Live Blogging from the adidas Track Classic Saturday, May 16 4pm-7pm PT

(Ed. Note: co-founder and steeplechaser Ann Gaffigan will be at the Home Depot Center today using some cool new technology to live blog from the adidas Track Classic.  Followers can comment, interact, and get lots of behind-the-scenes commentary so if you’re a T&F fan, don’t miss this coverage).

I will be live-blogging (below) from the adidas Track Classic at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA, TODAY (Saturday, May 16) from 4pm-7pm Pacific!

This meet is stuffed full with great competition.

There are three women’s American Records that have a good chance of getting broken:

1) Beijing Silver Medalist Jenn Stucynski’s 4.92m (16′ 1 3/4″) AR in the Pole Vault, which she may break herself.

2) Beijing Bronze Medalist (10,000m) Shalane Flanagan’s 14:44.80 AR in the 5000m, which she could break herself, provided it is not too hot in Carson at race time (6:32 PM).

3) Colorado Senior Jenny Barringer’s 9:22.26 AR in the 3000m Steeplechase, which Anna Willard could threaten if she is pushed by Lindsey Anderson.

No less exciting than the possibility of records being broken is the head-to-head competition between star athletes:

1) Allyson Felix vs. Sanya Richards in the 200m: Watch Olympian Dee Dee Trotter preview this “hot event” and talk about the competitive rivalry between these two world-class athletes:

2) The 100m: This race is stocked with Olympians. Beijing 4th, 5th and 8th-placers Lauryn Williams, Muna Lee and Torri Edwards, respectively will be joined by Carmelita Jeter, who has run 10.96 this year, ranking her #2 in the world this year behind only Kerron Stewart of Jamaica. Look for Williams to avenge her disappointment at the Olympics and challenge Jeter, with possible surprises from Lee, Edwards and Marshevet Hooker.

3) The Steeplechase: Anna Willard has been dominating 1-mile races so far this season, defeating Shalane Flanagan in the B.A.A. Mile last month. Unlike Anderson, who has steepled twice this season (her best time so far being 9:35.30 at Mt. SAC in April), Willard will be debuting today. Both athletes have been looking very strong, so this will be one of the most exciting races to watch and the winner may threaten the American Record (see #3 above).

Tune in and watch my live updates below starting at 4pm PT! I will be posting polls and letting you all about the action on the track and in the stands as the meet goes on. You can also catch two hours of live coverage of the meet from 5pm-7pm PST on ESPN2. See the meet schedule below the live blog window below.
