    I talked with Fountain today (Monday) and she said the injury was a strained muscle. She was wearing a neck brace and thought the injury might be ok in another two or three weeks. It happened during the high jump and then she aggravated it on her second long jump (which would have placed second in the open long jump).
    She also said it was very painful and had a hard time sleeping. What a tough break for her.

    Wade got B by one point, so I think she got the spot for Berlin ... but the wind in two events (LJ and 200m) were very strong and I am not sure if this result counts for the standard.
    All wind speeds were below 4 mps, so the result is OK for qualifying purposes.

    This whole situation of choosing teams is a joke. I've paid the price and punched my ticket for Berlin.....and now I get Diana Pickler and Trey Hardee as our best hopes in the multi-events? Are you kidding me? We keep the Olympic Gold and Silver medalists at home in the interest of being "fair"? [email protected]$%*! You want to be fair, you send the proven, seasoned performers and don't penalize them for (at least in Clay's case) minor injuries. All this talk about bringing home the maximum medal count means nothing until the USATF wakes up and figures out a way to include deserving athletes who have the misfortune to have a single bad day (or an injury) at the trials. I mean no disrespect to either Hardee or Pickler, btw. I just want to see our best team out there.

    I know this subject has been beaten to death, but I feel violated; I'll be sitting in Berlin cheering on athletes who have zero chance of reaching the podium while two potential world champs sit at home. It may be fair in some persons' eyes, but it ain't right.

    But because you can now send a B standard with 2 A's...I think Wade will have to be sent. Unless US fed have an A standard only criteria?
    Yep the B is 5900... she has 5908 now... unless its wind assisted... but Nelso defo has the B who came 4th... Fountain's pb's would score her a full 1000 points more than that wow.

    Wade on 5900, is that even the B standard. Is there a possibility they can send Fountain over her because she has the A?

    so indeed fountain could have placed 3rd with 20.00 and 2.44.90.... though i assume the injury must be bad for her to miss out... such a shame i really aw it as her v jess for the worlds! and dare i say a 6800 score here!
    My jaw just dropped. I've been listening live but didn't catch this at all. This is why US trials are ruthless. Possible world Gold....gone.

    fountain had 5193 so she only needed 20.00 and 2.44.90 to score 6000 total and a possible top 3!
