You're right! I know it's early, it's possible that can have another contender for the USA 4x100 relay.
She'll probably need to PR(7.11) to be a serious threat to crack that nut, especially if Hooker is back at 100%. Still, a fine personal performance, especially right off the bat. I'll be interested to see how her 200 goes in a couple weeks.
If the Jan 5 results are any indication there won't be wind readings. However, at 12:51 PM(60m was scheduled for 12:30) the temperature was 53 degrees, with variable(mainly north) winds at 6 MPH(+2.6mps). CSNU track straightaway is oriented north/south.

And the 2.6mps wind is the speed 10 meters up from the ground at a location that does not have buildings or other obstructions in the vicinity. If this was the situation in the area then it would not be very likely that the wind was over the allowable level.
As a note, about 10 years ago they readjusted the wind-chill formula. The biggest reason that they did so was because the experiments used for the analysis used the wind speed at the body (sacks of water?) in question, not at 10m up, which is where the reading was taken. Thus, they had to translate it so that the speed at the body was, say, 5mps, the speed 10m up was approximately 7mps. This difference (speed at ground level, or one meter) is substantially lower than the wind speed measured by the official weather stations. People calculating the effect of wind on the runners at Boston two years ago made the mistake of using the listed wind reading without adjusting for the slowing that occurs at ground level in an area with lots of houses and (mainly leafless) trees.
Which means outdoors, which means knowing what was up with the wind could be signfiicant in assessing just where she really is.
I'm confused is this actually an outdoors meet? I didn't even know there were any outdoor meets in North America until Spring. I have only heard of meets in Australia, Jamaica, and other countries in the Southern Hemisphere during our winter.
Minsk, Jan 17 - Lynsha 7.50 60mH Wonder if he'll do this in non-BLR competition? Bucharest, Jan 18 - Donisan 2.30m HJ, Oprea 16.80m TJ Moscow, Jan 18 - Klishina 6.69m LJ Krasnador, Jan 19 - Kucherenko 7.00m (6.89m and 6.92m)

North America's a big place, with lots of different weather. Collegians and pros rarely compete outdoors, but the high school season in the sun belt is in full swing by the time March comes around.
California only has one indoor track, and it's used for one meet in Fresno in February. Other than that, anything in California at any time of year is outdoors.
Mutaz Barshim has been busy in Sweden lately. 2.30 last week and 2.33 (7-6 3/4) yesterday in Vaxsjo.
In Udine, northern Italy Alessia Trost jumped a world leading 1.98 improving her PB with 6cms. That makes her third highest Italian of all time behind Di Martino and Simeoni. Trost is a former World Youth and World Junior champ and she is now a first year international senior. She's tall, 6-2 and has improved her technique a good del since winning in Bressanone in 2009.

At Indiana Relays tonight
I was there, officiating the HJ, and his 2.29 clearance was a monster. Looked like he lost his edge a bit at 2.32 but he's a year stronger and getting better. He told me he's definitely hitting the Euro circuit this summer.
What? no comment here on the Rupp 3.50 and bits in the mile last night. Its all over a certain running Forum; its 1.30 pm, i believe in the east and a bit earlier in central USA. A great run so early in the year; he will need to be careful not to burn out for the later trials to come this summer. Or is comment tucked away some where that I have missed.
