We are all distance people here Albert. We only understand 800, 1600 and 3200 times.

Real recognize real.

As I understand it, her mark was just 2" shy of the Olympic Trials qualifying standard.

I heard the same at the meet. She has been much more consistent as far as big throws in the discus and I am sure she will have plenty of opportunities to reach that mark sometime this season.

For those distance only people it is equivalent to a 3:57.83 for the MILE (not 1600)
Not bad.

I use the Mercier tables quite a bit and that is a correct conversion for her discus mark. Considering that is about the same time that Drew Hunter has run in the mile, I would think that even the true blue distance fans can appreciate what a fantastic mark that is in the discus.

And she made that throw look so casual! Wow!
