Here's one of the 23.15 race in its entirety, although it's not quite television quality:

thanks blues for the entire race

the partial race for 23.15 took me a while to find that

this one is far better though

thanks again

That 23.15 was not that far clear of second. Also, both the race videos show a good track but only four and three lanes and without the large banking of places like Fayetteville. Thus, Lane 6 at one of those tracks and this quality of running might get her to 23-flat; chasing a 22.8 runner might push her just a little more. We are getting towards a 19.98 16-year old thing [not there yet, but this is very good].

you care correct duncan has a faster time than 23.15


22.72
but duncan too has a 23.15
run at texas am

so maybe we should compare ekelund to usa hs girls

Deajah Stevens (Cardozo, Oakland Gardens, NY) has 24.38 on t&f news usa best

over a second behind ekelund, who at 15 is a frosh????

stevens is a senior

both girls compete against pros fairly competently

To compare, the US high school class records for 200 indoors are:

Frosh (age 14-15) is 23.55
Soph (age 15-16) is 23.43
Junior (age 16-17) is 23.26.

for the euro indoors in gotborg

http://www.iaaf.org/records/toplists/sp ... enior/2013

60 meters she'd be hard to get to the finals


but for 200

http://www.iaaf.org/records/toplists/sp ... enior/2013

she is 4th europen on lst

she needs to mature physically for the 60, but 200 is her sweet splot
