Newburgh NY sr Elzie Coleman 33.28 300m, who broke Billy Reed's national 400 meter record a week ago, came close to his 300 meter record (33.09) today. Coleman moved into US#3 all time a tick behind Anthony Ewers 33.27 in 1999.

Despite strained groin/compromised training, New Yorker
Coleman nearly claims another of William Reed's records!

by Rich Gonzalez on DyeStatCal

-- "It must be the hallways -- there's something there!"
            That's the light-hearted response Newburgh HS senior Elzie Coleman offered up when asked to explain his rocket-like times over the last two weekends, that despite horrid weather conditions having forced the New York area dasher and his teammates to carry out their speedwork along building hallways. But Coleman's most recent rush-for-our-record-book performance at the Armory was only one portion of an a near-magical weekend on the national indoor calendar, however, as Saratoga Springs' (NY) fathomed distance program came tantalizingly close to the national indoor distance medley relay record at the Yale Classic while Central Catholic's (OR) Galen Rupp garnered the Friday-night spotlight during a much-anticipated men's open mile sojourn in Arkansas.
            Despite the frigid temperatures snaring the Northeast, Coleman has been doing nothing but scorching the track indoors, with last weekend's national record 46.58 clocking at the Hispanic Games almost paralleled this weekend by his 33.28 sizzler over 300 meters (#3 all-time prep indoors) at the Stanner Games. Both meets came in the Armory.
             Making the most recent feat even more impressive was the fact it was achieved while nursing a pulled groin, an ailment that surfaced during qualifying.
            "I felt it pull in the trials," said the soft-spoken 18-year-old. "Then every time I came off the curve, I felt it."
            Good fortune was on his side, however, as Coleman was never seriously challenged in the final, and carried no burden of pressure going in.
            "He had no one honestly to push him," Coleman's coach, Malcolm Burks, said. "I had him at 20.5 easy at 200. He tightened a little at the end, but he was fine. ... Beforehand, he asked me what he needed to do to break the record. I told him not to worry about the record. Just go out there and have fun, and let the record come eventually."
            Such encouragement has not gone unnoticed by Coleman: "That's a real big help, keeping any pressure off. If I go out there to have fun, I'm sure I'll be fine."
            Coleman returns to the scene of his most forgettable episode next weekend, when he and his Newburgh teammates trek to the Armory for the New Balance Games, a meet in which Coleman suffered a serious asthma attack last year.
            "That attack really set me back for a while," Coleman admitted. "After that race, I always had fear. I was scared every time I went out there for a 400 that it would happen again. ... Coach just told me I've got to suck it up and go out there like a man, and that thinking has helped me. I don't worry about it anymore."
            Coleman will run in the open 400 and the 4x400 relay at the Armory, seeking a fun time and some good workouts leading up to it.
            "We had school cancelled Thursday and Friday," Coleman noted. "We've been in halfways, and we can't get any real 400-meter workouts. Every time we speed up, we have to slow down and make a turn."
            Coleman, as you can tell, isn't much into slowing down these days.
