Aurieyall Scott.....22.68 Kim Duncan........22.72
Ain't it ironic that Kimberly Duncan's first defeat comes with a pr? Aurieyall Scott is proving she is the new blue chip it girl in the 200. Kim has some real competition now and I like that.
Any video links for that 200m race?
See the home page link for the video of the 2.25 HJ in Taiwo's Hept. If you do that one, the 200 is available lower down.
Also, we all know that the outer lanes are absolutely necessary to do well in the 200 (and is why it was dropped from the WIC). The 0.04 differential between the two is possibly accounted for by the differences between lanes 5 and 6.
I will be following this girl closely. It is going to take alot to screw up the natural talent that she has. In perspective she is probably capable of running around 23 flat outdoors in the middle of winter. Her numbers right now are reminding me of Allyson Felix and Marion Jones. She is def one to watch.
Irene Ekelund today won 200m in Swedish Indoor championships on 23,15, breaking the national record by 0,32. This makes her nr7 in the world so far, and all that at age 15.

Having the pleasure of seeing it live, it was a great race from her, using her superiour flat speed to get out and never really being challenged. Her FS in the 60m acted as a good motivator!
Her outdoor PBs are now 6 years old this year, having stagnated the last few seasons and this run is her third best 400m inside, interesting to see in this post Olympic year what she can manage. Her technique has always looked a little off for me, lots of anterior pelvic tilt, if she could push her hips a little more forward I think she's do better.
230 during the Hept so Drouin broke the event best twice. Cato 6090 Hept and 785 LJ. Raedler, Patrick (Nebraska, and ?) went 787.
But the big result is that Sowinski is not even the best Big Ten guy in the 600 (300m track, though but it is not clear that a 600 on a 300m track is faster than one on the top banked 200, and they count for the record):
Loxsom, Casimir Penn State 1:16.33 1:15.42 (American Best)
I'm too embarrassed to post results from the Germany indoor champs cause some of the results are so unbelievably bad. 16.15m for triple m, 4.40m pole w, 6.38m long w, 54.22s 400m w and so on. I can't remember such a disappointing display of German T&F. However there is a very good PV competition going on at the moment, five guys over 5.70 already.
The only good result from the second day of German champs was the mens PV: 1. Björn Otto 5.85, 2. Malte Mohr 5.80m, 3. Hendrik Gruber 5.75m, 4. Tobias Scherbath 5.75m, 5. Raphael Holzdeppe 5.70m (Otto three attempts over 6.01m)
And the rest of todays competition was TERRIBLE. 2.15m HJ m for the title, 47.33 400m m and so on. In a country that brought us Mögenburg, Thränhardt, Wessig, Buß, Meyfarth, Henkel and Friedrich, 2.10m and 1.80 were enough for third places in the high jumps. Something is seriously wrong.
Here is the 400 from the SEC Conference meet. Note, in addition to the heats, there are also events like the 200, DMR and 4x400 that these guys are doing in a relative short period of time.

But Ron Bramlett ran 7.52 in the 2002 SEC prelim race, so THAT should be called the meet record......unless only Finals marks are eligible for MR's!!
It was really windy in Fayetville in Feb 2002.
But guess what?? There's ANOTHER error in the SEC meet record listings!! They have the women's 200 MR as Kerron Stewart's (then of Auburn) 22.46 from the 2007 meet as the MR!
That meet was in the Nutter Arena in Lexington KY, which is listed as a 290 meter track!! Oversize!! Therefore, NO RECORD!!! If it's not eligible for an NCAA record, then it shouldn't be eligible for a meet record either!!
So I'm not sure, but Kim Duncan's 22.54 today MIGHT be the REAL Meet Record!!
And with A Purvis and K Brown running 22.70 and 22.73 behind Duncan, it was quite a race!!
