adidas Track Classic, Complete Results by IAAF.org, Event by Event Commentary by Larry Eder

| 0 Comments

In our sports, we need places where we can celebrate the sport. Most of the time we call them track meets, athletics meets. I call them positive sanctuaries. These are the places I go to watch our sport, celebrate our sport. It is hard for me when I do not see the stands completely full. It is like the athletes, coaches and fans know the truth-our sport is exciting, our sport is about watching our heroes run, jump and throw. And competed they did in the adidas Track Classic.

This was the first years since 2004 I have missed adidas Track Classic, so I had to watch it over ESPN2. I twittered away on what I saw over the tube, but it took most of last night to get my notes from the meet, from friends who were my eyes.

I have added the complete results and my observations, along with quotes on the meet, courtesy of our friends at USATF. So, here we go!

The adidas Track Classic, held in Carson on May 16, is the unofficial opening of the outdoor season for this track fan. I look at the meet to see the new discoveries, who is back, who is going to be on the radar, and who needs some work to be ready in less than one month four our US championships.

Men's 100 meters

Darvis Patton, aka Doc, showed that he is a tough competitor, and how he continues to confuse me if he is better over 200 meters or 100 meters. Patton was in fourth at 70 meters, and he actually fought for the next thirty meters, one stride after another, moving to third, then second, then first, and winning in a nice 10.12 over a tough field. Strange start though, as Yohan Blake, a young Jamaican find, stood straight up, thinking that it was another false start.

Doc is one of our sports most enduring athletes. He is always thoughtful, and it is obvious that the guy loves the sport and loves to race. Patton is good for our sport. Darvis shows that staying focused, working hard, and never giving up is a good life lesson. This is what Doc had to say: "I was happy to come out and win against this great competition. Beating the Olympic silver medalist is always good, but the whole field was strong. Coming out with a victory is always good. It's a good indicator and a confidence booster."

Men's 200 meters

Merritt_LaShawn-Carson09.jpg

LaShawn Merritt, the 2008 gold medalist from Beijing at 400 meters, is healthy and ready to roll! His race at 200 meters today showed he is on the road to Berlin!


LaShawn Merritt said he needed " a little speedwork". Well, Merritt was firing on all cylinders, as he got out well, and came off the turn striding out like a 400 meter runner. Merritt just did not win, but he blew the field apart, winning in a fine 20.07. Merritt won by.65 over Xavier Carter, who ran 20.75.

In a question from Dwight Stones, LaShawn made it abundantly clear that he will not be doubling in Berlin WC 2009. " I am focusing on the 400 meters."

Merritt noted to USATF afterwards,: "Before the race my calf was cramping a little bit. I didn't get out as hard because of it. It was a little sluggish. I was just going to build into it. I came off the curve and had the strength to hold."

Merritt is running the 400 meters at the Reebok GP 2009, and then the 300 meters at Nike Pre on June 7. One of the most exciting duels of 2009-Merritt vs. Wariner is going to get hot!

Men's 400 meters

Wariner_Jeremy1-Carson09.jpg

Running with a confidence not seen in the past year, Jeremy Wariner got out well, and hit the 200 meters in just over 21 seconds. But, it was his next 100 meters, around the turn, what I used to call the patented MJ run, where Wariner showed he is running with a returned ferocity. Coming off the turn, Wariner had the race under control, and ran well on a windy day, with a fine 44.66.

When interviewed after the race, Wariner told Dwight Stones of ESPN2 that he was trying to get back to where he used to be. That is great for track fans, and good for Jeremy. In an interview with rbr (http://www.runblogrun.com/2009/05/rbr_talks_track_with_jeremy_wa.html) back in March, Wariner made it very clear that he wanted to race again.

The 2008 season was tough for Wariner. He changed coaches, and had constant criticism about that. Most important for Wariner, he had real competition, in LaShawn Merritt. In 2008, Wariner and Merritt dueled over 400 meters, and in the two most important races of the year, Merritt defeated Wariner. Looking at his demeanor after the races, I think Wariner was in shock. The truth is this: no matter who you are, in our sport, it about what happens in your current competition.

