    finals - 10.59 (0.0)

    Both times faster than his previous PB of 10.61 (+0.1) from back in 2012
    Not so random. His fiancé is Austrian - high-hurdler Beatte Schrott.

    • Alman's AR is an absolutely beautiful sight. Her arm speed is so fast it's like they disappear for a moment. She just picked up a big fan.

          True! That makes more sense. He also noted that he will be competing in the triple jump at the Austrian National Champs on August 15th.

              this is what I was talking about 3 months ago. Organizers/sponsors of Penn, Texas, Sun Angel, Mr. Sac, Pre all need to get on board if they really care about Track and Field

                Allman was tested

                  Did you see her throw in slo-mo? If not, see post 55 in the "Best Technique" thread. You will be even more impressed with her level of gracefulness and skill, including the pirouette for recovery.

                    • A quick peek at just the current (Aug 4) USA outdoor men's list shows that while many of the events are starting to fill in with 'decent' marks, these events have gone largely uncontested and the list leader is . . . indecent.

                      3000St 9:28.49

                      • Don't know if this has been mentioned elsewhere, work is too much lately for me to keep up, but per my son and Instagram, the first sub-4:00 ever on Colorado soil was run yesterday in Boulder. Oliver Hoare 3:56.8, Joe Klecker 3:58.4

                            Nah. People are staying inside more so there's more oxygen in the air outside.

                            • Wow, outstanding results Friday from Matt Centrowitz: 1:28.44, 2:19.60 & 3:08.28. For the 400, 600 & 800. At least he won two events . . .

                              Bowerman Track Club Intra-Squad Meet IV
                              Jesuit High School, Portland, OR, USA; Friday, July 31

                              NOTE: The Bowerman woman continued their summer of speed, clocking a pending 4 x 1500m world record of 16:27.02, an average time of 4:06.75 per woman. That bettered the Team Kenya mark of 16:33.58 set at the 2014 World Athletics Relays in the Bahamas. Shelby Houlihan anchored, closing in 64.8. The men also had a good night, setting a pending North American record of 14:34.97 for the same distance (average time of 3:38.74). Hand 1500m splits courtesy of ELLIOT HEATH of the Bowerman Track Club --Ed.

                              NOTE II: Reigning Olympic 1500m gold medalist Matthew Centrowitz ran in a series of three low-key races (400m, 600m, 800m), ostensibly to fulfill contract obligations to log enough races for the year. None of his marks were significant --Ed.
