    He looks legit, funny I dont remember seeing any good Asian athletes unless it was gymnastics, diving, recreational sports typed deal in past olympics. Now they are everywhere, I think alot of it is now red meat and potatoes. Those guys were eating fish and bugs 30 years ago.

    Take a look around -- Indians and East Asians with their bottomless pool of potential immigrants have been imported by the many millions in the past 15 years, including by Trump, as the system is now acknowledging by showing them in its commercials. Meantime the more astute of the deplorables continue to be 20 years behind the times, battling the lower class Mexicans while ignoring the takeover of Big Tech by Asians, our friendly censors and doctors. And then there's those still living in 1960, seeing everything in black and white and Black vs. White, generations behind the actual zeitgeist.

    China was a fairly poor country 30 yrs ago, and sports weren't really part of the culture. But now they have money and more time for sports. And hosting the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, had China make a big push in all sports. Plus they have a billion people, so there's bound to be some exceptional athletes in that giant population of people.

    Well the world better get ready because even though they are a communist nation, they are the new super power taking over for the U.S.A. I hate saying this but it's the truth. They will have the first digital currency(Digital Yuan) available to all of the
    athletes of the world at the 2022 Winter Olympics. The Digital Yuan will be the new world cryptocurrency. They are taking over everything. I hate how they treat the people but they are here to stay.

    Su Bingtian is an elite sprinter at the top of the food chain. He is alot more likeable than many of the brash sprinters we have seen over the years. I like rooting for him and he is so amazingly talented! I see no reason why he won't run in the high 9.80's in the olympics 100 meters finals. I would be shocked if he wasn't on the medal stand.

    Well, obviously I want our guys to win, and think this will be a great season for them (Boling, Quinn, Tortu, etc.), but I will take Su over the cocky black athletes any day of the week. I think seeing him do well is positive as it breaks the stereotype that only blacks can do well in the sprints, and it reveals the value of hard work and confidence.

    Also, I am less worried about the Chinese than the elite tribe who really runs this country and wants whites genocided. The Chinese don't run banking, education, pornography, and 99 percent of media in America. They are not censoring us.

    Indeed, they have more than 4 times the population of the U.S. (1.45 billion) and many are moving into middle class now - when you're not spending all day in the fields that leaves time to enjoy and do other things. Plus, with athletes like the one time WR holder for 100H Liu Xiang and now Su Bingtian, there are role models who prove China can compete at a world standard.
    I expect huge inroads by them in coming years

    I agree with the above posts. While we’re sitting over here worrying about celebrating trans athletes, China is getting down to business and producing tons of new talent. If China puts enough effort in they could probably have 20 Bingtian Su’s in about 10 years running 9.7s

    Great win for Boling in the Men’s 200m. He ran 20.19 with bad form at the end.

    Ruta Lasmane gets third in the women’s TJ. 14.15 for the Latvian. She is only a freshman. The first and second are senior class.
    Trey Cunningham with an awful (0.190) start to get third in 7.53s. He was -0.037 behind the average start time for this final which would have him at 7.49s and a win.
    Cole Hocker Oregon doubles in the mile/3000m to win both easily.
    Hannah Cunliffe lost her high altitude 60m record of 7.07, a black Oregon runner gets 7.05s.

    I was hoping she would break the record but glad that Steiner is the national champion.

    Can you guys imagine if Boling and Steiner had kids? Wow would they be fast! It's been a great weekend outside of a few upsets.

    I'm so excited for the outdoor season but we have to wait till May. It's gonna be a hot olympic summer! Fireworks for sure.

    Another great run from Abby Steiner. She is co-holder of the record at 22.38. With her focus and desire she is becoming a female version of Pietro Menna.

