  • What Happened To Chaunte Howard?

    PR at Nationals, then disappeared after a few meets. From coach Nat Page:

    <<... fracture in her right foot, in a small sesamoid
    bone. .... last three meetings Howard was in she was in great pain, still
    jumped well but in the last meeting she could not stay on her toes in
    her approach.... returned home , had x-rays taken, and we called it
    a season.>>

    I had that injury a few times while in college, it is really annoying, and would definitely prevent someone from HJing well. A few shoe modifications allowed me to run XC quite well, but racing always hurt like hell for the 1st mile.

      Well, the good news here is that she takes off from her left leg. But with the speed she carries into her take-off there is considerable stress also on her right ankle.
      She is really fighting that sharp turn. Maybe a little wider curve might be something to consider.

        I was wondering what happened to her. Her absence from the big meets in Europe hurt my 'dream team' in Dan Kaplan's comp (http://run-down.com/fantasy/)

          I've missed her. Her Helsinki performance was fantastic.

          What has happened to Tianna Madison this year?

              Unfortunately, she miscarried her last child and she's blessed to have another one on the way.

                i dont mean to hijack the thread, and perhaps I'm taking this out of context, but staying on your toes in your approach is prolly not a good idea, especially in the curve.

                  After making two indoor appearances, Chaunte Howard opened her outdoor season last weekend with a 1.95m (6' 4¾") win at the Disney Invite at Lake Buena Vista, Florida. It also happens to be an Olympic 'A' qualifier and a world-leading performance.
