WOW!!
She's on the cover!!
And that, after just TWO HSR's!!
Does that mean she'll pull an "Alan Webb" and make the cover TWICE this year??

She now has FOUR indoor records....and might have SIX (two of them breaking her OWN records!!) by the time the April issue goes to press!!

Will she even "out-Bolt" Usain??

ADDED: Let's hope she doesn't suffer the T&FN cover JINX!! :shock:

Scanned the T&FN Archives a bit, and found the first Bolt cover to be the Sept issue of 2003.
This gets tricky!! 8-)
He was born August 21st of 1986.
That issue probably went to press in late July or very early August.
Meaning Bolt was THEN 16 years and 11 months and change!!

Looked for Mary Decker when she was 14 or 15, but she didn't make the cover then.
(Though I think there was an article on her inside at that time!!)

Thus, Mary Cain, at 16 years and 9 months (and about one week) MIGHT be the youngest athlete EVER to make T&FN's cover!!

GH, do you know if there was anyone younger??

ok, the front page has info on the 2013 world youth champ in the ukraine july 10-14

the usa trials are june 25-26 in edwardswille ill

mary cain is eligible in 800, 1500, 3000

the schedule in ukraine would be far tougher than the 2 day illinois schedule would be as there are more tougher youth globally than in usa

i think 2 atletes could enter for the usa per event

in the 800


Mary Cain (Bronxville, N.Y.) 5-30-96 02:03.0

Raevyn Rogers (Kinkaid School, Houston, Tx.) 9-7-96 02:05.0

wwith 2:08 being 3rd

for 1500


*Mary Cain (Bronxville, N.Y.) 5-30-96 4:16.11’i

**Alexa Efraimson (Camas, Wa.) 2-20-97 4:23.4’

3rd 4:25

THERE ARE SEMIS IN 800 and 1500 in UKRAINE

FINAL ONLY IN UKRAINE

3000


*Mary Cain (Bronxville, N.Y.) 5-30-96 9:04.51 i

**Bella Burda (Arlington, Lagrangeville, N.Y.) 9-16-97 9:45.6 i

9:51 is 3rd

which of the 2 events will alberto have her run 800, 1500, 3000

NOT ALL 3...it might well be field in the events drives the pick for alberto

for the 800

IAAF World Youth Championship Qualifying Standard—2:13.50

Minimum Avg. Mark to Make World Youth Championship Final—2:07.27
i'd like cain to pursue the 800 option

more speed she has better 1500 would be


IAAF World Youth Qualifying Standard—4:36.00
Minimum Avg. Mark to make WYC final—4:30.27 for 1,500 (worth 4:50.30 for 1,600, 4:52.0 for one mile)


she already has the 1500 standard



3,000 METERS (straight final)
IAAF World Youth Qualifying Standard—9:53.00 (worth 10:38.8 for 3,200)
Minimum Avg, Mark for Eighth Place—9:34.63 (worth 10:16.9 for 3,200)

cain already has final standard, i prefer 800 option

if for some reason she can get 800 standard 2:07 which i think is achieveable, do the 3k
