    There are several conflicting reports on the wind.

    Flotrack posted results showing 2.0.
    MileSplitUSA says it's legal.
    Jon Mulkeen says it was windy.
    Ato Boldon tweeted from an airplane, saying it was 2.5.
    But then Boldon tweeted again (in response to people saying it was legal), saying he was confused, but was unable to phone anyone because he was in a plane.

    Windy or not, still an INCREDIBLE time!!

    ADD: Mulkeen just tweeted it's LEGAL!!
    At least two knowledgeable observers in the stands thought they heard stadium announcer Toni Reavis announce the wind as +2.5 right after the finish, and again make a comment about it not being wind-legal during the awards ceremony. There's definitely some confusion.

        Her performance is Michael Carter-esque

            And I'm NOT saying it's better! Just somewhat akin!
            When you compare with world senior performances she is definitely on a par with Carter, especially when you take into account her age.

            Lindgren's 8:40 INdoors in '64, when no one had broken 9:00 (except for him!).
            Ditto with Ryun's being first to break 4:00.
            Agree with Lindgren and Ryun. Rudy Chapa and Mary Shea had great performances but I think Candace Hill's performance today is better.

            Robinson's 44.69 is currently equal 122nd all-time world. Candace Hill's is equal 78 all-time world. However, at the time Robinson was, I believe, all-time 9th.

            Sorry Aaronk - but as great as Mary Cain's performances were, those performances do not rate at a world level for senior performances on a par with Candace Hill, Michael Cartyer and Darrell Robinson.

            It is a great performance but it is impossible to equate it at a world level as it is a non-event. His HS hammer record of 66.92 is not on a par with Hill, Carter, Robinson.

                I think he ran for Abilene Christian.

                  Another comparison at how incredible her performance is at age 16 is Jacko threw 20.38 at age 16. The IAAF world all.time list stops at 21.04 at 118th.

                  Her time is 3rd all time WJR

                    Suffice to say, she's gonna be THE most WATCHED (and speculated on) athlete at the USATF Junior meet next week!

                    I just hope the pressure (and the whirlwind aftermath of her 10.98) doesn't get to her.

                    BTW, I was surprised to learn she's from Georgia. For some reason, I'd thought she was from Florida!

                    ADD: My error. I thought she had to run USATF Jrs to make the Pan Am team. Guess not!

                        Taking into account only performances after 2000 Jacko's performance is ranked 142th (according to all-athletics).

                          Regardless of the wind this performance is huge. And we thought that witney was a big deal last year !

                            The meet ended almost five hours ago and there are no results posted on the meet website yet. Pretty pathetic. Or am I being picky?

                                Although the 2.0 wind is apparently confirmed, this ties US all-conditions best for HS by Angela Williams. Williams also holds the all-conditions best for an American Junior.

                                HS 10.98 in 1997
                                AJr 10.96 in 1999
