Brandon Miller Talks About His Fall In 800m Semi Jul 31, 2017

A gigantic hush rippled through the crowd Monday during the first 100 meters of the boys age 15-16 800m semifinal at Rynearson Stadium at Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, Michigan.One of the nation's top athletes in the 800m -- Missouri's Brandon Miller -- was clipped just seconds into the race and fell to the track as the rest of the field barreled ahead. Not curtailed, however, the Ultimate Speed Academy half-miler urged his way back from the deficit and took over the race with 50 meters to go in the first lap. Once silenced, the crowd began to boom with applause as Miller raged through the last 400 meters. Miller finished the field with the fastest overall time of 1:55.74, though it wasn't near what the rising sophomore from John Burroughs High was hoping for in his first heat. Afterward, Miller restated his goal for Wednesday's final: Sub-1:50. Miller will have to run faster than 1:49.42 to break his third-straight world age group record in the 15-year-old division.

Jasmine Moore Wins National Title & Looks Ahead To More Records Aug 1, 2017

By Cory Mull,  MileSplitJasmine Moore wore the orange and black colors of Motor City Track Club on Tuesday inside Eastern Michigan's Rynearson Stadium, and for a moment it seemed as if this was always the way it was supposed to be. Her extended family watched from the stands, as did her temporary coaches and teammates, and no one was too surprised when Moore dominated in the long jump, winning an AAU Junior Olympic Games title for the second time in three years with a mark of 19 feet, 2 inches. But it didn't just happen with the snap of a finger. The journey, in fact, was years in the making.After the family's move from Detroit, Michigan, to Kentucky in 2005, and then ultimately to Texas in 2007, Mooore never got a chance to compete in the region in which her parents, Earl and Trinette, earned success at multiple levels. She was too young. Up until Tuesday, the freshmen and sophomore class record holder in the triple jump never even competed inside the state, which meant that her mother was the family's all-time leader in the long jump with a mark of 19-8.Jasmine finally got her shot on Tuesday -- though, as her mom may attest, she still didn't get the family record. But she made up for it with a title. And on Thursday, Moore will go for an AAU national record of 42-1.75, last achieved in 2000, when she steps to the line for the girls age 15-16 triple jump. Above, watch the feature on Moore, who reflected on the experience of competing for her family's storied track and field team. FULL RESULTS | SIGN UP TO WATCH LIVE | RACE ARCHIVESHow to Watch The 2017 AAU Junior Olympic GamesOn TV: Available on Roku and Apple TV 4 - download the FloSports app now. Streaming: Only on FloTrack with a PRO subscription.

Sabree Brooks demolishes 10yo 100m AAU record Jul 31, 2017

There are certain time barriers in track and field that distinguish the truly remarkable athletes, and serve as time-honored measuring sticks for progress. One of those is the 13-second barrier for a female 100m runner. Sixteen years ago, Bijon Robinson of California set the AAU national championships 10-year-old girls record for 100m at 12.93, an especially outstanding time given her age. Not until today in Ypsilanti, Michigan, at the 2017 AAU Junior Olympic Games could someone crack the time. But Sabree Brooks of Indiana didn't just crack it -- she demolished it, clocking 12.76 to set a new standard for 10-year-old girls in track and field's shortest sprint.SaBree Brooks just broke the AAU National Record for the 10-year-old girls running 12.76!! #AAUJROGames pic.twitter.com/hLgXGeJLA6— MileSplit US (@milesplit) July 31, 2017 "I ran my race and I kept my pace," she said after the prelim win. "I did drive phase for 15 meters and then put my head up."Brooks, who hails from Indianapolis, owned a previous personal best of 13.3. She represented Athletes Lives Network Sports with a red singlet and said in a post-race interview that her favorite colors include red, hot pink, gold, and silver. She ate oatmeal for breakfast this morning.Brooks has competed in track and field since she was seven years old. Later this week, she will contest the 400m and 200m, where she said she hopes to run "a 1:01 or 59 seconds flat, and in the 200m, I want to run a 27 flat or 25 flat."Brooks has another Robinson record to aim for in the 200m; she also set the AAU national championships record in that event in 2001 with a 26.36 effort.The 400m record is just a year old, as Kanai Bey-English of Pennsylvania ran 59.51 last year.
