    Emily Brown, with an Olympic "A" qualifier in women's steeple, entered the event and would have fit the list which started this thread. But recently she scratched steeple and will, instead, run the 5000m -- an event for which she lacks that qualifier.

    The first lady steepler I saw at 2008 USOT venue was Bridget Franek (NCAA East Regional Champ) who was examining the critical water jump facility at Hayward Field with her coach on Thursday, June 26.

      What ever happened to Briana Shook, who "won" the 2004 OT, but was DQ'd for missing a barrier? Injured? Retired?

        Women's Steeple - B. Shook

        The last time I saw Briana Shook compete was at a six-nation race in May 2005 where she had difficulty hurdling due, I heard, to an injury. Our conversation did not dig into that misfortune. That same meet also provided my last conversation with Elizabeth Jackson, a pioneer in women's steepling.

        Shook subsequently did not get to the inaugural World Championship women's steeple at Helsinki but Jackson did run there. Jackson's coach (Patrick Shane) told me later that she was disapointed to have not lowered her personal best enough that season. She, also, has subsequently not competed.

        So the absence of Shook, a great frontrunner, and Jackson who effectively used the Henry Marsh tactic of staying back from traffic until the last lap, is regrettable in this first-ever women's Olympic steeple year.
        Both are previous national record holders in this event.

        By the way, Shane (the BYU pioneer coach of this event) has also trained Kassie Andersen -- the ultimate dark horse of women's 2008 USOT steeplechase. And Ann Gaffigan, official winner of the 2004 trials steeple, arrives in Eugene tonight for another attempt.

          Throwing a Little "whoop" in for DiCresenzo! God knows, her story, however milked it may be, would make a welcome change to all of the negative press that can come with this sport. It would be a fun story for all of the TV stations to carry and will bring some attention to an event, that will otherwise be left firmly in the shade!

                  Even 10:02 makes the final, which is a slight surprise. I wonder if some of the lesser lights saved something and still have a good chance in the final (e.g., DDiC, LG, CM-V)?

                    She ran a smart race yesterday. Also, she was the only athlete who hurdled the water jump rather than stepping on it, taking a cue from the Kenyans. She was much quicker getting out of the water than any of the other steeplers, particularly over the last few laps of the race.

                        No worries, man. I think it makes for a great story for the sport as well. She's a great track athlete who's also intelligent (she went to Columbia after all) on top of being attractive. We need more stories like this.

                          Hokey-smokes! What moron made the decision to leave the barrier in place just a few meters past the finish line? Jenny Barringer was sprinting to the tape, her eyes got bid and she had to do a quick exit-stage-right.

                            I think in the same race there was a brilliant move by a camera man to stand in front of the finish line clock/display so no one could see it. Rocket science.