In the final analysis, this may have been the best thing to happen to Wariner. Jeremy is training well, he is back with Coach Clyde Hart, and he is racing with a new found enthusiasm. Jeremy Wariner executed like he did in 2005. It was fun watching him churn up the track over the third hundred meters.

Wariner had this to say in the mixed zone: "I executed better than I should have. Right now I'm just focusing on every part of the race. I recently got back with my old coach (Clyde Hart). Coach Ford is a wonderful coach. Experience made the difference. I went back with Coach Hart."

Men's 1,500 meters

The wind played a big part in this race, although the pace was fast-56.75 at 400 meters, 800 meters in 1:55, and 1,100 meters in 2:40. Christian Hesch took the pace out, as a rabbit. Bernard Lagat, Lopez Lomong, Chris Lukesic, Nate Brannen and Peter
van der Westhuizen.

Lagat_BernardFV_Carson09.jpg

As Lagat come off the final lap, Nate Brannen and Peter van der Westhuizen were in tow, with Lagat clearly running well. Bernard Lagat ran the final lap in 56 seconds, with Nate Brannen and Peter van der Westhuizen back about a second. Will Leer, who ran so well in the US trials finished fourth place.

Lagat had these comments: "I am really pleased with winning. I was feeling good all the way. Even at the bell I wanted to go. So I had to wait, wait, wait. So I went at about 150 and it worked out."

Men's 5,000 meters

Gebremeskel-Cragg-Carson09.jpg

In a tight race, Dejen Gebremeskal and Alistair Cragg, former Razorback, dueled over a windy 5k, both in 13:16. Scotty Bauhs took third in 13:38.

Dobson-Bauhs1-Carson09.jpg

Ian Dobson, 2008 Olympian, 5k, and Scotty Bauhs, new pro runner finished sixth and third, respectively, in the men's 5,000 meters.

Men's 110m hurdles

You have to appreciate Terrance Trammell. Terrance has won medals in World Champs, Olympics and is one of the best players in the high hurdles game. In this effort, Terrance got out well, and hurdled well, sensing Antwon Hicks on his shoulder. Trammell held Hicks over the last three hurdles, with Terrance taking the win, 13.39 to 13.45.

Trammell commented on his race : "I'm happy with the win. I feel good. I'm looking to do some big things. Things are working out really well."

Men's 400m hurdles

This was a fascinating race. In the race, Felix Sanchez, the 2004 Olympic gold medalist, and Angelo Taylor, the 2000 and 2008 Olympic gold medalist plus the 2008 Olympic silver medalist, Kerron Clement were entered.

Clement is one of the most talented athletes in our sport. Angelo Taylor beat Clement in the Olympics last year, as Clement had a weakness: over the last few hurdles, Clement tended to slow down.

Well, Kerron has obviously worked on hurdles eight and nine. Running a bit slower out of the blocks, Clement came upon Taylor and Sanchez, who went out very fast. Note that this was the first time that Sanchez had been healthy since 2006, and he was running his first 400m hurdle race of the year. Kerron came off the last turn with a slight lead, and continued to hurdle well, and as Taylor made his move past Sanchez, and moved along Clement, that was as far as Taylor would get--Kerron held on for the win, in 48.38 to 48.70. James Carter ended up fifth.

"I'm really happy to come out and compete against the top guys like Angelo (Taylor) and James Carter. I just stayed focused on myself and came up with the win. I knew something was wrong after the 7th hurdle. I just took it regardless. I was a 110 hurdler so I know how to adjust. I just didn't let it affect me at all." noted Kerron Clement after wards.

Men's Long Jump

Dwight Philips won the gold in Athens in 2004, and won the gold in Helsinki in 2005, in the long jump. In 2007, Dwight won the bronze medal in the long jump. In an interview in Osaka after his event, Dwight told the assembled media that he would be back in Beijing. It, unfortunately, did not work out that way.

Phillips_Dwight-Carson09.jpg

2009 has been quite different. First, he jumps 27-11 1/2 in the long jump. Two weeks ago, he ran 10.06 for 100 meters, his personal best! And at the adidas Track Classic, Dwight jumped 27-5 1/4 on his first jump and that was it! Phillips won the event!

Dwight told the media after wards, : "I'm satisfied with the win today. I wanted to do a lot better. I already have the world leading jump but it was a little windy out here. I am coming out to redeem myself and win the World Championships."

