    Maybe it wasn't meant that way!

    That said, having no---or little--experience on banked tracks shouldn't have anything to do with running out of your lane!

    This was a heat, and she obviously was going to make the final!
    So why take the chance of a DQ---in a heat?
    She said in an interview that she WANTED to run fast in her heat---to make a statement!

    But look what happened!
    If she had been more careful, she might have STILL gotten the CR---AND made the final!
    But she lost both!!

    (Not that it's comparable,but the same can be said of anyone who false starts!)
    As bobguilid said, we all acknowledge your incredible depository of statistical data.

    However, when you cross over and blame and insult this young lady that is just plain nasty. And it leads me to ask:

    How many times has aaronk competed at a national level in the 200m?
    Has aaronk ever sprinted indoors at any level?
    Does aaronk have any idea what it is like to be sprinting on a 200m track with others?

    I was never much of a sprinter, on a good 10.7 for 100m, downhill with a gale blowing. I competed once on a 220yd bank track- ITA in 440yds in Salt Lake City against Lee Evans. Got my arse whipped. So my indoor banked sprint competition experience is somewhat limited. I did however often do sprint training on the 176 yard banked track in the main West Point gym, although most of my winter training was on our 330yard flat indoor tartan track in the field house.

    From that experience what I can tell you is that it is real easy to slightly lose your balance and step off the track; especially in a race like a national championship 200m heat.

    The young lady will be gutted. But she doesn't need her face rubbed in it with insensitive outbursts like yours.

    crappy indoor conditions though. From the bottom of the results page:

    <<light rain, 64F, wind 9mph>>

    :-)

    Cheserek bounces back with last 1600 in 4:01.83 to win 3000 from Justyn Knight by .3.

    I think that was evident in the women's 60 final ..... Christian Coleman is looking mighty impressive.

    Freshman Josh Kerr blows Cheserek away with a final 600 in 1:20.61!! Can that be right?Cheserek had taken the lead between 809 and 1009, then Kerr led at 1209. Last 200 2 seconds faster than Cheserek's who probably eased off when he saw he was beaten.
    Cheers,

    Huh, am I the only one that has aaronk blocked? He is the only person that I have blocked, too.

    Good fun meet so far, as I am watching on ESPN3. But I don't think I'll last much more than the women's 3000.

    aaronk -- Here is my $.01 worth of opinion on this, not that it matters: I did not read anything in the posts preceding yours that seemed like excuses or alibis, or claims to be untrained, poorly coached, etc. Instead, I thought I was reading some interesting discussion and analysis of why that performance may have turned out the way it did.

    Is it really necessary to describe this misstep in performance as "STUPID"? Your enthusiasm for the efforts and performances of athletes, especially younger ones, is admirable. Moreover, I am sure I have read your critiques here of the negativity and personal attacks that are common on other message boards, and I would agree with such assessments. So, your vitriol here, over this DQ, is surprising to me.
    ^ ^ Amen to this. I love (for the most part) your passion and insight for athletics, aaronk. I would love to meet you someday, and just talk T&F for hours. It is tiresome though, when passion crosses the border to critical accusations. Even highly trained adults, at times, make mistakes.

    Sorry yea meant to say tied. "Superior" to it since Myles-Mills was at altitude.

    He now goes on to run 20.11 in the 200, just 0.01 off of Spearmons AR and NCAA record of 20.10.
