  • World Indoor happenings

    Stember didn't qualify for the 800 semis. Neither did Peterson.

    Pavlysh won the shot. She was one of my picks for the contest!

      Doesn't Stember make the semi's for having one of the 6 fastest non-winning times?

        I wrote too soon! Didn't realize the heats were still going on and so time qualifiers hadn't been determined yet. I apologize. Peterson still didn't qualify.

          I guess that 1:57 was "a little eye opener" for Mutola. Second place in that heat must have been on backstretch when she finished.

            It's fun watching the M60 heat times stack up against each other. Crawford's looookin' gooood.

                I am getting live coverage here in Jamaica. Powell pulled up in the 60 semis. Worried that he may not stand up to the rounds in Greece. I hope Mr. Francis prepares him better for the Olympics. Franno is a good coach but his athletes have a tendency to get hurt. i am not just talking about Powell and Brigitte Foster, when he was at Wolmers Boys it used to happen as well. Crawford showed a lot of top end speed in his heat. Him and Gardener should be fun later

                    Look at the reaction times:
                    Gevaert 7.13 (0.127)
                    Aaron 7.14 (0.214!)
                    Devers 7.15 (0.152)

                      Forget the reaction times for a second...

                      How is this for a strange scenario:

                      A 43 yr (and 5 months) old woman from Jamaica
                      now running for Slovenia
                      making the IAAF World Indoor finals in the 60 meters

                      Huh???

                        Actually, Ottey *did not* make the final. That was an error. The IAAF web site had her with the "q" qualifier and Eurosport reported it as well but then corrected themselves just now.

                          Women's 60m 19:52 : Gail Devers takes her third world indoor championship in 7.08s seconds, Gavaert in 7.12, with the Belarussian Nesterenko third in the same time! Disappointment for the French.

                            My mistake...the heat results on the IAAF web site had her qualifying for the finals, but I just looked at the start list for the finals and she's not on it. Sorry about that.