Men's Discus

Throwing injury free after a stomach muscle tear, Ian Waltz won here, with a throw of 61.70m. Jarred Rome was second with a throw of 61.59m, Adam Kuehl was third in 60.64m.

Ian Waltz spoke to the media about his win after the competition, noting: "I'm just happy to be healthy. Last year at the (Olympic) Trials I tore my abductor muscle in my stomach. I'm finally throwing pain free.I feel like I'm a month or two behind where I need to be but that's okay because World's are in August."


Women's 100 meters

Jeter-Hooker-Edwards-Carson09.jpg

This was the day of false starts. Bianca Knight was disqualified from a false start. In the final, Carmelita Jeter, who had a tremendous 2007, and then an oh so close 2008, is starting off 2009, taking the win in 11.09. Muna Lee was second in 11.22, and Stephanie Durst, in third, had the same time. Kelly-Anne Baptiste was fourth.

Jeter noted, : "The race was a little scary with so many false starts and someone getting kicked out of the race. My coach and I have been working on coming back and keeping my composure. I'm usually the one that lays back in the blocks. This time I didn't do that."

Women's 200 meters

Felix_Allyson-Carson09.jpg

Allyson Felix had an okay start, but took control of this race as she blistered the turn, running into a negative win of -1.9ms. She stormed off the turn, and Felix was in control, striding down the back stretch, taking the win in 22.66. Sanya Richards took second in 23.03, with Shalonda Solomon in third and Bianca Knight in fourth.

Allyson Felix commented on her nice run like this: "I'm just pleased to get out there and have a good performance. I had hoped it would be a little faster than it was. I always try to run home strong.It's really special to run here. This is the only time many of my family members will get to see me run."

I have been lucky enough to watch Allyson Felix since she was a sophomore in high school. One of the truly class acts of our sport, Felix is thrilling to watch race. She runs the 200 meters as her main race. In my humble opinion, someday, we will see her run her perfect distance: and that would be a complete lap around the track. Her foray at the distance this year, is the world leader. To read an interview we did of Allyson, please check http://www.runblogrun.com/2009/05/post_31.html


Women's 400 meters

Hastings_Natasha-Carson09.jpg

Natasha Hastings, who is training with Coach Bob Kersee and his athletes Kerron Clement and Allyson Felix, ran a smart race. Novlene Williams went out hard, with Hastings right behind. Williams and Hastings came off the turn, and it was Natasha Hastings who ran down the field and took the race with her 51.46.

Hastings said, after the race: "I'm used to running out hard. I got out pretty good. Once I came off the final turn. I gave it all I had.it makes me feel good that I can run well with one shoe and then run well with both shoes on this week."

Women's 1,500 meters

Off a pedestrian pace, Kenia Sinclair, Marina Muncan, Mestawot Tadesse, Malindi Elmore, Erin Donahue and Lindsay Gallo took off with seven hundred meters to go. First it was Mestawot Tadesse, then Kenia Sinclair took off, running a 63 second last lap, and that was what she needed, winning in 4:13.16. Then, there was a mass finish, with nine runners in 1.4 seconds.

Sinclair_KeniaFV_Carson09.jpg

Marina Muncan took second in 4:13.43, Mestawot Tadesse took third in 4:13.69, Amy Mortimer in fourth in 4.13.85, Malindi Elmore in fifth and Erin Donahue in sixth.

Running a smart race, and in the battle until the last two hundred meters was Jordan Hasay, who finished 11th in 4:16.92. Hasay, five weeks before her high school state meet, ran a smart race. Next fall for Hasay, she will be living in Eugene, Oregon, as a Duck.

Women's 5,000 meters

This race was all about the run for an AR by Shalane Flanagan. In her indoor season, Shalane had battled to the finish at the Reebok GP, setting a new indoor AR. A great field was put together, lead by Ejegayehu Dibaba, Sally Kipyego, Aheza Kiros and Shalane Flanagan. Along with Jenn Rhines and Carrie Tollefson.

Kiros-Dibaba-Carson09.jpg

Alas, it was not to be. Christian Wurth Thomas, coming back from the 800 meters, helped with the pacing through 1200 meters. By 2,000 meters, Flanagan was seven second behind and by 3k, Shalane was out of the main race.

