Maggie Vessey: 1:57.85, LaShinda Demus: 52.63, Monaco Herculis Meeting, July 28, 2009, results, comments by Larry Eder

| 0 Comments

Maggie Vessey has been looking to get under 2:00.00 for the A standard for 800 meters, she had run 2:00.14, then 2:00.12, now she cranks 1:57.85-the world leader! LaShinda Demus had the world leader, but her 52.63 has not put her into the statosphere! Both performances run at the Herculis Monaco meeting, where gambling is just a short walk into the city, but no one, no one, would have counted on those two performances!

Maggie Vessey is coached by Greg Brock, a former Stanford University Athlete, under then coach Payton Jordan. Brock is a very modest human being, and one of the most underrated coaches in the U.S. What he had done with Maggie Vessey, a quite talented athlete, shows how superb talent, and super coaching can make for an exciting story. You are looking at a women who can win the World Champs, no pressure Maggie!
