The Bowerman down to two lists of three

July 13, 2010

The Bowerman finalists have been pared to three men and three women.

The 10-person Bowerman Advisory Board, in conjunction with the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA), made the announcements. The Bowerman is the highest award given to collegiate track and field competitors in the United States.

The men’s finalists, announced Tuesday, are all seniors: Ashton Eaton and Andrew Wheating of Oregon, plus Ryan Whiting of Arizona State.

Women’s finalists, announced Monday, also are all seniors: Virginia Tech’s Queen Harrison, Iowa State’s Lisa Koll and Texas-El Paso’s Blessing Okagbare.

Finalists were chosen based on performances throughout the 2010 indoor and outdoor seasons. Only performances through the conclusion of the NCAA Outdoor competition were considered.

The Bowerman Voters will receive ballots listing each of the finalists and must rank them by first, second and third choice. First-place votes will receive three points, second place will notch two, and third will receive one point. The finalist with the highest point total will be declared the winner.

The Bowerman Voters consist of:

  • The Bowerman Advisory Board, media personnel, statisticians, collegiate administrators
  • Galen Rupp, 2009 men’s winner of The Bowerman
  • Jenny Barringer, 2009 women’s winner of The Bowerman
  • Online voting by the public will constitute one collective vote (ranking of choices will be made by order of total single votes)
  • Online voting by USTFCCCA members will constitute one collective vote (ranking of choices will be made by order of total single votes)
Ashton Eaton

Ashton Eaton

Paper balloting will conclude in August while online voting will begin in the coming weeks and will last until late August. Winners will be announced in a ceremony at the USTFCCCA Convention on Dec. 15 at San Antonio, Texas.

Eaton, from Bend, Ore., won his second consecutive NCAA Indoor heptathlon title and a third straight NCAA Outdoor decathlon championship. His title-winning score of 6,499 indoors broke the world record set 17 years earlier by Dan O’Brien. Outdoors, he topped 8,150 points three times, setting an NCAA Championships meet record. 

Andrew Wheating

Andrew Wheating

Wheating, from Norwich, Vt., won NCAA outdoor crowns in the 800 and 1,500, becoming the fourth overall and first to accomplish the double win since 1984. Wheating also defended his outdoor 800-meter national crown with the win, the first American to do so since 1994. In the 1,500, Wheating led Oregon to a 1-2-3 national sweep. At the NCAA Indoor, Wheating anchored the distance medley relay to a second straight national title and was national runner-up in the 800.

Ryan Whiting

Ryan Whiting

Whiting, from Harrisburg, Pa., produced a third straight NCAA Indoor crown with the shot put and a second-consecutive outdoor title. In addition, Whiting won his first NCAA crown with the discus and is only one of 11 to have notched national crowns with the shot and discus in the same championship. At the outdoor championships, Whiting’s final toss of 72-1 (21.97 meters) moved him into a tie for second on the all-time collegiate list and just three centimeters shy of the collegiate record. Overall, Whiting marked throws of over 70 feet on eight occasions during the year –- an all-time collegiate best. Whiting was also undefeated among collegians with the shot in 2010.

Queen Harrison

Queen Harrison

Harrision, a native of Richmond, Va., became the first female in NCAA history to win both 100- and 400-meter hurdle national titles. In addition, Harrison won the NCAA indoor crown in the 60-meter hurdles. She recorded the 2010 collegiate-best times in all three hurdle events spanning the indoor and outdoor seasons and went undefeated in every finals of those events. Harrison notched the fourth-best, all-time collegiate best 100-meter hurdle time in winning the Penn Relays title (12.61).

Lisa Koll

Lisa Koll

Koll, out of Fort Dodge, Iowa, swept NCAA crowns in the 5,000 and 10,000 meters at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, only the fourth female ever to do so. Koll won the 10k by over 23 seconds to claim her second national title in the event, while her 30-second victory in the 5,000 paired with her 2010 NCAA indoor title at the same distance. Koll opened the outdoor season with a collegiate record, clocking 31:18.07 in the 10k at the Stanford Invitational. In individual races, Koll only lost to a collegian once during the season.

Blessing Okagbare

Blessing Okagbare

Okagbare, from Umuahi, Nigeria, notched NCAA Outdoor crowns in the 100 meters and long jump, becoming the first in collegiate history to pull off such a feat. Indoors, Okagbare won national titles in the 60 and long jump, twice bettering the NCAA long-jump record. Okagbare was undefeated in all sprint and jump finals during the season and anchored the UTEP 4×100 to the NCAA Championships semifinals.

