This is my daily chat with #RunBlogRun viewers and track fans on all things track & field!
This is Coffee with Larry for Saturday, July 8, 2023.
This is our daily podcast on all that is going on in the track and field world.
1. Men’s 10,000m, how would feel if you ran a sub-4-minute pace for 3 laps and did not make the top 3? Grant Fisher, AR, at 10,000m, ran 2:56 and did not make the team. Woody Kincaid ran 54.6 last lap, with Joe Klecker and Sean McGorty in quick pursuit!
2. The Women’s 10,000m was quite the same. After a pedestrian 34-minute pace for 9 kilometers, the pace quickened, as Alicia Monson put it on the line. Elise Cranny dropped a big last lap, put on 5 seconds on Alicia, and Natasha Rodgers hung on for dear life for third.
3. In the Women’s 100m, it was all Sha’Carri Richardson’world; we just live in it. Running 10.71 in the heats, 10.75 in the semis, and 10.83 in the final, Sha’Carri had her fans at her fingertips.
4. In Men’s 100m, Cravont Charleston, who ran 9.95 and 9.90 this past summer in Europe, dropped a big 9.95 to take first as Christian Coleman and Noah Lyles dueled.
5. Anna Hall scored a nice 6,667 points in the heptathlon, with Taliyah Brooks in second and Chari Hawkins in third. Anna Hall and Nafi Thiam should battle in Budapest.
6. In the Decathlon, Harrison Williams scored 8,630 PB to take the win. Zach Ziemek scored 8508 SB, and Austin West scored 8,331 PB in third.
7. In the Women’s High Jump, Vashti Cunningham won her 13th national title with a clearance of 1.91m. Rylee Anderson was 2nd in 1.86m and Jenna Rogers was 3rd in 1.86m.
8. In the Triple Jump, Donald Scott won in 17.22m, with Will Claye in 16.98m, SB, and Chris Bernard in 16.68m.
See you tomorrow, #coffeewithLarry
