Post-Season Pix Pages - with the rush of big meets and great performances, we piled up a huge backlog of action photos to process from Golden West, AOC Raleigh, Golden South., and USA Nationals. Here are the latest pix pages uploaded:

  • AOC throws: Maysville KY senior Josh Fryman, who crashed into the national spotlight with his last-throw win of the Nike Indoor shotput in March, swept both shot and discus at the adidas Outdoor Championships.
  • AOC - Ted Ginn: Brightest of the new stars at AOC Raleigh was Glenville OH jr Theodore Ginn, anchoring a national record 800 SMR and "upsetting" US#1 and US#2 in the 110m hurdles.

Allyson Felix's world junior record may not be ratified - When Allyson Felix won the Mexico City Grand Prix 200m in May in 22.11, it was reported all over the world as a new world junior record (under 20). Now, it appears that her brilliant performance may not count as an IAAF world record because there was no drug testing at the meet. Doug Speck reports on DyeStatCal

Post Season Best Marks - There have been hundreds of performances in the post season meets that qualify for DyeStat Elite top 100 national rankings. Age group meets will be reported separately.

Vin Lananna leaves Stanford - Stanford University track and cross country coach Vin Lananna, who has recruited so many high school distance runners to Palo Alto, is leaving Stanford after 11 years to become athletic director and professor of physical education at Oberlin College in Ohio.