Flanagan_Shalane-Carson09.jpg

Having a bad race in the sprints is one thing. Having a bad day over 12.5 laps is another level of hell. Flanagan just had a bad race in windy conditions, nothing more, nothing less. Aheza Kiros, on the other hand, was having a very good day on the track. Yin and Yang. It's what makes our sport fascinating.

In the end, it came down to Ejegayehu Dibaba and Aheza Kiros following Sally Kipyego. Aheza Kiros took over from Ejegayehu in second and then took the lead. Aheza Kiros was running well. Known more for her road forays, Kiros took the win in this race, running a nice 14:56.33. Ejebayehu Dibaba stayed on for second, running 15:07.45 with Sally Kipyego, in one of her first professional races, taking third in 15:09.03. Shalane Flanagan finished in fourth in 15:10.86. Jennifer Rhines finished fourth in 15:36.09. Carrie Tollefson took sixth in 15:52.38.


Women's steeplechase

Anne Willard won the U.S. Olympic Trials steeplechase last year. It was a tremendous race. At the Olympics, Jenny Barringer, one place ahead of Willard, set the new AR for the steeplechase.

Ann ran to a nice win at the steeplechase with a 9:26.85, her second best time, I believe. Lindsay Anderson was second in 9:37.88 and Lindsay Allen was third in 9:47.21.

Willard_Anna-Carson09.jpg

Willard is now training at Mammouth under the watchful eyes of Terrance Mahon. This writer met Anne and Ian Dobson in Boston after the marathon. Willard won the road mile there, in windy conditions, and looked great. Her 1,500 m racing will help her run faster.

In the conditions, Willards' run was probably a 9:19-20 in regular conditions. Watch Willard, Anderson and Barringer at the US championships. Anne commented : "It was good today. I was kind of going for a PR. I'm a little disappointed. I respond to competition a lot more than running out there by myself. I need someone breathing down my neck.I did well today, it's a good opener."

Good opener indeed. The U.S. may have a few steeplechasers now!

Women's 100m hurdles

Harper_Dawn1_Carson09.jpg

Last summer, Dawn Harper ran her perfect race in the final of the women's 100m hurdles in Beijing, taking the gold medal! She had not won an elite race all year. At the adidas meet, Dawn got out well, after the false starts, and did not look back, holding off Perdita Felician and Michelle Perry, who were second and third. Dawn ran 12.78.

The race was further complicated by the two-three false starts. Dawn made this observation after her race:" We restarted it seemed like 3 times, so I had to get refocused. My start was okay. I thought I was flat a couple in the middle. I knew I had to leave it all on the line at the end with Perdita (Felicien) and that's what I did. The time may not show it, but I'm ready for strong competition."

Women's Pole Vault

Stuczynski_Jenn1-Carson09.jpg

One of the little secrets at the adidas Track Classic is the pole vault conditions. For the past two years, Jenn Stuczynski set American records. This year, with a runway harder than in past years, and windy conditions, Stuczynski had some challenges. It took her two attempts at 15-2. By 15-7, she was on form, her hip height was good, and she was focused. On her next height, she went for 4.93m, or 16-2. Her first attempt, Jenn hit the bar with her leg. On the second attempt, using a new pole, Jenn had good hip height, but hit the bar again. On her third attempt, she did not use the new pole aggressively, got good hip height, but hit the bar with her leg.

Stuczynski_Jenn-Carson09.jpg

Stuczynski noted: "I'm a little disappointed. I should have had 4.93m with the pole I was on. It's early. I love coming to LA and competing at the adidas meet. I'm looking for a little more consistency. I feel stronger. I'm definitely a lot stronger."

Watch Jenn Stuczynski this summer. There is new AR written all over this competition.


Final thoughts: The adidas meet is all about the competition. A great meet in LA and NY are important for our sport. However, the challenge for our sport is to a) communicate the excitement of our sport to a populace spoon fed reality TV, made for TV pretend sports b) manage a few great events well on TV, web and print c) create heroes and d) show that our sport is the answer to the concern about youth obesity, and a no brainer way to cut healthcare costs.
