both happened at about the same time!

    So this is a valid reason not to measure in meters?
  16. Changing to metric measurement should not produce...

    Changing to metric measurement should not produce new records. Just convert the old records using The Big Gold Book (or whatever color it is now) and in a few years no one will relate to records in...
  17. This is great news, but where will everyone that...

    This is great news, but where will everyone that wants to attend sit? What is the capacity of Hayward Field. Certainly no more than 25,000. This will be by far the smallest venue ever for a World...

    Re: Call From Sunday Night Football

    At least at the NFL combine they use the Speedtrap timing system, which activates when the player's hand leaves a pressure pad, and stops when he crosses an eyebeam. And while it's not track FAT,...

    Call From Sunday Night Football

    Around noon today, I guess because of my occupation as a T&F consultant, I got a call from someone from NBC's Sunday Night Football. I'm sorry, but I didn't get the man's name. He wanted to know if...
  20. Re: How to Easily Determine A Track's Turn "Tightness"

    I have calculated the striping for many tracks (http://www.computomarx.com/Jobs.htm), so this is my $0.02:

    1. A track composed entirely of circular arcs and straight sections, with symmetrical...
  21. Re: Annual mag has arrived but still no rankings debate?

    By "featuring" athletes from all those areas, and by mandating a one-per-nation rule, the Continental Cup counted for virtually NOTHING in the rankings. It certainly counted for nothing in the 100,...
  22. Re: Annual mag has arrived but still no rankings debate?

    Two separate meets, European Championship and IAAF Continental Cup. The latter featured two athletes in each event from Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia/Oceania. It was nominally the biggest meet...
  23. Re: Is the men's shot-put WR to be threatened soon ?...

    Kevin Toth competed in one years ago. Draw your own conclusions.[/quote]

    I think Bruce Wilhelm won one of the first SM contests.
  24. Re: Annual mag has arrived but still no rankings debate?

    I have a comment: How could LeMaitre only be ranked 10th in the Men's 100? He won the Continental Cup and the European Championships, the two biggest meets available to him, in addition to his...
  25. Re: Is the men's shot-put WR to be threatened soon ?...

    When I think Cantwell and "ragged edge" I tend to think of 4th in an OT he should have won. Or 4 fouls at the Helsinki WC the next year.[/quote]

    His record since '08 is quite a bit different,...
