NCAA Indoor Recap 15/01/12

ncaaindoor

This week saw the start of the Indoor track season proper. Often more low-key than its next door neighbours, Cross Country and Outdoor Track, it provides an excellent and exciting showcase of some the specialist track athletes and how they have wintered.

This weekend’s action was dominated by the guys over 1000m. Chris O’Hare and Andy Heyes of Tulsa ran 2:24 and 2:26 respectively on a 200m flat track at Kansas State. Before Christmas we failed to alert you that Kris Gauson (now graduated from Butler) ran unattached to win the Indiana Hoosier meet with a 2:21 time with Butler freshman Tom Curr not far behind in 2:24, this time on a banked track. These are all excellent times and provide an intriguing insight to just how quick of all them will run over the mile this season. Kris Gauson last year was the bridesmaid of the NCAA miling fraternity, as despite breaking the elusive 4 minute barrier he still missed out on National qualification. But the Scottish athlete has seemingly taken well to his post-collegiate training and that mile PB looks ready for serious revision.  His 4:06 mile last week was clearly not a true indication of what is to come. All look capable of going under 4 minutes. Just how many Brits could we have this year sub 4?

On the women’s side, most of the bigger names have yet to make their indoor debut for 2012.

Below, we have collated results from the various meets involving British and Irish athletes. Get in touch with us through our contact form if (where) we have made glaring omissions.
