  • Mt. SAC

    Naysayers will say that this is 'too little, too late' but I prefer to see it as a big step in the right direction.

      This is clearly a very positive step in the right direction. We just need a a bunch more of them...

        Some Canuck content that seems to have been left off the above:

        7 Paul Morrison Canada 13:26.57

        He could hardly run 100 meters a couple of years ago.

          No disrespect intended - I was just trying to point out that USA prospects (much maligned as of late) are improving. Canadians seem to be a little stronger pro rata, yes/no?

            I realize that. I was just kidding around. I would say that the women distance group is probably stronger pro rata and the men are close but Scheibler is hanging them up soon so those are big shoes to fill.

              Riley has been one of my favorite athletes since his junior year at Brooline. I think they guy works hard and is gutsy as heck. Excellent improvement over his previous PR, and the fact that he won the race with a 56,4 closer meant he went after it!

                Riley's kick was very impressive, the sort that produce results in slow championship races (not likely in Athens, however). There was a large group together the whole race. Kennedy did a bit of a surge to take the lead at 450m but a bunch took him at 350m. Sorry, but he isn't go to make an impression this year. (LA traffic trivia: 2.5 hours to get there; 45 mins to get back. 42 miles)

                      15:08.70.... her 15:09.67 indeed just misses.

                        Ida Nilsson:s time of 15.33,18 is #3 Sweden all-time performer, trailing only Sara Wedlund:s 15.06 and Midde Hamrin:s 15.27 person bests.

                        Nilsson (17 seconds) - as was the case with Bei (27 seconds) - improved drastically from previous person-best and ran well.

                          This mornings LA Times reports that Montgomery has switched to the Invitational 100m and will race Greene et al! I'm going, will report back later. Weather here is a bit dodgy though. Chilly by LA standards and very windy.

                            You can watch Live video feed from the meet if you go to mtsac.edu. Its a little choppy but better then nothing for those of us who aren't there.

                              Um . . . it doesn't work.
