Our topics today:

(Reviewing Sunday, June 23)

1. 2016 Olympic bronze medalist, 2017, 2019 WC gold medalist Sam Kendricks called on his superpowers to go 5.92m, a meet record, in what he called excellent conditions, to take gold and lead the team to Paris 2024! Chris Nilson was silver at 5.87m, and Jacob Wooten was bronze at 5.87. All have the Olympic standards.

3. In an absolutely incredible Women’s 400m, Kendall Ellis won the 400m in 49.46m, a PB, showing all of her promise. In silver, Aaliyah Butler ran a PB of 49.71 and in bronze, Alexis Holmes ran a 49.78 PB.

4. An exciting Men’s steeplechase, where generations of steeplers changed, with Kenneth Rooks taking the gold in 8:21.92 and Matthew Wilkinson, 8:23.00, and James Corrigan in bronze in 8.26.78. None have the Olympic standard, but Rooks and Wilkinson rankings should get them to Paris.

5. In an incredible ending to day 3, Noah Lyles took gold in the Men’s 100 meters, in a PB equalling 9.83. Kenny Bednarek ran 9.87 for a new PB in silver and Fred Kerley took bronze in 9.88 SB in third. Christian Coleman had the best start, but was caught first by Bednarek and Kerley, then Lyles sent by the field!
