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?

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?

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.
