NCAA Division 1 Championships 6-9 June

Postby trevorp » Thu Jun 07, 2012 1:23 am

This event is now taking place at Drake, Des Moines, Iowa. I've not been able to find a live stream, but as it takes place during our night many of us would probably not be able to watch anyway.

Amazing standards as usual: the heats of the m400 took place earlier and a time of 45.28 failed to make the final.

Not to mention the crazy standards in the mens 100m with Adams beating his PB by .23 and running 9.96 and the top 8 finish at 10.11

Alaka never got a look, in with 10.34 in 21 st position.

Disappointment also for Lorraine Ugen who could manage only 11.60 to finish 22nd of 24. Let's hope she does better in LJ.
Ese Okoro also failed to make the final but equalled her PB of 57.61 (which she set in Des Moines in April!)

The heats results for the 1 and 400m mens and womens are awesome, but field eventers are some way behind the sprinters
is it the glory of the blue ribband events that draws athletes to these the easiest of events, or the technical difficulty and long time required to master them that puts them off of learning field events?

Would it prove productive to offer bigger incentives for the field eventers?

There is a stream of the champs available on Saturday. I have posted it in the Online section.

Saturday now has a packed overlap of athletics starting with the NCAA on to Lille and then to New York :D

The sprints have always been the best events. Many of the field events are not that good and when i was over thre, there were many complaints about all americans places been achieved by non americans in the hammer event one year! The field events vary in quality as do some of the distance races but running fromA-B in under a minutes work has always been their strong points

Kimberlyn Duncan ran 22.19 WL in the semi-final.

Day 2 has not been a good one for the Brits: Lorraine Ugen fouled out in LJ; Amy Harris 6.02w finished 19th.
m200 James Alaka ran 21.24 to finish 24 of 24.
