    After seeing German F. acquit himself quite well in the 5k, it made me wish Mason Finley would've given a run at the senior guys in this DT comp.

    Earlier in the day Mason, in his 2nd-priority event, put the shot to #3 all-time on the Am. Jr. list (if I'm reading that correctly and the implement sizes haven't changed) only behind Mike Carter and the kid who finished 1st today, Clarke of ASU.

    With Mason's size (6'-9" and 350lb or something), I'm guessing his transition to the heavier implements will be easier for him than it will be/has been for his smaller counterparts.
    Sorry, you've got your UCLA goggles on again.

    Here's the all-time U.S. Junior list, and it's hugely meaningless since they reduced the weight of the shot. The * people made their marks with a 16-pounder, and most history's best enver saw the new Junior shot, which only came into being in this decade.

    21.05i* 69-¾ Terry Albritton (unat) 2/22/74
    20.65* 67-9 Mike Carter (Tx HS) 7/04/79
    Sean Shields (Az) 7/11/02
    20.54 67-4¾ Shields 7/16/02
    20.39i* 66-10¾ Albritton 2/22/74
    20.20* 66-3¼ Randy Matson (TxAM) 10/17/64
    20.13* 66-½ Jeff Chakouian (Ky) 5/19/01
    19.99* 65-7¼ Karl Salb (Kansas) 9/10/68
    19.95 65-5½ Garrett Johnson (FlSt) 7/18/03
    19.79 64-11¼ Cory Martin (Aub) 6/26/04

    Haven't talked to any of the throwers, but the wind had to have been a super factor yesterday, what with half of the final 8 being guys from the first flite (and the flites seeded on marks).

    Had to be far more more helpful (or less harmful) for the first flite than the second. Formchart blown all to hell.

    The experience prevail, US DThrowers male usually not perform in majors ... it will be difficult to see any american in WC final.

    THANK YOU, pvp!!


    BIG congrats to Rome, coming back after his huge disappointment in '08. Not seeing him make it to Beijing was one of my only regrets of the meet last summer.

    'Way to go, Tiny Boy (an old nickname at Boise State)!! You better get something to eat.

    :]

    Ditto, we're in la la land out here. I wish USATF would have someone do this on their site. It takes them over an hour or two to get the finals posted. Us quasi pro gnosticators get really frustrated

    I'm not going to complain, something is better then nothing.

    Thanks again.
