Sports Illustrated: Faster Higher Stronger

Greer, however, threw only 241 feet in 1999, 20 feet less than before his injury; it took him another full season to reach his presurgery distance. "A guy like Trey, an Olympic-level athlete, he's never babied himself in his life," says Greer. "When the time comes, he's going to let it go." That time will be postponed as long as possible. "I hope it's in London," says Sategna. The goal is for Hardee to make the U.S. team primarily on the strength of his other nine events and not have to throw the javelin all out at the trials. U.S. track Olympians must qualify at the trials. Sategna says Hardee has recently thrown the javelin more than 165 feet with a short approach, which would be plenty sufficient to earn a spot in the top three. But qualifying is a particularly chancy proposition in the decathlon, with so many events in which things can go wrong. "Odds are, something will happen to one of them," says Sategna of the three favorites. "It's a shame, but that's the way we do it."

Paralympian to Apollo Middle students: Say 'no' to underage drinking

The laughter and cheers of more than 400 students echoed across the auditorium of Apollo Middle School on Monday during a "Say-'No'-to-Underage-Drinking" presentation, complete with a motivational speech by a champion paralympic swimmer. Mallory Weggemann, 23, of Eagan, Minn., is a member of the U.S. Paralympics National Team. Complications from an epidural injection she received to help treat back pain in 2008 left her paralyzed from the waist down, she said. Today, she's a competitive swimmer who has broken world records and won gold medals.

Jeremy Campbell sets world record in discus F44/42

MANCHESTER, England — After Tuesday’s (22 May) Athletics portion of the BT Paralympic World Cup, Great Britain sits atop the standings with 40 points, followed by the Americas (30), Rest of the World (20) and Europe (10). The British delegation was led by sprinter Graeme Ballard, who became a crowd favourite during the first race of the day when he set a new world record in the 100m T36 sprint with a time of 11.98. He then later won the 200m with a mark of 25.12. “My priority today was to run my race and the best I could,” Ballard said, more than satisfied with his results.

Molding Clay into Gold

APU alumnus Bryan Clay heads to London this summer with one goal: to become the first decathlete in Olympic history to medal three times. The 100-meter dash, long jump, shot put, high jump, 400 meters, 110-meter hurdles, discus throw, pole vault, javelin throw and 1500 meters. These may sound like the events of an entire track meet for some but not for the world’s greatest athlete. These factors encompass the lineup for a single track and field event, the Decathlon. No decathlete in Olympic history has medaled three times in the grueling two-day event. At this year’s Olympic Games in London, he has the opportunity to cement his name in Olympic lore by taking home another medal. “It would be a huge honor for me because I grew up watching the people before me try to do it,” said Bryan Clay, Azusa Pacific University alumnus. “Some of the greats have tried and haven’t been able to so for me, if I could do it, that would be huge.” At 32 years old, reigning decathlon champion Bryan Clay, currently has two medals to his name. In 2004 he took home the silver medal in the Athens Olympic Games. At the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, Clay won the title of “World’s Greatest Athlete” by placing first in the decathlon.
