USATF Indoor Champs, Day 1: Results, Day 1, Notes by Larry Eder



The USA Indoor Champs in Albuquerque, New Mexico were received by a SRO crowd on day one. The stands and standing room hold just under 3,000 fans, and both the athletes and fans were appreciative. The throws, held off the back turn of the track, were well supported! The highlights of the championship's day one: Chaunte Howard's oh, so close in high jump, and the men and women's 3,000 meter races. Read on!

The weight throws, won by AG Kruger and Amber Campbell, were well supported, by a crowd whom the majority have never seen a weight throw before. In the stands, it was obvious that the local young athletes knew who the top stars were, as one could here both Renee Metivier Bailee and Bernard Lagat's name screamed into the huge caldron of interest in the distance races! On the field event side, Chaunte Howard cleared a new AR in the high jump, 6-07 and the bar fell off! The two oldest guys in the pole vault competition, Tim Mack & Derek Miles, controlled their injuries enough, to both clear 5.70m, enough to make the team. In the high jump Jesse Williams hinted of what he can do-clear 2.37m,
which would make him a medal prospect in Doha.

Men's high jump final....Williams in the clutch


Jesse Williams, US Olympic Trials, 2008, photo by

Jesse Williams showed his stuff tonight in the high jump. His clearances of 2.31m, 2.34m were clean and decisive. Williams had to make 2.31m to make the team, and then, 2.34 clinched it for him. He made on attempt at 2.37m, and passed. 2.37m will probably be the height that determines medals in Doha, so Jesse, who is a strong medal prospect, will need another clutch performance. Dusty Jonas finished second in 2.31m, and Andra Manson took third, also in 2.31. After the event, Jesse described his view of the competition :

"It got off to a shaky start with a couple of the lower heights and I was in fourth place when the bar changed to 7'7". I knew I had to at least make that height to get on the team. I went ahead and made 7'8". A couple of other guys made it and I knew if I didn't make 7'8" I still may have not made the team because I had a couple other early misses. I knew I had to make 7'8", I made it on the first attempt and I feel really good about it. It was a great competition. I think it was the best competition ever for the USA championships. It was an honor to be a part of and especially to win. I am excited and I really feel that I can get a medal. The Russians have won a lot of things for a long time. Hopefully we can take it to the Russians. I've been training very hard. I had an injury (strained tendon on my jumping foot, just below the ankle) and this is only my second meet of the year. I hope I didn't re-hurt my foot, it's kind of tender right now and it isn't feeling too good."

Men's 5,000m race walk...Seaman makes history!

Tim Seaman, one of our most seasoned race walkers, indoors and out, has won 43rd U.S. championship at any distance, (Tim races from the 1,500m walk to 50,000m walk!). This one was a battle royale, and fittingly, his twelfth indoor U.S. champs-the most by any athlete in any discipline. Tim was pretty talkative afterwards: "Today went different. Out of all the 12 championships this is definitely the most topsy turvy race I have ever done. With the altitude you can't just push, you have push and then rest. Once I've taken the lead I have never let it up. This is the first time that I let the lead up. I was frustrated that I took it out so slow. I told myself 'Ok, I'm going to take it,' and I pushed too hard and I had to slow down. It felt like my lungs were burning and I spent three weeks at altitude so I can only imagine how these other guys how bad they felt. This is my 43rd win overall, so it moves me into No. 2 all-time track and field national championship wins. This was my 12th win in indoor, which is the most by any athlete in any event in track and field history."

Women's weight throw-Amber Campbell leads the world!


Amber Campbell, US Indoor 2009, photo by

Amber Campbell, gave the throw fans something to cheer! A fantastic series, all in 23.52-24.70m range (one foul), and Amber won by eight feet, her worst throw would have won by six feet. Her 81-00.5, or 24.70m throw, is the third farthest in history! Campbell is exciting to watch, as her form is flawless and the power in her throws amazed the appreciative crowd. Amber gave the media assembled much to ponder:

"This hands down was one of the best series ever. It felt great, the crowd was amazing, the ball was just flying. It felt amazing. (how it felt to open with the her best throw) Fantastic. You can never complain about opening up with your best throw ever. I was trying to focus on the things we have been working on in practice. It was mechanical. I was trying to hit the things that I have been working on, it was very step one, step two, step three. I guess I should do it like that all the time. (on her homecoming) My god parents are here and my uncle, I haven't seen them in years. It really is like coming home."

Men's Pole Vault..the Old Guys Kicked butt!

The pole vault is a chess match in the air. Experience shows and the old guys, aka Tim Mack and Derek Miles, both, all of 37 years old, let the young uns do the jumping. Karen Locke, agent of Derek Miles told me later that this ws Miles first competition of the year, due to recovering from injuries and Tim Mack's first team in a few years!

Essentially, Mack and Miles let the young guys jump at 5.25, 5.40, and Mack cleared 5.40, 5.50, 5.60 and 5.70. Miles cleared 5.40, took three times a 5.50, cleared 5.60m and took two to clear 5.70m. Both tried to clear 5.80m but not today! Darren Neidermeyer, who finished third, cleared 5.40m, 5.50m, and then 5.60m. He had three misses at 5.65m.

A very satisfied Tim Mack spoke to the press, and had this to say: "It means a lot. I am still fired up. This is the highest I have jumped in indoors in six years. I felt really good coming into the meet. (competition with the other gold medaler) We are actually really good friends, we helped each other out a lot. But a lot of time during competition I have too much to worry about than to think about other people. I was competing against the event really."

Women's high jump final....Chaunte Howard Lowe-so close!

