WOW! Talk about a series of outstanding meets/marks. This weekend has been HOT! New York, Fayetteville, Dusseldorf, Albuquerque, Donetsk – great results have been pouring in from all over the globe. Initially I thought that the World Indoor Championships would be “down” with this year with most athletes preparing for the Games in August Read More...

Two Big Meets This Weekend

It’s not often that I can make that statement about U.S. meets, but this is one of those rare occasions as both the Millrose Games AND the USATF Classic are on tap. Ironically both meets are getting “makeovers” this year. The Millrose Games will be taking up shop in the Armory for the first time moving from Madison Square Garden Read More...

While times and distances certainly have meaning, sometimes it’s how those results are derived that tell a completely different story. Such is the case with this weekend’s New Balance meet in Boston Read More...

It’s Super Bowl weekend and football and food are on most people’s minds. The track world seems to have had that in mind when scheduling meets, because the slate was rather sparse. Even so there were still some outstanding performances on the small ovals this weekend. It’s only the first weekend in February, but the field events are already on fire this year, and the event that is leading the way is the women’s pole vault Read More...

The indoor season really got rocking last weekend, and looks to pick up stream with the World Indoor Championships just a tad over a month away (Mar 9-11). One of the next steps towards Istanbul is this weekend’s New Balance Indoor Grand Prix in Boston.
