Since my recent travel arrangement to the Home Depot meet has been an experience from hell and has left me stranded in an airport for the second time in 3 days (this time delaying my arrival in BTR by 14 hours!!!) I figured I'd take advantage of the free wireless internet in LAX to comment on what I saw at the meet:
1. Marion looks pretty good…..much better than at Penn and infinitely better than at Mt. Sac. Her LJ actually looks pretty decent and Dan has made some nice adjustments to her approach which seem to have helped.
2. Mo Greene looks really good. He seems to be "back" and blistered a decent 100m field in 9.86 (albiet wind-aided).
3. Christian Cantwell put together the best shot put series in the history of the sport topping out with #9 all-time 73'4". He's going to be tough to beat for a very long time.
4. Alan Webb finally appears to be fulfilling all the promise he showed in HS. He ran a great mile and easily ran away from a decent field to post an Olympic "A" mark.
