    I just want to start a thread for 2019 track season. We will have alot of indoor meets in the
    coming months. I'm also excited for the outdoor season starting in Australia right now. I hope
    mastermulti can give us an update soon. I really want to see a few Aussies go sub 10. It could make
    athletics even more popular in the land own under!

    It is early and the times are not great but 4 out of the top 10 60 meter indoor times thus on have been run by white Americans. Blake Smith, Wayne Sharbayashan, Chad Zallow and Zach Jewell. Jewell looks the part of a future Lemaitre. I see Jewell and Australia's Trae Williams as legitimate threats to break the 10 second barrier sooner rather than later. Also Emile Erasmus may have a 9.95 in him this year. People say the USA dosen't have any white depth in the sprints may be mistaken. Now only if John Teeters shows up soon.

    according to IAAF website Kevin Krantz, Germany, has run a 6.62 already while Mary Elizabeth Sant opened with a PB (PR) 7.26 to be 3rd in the world after a few years in the wilderness.

    Still nothing to report here downunder though

    Good news. Kranz is only 20 and ran a 10.24 last summer. He should obliterate that time this summer.

    I agree she has digressed in the past few seasons under the coach change. The biggest differences I have noticed were lack of speed stamina in most of her races especially where it is close. She tightens up almost like she is a bit panicked. I also think she is dealing with far too much pressure after her early successes in the sprints.
    It is difficult to sprint in the first place imagine carrying loads of pressure in each and every race. Possibly she could use some sports psychology guru in her corner? Maybe I am totally off mark as well it’s not like I am a wiz coach or track brainiac lol. I do however wish her well!
    I also would love to see Marybeth Sant continue to overcome the injuries that derailed her at Oregon. She is a flat out burner when healthy.
