    • In these days of weird and wacky names it's pleasing to see some decidely old-school names in the NCAA like Trevor Stewart and, in the 400H, Norman Grimes.

          • Dang... First time I've seen Sani Brown run since his sprint double gold at the World Junior's in 2015 as a 16 year old phenom... Dude has grown in those years!

            • Thought they might fill the 50 minutes until the 4x4 with field event action but no, they're reshowing races from earlier in the evening! Does ESPN hate field events even more than the BBC?

                You sound surprised by this totally unsurprising turn of events.

                  LOL. Yes, I've seen enough ESPN streams over the last few years to know that they suck a bit at athletics coverage.

                  • Surprise defeat for Mondo Duplantis at NCAA by Chris Nilsen - 5.95 to 5.80.

                    • Eritrea, Spain & Australia the 1-2-3 in the first women's track final at NCAAs, the 10,000. Weini Kelati was the hot favourite going in and delivered but she was pushed hard at the end by the surprise 2nd-placer Carmela Cardama Baez.

                      Even at gone 9pm it was really, really hot out there! These women were sweating, sorry perspiring, buckets after just a few laps.

                      • Nigerian and Texas Tech University's Divine Oduduru continues to amaze... Just now completed an incredible 100m/200m double. 40 minutes earlier he ran 9.86 (+0.8 m/s) to win the collegiate 100m title, then in the last few minutes, stormed around the 200m in 19.73 (+0.8 m/s), lowering the national record he set in April and going 2nd all time on the NCAA 200m all time list behind Walter Dix (19.69 in 2007). He also now sits with the 3rd best clocking this year behind Micheal Norman (19.70) and Noah Lyles (19.72) following their amazing Rome Diamond League race on Thursday night.

                        Behind Odururu, Oregon University's Cravon Gillespie, in his final year as a student, also went under 20 seconds for the first time, running a PB of 19.93. In third place, Japanese sprint phenom Hakim Sani Brown set a new personal best of 20.08, the 2nd fastest 200m by a Japanese man behind Shingo Shetsugu's 16 year old national record (20.03).
                        In fact, Gillespie and Sani Brown like Odururu had also competed in the 100m final and finished in the same positions behind the Nigerian sprinter, and both set new personal bests as well. Gillespie finishing with a 9.93 clocking and Hani Brown lowering his own recently set national record to 9.97... Incredible stuff in the NCAA's!

                        • More incredible results from Austin...

                          One of the oldest collegiate records still on the books (in fact it was the former world record at the time it was set), Renaldo Nehemiah's 13.00 clocking in the 110m hurdles that has just become 40 years old on the 5th of June, was finally broken earlier today by Grant Holloway the Florida University star who becomes the first student athlete to go sub 13 seconds, with an 12.98 (+0.8 m/s) timing. He was chased all the way by his rival Daniel James from the University of Kentucky who ended up equaling the old record with 13.00.

                          And just moments ago Holloway showed his versatility, anchoring the 4 x 400m team and dragging them from 4th to 2nd place on the home straight, his leg clocked at a 43.68!

                            Today’s the day!

                            Except that it isn’t. He’s not on the start list.

                            We ought to ban his name from the forum. What might have been will almost certainly never be.

                              only the unmentionable American,Gatlin, has run a single day double better than Divine but since ther former was a guy who should never have been on the track we can wholeheartedly congratulate Oduduru on his world best one day sprint double; quite a character as well having seen his interview.
                              What a night for sprinters; Holloway is turning pro and will probably shake up the short hurdlesorder,

                                What?!

                                Goddamn it Okoye!

                                I wanted him to launch the disc over 65 meters and show everyone out there doubting (like me!) that he's still the best discus thrower we've got.
