  • Marvin Bracy

    Into headwinds Marvin Bracy runs 10.68 in the prelims and then pulled up to win the final in 10.52 (w -2.2). He never looked good in the final. He did his usual exaggerated forward lean for the first 40m (head bent down), but didn't show his usual acceleration. At 85m he let off the gas and grabbed his hammy (definitely looked more like a cramp than a pull). He didn't show up for the 200 after running a 21.02 prelim into a 1.4 wind.

    Re: Bracy cramps at Fla State Finals

    I was hoping for a lower time from Arman Hall in the 400... but did win both 200/400 with 21.16 / 47.08. Any observations from your end Marlow?

      Arman Hall won 400, 200, and anchored 4x400 in very dominant fashion. Head wind in straightaway.
      Shayla Saunders,Boyd Anderson, won 100-11.63 and 200-23.64 to lead her team to girls team title.

        Bracy's coach said the injury was more serious than he originally thought so he pulled him out of the 200.

        It was pretty windy today. Yesterday was a better day and I think the 3A performances showed it, relatively speaking.

          Looked like a very low 46 split on the 4 x 400.

              I had him 46.7 on the leg.

              The relay leg was one of the more controlled legs I've seen a HS kid run in that spot. He got the baton in 5th and just ran comfortably through 200m making up some ground but not a lot. He then turned it on into the turn and it didn't hurt that the Hallendale anchor went out too fast and gave him an opportunity to run him down.

                This kid is nothing short of amazing. He is unassuming like Jeremy Wariner, 5'11, 160, and yes, pale. His secret is even splits, which you hardly EVER see in HS (or college or pros!). He came from behind in the open 400 and then had 40m (not kidding!) to make up on the 4x4 anchor and got 30 of them on the final home stretch. Way cool way to end the meet. The win gave his school the State championship.

                  When is moving to the 8?

                          Hopefully, Bracy will be back in action soon...

                          It would be nice to see him healthy at the Adidas Dream 100, against Whitfield, and the Jamaican Jazeel Murphy (10.27), etc.

                            Interview on milesplit with his coach. Excerpt:

                            The original plan was to participate in the Golden South and that is still the tentative schedule, but if he's not 100 percent we will wait until the Dream 100 as a tune up for the trials. The Olympic Trials are the focal point so everything from now until then is putting Marvin in a position mentally and physically to compete with the greats.

                              given this, it sounds like a dream even if he will even make the semis at the trials
