Postby Marlow » Thu Jan 03, 2013 6:31 pm

Perusing the US Men’s Lists (eTN 01 ’13), some highs and lows:

Highs

100 – 3 under 9.80
800 – 6 sub-1:45, 11 sub-1:46
1500 – 7 (!) sub-3:35, 12 sub-3:36!
Steeple – 5 sub-8:22
5000 – 10 sub-13:21
10000 – 8 sub-27:45
Mar – 10 sub 2:12
110H – 8 sub-13.20
SP – 9 over 68’
HT – 7 over 240’

All the distances are up in depth.

Lows

200 – only 1 sub-20
400 – only 2 sub-44.50
400H – only 4 sub-48.80
HJ – 5 over 7-6
PV – only 1 (!) over 19’, 4 over 18’6 (!)
LJ – best at 27-4
TJ – only 4 over 55’
DT – best at 214’9
JT – best at 27-5, only 9 over 250’

ALL the jumps were mediocre in depth.

So sad. With the "A" moving to 66m (216'6") the US is looking at >3 male discus throwers in Moscow unless they all go to Hawaii; and even then maybe not.

Oh, and I just remembered that the 'American' bPV HSR is now held by a Canadian - oh, the humanity! :cry:

Seems like the decathlon was probably a "high".

Not at all. After our big two, it was pretty grim, depth-wise - hence our lack of a third OG team-member).
