      Glad to see she's not dropping the hurdles in the wake of her recent LJ breakthrough. I was a huge TD fan during her years at Agoura. I get the sense that television is more interested in making stars out of runners than long jumpers.
      It is a lot easier to consistently run fast than to replicate 23-foot jumps.

          And Sydney McLaughlin ran a PR in the 100H--13.03, wind legal!

            This is the NCAA thread, so I'll chime in with what I consider one of the more portentous performances of the weekend, Cole Hocker's 1:46.60 800 at Hayward.

            Watching his finishing strength and speed, one has to consider him for not only a USA 1500 berth, but a finalist at Tokyo. And if I may clamber onto the Hype-Wagon, a shot at a medal!

              The way she talked about that jump, I get the feeling that might be about her upper limit right now, which might suggest she wouldn't be consistent at anything above 6.85-6.90 - which would probably still be good enough to make the team and be a medal contender.
              And if she were to pop another one, to make it onto the podium. Which NBC would love. (Tara has "star quality" that TV drools over.)

                I do not disparage TD's jump. I hope it becomes her standard. It is just that (I don't remember the exact distances) Beamon improved his PB by some 22 inches the one time he jumped 29-2x. Never came close again.

                            My first argument is that Trey Knight should be in the mix for the Men's Hammer Throw!
                            Not even in the top 10???

                              Performance wise, he's barely in the top 10.
