One other note of interest (to me) in this meet:

In the w800, Diane Cummins (dob 19 January 1974) meets Laura Roesler (dob 19 December 1991). Pacer aside, Roesler is the youngest athlete in the field. Needless to say, Cummins is the oldest. Cummins, the Canadian NR holder (1:58.39, Rieti 2 September 2001), is a month shy of being 18 years older than Roesler.

Two athletes I appreciate and have enjoyed watching: Roesler's recent rise from "big fish, small pond" prep exploits to collegiate excellence & 2:00.23 SB/PB. For Cummins, it is her long-term excellence. In addition to her NR, & Commonwealth & Pan-Am medals, and her 26 sub-2:00 performances, I have learned to appreciate her longevity in the sport, & especially in this event. When Cummins ran her NR, Roesler was still 9 yo, and just beginning 4th grade. Maybe this will be the day that Roesler gets her first sub-2:00.

Cummins has always interested me for an unusual reason. My company founder (one of three) and long-time president was Dianne Cummins [plus acquired last name] and she is Canadian by birth.

Roesler might have been a mere nine but was only a few years from her first high school state places and then multiple titles [started in 7th grade?].

^Re: Roesler. Indeed. Middle-school slacker that she was, Roesler was a state champion in only one event in grade 7, the 400m. In the Fall of that school year, at age 12, she was 2nd at the ND state xc championships, and then in the Spring (which I think lasts about an hour in ND) at age 13, in track, along with her 400m state title she was 5th in the 800m. Wasn't until her 8th grade year that she started winning pretty much everything in track, and earning another 2nd & two titles, in XC.

And, continuing this coincidental intergenerational connection with Diane Cummins, 2005 was the one year among her best (from 2001 through 2007) that she did not break 2:00; she was Canadian champion, and was SF at Helsinki WC.

Now back to our regular programming...

Was able to watch the video feed of the meet. Solomon ran a 1:13+ 600. Results link was not functioning, however. :( At least it wasn't updating results. Roesler ran about a 2:01 for 2nd.

women's 800 -- large field, pacer kind of ran away from them, as the pack sort of stayed together through a conservative 400.

Bishop 2:00.67 SB
Roesler 2:01.29
Vessey 2:01.59 (big finish in last 100, from way back)
Belleau-Beliveau 2:01.85
J. Smith 2:02.00
Cummins 2:02.41 SB

Ashton Eaton put up credible marks in his two events: 14.69 in SP, no series available; and 46.24 in 400m, nothing on wind, but I'll check other events. The competition was there in the mid-45s but he settled for 5th. Good workout, but I'd like to see a bit more fire there, esp. after seeing him lapse in Hurdles at USATF after beating the World Champ at Mt. Sac.

Attitude counts, all that safe/conservative stuff notwithstanding.

Edit: Theisen ran 13.18 for 3rd, solid.

There was minimal wind during the 400m.

Also - what an absolute JOKE that Aaron Brown wasn't DQ'd in the 100m after a blatant false start. He was 2 strides out of the blocks and no one else had moved.

Spearmon put up a solid mark into a headwind.

Thanks for that 'rh'. Any sense of Eaton's first 200m? Did he attempt to stick with the leaders. He has a tendency to go easy, esp. in Decathlon, to assure something in the 46s; so mid or even high 22s works, but he'd need to see ~22.0 for a shot at a PR. With his speed, and relaxed stride, that's be a snap; it's a matter of fine-tuning the strategy to the circumstance. I was hoping for 45.5 or thereabouts, and it looks like the conditions were there. Lane No.?

Eaton was in lane 6, outside Mance & Mitchell, iirc. Also, it seemed to me that Eaton got out well, or at least OK, in the first ~200. But I'm no expert on these things. Video is on Flotrack; however, because it's a rather basic video with somewhat limited camera angles (no criticism of Flotrack's coverage -- it's what one would expect in such a broadcast), with the focus on the leaders you don't see Eaton too much, especially in the 2nd half of the race. Anyway, that's my $.01 worth of insight.

He made no attempt to stay with them. It looked like a test or cautious run to me.

9 Days after a full Decathlon, in searing heat/humidity in Iowa, I venture to say 46.25 / 400 in a controlled state and a 48-2 SP ( in first of two 3 set series ), very nice work Mr. Eaton. Keep it smart, controlled and senseable, and the Moscow WC will be this years high water mark. The decathlon is A LOT MORE than simply 10 events.

One of the post-race highlights of the Meet for Canadians was the performance of Adam Palamar in the 1500 metres. Adam placed 7th in a time of 3:38.92, which broke the 21-year old Canadian Junior Record held by Kevin Sullivan, and ranks him in the 2013 World Junior Top Ten.
Adam is an Ottawa native, and just finished his first year at Tulsa.

According to the harryjerome.com website's blog, Solomon ran "about 46" for the 400. Solomon said he took the lead from the pacemaker at 300 and went too fast. He said he "rigged up" last 50. Even if he was 47.0 at 400, that's 26.3 for the last 200. Gray's record is 1:12.81, not an easy target. I believe Lee Evans ran 1:14.3 back in '68, but the ATFS annual only goes four deep.

Unofficial splits for Solomon = 22.4/200, 34.3/300, 46.6/400. The rabbit went out very fast, was ahead of Solomon @ 200 and 300, then started to slow, but didn't get off the track, Solomon went by him at about 350.

Thanks. Are those for the rabbit or Solomon? If Solomon, he ran 34.3, 39.0. On the jerome website, Solomon said he screwed up the whole plan by being too aggressive.

Those are the splits I took for Solomon. Yes, he was very aggressive, as was Loxsom also, only a couple of tenths back of Solomon @ 200/300/400. The race is up on Flotrack, by the way.
I think with better pacing (by the rabbit and Solomon), not having to run around the rabbit, not having to run 2 bends into the breeze, and perhaps more competitive pressure in the last 200, he's in World Record territory.

^ Agree.

If Solomon says he "rigged up," then he did. All I can say from watching him is that he looked really impressive. He's got the right coach, and Gray has the right student. :)