Lexington native Tyson Gay has been named USA Track & Field’s Athlete of the Week for a second time this season.

The former Lafayette High School and University of Arkansas standout lowered his own American record in the 100-meter dash from 9.71 seconds to 9.69 in Sunday in China at the Shanghai Golden Grand Prix. Gay’s previous record came in last month’s World Championships at Berlin, where he placed second to Jamaica’s Usain Bolt.

Gay’s 9.69 ties Bolt’s winning time from the 2008 Beijing Olympics, matching the second-fastest “legal” time ever. Gay’s race Sunday had the maximum allowable wind, 2 meters per second (about 4 1/2 mph).

Gay also had the fastest 200 meters of the week by an American, 20.21, Tuesday at Szczecin, Poland.

Former University of Kentucky standout and reigning world champion Dwight Phillips had the best long jump by an American during the week, 27 feet, 5 1/4 inches.

Former Wildcat Phillips is USATF Athlete of Week

June 9, 2009

Former University of Kentucky standout Dwight Phillips was named Tuesday as USA Track & Field’s Athlete of the Week.

Dwight Phillips

Dwight Phillips

Phillips notched the eighth-best outdoor mark ever in the men’s long jump at Sunday’s Nike Prefontaine Classic, 28 feet, 8 1/4 inches, at Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore.

Phillips, 31, arrived at UK in 1997. His 400-meter time of 46.80 that season still stands as the Wildcats’ freshman record. He also competed in 1998 before transferring to Arizona State, following Darryl Anderson when the UK sprints coach was hired there.

Since then, Phillips has become a two-time World Outdoor champion in the long jump, as well as the 2004 Olympic gold-medalist. Sunday’s mark ties Phillips with Larry Myricks and Erick Walder for eighth on the all-time list of jumps, and fifth on the all-time list of performers. It was the longest jump in the world since Mike Powell’s world-record 29-4 1/2 in 1991.

Reese Hoffa

Also at Eugene, Louisville native Reese Hoffa won the shot put with the world’s best performance of the season, 71 feet, 10 inches.

Colorado’s Jenny Barringer, the national record-holder in the steeplechase, became the third American ever to break four minutes in the women’s 1,500 meters. Her time at Eugene, 3:59.90, is a collegiate record.

USA Track & Field Athlete of the Week: Tyson Gay

The third-fastest 200-meter dash of all time makes Tyson Gay the USA Track & Field choice for athlete of the week.

From Tyson Gay's facebook

From Tyson Gay's facebook photo gallery

Gay, a Lafayette High School graduate who later starred for Arkansas, uncorked a 19.58-second 200 Saturday at the Reebok Grand Prix, in New York’s Icahn Stadium. Only a pair of Olympic champions have ever run faster: Michael Johnson (19.32) and Usain Bolt (19.30).

Gay swept the 2007 World Championships in the 100 and 200 meters, and also ran on the gold-medal 4-by-100 relay.

After winning the 100 in American-record time at last year’s U.S. Olympic Trials, Gay suffered a severe hamstring injury during preliminaries of the 200. He went on to run the 200 at the Beijing Olympics, but the missed practice time left him far off his usual form. A dropped baton in the 4-by-100 put a disappointing end to his Olympic experience.

Saturday’s result, his first 200 since the Olympics, means Gay now has the third- and fourth-fastest 200s ever. No. 4 is 19.62, his winning effort at the 2007 USA Outdoor Championships.

Saturday’s runner-up, Gay’s former training partner and Arkansas teammate Wallace Spearmon, finished in 19.98. Former LSU standout Xavier Carter was third in 20.27.

“It made me very, very happy; 19.5 had been one of the goals I had, but to do that in the first race is very pleasing,” Gay told reporters. “I wanted to work on my reaction and my start. Then I just ran. I ran for my life. When I came toward the finish line, I got kind of tight and I just wanted to bring it on in. I tried to push all the way through, just to see where my body is at.”

Several of the week’s leading national marks were turned in on Louisville’s Cardinal Park facility, site of the NCAA Mideast Regional.

Cory Thorne

Cory Thorne

Louisville’s Cory Thorne had the fastest 3,000-meter steeplechase of the week (8:36.98).

Three winners in men’s field events ranked No. 1 for the week: Kentucky’s Rashaud Scott in the discus (216-2); LSU’s Walter Henning in the hammer throw (231-6), and Arkansas’ Mychael Stewart in the long jump (25-10 3/4).

And two of the women’s field event champions at Louisville led the nation: Purdue’s Kara Patterson in the javelin (192-1), and Indiana State’s Lauren Martin in the triple jump (44-4 3/4).
