    Yesterday on the track there were a few good marks in distances races in the rain.
    Ajee Wilson 1:59.68 in the 800
    Charlene Lipsey 4:04.98 PB in the 1500m behind Seyaum
    Drew Hunter 3:56:72 in the Mile

    Today, on the straight track, some sprints will be starting soon with a lot of the notable Adidas sprinters. Noha Lyles in the 150. Torie Bowie and Kendra Harrison in the 100m. Gay and Blake in the 100m. Miller-Uibo in the 150 and many others.

    Announcers mentioned early in the "Sports Gold" broadcast on Sunday that the 200m straight track at Boston Common dropped from ~5' above the street to 2.5' above at the finish.

    Then Ato Bolden keeps talking about "records" for different races as they are run. The track can't be in specs for any records; except for tracks that drop 2.5'/200m

    Perhaps the street rises along the way.

    Ah, yes. A possibility.

    Miller-Uibo running a scorching 16.23 in the 150m into a headwind was the real eye-opener today. That 200m PR of hers has to fall this year, and if she can allocate her speed wisely, sub-49 is a possibility, too

    A big shock, though, was Le-Roy's 22.16 in the 200m. Where in heavens did that come from?

    The 400m ladies are not playing around!

    Not quite a steep enough drop to match the outer lanes in some indoor 200s, I don't think.

    Noah Lyles should give up the 100m, no? If this was a 100m race, he would've lost to Mitchell-Blake. It isn't clear that race is ever going to work out for him. It's incredible how much better he is over 200m.

    Shaunae is not from this world. I wouldn't put anything pass her.

    Can we start talking about a move to a 200m focus for SMU at majors rather than 400m?

    I believe the comment reflected how the structure had to change its height above the ground to keep the track level due the street slope.
