    Re: 2013 Outdoor Results
    Ustalova ran another sub 51 at the Pechonkina Cup yesterday, with Kapachinskaya opening her outdoor season fast:

    1st. Ustalova 50.94
    2nd. Kapachinskaya 51.05
    3rd. Tamkova* 51.52
    ....8th. Nazarova 53.96

    *Tamkova is a new name. She's just turned 23 and up until last year focussed on the 100/200. She ran a full season of 400's in 2012 with a best of 53.93 to finish 6th at the Russian U23 champs. She ran 53.41 indoors this year at the Russian winter meet (she came last) then came 11th at the Russian national indoors a week later, so this improvement to 51.52 is huge. It remains to be seen whether she will continue to improve or is a one-off. Possibly one to to watch these next few years.

    It's a terrific opener and the strength work she put in during the winter already seems to be paying off. She ran 9:00.06 indoors for 3000m this winter which is a very solid performance for a junior predominantly specialising in the middle-distances!
    A brilliant first run over 800m. She actually opened her season 10 days earlier in Italy, running 4.14,43 over 1.500m.
    Judd followed up with a 2.00,71 victory at Loughborough four days later, on 19-May. Unfortunately, she placed only 13th over 1.500m at the Anhalt Meeting four days ago, running 4.17,90. She's won neither of her 1.500m races this season.

    Among all the other results from the past few days -- Rome DL, NCAA, the latest from Mary Cain -- worth noting that Matthew Centrowitz ran a significant 800m PB at the Portland Distance Festival (8 June). His 1:45.86 is a near-2 second improvement on his previous of 1:47.72 from 2012.

    Also in this race, Tyler Mulder became the USA list leader with his 1:44.79 (.04 off his lifetime best); Joe Abbott 1:45.80 improves his PB from previous 1:46.59.

    Matthew Centrowitz, faster on paper than Bernard Lagat, who, despite repeated attempts, could not muster a sub-1.46 at any point in his 1.500-focused career.

    Perhaps Centrowitz can translate this new PB into an even fiercer kick.

    Gwen Berry had a HT of 73.81 (242-1??) at the Chicagoland meet!
    That makes her # 3 American All Time, and just the 3rd to surpass the 240 barrier!

    20.72/1.6 .. > 20.8 basic; that is a mere 1.5 seconds off his PR (and he was really falling apart the last 40m). Biggest stunner of the day, possibly. I want to see a little more detail and I also expect his next race is a big improvement.
