    New article on the home page. Says he's PV'd 15'6" since Arcadia. I heard he ran a hand timed 20.9 in the 200m at the ABQ city champs last week.

        Yes, and he will get better at starting/accelerating. Also, what would his stand-alone marks look like. The deca does not have much effect on the 100 (since it is at the beginning, but the last-event 1500 is typically well below the potential of a rested athlete.

          Oops. I had misread that quote. Well, never mind.

          He's a stud.

            In the same article they list his PBs and point out that 3 of them are better than
            Clay's marks at Beijing:

            "Curtis Beach, who set the U.S. high school record in the decathlon last month, notched performances in three events that were better than U.S. Olympic gold medalist Bryan Clay. "

                    That 1,500 will make up for weak throwing. This kid will be fun to watch.
