  • Where is Alexandria Anderson?

    After a great college/trials season, she scratched from the first two high profile European meets. Hurt? Overextended from the long US season? Something else? Anybody knows?

    She's on the startlist for Rome this Friday so we'll see.

    I too have found it odd that she's scratched out of a Golden League meet and a Super Grand Prix meet in the 100 each time. I've commented on a couple other threads about it but it caught me off guard each time because the lane was left empty with the commentators calling her name and looking down on the track for her.

    I personally haven't seen that in the last few years (not saying it hasn't happened, just that I haven't seen it). Usually there's a waitlist for the 100 as high of a profile these meets are and for the lane to just be left open each time just seems odd.

        Don't think so. I think you're thinking of Jeter who caught a cramp.

        At any rate, looks like Alex scratched from Rome too....this time early enough for them to actually remove her from the startlist though.

          My guess is she is either doing some recovery/base work, or school. All I know is her sexy self need to be on the track

            I'll see if I can find the scope, Greg Foster is my homie. We competed against each other, begining in high school. Of course Alex is from the Chi, she competed against my kids.

              So I was correct in that she signed with Foster? What other athletes does he manage?

                Joanna Hayes comes to mind.

                  May have answered this myself...as of 2008 he was representing Antwon Hicks and Brandon Johnson.

                  And it looks like you're right on Hayes, TD...at least as of '07 and '08...

                    So I was looking at 2008 and 2007 lists of athlete representation and just forgot to scroll down to find 2009 info:

                      Not to be name dropping, but Foster stays 2 house down from my god-parents in STL...............his son is a pretty good HS b-baller.

                              That's cuz she was concentrating on the sprints too much...not saying I blaming her or the coaching staff considering her success.
