    SAFP looks scary good with that 10.97 from where I'm sitting. Should be noted that Elaine Thompson ran in a second heat and ran 11.09 or something and neither looked to be taking it easy or anything.

    10.97 from a collegian would be very 'interesting', but for a seasoned pro like her to already be at 10.97, with 4 months to sharpen, is, as you say, scary good.

    Sorry, but a 10.97 at nearly June from someone of SAFP’s stature is really not a big deal.

    Nobody else is really running that fast in "nearly June" and she's still working her way back from giving birth. She looks great and it is a big deal.

    Also the World Champs are in late Sept/early Oct this year - the latest in the year they've ever been by a full month - so June is essentially like April/May.

    Our trials are less than a month away. Neither SAFP or ET were full out in those races. Straight training runs working on aspects of their race. Should be an interesting final at trials with Natalliah Whyte and Jonielle Smith expected to challenge them. Brianna Williams will be trying to upset the applecart. Stockholm should be a nice meet. Excited to see what norman will bring.

    Interestingly at the meeting, despite torrential rains all events bar high jump were held outside.

    He has a rather shallow J, which I always thought was an advantage.
    He points his takeoff foot about a third of the way into the far-side of the mat, and I always taught 2/3s of the way, but I like what I see!

    Wesley Vazquez (PUR) won the 800 in 1:44.68, near to his PB (1:44.64).

    Puerto Rico has 3 @ 1:44.xx this year: Vazquez, Ryan Sanchez (1:44.82), Andres Arroyo (1:44.96).
