Her twitter says it's just a slight cramp.

As in Yohan Blake like cramp? Lets hope not.

Bailey was never really a factor in the race and like I was saying looks heavy. He and his training partner Ahmad Rashaad both looking like body builders. Rashaad ran 10.69 yesterday and just 2 years ago as a USC senior he was a 10.1 guy! :(

While Jeter is saying its a cramp I often find you don't really know until 48 hours after the injury what the full status is much like Blake last week.

What was I saying a couple days ago about Eaton taking on the big boys in the 200 and hurdles? I've always felt he could be world class in hurdles and long jump and skip all that other deca training and compete more often and make more money.

Very impressed with Yvette Lewis' 12.43, although windy (2.7). She's finally has a contract (with Brooks), left Chula Vista OTC to go back to Hampton VA (I believe as an assistant coach), and has been running great since indoors... looks very strong.

Also, very impressed with Team Jet's 41.79 W4x1 relay (M. White-Jeter-L. Williams-Okagbare)... and they beat up on a pretty good Kersee All-Star team of (Harper-Felix-Tarmoh-Powell) with a margin of victory over a second. For perspective, the Jamaicans ran their national record last year in the Olympics in 41.41... and only five national teams have ever run faster: USA (40.82), GDR (41.37), JAM (41.41), RUS (41.49) and FRA (41.78)

GrassHopper sez: The faster the hurdler, the more DISadvantageous the wind is going to be.

Agreed, but Eaton has recently said that wind brings him too close, also. Looks like he managed it fine this time, eh?

Nice early-season meet for Lea Wallace: 4:10.79 (.02 shy of PR) for third in 1500 Friday, 2:01.86 (.53 off PR) in 800 Saturday.

Good to see US HJ's in good early season form, w/ Kynard equaling his PR... I guess the same for Canadian fans, with Mason also equaling his PR today...

Very positive for Kynard and Mason. Kynard was clean until 2.34, unusual for him + there was no temptation to start passing at 2.34 after the first miss.
Canada now has two jumpers to challenge Boswell's Canadian record (2.35) Drouin has done it indoors. Mason is an incredibly focused individual who might this year be better than ever. He's even worthy of funding from Athletics Canada again!

Here's hoping Jesse Williams now has sorted out his problems from the indoor season.

'Per'... and a 7' 3" jump from a H.S. junior, Randall Cunningham in the H.S. portion of the meet.

But I've never heard of the the 'Olympic Dev' heat winner here at Mt. SAC?, other than seeing her name on TeamJet 41.79 relay today... 11.07 (1.2), #3 in World as of today... her previous PR was 11.40?

Edit: referencing Mandy White...

Yes, and dad could also jump... quoting 'jhc68' from an historical thread, "Randall (Sr.) high jumped 6'8" practically walking on the approach due to his needing arthroscopy on his non-take off knee." (probably 30+ years ago, when in HS, I assume).
Note: his daughter Vashti, a freshman, jumped 5-10 at this meet for 2nd place, with the winner at 6-0 (US#1).

I thought Shelby Houlihan was running the 800m at Mt Sac?

Her best legal was 11.53 I think and 23.50's at best. I think no better than 4th at PAC 10's in the 100 while at Oregon. Last in the NCAA 100 final one year and a consistent 11.5-11.6/23.6 sprinter over 4 years in college. Is she coached by John Smith? Whoever her coach is, I guess this proves how much better a sprint coach he/she is than the Oregon coaches.

Sounds like another Jeter to me - similar performances in college. Hey, maybe she'll win a world 100 title like Jeter. Aftert all, hard work makes you faster these days.

And Blessing 22.31. Wonder what she'll do in the 100 - her best event. Or Long Jump. 10.6/10.5 - 24 feet? Wow! And Yvette Lewis running in the 12.4's since she's been back with Pierce. OMG! That Kellie Wells must have rubbed off on her. After all, wasn't she better than Kellie while at Hampton anyway? Why should Kellie get all the glory? Funny how all these great performances are flying under the radar these days. I guess nobody wants to discuss. Lewis sure has gotten faster after all these years at 12.8-13.0. No need to quoter her times since 2006. I've been following her closely each year. No need to triple jump anymore.

And Eaton? Unprecedented. A decathlete beating a world Champ in his event? Don't think I've seen that before. Wait a minute. Didn't Jenner beat Ryun in the 1500? Didn't Obrien beat Allen Johnson in the hurdles?

Seems like anybody willing to "do the work" can be great nowadays. Cheapens the sport. But the fans like it and the sponsors love it, right? Oh a big sponsor did pull out of the Diamond League, didn't they?

Let's see how long this post lasts.

Jeter looked to be in fabulous shape. Poor start, and to me it seemed clear she was going to win that before the hamstring.
