Your Mid-Day Link Dump

Last night's pro action at the Tyson Invitational saw two American Records. (Spoiler alert: the meet will be on TV on Sunday!)

Yesterday's PSD Bank Meeting in Düsseldorf saw three world-leading times.

The first day of the Russian Championships produced world-leading times in the women's 400 and 800, from a pair of unknowns. Are you suspicious?

Steve Hooker again threatened Bubka's pole vault world record at the "Meeting SEAT" in Paris. Looks like this guy is the real deal.

The IAAF previews tomorrow's Chiba (Japan) Cross Country meet and BW-Bank-Meeting indoor meet.

The recommendation to shit-can the National Relays Program could hurt the Texas Relays, or so says the Austin American-Statesman.

The Eugene Register-Guard interviews Vin Lanana on the Project 30 task force report and the general state of the sport. Ever the optimist, he thinks things are going well.

Scott Bush ruminates on new media and why track & road racing aren't using it.

Olympic high hurdle champ Dayron Robles will sit out the indoor season with a gimpy hamstring.