Chaunte Howard, Millrose 2009, photo by

Chaunte Howard is ready for Doha. After winning at 1.98m/6-06, Howard cleared 6-9, or 2.01m, and the bar
fell over AFTER she cleared it, so a foul. Can she do it, yes! When will she do it? Hopefully, Doha! The crowd went nuts on
her 1.98m, and when she cleared 2.01m, which would have been the AR, they were on their feet! Afterwards, Chaunte had lots to say:

"This hit my outdoor personal record (PR) but indoor yes that is the closest I have ever come to it. I knew I was over it, I felt it. Maybe I got lazy at the end but I didn't feel like I touched the bar or anything so when it came down it shocked me. But I was happy to be able to get that much height over it. This is the best I have ever jumped this early in the season. My indoor PR last year was 195, this is by far the best. It's really exciting because I haven't PRed since I had my daughter, and she is two and a half now. This is huge for me. When I saw the bar fall, I was excited because I got that high, but it felt like everything had slipped through my fingers. That would have been a good mark for the Visa Series."

Men's 3,000 meters--amazing finish!


Bernard Lagat, Rbk BIG, February 2009, photo by

The two most popular events of the evening were the last two-the men and women's 3,000 meter races. In the men's race, Bernard Lagat, Galen Rupp, Scotty Bauhs and Chris Solinsky were the key players as the pack hit 72 for the 400 meters, 2:25 for 800 meters, 3:34 for 1,200 meters and 4;34 for the 1,600 meters.

The kilometer splits showed the race progression: 2:59.80 for 1,000 m, 5:42.08 for 2,000m (2:42) and 8:12.60 for the finish (2:32 for the last kilometer).

A pack of six to eight jostled around as the pace dropped to four minute mile pace. Bauhs, Solinsky, Lagat and a floating Rupp were looking tough. Common thought was that Lagat had it locked, but that Rupp had better watch out for Solinsky.

Using a move out of the Steve Ovett play book, Bernard Lagat took the lead and ran a 27.4 last 200 meters to take the win. Galen Rupp moved by Bauhs, as did Solinsky, and Solinsky got to Rupps' shoulder as the crowd stood, screaming. After Lagat, Galen Rupp took second, with Chris Solinsky less than .4 back! Scotty Bauhs was fourth, running his best race in ages.

Bernard Lagat was the crowd favorite and he, as always, spoke thoughtfully after the race: "I didn't know how I was going to feel with the altitude. I actually didn't feel anything after about five laps. I just wanted to have fun. I was running on the inside. I wanted to be able to keep an eye on who was going to make a move. I just wanted to win and make the team. I wanted to maintain the lead. I wanted to make sure I was going to be number one. I wanted to win and make the team. That is what I came here for."

Congrats again to Galen Rupp, who continues to show he has the moves and the racing savvy to race at the championship level. Word was that coach Alberto Salazar, seen running around the outside of the track just before hand, had picked the top three perfectly.

Women's 3,000 meters-what a finish!

Renee Metivier Baillie took the lead from the start, and did not give it up, fighting off the hard charges of Sarah Hall and Shannon Rowbury. Baillee took off, having up to a half lap lead. Shannon Rowbury and Sarah Hall already had the standards, and held back as Baillee lead the race. Most fans thought it was only a moment in time before Shannon Rowbury, who looked great, made a move and took the lead. Sarah Hall was running well, and she looked, well, menacing.


Shannon Rowbury, Rbk BIG 2010, photo by

The race got going with five laps to go. Rowbury made a half hearted move, but it was not until Sarah Hall came up on her back, with two laps to go, that the race got very exciting. Renee Baillee continued to run hard, most in the crowd wondering if she could hold on. With one lap to go, Sarah Hall was pushing from third and Rowbury just could not find another gear. Hall charged by on the last turn and while Rowbury was flying, she was behind Hall, who seemed intent to get Renee Metivier Baillee, but, again, as the crowd rose, and the three runners were intent to seeing who was making that finish line first, Hall looked to be the person, but Metivier Bailee held her off!


Sara Hall, in full flight, Fifth Avenue Mile, 2009, photo by

In the end, Renee Metivier Baillee had won one of the most unusual and exciting races of the meet! Afterwards, she noted:
"Coach might be mad at me I was supposed to wait five laps and then take off. I could just tell that everyone was putting on the breaks and I thought screw it I'm going to go. I had a really good workout on Tuesday so I had the confidence to continue. In a race situation you don't always know what to do so I just went with my gut. I never quite knew how far the gap was, I was just focused on myself. I had to stay in the moment each lap by lap. I know I have a good kick and as soon as I hit the last lap I knew I was going to give it a run. I didn't know what was going to happen but you have to be confident in yourself whether you win or lose."

Men's Hammer Throw-Tenth Best EVER!


A.G. Kruger, US Indoor 2009, photo by

A.G. Kruger rewarded the fans with a strong series and another example of why he is the best in the U.S. Here is what he had to say: "I had a lot of fun this year. I trained to throw far. I knew I was capable so I just came out here and threw. The tenth best throw ever. It was great."

Men's Triple Jump: Lawrence Willis

Lawrence Willis won the triple jump in 16.86m or 55-03. He will need 17 meters to be in the hunt in Doha. Congrats to Lawrence for putting some excitement back into an event
the U.S. owned. Here is what Mr. Willis said after his event:

"The competition was great. Jumping against the reigning champion, I knew I had to put up a good mark. It's...I don't even know what to say. After taking a year off, with all the support from my family and friends, this just feels great."
