Finally, it’s time to head outdoors, where the Olympic season will begin to gear up in earnest.

Multi’s WRs Lead HOT World Championships

It’s a bit ironic that today is “Selection Sunday” for the NCAA basketball tournament, because this weekend of track and field had the kind of wall to wall action associated with the NCAA Tournament. Between the NCAA & World Indoor Championships; Internet feeds; major time zone differences; and early outdoor track meets; I’ve been watching almost non-stop track and field from Friday afternoon until just a bit ago here on Sunday morning!

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...
