  • Dwight Phillips: Making a statement

    8.43m in the lj.
    10.12 in the 100m

    Looks like DP is on his way to accomplishing his goal of qualifying in both the long jump and 100m.

    Don't know if he reads this forum but I'm sure the lack of talk about him in the lj thread really spurred him on.

    If you don't know if he reads this forum, how could you be sure that the lack of talk about him in the lj thread really spurred him on?

      This kid seems to be very talented, where does he train?

          Dwight Phillips trains at Arizona State University. He is also a volunteer assistant coach.

            He definitely should qualify for the Olympics in the LJ (and will be one of the favourites in Athens if he does), but it will be a BIG upset if he makes the US team in the 100.

              Phillips said Saturday that he's not planning to double at the Trials - the events overlap. He does want to run the 100 in some European races this summer. Walter Davis had a narrow foul on his sixth attempt that was about 28 feet.

                wally is an enigma

                if your sayinfg he was close to 28' (8.54), then that would indicate he's close to doing a massive PR (best is 8.24)

                if that translates to TJ ( 17.59 PB), then he would be in near 18m territory

                has he TJ'ed this year ?
