World Championships webcast
deal gets even better

The WCSN webcast (see www.wcsn.com) for the World Championships in Helsinki will cost only $4.95 (instead of the previously announced $14.95) for the entire meet, plus bonus coverage of Bislett Games.

The new webcast service will include start to finish live coverage (58 hours in all) of the IAAF World Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Helsinki Finland August 6-14. Every heat will be shown live and every event will be archived an hour after the event for later retrieval by subscribers. Viewers will need broadband internet access with at least 350 kb per second bandwidth. In addition to the webcast, there will be a daily 1-hour highlight show on PAX and Comcast Sports. In a free preview of the new technology, the Bislett Games in Oslo Norway July 29 will be webcast. This will be the first Bislett Games in Oslo's newly renovated stadium, and it will feature US runners such as Bernard Lagat, Alan Webb, Galen Rupp, and Adam Goucher.

The new coverage is a cooperative effort between the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), USA Track & Field (USATF), the World Championships Sports Network (WCSN), and Dentsu Inc. USATF CEO Craig Masback said, "This is a test for those who have been yearning for more coverage of elite track and field."

Stat of the Week
All time top 100 miles grouped by meet
John Sullivan is a track nut who can't get enough track stats. He cranks out lists for his own amusement -- and now he can amuse you as well. This week, All Time top 100 high school miles grouped by meet. Two thirds of the boys top 100 were run in post season meets, but more than half of the girls were run in-season. Cutoff for all time top 100 ranking is 4:07.3 for boys and 4:48.85 for girls.

Texas Sweeps GHAC Relays
Cinco Ranch Katy boys, A&M Consolidated girls
win first online high school track meet
Cinco Ranch added the GHAC crown to their second straight Texas 5A championship. They were led by the stellar trio of Scott Sellers (HJ), Queito Teasley (LJ) and Trevor Gerland (110H).
A&M Consolidated's strength is in distance (Jocelyn Gardner) and throws (Candis Kelley). Those events are undervalued in the sprint-centric Texas state meet scoring system, but they played well in the GHAC Relays, which test the spectrum of skills in track and field. MORE
