2011 adidas Grand Prix NYC: RN Photo Gallery, note by Larry Eder


2011 adidas Grand Prix meet had some superb performances, and some big surprises.The performance that will go down on the record books is the adidas Golden Spikes mile, where, for only the second time in athletics history, a U.S. high school runner, in a high school only race, broke four minutes for the mile. This time, following in the footsteps of one Jim Ryun, was Lukas Verzbicas, who ran a spectacular 3:59.71! What has not been talked about was the depth in the race, where twelve high school boys broke 4:10.2 for the mile!

The men's 100 meters, won by Steve Mullings after three false starts, did show that Tyson Gay, even with a bad start has his mid race gear back. I am looking forward to seeing that in Daegu!
