    Another data point: Megan Simmonds (100m hurdler for Jamaica) got married and changed her name to Megan Tapper in this year's Diamond League and on the IAAF site, but the Pan Am results now show her as Simmonds. She probably didn't get an updated passport with her new name.

    Nice finish by Anna Cockrell in the 400mH. She was fourth off of H10 and got up for 2nd.

    Edit: Cockrell 1st as Watson was DQ-ed. Hooking a hurdle? Not sure what the reason was.

    Watching the close-up replay at the time I wondered if she might be DQ'd. In the home straight (penultimate hurdle?) her trail leg went slightly over the barrier in the next lane and since Hechavarria was alongside her in that lane at that point it might have been considered hindrance.

    Another 400mH PR from 19yo Alison Santos (BRA - and a guy) with 48.45.

    Improves from 48.49 at Pan Am U20 champs a couple of weeks ago.

    Stays #3 all-time junior (behind Danny Harris 48.02 and Jehue Gordon 48.26). He has until year end to run them down too.

    Some of these event fields have been very good in terms of the quality of PRs and or SBs coming into the meet.

    South American nations have really stepped up in recent years. Brazil has always had good athletes, but now we're seeing a lot more Colombians, Venezuelans, Chileans etc. performing at international level.

    Now it shows Watson winning again. Maybe reinstated?

    Robinson's wonderful year continues with a 45.07 bronze medal performance in the final! He now has 3 of the top 7 prep 400 performances of all time.

    The future is once again looking bright for the Americans in the 400m. Quite a stable of athletes to watch!
