As always, you can follow this website for your event updates and results or log onto social media for feedback from the track facility. You can also follow the results through LancerTiming.com (see the Live Results link at the top of the page).
However, you can watch the webstream through the Ivy League Digital Network – you can sign up for a day pass for $9.95 to watch 24 hours worth of action on the website, but we recommend you follow Indoor Heps instead. From what we have heard, former Cornell coach and Letsrun.com co-founder Robert Johnson will be providing commentary on the webstream. He knows his distance running so it should be a good, informative session. The webstream should start at 11:55am, so be sure you have enough time to sign up and get your viewing setup ready.
So, who’s ready?
11:24am update – the first flight of the men’s shot put is done. Princeton’s Chris Cook – the #1 seed – has the best performance of that flight, with a distance of 17.09 meters (56-00 3/4). He has about 6 inches on the next competitor
11:35am update – the heptathlon hurdles portion is done. Cornell’s Austin Jamerson ran the fastest time in the field – 8.26 – to jump ahead of Princeton’s Jake Scinto in the overall event standings. Jamerson sits in the lead with 4012 points to Scinto’s 3904 points after 5 events. Meanwhile, the women’s high jump bar is set at 1.64m/5-04 1/2
