      Nelson did get "A" running 8:21 and change. Ran a great race. Gutsy performance by Famiglietti and it paid off.

          Seems like Wetmore's athletes--current and former--did very well at these trials. Congratulatios to a great coach!

            I am now an official FamFan. He HAMMERED the whole race and hung on gamely in the end when it looked like Nelson and McAdams were making a run at him with 300 to go!

                    Today's Denver Post describes Slattery suffering an Achilles tendon injury in the semi that really flared in the final. It sounds like he might have even ruptured it.

                      -----------
                      Thirteen started, 12 finished because one fell in the water. A sizable group of persons, possibly officials, rushed to the pit and appeared to be working quickly to get the fallen steepler out before the field came around again.

                      (The space between water jump hurdle uprights at Hayward track is filled with opaque material that prevents approaching runners from seeing someone down in the water pit and consequently stepping on the fallen athlete. NCAA rules, but not those of IAAF or USATF, permit such vision blockage.)

                      I expected some explanation because the situation, including group converging at the accident site, was similar to others in this meet including Tyson Gay's fall in a 200m quarterfinal. But I, and other at Trials who spoke to me, learned no details about the fallen steepler. However, the local newspaper's tiny agate type summary included this: Steve Slattery, Nike, DNF.

                      Thanks to Dr. Jay for providing the link to Denver newspaper story with its steeple details.

                        I'm impressed with Billy Nelson's racing. He's having a great year. I would not have pegged him for an 8:21 steeple a few years ago. I'm especially impressed because of his relatively short stature and those pesky barriers he has to hurdle. So I had to look up this old thread with some stats on steeplers and their heights:

                          Nelson ran great and my hats off to him. Ran into Alcorn after the meet. Great, humble guy and was sorry he didn't make it as well. Talk about a guy with a great season from indoors on- but hearing that Nelson didn't run cross and was injured a bit through the winter, I can see how the length of the collegiate season caught up with Alcorn at the end as it seemed to do with several collegiate athletes while it had little or no effect on others. As expected, it appeared to have an effect on the distance kids more than others with cross, indoor, and outdoor and a lot of mileage in that time frame.