    Yeah, WL that would be interesting if those two got together. However, as Boling has shown, great sprinters don't have to have parents with the genes. Neither of Boling's parents were great or fast athletes. His mother, I think competed in a sport, but not to the degree that their son has.
    Boling has shown that he has the talent, but he has worked very hard and hates to lose. These traits could take him a long way.
    It says a lot about his courage/character to have made a mistake two weeks ago and then come back stronger and win the national championship.

    to follow up on Abby Steiner’s performance, as mentioned her 22.38 ties the collegiate record, set a National Championship meet record, won the national title, and equals the 5th-fastest female indoor 200m ever.

    Boling, with his 20.19, also has the 5th-fastest EVER indoor 200m, as well as setting the collegiate and National Championship meet record. (additionally, the second-place finisher Laird has the 6th-fastest-ever indoor deuce.)

    the performances that Steiner and Boling put on today were awesome to see! and to think those efforts are deemed physically impossible, since it’s a well-known “fact” that White athletes can’t run fast ...

    Yeah the media, scouts, and the coaching staffs around the U.S.S.A. must hate it as it goes against the communist narrative. We must hold these crackers down and keep them in their place. We just can't let whites have pride
    in their athletics, history, traditions and culture. This was an amazing day.

    For those of you who don't think Boling and Steiner belong in the Olympics I will put it into another perspective for you casual fans out there.

    The time run by Matthew Boling equaled the talented olympian Wallace Spearmon. While Steiners time was faster than the great Allyson Felix ran in college and it's not even close. So they are doing what only olympians
    can do at the college level. This is amazing but we here at this board knew this was possible while the racist stereotypes said it wasn't. Love seeing them have to deal with it!

    Agreed.

    Josh Azzopardi improved his 200m running a 20.95 (0.2+) yesterday. With Browning's speed he should be able to run <21 second 200m at will.

    Connor Diffey won the QLD state 200m championship in 20.84 seconds smashing his previous best time of 21.08. A 193cm athlete with excellent speed endurance considering his best 100m is 10.71!

    The finish of Steiners 200m was abit strange considering the other sprinter was very close, both went through finish line totally upright, if she leaned forward hard at the line Steiner would have broken the record. Boiling wins looking like a flailing ragamuffin the last 30m or so. This kid must have Viking blood cuz he fought tooth and nail for that victory. For once the announcers got it right...he is the Real Deal.

    Two things about the Boling race. To me it looked like Boling almost ran into Laird's lane in the turn and it through him off balance trying to stay in his lane thus altering his form. Also it looked as though Laird went into Boling's lane in the last 10-20 meters. Laird could've been DQ'd Thoughts? Anyone?
    If the former is true, he could have ran an even faster time.

    I know we don't discuss NCAA Division 2 Track & Field much but I wanted to give this kid some credit. Trevor Bassitt medaled in both the 60 meters and the 200 meters. He won the 200 meters in a very good time of 20.48!

    Birmingham -AL- (United States), 11-13.3.2021 -NCAA Division 2 Championships-

    INDOOR

    Men

    60m (13) 1 Benjamin Azamati (gha) 6.60; 2 Mason Phillips 6.73; 3 Trevor Bassitt 6.76

    Boling struggles mightily with the sharp turns running indoors. if i understand things correctly, he hadn’t run indoors until college, and with his long stride it is still a very difficult experience for him and one that he’s still very much learning to handle.

    it is my opinion that Boling will DESTROY the competition outdoors in the 200, as well as set new PBs in the 100m and 400m this summer because of the improvements he’s made with his strength training and start over the past year+. Steiner is a question mark to me outdoors, because while her unusual arm swing/shoulder movement helps her run a tight turn indoors, i don’t know if she can convert to a more conventional power position to run outdoors and thus increase her speed accordingly.

    as for your question about Laird being DQed: stepping out of bounds to an outside lane actually increases the distance you run, so (to my knowledge) that is allowed UNLESS you interfere with another runner’s progress. stepping out of bounds to an inside lane reduces the distance you run, so it’s an automatic DQ because it gives an unfair advantage to the runner who does it.
