Good point lol. I haven't been following collegiate sprints very carefully (aka: basically not at all other than UCLA and USC to some extent (I'm a UCLA fan)) in the past couple years. I guess I'm gonna go watch some of this guy's championship runs on youtube now.
This makes a lot more sense now lol. I was like man... who is this guy... he seems really good lol
LSU's Natoya Goule lowered her own 800 school record at the Alumni Gold with a time of 2:00.76, and Laura Carleton obliterated LSU's 28-year-old school record in the 5000 at the Mt. SAC Relays with a time of 15:44.41.
<<Military service is also in the cards for No. 1 sprinter Abraham Hall, who will attend West Point Prep Academy on his way to the U.S. Military Academy. USMA officials say that for NCAA purposes this counts as active military duty and not a redshirt year.>>
Abraham ran in a very small meet back in PA yesterday (4/20), representing 'Army Prep'... 10.49 (2.6), 21.65 (-0.3), winning both.

Maazouzi is also 27 (28 in June) and didn't break 3:40 between 2009-12.
at this point, I split off the lightweight putter thread, and request that in the interest of keeping topics easy to find and appealing to a wider range of people that no new topics be broached in this thread, or by the end of the year it'll be dozens of pages long and have no real point.
i have no idea what a "compilation results thread" is, but anything that attempts to lump together marks from dozens of different competitions in different events at different levels makes zero sense at this time of year. During the indoor season, sure, but you might as well just start a thread that says "2013" and put everything in it.

Instead it makes more sense to open a new thread for every tiny meeting in the world where someone achieves a noteworthy time/mark ? Last year the outdoor results thread worked well and didn't get locked, this year it doesn't work anymore?
I actually really want the Outdoor Results thread to stay- I like to follow results from round the world but don't have the time to wade through them all and when something of note happens in a minor meet, it can go in there- I'd much rather have that then a hundred threads littering the forum...
I don't really see the issue- we've had one like this for years and it's always been fine?

How about having four threads: Sprint 2013 (up to 400h) Middle/long 2013 Jumps 2013 Throws 2013 In which we can post all notable results from small meets ?
Which still means you might end up with having to post in four separate threads for one small meet. The problem is, someone found a problem where there is none. So since "management" decided to close this thread, how about they come up with an alternative?
I enjoyed the thread, especially with inputs from scattered (yet significant) tidbits/insight from our European friends (actually all our non-American friends) which I often don't see/catch until reported by T&FN. The major meets have their own thread, so where does one put the other stuff - I'm still learning the appropriate balance between the two.
So, if during the next 4 months, there are meets that produce results of significance, but are not DL meets or major national/regional champs which may attract their own threads, we will have to start a new thread for any such performances.

Two results from the Tokyo meet last week---besides the kid's 10.40 behind Rodgers.....
Cory Leslie got an 11 second PR with his 8:20.08 steeple, behind 3 Kenyans. Lolo Jones beat Kellie Wells, 12.92 to 13.07, as Wells hit hurdle 9 (or 10??), and fell back. (In Jones case, it wasn't the time that mattered, but beating Wells!!)
Patricia Hall of Jamaica ran 50.86 in Brazil which so far puts her in the mix with the other JA 400 sprinters.
At Azusa Pacific some girl I never heard of formely of UNLV named Lekeisha Lawson had a 11.14(1.6) and 22.75(2.3) double so she is on the radar of ones to watch. She also has a 7.10 from Albuquerque this year.
Octavious Freeman won the Conference USA champs in 11.18(-1.1) over Aurieyll Scott in 11.27. Even though the times are average for their talents I expect big things for them this year at NCAA and expect to see them fight hard for a spot to Moscow.
English Gardner also in with a big PR of 22.62(1.1) at Pac 12 Champs.
Laura Weightman of Great Britain ran a mixed race 3000 PR of 8:43 in Stretford. According to Jesse Squires, it won't count as a WL because it was a mixed race. Weightman tweeted that it was a 20 second PR for her!! She's just 21, born July 1, 1991.
