Post USA Week in Review Mar 14 - Mar 20, 2011

From USATF Statistician Glen McMicken


After a long winter indoors, and with sights firmly set on Daegu and the IAAF World Championships, some of Team USA's brightest stars opened their outdoor campaigns both in the U.S. and overseas.

* Sanya Richards-Ross, the 2009 Jesse Owens Award winner and world champion at 400 meters, kicked off '11 with a swift 200m at the TCU Invitational in Fort Worth, zipping to a 23.06. At the same meet, multiple Olympic and World 400 medalist Jeremy Wariner clocked 20.71 in the 200m.

* Heptathlon world record holder Ashton Eaton, the 2010 NCAA decathlon champion, stayed in Eugene for the Oregon Preview and picked up a personal best 56.59m/185-3 in the javelin on his only attempt.

* Running Down Under at the Sydney Classic, two-time Olympic 400m hurdle champion Angelo Taylor stuck with the flat sprints, nabbing a pair of wins in the 200m (20.71) and 400m (45.71).

* Three-time World Championships 100 hurdler Ginnie Crawford also opened up on the flat with an 11.60 in the 100 at the USC Trojan Invitational.

* She hadn't run the 100 hurdles in six years, but two-time World Championships 400H silver medalist Lashinda Demus overcame a 3.3 mps headwind to run 13.17 and win the San Diego State Aztec Invitational.
