On the race's return to Van Cortlandt Park, seven of the ten qualifiers in 2012 were underclassmen, a theme that is starting to become commonplace at the Northeast Regional Championship. Though six of these seven (more on that in a sec) will be favorites to repeat, these girls know that returning to the Foot Locker finals may be harder this year than in the previous year, as more talent enters the meet and shows no fear in challenging the veterans.

Day three preview – Moscow 2013 With two days of preliminary rounds already in the bag, on Monday the World Championships in Moscow really hits its stride and delivers six finals in rapid succession during the evening session, as well as the first four events of the Heptathlon. That combined events competition may provide even more intrigue and suspense than the Decathlon did over Saturday and Sunday, because unlike the Decathlon there are few if any clear favourites, and leads may shift frequently and dramatically.(via iaaf.org)

This summer would be a great time to lock in at the current $36 annual subscription rate to access subscriber-only content for future years on Milesplit Maryland and Milesplit DC. As the website has continued to increase its level of coverage, it would not be surpising to see another rate hike in the near future and possibly before summer's end (hint).
Through the collaborative efforts of the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), the NCAA and USA Track & Field, an online pole vault skills course has been developed for coaches and athletes and is available for free on the NFHS Coach Education Program Web site at www.nfhslearn.com. The course, “Pole Vault: Successful Skill Development,” is designed to further advance the knowledge of coaches and pole vaulters at all levels of sport – youth, high school and college — by teaching the introductory skills and safety aspects of the pole vault. “This course is designed for both the coach and vaulter,” said Becky Oakes, NFHS director of sports and editor of the NFHS Track and Field Rules Book. “It provides a solid foundation of the skills and techniques of the event. Through the collaborative efforts of the NFHS, NCAA and USATF, this free online course is the first of our continuing efforts to provide sound techniques that will help minimize risk of injury and improve performance for pole vaulting. ‘Pole Vault: Successful Skill Development’ is a ‘must-take’ course for all pole vault coaches, high school student-athletes and their parents.” The NFHS Coach Education Program offers 33 online courses, including the two core courses – “Fundamentals of Coaching” and “First Aid, Health and Safety for Coaches.” The NFHS also offers 14 sport-specific courses and 17 elective courses, including eight that are free. All NFHS Coach Education Program courses are available atwww.nfhslearn.com. (via www.nfhs.org)
