Australia clocks 9:17.56 for second at Penn Relays

Flame athletes Sean Wroe, Lachlan Renshaw, Jeff Riseley and Ryan Gregson have this morning combined for second in the Men’s USA v the World Distance Medley Relay at the time honoured Penn Relays at the historic Franklin Field, Pennsylvania.

Stopping the clock at 9:17.56, the Australian Flame quartet were narrowly edged out by Morocco(9:17.48), with the bronze medal won by America Red, led by Bernard Lagat, in a time of 9:18.09.

Heading out strong first was a returning Gregson, who across1200m clocked 2:28.66. His first competitive hit out since being forced to withdraw from the Commonwealth Games with a stress fracture, the Australian 1500m record holder passed the baton to the dual Commonwealth Games medallist Wroe (400m – 45.95) for one hot lap.

Lachlan Renshaw ran the penultimate 800m leg in a time of 1:46.29, before the Australian 1500m champion Riseley set out for one mile (1600m).

In the perfect position heading into the bell lap, Riseley trailed only America Red by less than a metre. A late surge by Morocco ensured a sprint finish, with Riseley unable to push past the Continental Cup 1500m champion in Amine Laalou as he and his North African nation edged out Australia by an inch.

In other Penn Relays highlights this weekend, Jamaica, led by Asafa Powell, won the Men’s USA v the World 4x100m relay event, whilst local favourite Allyson Felix aided two American triumphs in the Women’s USA v the World 4x100m relay and 4x400m relay.

Powell was joined on the track by Michael Frater, Nesta Carter and anchor Steve Mullings, with the quartet combining for 38.33, the fastest time to date in 2011. Felix and her 4x100m relay team clocked a new meet record of 42.28 to take America’s winning streak in the event to seven years.

The oldest and most traditional event on the U.S track and field calendar, the Penn Relays have been held in Pennsylvania for 117 years with competition this weekend concluding Sunday afternoon U.S time (Monday morning AEST).

Australia’s international charge now moves to Shizuoka (JPN) as eight athletes get set to take to the track or field on Tuesday, May 3.

Returning to the blocks after a 11.27 (w: +2.6) 100m dash to win in Hiroshima (JPN) on Friday, Melissa Breen will start the women’s 200m in fine form. Joining her in the Land of the Rising Sun are Matt Davies (200m), Linda Allen (long jump), Jessica Penney (long jump), Kevin Moore (400m),James Gurr (800m), Brendan Cole (400m hurdles) and Lauren Boden (400m hurdles).

Americans blame baton change for relay defeat

Sunday, 01 May 2011

American Shawn Crawford, the 2004 Olympic 200m gold medallist, wants to take the blame for losing to Jamaica in the USA vs The World men's 4x100m at Penn Relays on Saturday (April 30).

"My stick with Doc wasn't clean. I don't like losing, my handoff could have been smoother, and I kind of have to take the blame. If our handoffs had been smoother and cleaner, we would have been up there," said Crawford.

Crawford's USA Blue, which was led off by Justin Gatlin, Darvis Patton, Crawford to Ivory Williams on anchor recorded 38.66 seconds for third behind Jamaica 38.33 and USA Red 38.43.

"Every time I come here, the fans come and want to see a show. This is one of the most exciting places to run in the United States. They are going to be clapping and cheering to win, and they'll be booing and whoop, whooping if you're in last," concluded Crawford.

Mike Rodgers, who anchored the USA Red, which had Walter Dix, Wallace Spearmon and Trell Krimmons, also blamed bad baton passes for their defeat.

"I felt like my leg was good, we didn't have it in the passes and that was the race," Rodgers said.

Ivory Williams believes they will get back at Jamaica.
"One day doesn't prove anything. But I think we all need to stick together to work the relays," he said.

Jamaica's Michael Frater believes their opponents were just talking, so they just want to show them it's serious business.

"The guys from all the different teams were out there talking. This is a world championship year, and the first big meet. We wanted to show we are ready to compete.

Powell, who ran the unusual opening leg for Jamaica, said his coach always told him if he start, it would be hard to catch them.

"Over the years, my coach has been telling me that if I led off it would be a different race and it would be hard for people to catch us."

In 2010, Usain Bolt-anchored Racers Track Club team, representing Jamaica Gold, also left the Americans disgruntled after their Penn Relays 4x100m 37.90 record win.

Then, Crawford was told the post race press conference, "I hate losing, and I hate losing to Jamaica."

Like this year, he blamed the team's defeat on the handoff, even though Jamaica was far from full-strength ... as Asafa Powell did not run while Nesta Carter ran on the other team.

"I'm tired of being plagued by messed-up handoffs. We're better than that, but it seems like the last four years, we're not better than that," Crawford said then.

Also in 2010, Michael Rodgers was also upset, but mainly because Jamaica broke their Penn Relays record in their backyard.

"This is the first time I've lost to Jamaica, and they broke our (Penn Relays) record. And they did it on home soil. How would you like it if somebody came in your house and beat you?" he questioned as his reason for being upset.
