| 0 Comments

Ronnie Baker was fifth in that incredible 2021 Tokyo Olympic 100m final. He was second in the 2018 World Indoor Championshp 60m. As he plans for 2022, Ronnie Baker is speaking about wanting to run both Belgrade and Eugene. Here's a clip on Ronnie and what he wants in 2021-2021: https://www.runblogrun.com/2021/06/-runblogrun-presents-socialing-the-distance-featuring-ronnie-baker-nike-sponsored-athlete.html

Two of America's finest milers, Elle Purrier St. Pierre and Cole Hocker will take on elite fields in the WHOOP Wanamaker mile at the 2022 Millrose Games. The Wanamaker Mile has, for most of the past 113 years, been a huge draw. Special shout out to new sponsor WHOOP who took over the sponsorship of the presitgious mile after NYRR pulled out as sponsor of both the Millrose Games and the Wanamaker mile!

I liked this piece by David Monti, on the challenges NCAA college coaches face with NCAA cross country and NCAA indoor track and field championships on the same weekends.

Wild card and $10,000

| 0 Comments

The 2021 World Indoor Tour has just ended, and World Athletics is announcing the wild card status on the 11 winners and cash prizes.

An excellent ending to the 2021 World Indoor Tour, with an exciting world indoor record and two world leads. This is the event by event meet update provided by EME News.

The complete results on Villa de Madrid Gallur are below. The meet had a world indoor record at the 60m hurdles by Grant Holloway with his 7.29. Some quick distance events added to the final meet in the 2021 World Indoor Tour.

The opening meet in 2021 for Grant Holloway was Jan. 24, 2021. He opened with 7.38 in the heats and 7.35 in the final. Grant was so far ahead that he could have had a sack lunch and still won.

In Lieven, Grant Holloway was on, and he was near perfection. His hurdling was sublime. His sprinting was fast and furious. In coming oh so close to the time that Colin Jackson achieved three decades ago, Grant Holloway is just hinting at the ability that he has in the 60m hurdles and 110m hurdles. Hint some more, oh @Flaamingoo!

The ATL Meet 4 was a suitable end to the 2021 elite season in the US.

This is the Saturday workout. It combines hills and speed play. Stay aware. Stay focused.
