  • a result I don't think I've ever seen before

    (although perhaps in a country like Korea the Parks or the Kims may have done it at some point)

    How about first three in a competition all with same name?

    SEC women's weight:

    1 Smith, Juliana SO Mississippi 18.97mP 62-03.00 10
    FOUL 18.11m 18.18m FOUL 18.97m 18.18m
    2 Smith, Kristin JR Kentucky 18.88mP 61-11.50 8
    18.02m 18.88m FOUL FOUL FOUL FOUL
    3 Smith, Heather JR Kentucky 18.56m 60-10.75 6
    17.82m 18.28m 17.75m 18.08m 18.56m 18.44m

    I wonder if the Williams clan from Jamaica have finished one-two-three in a domestic 400m race before...

      Not yet, but they came close at the 2006 NCs:
      1 Novlene Williams 50.24
      2 Shericka Williams 50.57
      3 Sonita Sutherland 51.37
      4 Clora Williams 51.80

          That would be a notch above, and would receive my vote.

              I don't think that would make the pages of a family oriented magazine, though...

                Too bad Ruslan Gataullin didn't stick with pole vaulting since we'll miss out on a Gataullin & Bubka (Oleksandr) competition.

                    2 Ben Hopkins 54.45

                      Interesting thread! I enjoy life's little coincidences are "perfect storm" type convergences.

                        Would be fun to see the three Robert K. Cheruiyots (Kipkoech, Kiprotich and Kiprono) to sweep a marathon. Didn't happen yet.

                        This year's Boston marathon had two of them plus Evans Cheruiyot. Unfortunately, they didn't do so well (5th, 8th and DNF). Maybe next year. :wink:

                              Some other da Silva sprinters:

                              Marcelo da Silva
                              Rui da Silva
                              Joao Eugenio da Silva
                              Mauro da Silva
                              Luis Gonzaga da Silva
                              Fabiano da Silva

                              By the way, Smith is by a clear margin a more popular family name for sprinters.
