  • Hopley CR in discus!

    With all the hoo-hah about the windy sprints and fast 400's at the Midwest Regional in College Station, let's not overlook a stunning Collegiate Record in the men's discus by SMU's Hannes Hopley. The South African senior uncorked a 67.66m/222-0 toss on his opening effort to nab the record.

    Great performance by a true gentleman of the sport. Sad that SMU's AD has dumped the sport after this year.

    Why, in the results, do they have the college best as:

    70.84m 5/27/1992 Kamy Keshmiri, Nevada

      Isn't Mate's La Jolla mark on sloping ground?

      edit: No, I'm confusing that with somewhere else, I think. Keshmiri's is the American CR.

        Keshmiri had a steroid DQ later that year

          The original database with the records was provided by the NCAA.

              I was just going to say why they still have it listed there in the official results.

                Keshmiri's positive test was by the IAAF flying squad: the NCAA, in its inimitable way, doesn't recognize anything anybody else does.

                I would further note, by the way, that the positive test was on May 15, just 12 days before his "record"

                  Was Keshmiri:s high school discus record from Golden West 1987 striken from the record books as well?

                    No. Nor was his 218-5 CR from '91, which is the mark that Hopley broke
