I can’t believe how fast and deep some of these events are.
Just looking at the girls 3200, there were six under 10:50 today, 10 under 11 and 21 at 11:06.XX or faster
In 2003, 11:16 placed 5th in the M-of-C. In 1999, 11:18 got 2nd.
In the entire decade of the 1990s, only 15 girls broke 11 in the Meet of Champions 3200. Fourth place was sub-11 just once out of those 10 years.
Today, 15 girls ran 11:03 or faster.
There’s a good chance more girls will break 11 Thursday night than did in the entire 1990s, although the weather doesn’t look great.
