Rewriting on Day 1
With this little downtime before we start the evening distance races, I got the chance to review some of the results from today and compare them with what we have in the record books (Heps meet and Heps all-time listings).
For the events where today was semifinals only, I only compared the performances with the Heps meet lists as an athlete can always improve their mark in the finals, which would be only 1 entry in the all-time listings while they can two in the meet listing.
- 100m Hurdles – Harvard’s Autumne Frankin’s time of 13.87 is the 6th best in meet history
- 400m – Cornell’s Udeme Akpaete time of 53.39 is tied for the 7th fastest in meet history
- 100m – Columbia’s Ashley Cunningham’s time of 11.67 is the 3rd fastest in meet history
- 400m Hurdles – Cornell’s Tasia Radoslav’s time of 58.74 is the 9th fastest in meet history
- 200m – Akpaete’s time of 23.79 is the 4th fastest in meet history, while Cunningham’s time of 23.99 is tied for the 10th fastest in meet history
- Hammer – Princeton’s Julia Ratcliffe set a new meet record with 223-07
- Long Jump – Columbia’s Nadia Eke’s jump of 19-11 1/2 is the 10th best ALL TIME
- Hammer – Cornell’s Rudy Winkler’s toss of 218-00 is the 5th best in meet history
We still have the 10km finals coming up, so hopefully more rewriting can be done.
