    The T&FN status quo was my source.

    Any source on this? I do see it in the T&FN status quo article, but I cant find anything else online about it. And she recently (3 weeks ago) posted a photo of her hurdling on instagram with a quote of "never to late to go after whatever you want in life".

    Must have wanted to learn how to "fly".

    Got me curious enough to look it up. Mike Edwards was a redshirt freshman at Alabama in 2010, then transferred to Louisville for 2011 (Big East Outdoor Champ) & 2012. Transferred to Embry-Riddle for senior season and was 2013 NAIA Champ (indoors and out).

    Duane Solomon announced retirement. From front page today: https://www.instagram.com/p/CBqMe-dn...d=ooplxrmjczxl

    Funny, I was recently wondering about what happened to him. I liked him as an athlete, but liked Symmonds more, so was a little miffed when Solomon finished higher than him in "The Race". Silly, I know.

    4th all time in the 600 meters with 1:13.28 behind Bosse, Rudisha and Gray.
