    Re: Linz

    How about Merlene Ottey at 43 years of age...

    11.28 (+0.3 m/s)
    22.98 (0.0 m/s)

    Not bad for an "elderly" lady!

          Wignall was out injured for WIC. He seems to have come on a ton though. Definitely in the best shape of his life.

            Im not impressed with 2:05 for Brigita Langerholc. I thought she would be the next great 800 meter runner. I saw her in person several times when she ran in college. I expected her to challenge Graf and Mutola. I saw her run 2:01 with no effort at all in Eugene. And she has run under 2 in several times. I dont know if she is injured but she is having the worst year of her career. Does anybody know if she is still training with the Farm Team?

              yikes, what happened to Stember -- 3:49?

              Too bad for Robison, too, so close -- 3:38. I'd sure like to see more than one American miler in the WC field.

                If you're referring to a 'Q' for the WC's Robison and one other American would have to run 3:34.9 to hit the 'A' standard and get more than one US runner into the meet.

                  I wouldn't blame the Farm Team for the poor performance of Brigita this year. This is her first year training with them. Sometimes it takes time for an athlete and coach to gel together. Unlike some of the other foreign runners who come to the USA colleges as mercinaries but don't improve, Brigita actually developed in the USA. I believe she came to USC as a 400 meter runner and developed into an NCAA Champion and 4th at the 2000 Olympics. I admit she is having a lousy year but she will bounce back to her old form. Even the best athletes have a bad year.

                    The overall quality of the meet seemed to be significantly down this year. I mean, the people who were there performed pretty well by their standards, but the thing was virtually devoid of any A-caliber athletes. Money problems, like so many other European meets these days?
