    I read the FAQ and it requires a minimum of 400-500kbps -- my provider maxes out at 100kb, so no chance for me. But if you're in the N. America or Europe, you should be getting well over 500kb. If not, change your provider.

      Regarding the wind readings, I thought that for totals to be considered wind legal the average wind speed for the 100, LJ and 110h had to be under +2.0 AND none of the individual event readings were +4.0.

      Is this still the case or is it now only the average wind speed across the three events that matters?

                  Rises' PR in 6-5 (1.96) , so perhaps this was just a bad day (he did jump 1.89 at Big 12). The LJ looks like a PR (previous best was 7.33)...

                  He regularly throws over 16m in SP, so we shouldn't be making assumptions about his leap. Also his dad was a SPer (see this story for a mention of that http://www.columbiatribune.com/news/200 ... ine-at-mu/).

                    Eaton is on cruise control!

                    SIde note: Can anyone tell me whatever happened to Michael Morrison of Florida, as he was a stud HS decathlete and started off well at Florida then had some injuries...?

                    Actually, if someone could tell me about both Michael Morrisons that attended Florida. The elder Morrison had a huge amount of talent and would have probably done well in the deca.

                        for the stats nerds out there:

                        Eaton already has the 4th best "running" decathlon ever (scores in the 4 running events grouped together), from last year's Olympic trials:

                        http://www.decathlon2000.ee/eng/statistics.php?art=840

                        and he is 72 points up on that pace so far. He ran a 14.26 hurdles and a 4:20 in Eugene, and if he matches those marks he'll be very close to what Daley Thompson did in 1986. Granted he'll be hard-pressed to run a 4:20 in the 1500 if he's got a safe lead, but fun to look at I think.

                        I also think it's cool that the relatively smallish Bryan Clay has the 2nd best throwing decathlon ever.

                          What happened to Jeremy Taiwo of Washington? He was qualified and announced as an entrant by the UW SID on June 2.

                            Eaton just blew away his PR in 110H, knocked 14.01 down to 13.85 — into a -1.3 headwind.

                              That is another 994 points for Mr. Eaton, barring injury or a disaster in the PV, this looks to be an amazing competition for him.

                              Will he have sufficient recovery time for nationals? Everyone is concerned with Rupp running the 10k and 5k and still recovering. It seems to be a pretty valid question here as well.
