  • Age 12 wTJ WR

    Kinda lost in the shuffle, from this year's GWI on June 11th.

    (At the bottom of the Gabe article in today's Oakland Trib: http://www.insidebayarea.com/ci_3988806?source=rss)

    "LEAPS AND BOUNDS: Ciarra Brewer, the 12-year-old from Union City, keeps getting better. The owner of three world age-group records in the long jump, she set her first global mark in the triple jump earlier this month when she leaped 38 feet, 61/4 inches against the best high school athletes in the country at the Golden West Invitational.

    Brewer, who will compete in several national youth events this summer, also improved her personal best in the long jump to 18-11. She's chasing the world age-group mark of 19-7."


    And she lives in Union City, so it will be on to HS powerhouse James Logan for her when she is of age.

          And not really jumping all that much farther.
          There's no excuse for the USA's women TJers. Good grief, African countries with gross national products of $400 have better triple jumpers.

              I'm with marlow -- I'd rather observe her progress than hold her to account for (a) having been a great 12 year old and (b) the sorry state of USA TJing.

              Here is her annual progression (assuming the performance noted in the 2006 link was her best for that year):

              2006: 38' 6.25"
              2008: 41' 8.25"
              2009: 43' 4.25"
              2010: 41' 5.25"
              2011: 43' 2.5"
              2012: 44' 9.5"

                And with a wind-assist, an American went 47ft (minus a tiny fraction) for about half an hour, when cameras were used to decide she was 1 mm over the line.

                  I agree, the sorry state of US women triple jumpers is not her fault.

                    In 2011 Brewer had the longest jump by an American junior...she jumped 13.16 and was 29th on the junior list

                    ...and her 13.58 from 2012 would put her in the top-10 in 2011 but it's VERY early still and there were 15 athletes who listed ahead of Brewer in 2011 who jumped as far or farther than she did last year.

                    http://www.iaaf.org/statistics/toplists ... etail.html

                    Marlow, knows that there is probably no bigger critic of wTJ on this board than me but Brewer is progressing alright. In fact, at the last 7 World Junior Champs, 13.58 would only get her a medal one time (bronze in 1998) but it would make her one of the leaders of qualifying for the finals every year.

                      We are ALL big critics of Ami wTJ; we just all differ on the reasons for our pitifulness!

                          Ciarra finished 6th in the finals at 43-10.75, to which I say

                          Well done!!

                            I agree. Good job by Brewer. However, (face it, you KNEW there was going to be a "however") as for American wTJ ... the Spanish 16-year old jumped 14.17 to win!!! And the Lithuanian 18 y/o also jumped 14.17. I use their ages because we can't argue that they've been jumping for 10 years (like you have in the past); these girls are relative neophytes in training age and have just been coached better than the HUNDREDS (500? 600?) of American collegiate wTJ'ers and ALL of the American post-collegiate wTJ'rs! Almost every junior in the final could have wiped the floor with almost every single older American NCAA athlete. Why? you've argued previously about body type and athletic ability; did you see the Mudan Chen of CHN? The medallists were undoubtedly studs but NOTHING like some of the talents that American NCAA coaches have to work with. These foreign coaches are doing more with as least as much and sometimes less.

                            Again, good job by Brewer, but she needs to turn the light on to show a lot more the way.
