    Yeah, Browning will break 10.00 this year for sure. He just needs the right conditions and someone to really push him

    The 200 is coming up in the West Coast Classic we have Volpe, Kratz, Bouchereau running. I hope Bouchereau can get a double.

    Zachary Jewell won the 200 meters today in a time of 20.84 +0.8 wind. Very nice job by Zach and he will be running again tommorow in the 100m meters.

    Jackson Webb won a 100 meters today but it was a very slow race into a negative wind. Regardless It's always good to see Webb continue to win. I pretty sure he has only lost once in the 100 meters since the season started.

    Jenna Prandinni came in 4th running a 11.22. Hanah Cunliffe didn't make the final.

    Zachary Jewell won the 100 meters today running a windy 10.07! Yes the wind was 3.7 so it won't count as a legal p.b. but he won the race very easily. When you run that fast you have to be able to
    have an incredibly fast stride turnover and he proved that he is ready to run faster times. Zach Jewell has had an amazing year. He did this after winning the 200 meters yesterday and helping the 4 x 100 Relay Team
    also take first place earlier today. So his 10.07 was his 3rd race in 2 days.

    WL agreed your legs have to have the ability to turn over that fast. I think he will be knocking on the 10 second barrier by seasons end if the conditions align for him.

    Bingtan Su with a sub 10 this weekend in China into a negative wind.
    I think he will make the Olympic 100m final.

    Charlie Dobson, 21, of Britain, ran a 45.51 400m this weekend.
    Good time for early in the (European) season.

    Dobson is a versatile sprinter like Matthew Boling, with good times in the short and long sprints.
    I would like him to continue to run the 100m and 200m to see how much he can progress there.
    But perhaps he feels there is a chance he can make the Olympic team as part of the 4 x 400m relay.

    I see Charlie doesn't run too many 100s/200s but did a 10.12/100 (+2.5) last December - and a negative wind 20.53/200m in 2018 aged 18 in Finland.
    Plenty of speed then to go with his endurance. I'd like to see him in the Com Games if they're held in 2022

    Hey mastermulti. Can you please tell me when Hana Basic and Jack Hale will compete again in Australia? Hoping they can meet the Olympic Standard Times necessary for the individual invite to the olympics.
    Hana Basic has an excellent chance with Hale not as good but I'm hoping and rooting for both of them.

    Apparently this is only Dobson's 2nd ever 400m race. That makes his time even more impressive, and shows that he has a lot of potential in this event.
    Wouldn't be surprised if he goes sub 45 this year.

    I honestly don't know what will be organised but something will happen - Hana was talking of future chances to qualify. I haven't heard about any format to make it happen but I'll keep watching out and let the forum know if I spot anything

    I know if runners are chasing an A standard to make a world level team many can form their own invitational time trial. Many times these are at local universities or track clubs and you need FAT timing and accredited officials.

    I have read about a few world class athletes enter all comers meets and they brought these requirements to the meet to get these times or distance.

    I look at these meets overseas and it seems everyone in the northern hemisphere has so many choices for competition right now .... and against decent athletes - I guess I'll admit to worrying whether our sprinters will get the chance to compete with those same opportunities

    I don't like what the coach is doing at Georgia with Matthew Boling. We are in an Olympic Year and they have him in the long jump on Friday Night and then the 400 meters on Saturday. The kid needs to be
    in the 100 and 200 meters. Not these other events. How can they do this to a kid with once in a lifetime talent? He will never win a Olympic Medal in either the Long Jump or the 400 meters with him being
    no where near the world class levels needed to make the medal stand. He can't even win most of the long jump contests in college and he hasn't run the 400 in a long time. Yes he has talent in these two disciplines but not the talent
    he has over 100 and 200 meters. Stop this madness. Not to mention he is gonna eventually hurt his body. If you want to be the best you must focus on 1 or 2 events. Not 4 or 5. This is insanity!!

    WL, we all agree that Boiling should not be doing the LJ, problem is it is his favorite event, so I would surmise it is Boiling choosing to do the LJ. Personally I think he has the ability to do extremely well in the 400m(mid 44's) but his 100/200m times are so close to being elite it is a conundrum of sorts. We all know what we would want him to choose but we don't really know what he wants aside from loving the LJ.

    Yes in the past he has said he loves the long jump. Well the most recent interview from a few months ago he was asking his ultimate dream. It was to be like Jesse Owens and Carl Lewis as the only Olympic Athlete to ever win gold medals in the
    100, 200 and the long jump at the same Olympics. No mention of the 400 here. Also he has to face reality. His long jump while very good is not near the elite level yet. Even his 400 meters is not where he would need to be to even make a medal
    stand. We have guys running low 44's already and they are not even close to peak condition. It will probably take a high 43 second time to win gold or around 44 seconds flat. Even with the long jump, he needs to increase his 100 meters speed along
    with working on his form to jump alot farther. Laird is doing things right. He has already broken his 100 and 200 meters personal bests outdoors. LSU knows what to do with elite talent. Georgia doesn't have a clue.

    Matthew Boling won the LJ today - 25ft - 2-3/4in.
    Jenna Prandini won the 200m at the Texas Invitational - 22.22 (2.1w). Very good time.
    Hannah Cunliffe won the 100m at the N. Florida Invitational - 11.07. Also a very good time.
    Abby Steiner did not participate today at the Kentucky Invitational. I wonder if she is injured.
    13.48 for Trey Cunningham of Florida State in the 110m hurdles.

    I am withholding judgement about Boling's coaches and training until I see how he does in the 400m tomorrow.
    Let's remember that his entire high school career he trained for the 400m and LJ, not the 100m and 200m; and yet he still was the fastest short sprinter in the country.

    I've become a believer that the strength gained from training for the 400m, actually helped him in the short sprints. If you recall, he was always pulling away at the end of his 100m and 200m races, while the other kids were slowing down. Similarly, I believe it is the 'strength' that Dafne Schippers and Karsten Warholm developed while training for the heptathlon and decathlon, that helped propel them to the top of their sprint events. So maybe the 400m training is good for Boling.

    Another thing to remember.... six 400m runners will probably go to the Olympics (due to the relay). Maybe four 100m runners will go. And probably three 200m runners.
    As of today, I don't think Boling can make the Olympic team in the 100m. Right now the 200m and possibly the 400m, are his best chances.
    But also remember, the Georgia coaches are probably more concerned about him scoring points for the team, than about training him for the Olympics.

    Boling came 2nd in the 400m by 1/100th of a second to his Georgia teammate.
    His time was 45.87.
    So right now, Boling is pretty good in 4 events, and only very good in one event - the 200m.
    Frankly, he was better in high school than he is at this moment in time. But I do believe he can be exceptional in whatever event he chooses.
    However, given the nature of college track and trying to score as many points as possible for the team, he may continue to be a jack-of-all-trades, and a master of none for awhile.
    We'll see.
