How odd. Since Hardee ultimately ran 7.73 in the open HH.

Add the 7.73 to his other events and a 2:48 1000 and Hardee scores a PR 6247, winning the competition by 15 points (if Nixon were to run no faster).
My guess is that he ran the open hurdles instead of the Hept hurdles because the 1000 didn't fit into his training plans and he didn't want to finish 6 events with a clear shot at the title and then not run it.
