  • Mt SAC

    Strangely there has been no discussion on the open events at Mt SAC about to unfold today. I for one am super excited for the sprint action as a number of athletes make their debuts or individual debuts for 2012.

    Dix, Ndure and Rodgers will clash in the 100. I expect big things from Dix in his first individual race under John Smith's tutelage. Not sure what to make of Rodgers who has gone missing since his drug positive last July but will see if he is in the mix. Start list shows Ryan Bailey as entered but I am hearing that he will only run on the relay as he has only had 2 weeks practice under Smith after suffering some sort of serious ankle or foot injury in the fall.

    Richard Thompson will be in the 200 and he too will be making his individual debut under John Smith's training and I could see a return to the form that earned him a medal in 2008. Plus the 4x1 bears watching as its rare that a foursome has PR's of 9.85 (Thompson), 9.88 Dix and Bailey, 9.99 Ndure as the one Nike will put on the track today. Perhaps 37 low with good sticks? Certainly the American all-comers record of 37.69 is in jepordy today.

    I am also pumped to see the men's 400 today which no doubt will reveal a little more about Jeremy Wariner's status along with David Neville, Greg Nixon and Gil Roberts while Nellum will be in the other hot heat.

    Of course Carmelita Jeter will be making her 100 season debut and all signs point to a fast opener after her blazing 200 last week at UCLA. I think 10.7 high if winds are in her favor or faster.

    Could we see decathlete Ashton Eaton topple defending World 110 hurdle champ Jason Richardson who will be making his season debut? Wouldn't stun me as Eaton is further along in his racing and has made huge strides as a hurdler and Richardson will be shaking the cobwebs off. The 400 hurdles have Angelo Taylor against Jesua Anderson in what should be an exciting race as well for April.

    The men and women's 800 fields bear watching as well. Well I am off to the track, lets get things rolling.

            Molly Huddle looked pretty impressive in 5000m. So much better than her photo finish loss at the US XC championships.

            Lawi Lalang lost again... this time to Cam Levins. When I saw him at NCAA XC, I thought he was unbeatable. But now after two straight loss, he looks so human.

              First Ryan Bailey sighting of the year? Really good anchor leg for HSI.

                Great anchor leg by Allyson Felix in winning the 4 x 100m coming from behind.

                Great that she is working on her sprint speed. She will need it in London.

                Just saw huge Jamaican Flag in the background while they were interviewing Allyson.

                  Who's doing the guy doing the commentary? I'm about 100% sure he's a thrower.

                        Dix. 9.85 (2.4) with a crappy start. That's a faster corrected time than Blake's in Jamaica.

                            I don't think Blake has anything to worry about.
