    Given his 400r time, I suspect that he just needs competition in the 200; of course he might be fatigued from multiple events.

    Looking at the current USA U20 list, Boling

    leads the 100 10.13 to two guys at 10.21, but while Boling's wind was +1.3, one of the 10,21s was -0.4, so the two times are virtually identical.

    is second in the 200, but his 20.58 was with a -0.6 while the other guy's 20.57 with with +0.7, so MB is faster.

    is first in the LJ, 8.01 (+1.8) to 7.88 (+1.6), so he looks solid there except that he is pretty inconsistent in his results.

    I think that he has not had too many 200s, so a top mark there is from a thinner set of potential tries. Plus, the 200 has some tricky elements like transitioning from the curve and getting the effort distribution right.

    3 events is asking too much. Id recommend the LJ and 200. Skip the 100m. If you cant trust a faceless keyboard junkie named user4, who can you trust ?

    The 100/200 double is eminently doable. His strongest season event was the 100, so stick with it.
    The LJ Final is just before the 100 Final, so forget the LJ.

    He's a high school kid. They're used to dashing between events.

    So 3 events is too much for him, therefore he should do 10. Perfectly logical.

    Not at this level of competition - USA U20 Championships.
