The women's 400 meters saw Natasha Hastings go out very fast, and as the field hit the last 50 meters, the race looked to be in slow motion. Quanara Hayes ran a superb race, finishing first in 49.72, showing her talent and how fast she is running fit and healthy. In second, Phyliss Francis ran 49.96 for second and Kendell Ellis ran by Natasha Hastings, taking third at 50.00 to 50.14.
The women's Long Jump showed how talented of a group we have here, with Tiana Bartoletta, 2016 Olympic champ, and Brittney Reese, six time World Champ. In Sacramento, Bartoletta had 7.01m, 7.01m and 7.05m on her last jump. Reese got to 6.98m, but has leaped 7.13m this season.
We spoke on the 1,500 meters already, with Jenny Simpson showing her talent with a fine win and a fast last lap of 60.4. Robbie Andrews kept his cool, and ran down the field, with a 52.2 last 400 meters to win a tactical 1,500 meters.
