>Who is Where This Weekend

>With the college season starting up, I began to wonder which top athletes would be running where this weekend. So I came up with a list of the five “major players” in each event based on PR and place at the this year’s NCAA Indoor and last year’s NCAA Outdoor championships, and looked it up.

In many cases the athletes are idle, because these are the athletes whose seasons are going to last well into June. In other cases, meet start lists are not yet available. So keep your eyes here and I’ll update as the weekend goes along.

Sorry ladies, the idea only occurred to me last night and I’ve not had time to get your data together. I only have the men here. Next week, I promise.
