Diego has been known to duck competition, probably saw lawi in the 10k and got scared the same way he decided to run for mexico and refusing to race teg, ritz, derrick, etc at the olympic trials to make the olympics

If he really wanted to duck competition why would he run in the Olympics at all? By competing for Mexico he basically guaranteed that he'd get a chance to race against the best guys on the planet.

I am surprised Estrada is not in the 10k. Maybe he wants to race a tired Lawi the next day. He will be fresh unlike all of the guys who choose to run the 10k.

I am excited by Lawi running the 10k. I have always thought that the 10k would be his best event.

west regions is a second or two faster for the qualifying times in every event, but its amazing how close the two are. There still should be 4-8 regions though.

If they used 4 and especially 8 regions there would be large disparities across regions and even with 4 you would only advance 6 (8=> top-3 only).

I'm sorry....did someone say the West is faster?

The East is MUCH faster in nearly every single event, as far as the track events go.

In face...I did some research. As follows are the 48th seed results for each event:

100- EAST by .09 seconds (10.47 to 10.56)
200- EAST by .27 seconds (21.07 to 21.34)
400- WEST by .23 seconds (47.17 to 47.40)
800- EAST by .12 seconds (1:50.26 to 1:50.38)
1500- WEST by .68 seconds (3:47.35 to 3:46.67)
3,000 steeple- WEST by 1.91 seconds (9:02.84 to 9:00.93)
5,000- WEST by 1.66 (14:14.55 to 14:12.89)
10,000- EAST by 1.60 seconds (29:49.56 to 29:51.16)
110 Hurdles- EAST by .25 (14.15 to 14.40)
400 Hurdles- EAST .11 (52.65 TO 52.76)
4X100- EAST by .04 (40.48 to 40.52)
4x400- WEST by .23 (3:10.06 to 3:10.29)
High Jump- WEST by .02m (2.10m to 2.08m)
Pole Vault- WEST by .15m (5.10m to 4.95m)
Long Jump- WEST by .01m (7.36m to 7.35m)
Triple Jump- EAST by .15m (15.12m to 14.97m)
Shot Put- WEST by .06m (17.01m to 16.95m)
Discus- WEST by .73m (52.31m to 51.58m)
Hammer- WEST by 1.41m (58.67m to 57.26m)
Javelin- EAST by .31m (62.79m to 62.48m)

TOTALS
EAST- 9
WEST- 11

EAST wins running events 7-5.
WEST wins field events 6-2.

Rough year for Eddie Owens.

Abbey D'Agostino is only doing the 5k, which is what I had expected as there were rumors going around about her considering the 1500-5k double.

To take it an un-needed (but less time consuming that I originally thought, but enough that am only doing men's running events, I can do more later but field events and that darn 'm" make the excel transfer tougher), here's the averages of each region's times in each event:

EAST
100- 10.34
200- 20.81
400- 46.66
800- 1:49.1
1500- 3:44.8
3k Steeple- 8:55.3
5K- 14:00.6
10k- 29:31.9
110 H- 13.93
400 H- 51.91
4x1- 39.91
4x4- 3:07.5

WEST
100- 10.40
200- 21.02
400- 46.52
800- 1:49.3
1500- 3:43.9
3k Steeple- 8:52.7
5K- 13:54.4
10K- 29:26.7
110 H- 14.04
400 H-51.52
4x1- 39.94
4x4- 3:07.4

East- 5 West- 7.

its not much easier to make one region over the other. If you look at the distance races however, it is much easier to advance from the East region to the national meet than it is to advance from the West Region to the national meet.
Not so fast my friend

Are distance races much easier in the East? Or is it the fact that there isn't a Payton Jordan/Stanford Invite/Mt. Sac equivalent in the East region?

Much easier to run fast in the West coast races

What make you say that it's easier to qualify out of the east? Do you mean the times are generally slower so it's "easier to qualify"? If so, times do not equate to ease in terms of qualifying for a final. In fact, I'd argue that slower times mean that better kickers get it to nationals.
Being that NCAAs is usually a kickers race it would seem that runners out of the east, being the better kickers, would have a better chance performing well at nationals.
BOOM ROASTED!!!

I'm not saying that the times mean anything. I agree that the times run to this point in the season mean nothing and that the west guys have had more opportunities to run fast. The reason for my statement was more due to the fact that the West has been better than the east in the 5/10 the past few years at NCAA meet and I would expect this year to be the same based on the people (not the times) in each region.
west coast best coast

This guy's right.
On the men's side I think 8 or 9 of the top 10 in the 5k were from the west region last year.
Same with 10k.
