RE: Devon Allen
Have you ever tried to warmup in 100F temps and maintain your performance?

I was there at the meet and it really was 100 degrees in Sacramento (and the fact that almost 10,000 people still turned out is something I hope USATF pays attention to) They ran semis and finals in the same afternoon in the same 100F. Ash had gotten clear of the field and he would have won by a lot probably, but he just didn't make one of the hurdles.

He could have been run down by the heat and his semi effort. You just don't recover as well when it's that hot.

His 12.99 in the semis was with a legal wind and is the fastest time in the world by a lot. He will certainly get a bunch of Diamond League shots off that.[/quote]

Coach D gives his little charges Popsicle breaks during warm ups on toasty days. And he doesn't have his munchkins actually run then, they play slip and slides.

And by the way the no sprint school just produced a 110 hurdle national champion, making coach D**ch's day!
