This deserves starting a new topic. Link on front page.

w60h - Brianna Rollins 7.78

NCAA record. Youngest ever to go sub-7.80 (according to USTFCCCA tweet). And all that in January.

Very impressive, and she did it despite all the recent distractions due to her coach being let go.... I guess she'll be the cream of the crop of collegiate hurdlers this year with Christina Manning gone... Being able to train with professional hurdlers like Kristi Castlin and Queen Harrison has probably been beneficial for her too.

I assume Castlin and Harrison might be leaving Clemson now to follow Coach Johnson though...

Impressive double for Rollins' sophomore teammate Dezerea Bryant in the same meet too. 7.19 60m and 23.52 200m. Her 23.52 was converted to 23.16 by Direct Athletics/TFRRS for purposes of rankings, due to a track size venue conversion.

That's possible, but it doesn't always work out that way.
