watching Beach run that 1k in the video and aware of the raw talent in the jumps does anyone else think he would be well suited to the 400m/400H ?

So, what happened yesterday??? 7.76 would have been worth 1043 points.

I never actually heard--he must have simply hit hurdles and stopped or fell.

Yes, my apologies, I meant in an earlier post the High Jump. I listened to a significant number of people (both athletes and coaches) this weekend discuss how many were simply using this meet as training and I must surmise that is what happened in this case. As meet director I speak with large numbers of spectators and many were hugely disappointed that athletes were not competing to their fullest. We actually had several winners when interviewed over the public address system say to the crowd that the meet didn't mean much to them as they were training through it. Its awful hard to sell tickets and get folks excited when these type of things occur.

From Frank Zarnowski's DECA website: "Trey Hardee announced that he would just start the [60 HH] race allowing him to vault."

How odd. Since Hardee ultimately ran 7.73 in the open HH.

Add the 7.73 to his other events and a 2:48 1000 and Hardee scores a PR 6247, winning the competition by 15 points (if Nixon were to run no faster).

My guess is that he ran the open hurdles instead of the Hept hurdles because the 1000 didn't fit into his training plans and he didn't want to finish 6 events with a clear shot at the title and then not run it.

Also, the multis group are pretty friendly. If he edges Nixon out it really does nothing for him but take both dollars and the championship away from the up-and-coming Nixon who, with some school eligibility issues might be a (semi-)pro and in need of every dollar and award.

Both of those theories seem reasonable.

Absolutely right user4, :) that is a great point, Curtis Beach would be a 45.0/48.0 400/400H man by now if he had focused on the events. :)

Even as a multis fan I would say, there is still time!
