After the races, runners ran across the road to cool down in the ocean. Thirty mainland high schools are expected to run in this year's Iolani, twice as many as last year. Last year's winners were Ruth Graham, Carl Moe, Montgomery CA girls, and Eisenhower WA boys. The University of Hawaii Big Wave Invitational for college teams will run in conjunction with the high school meet. a DyeStat on-site meet

Josh Fryman
Kentuckian sweeps indoor and outdoor shot put titles,
and doubles in discus at AOC Raleigh

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.
