Pennsylvania's Olympic Viewing Guide and Results - Not the plan for Fountain and Whiting

 

On Day One of T&F, Friday August 3, 2008 Olympic Silver Medalist and Central Dauphin East grad Hyleas Fountain started her quest for another medal in 2012. She began the day with a PR in the 100 Hurdles, going 12.70 and finishing the event in a solid position. And she remained in good shape on the high jump, when she cleared 6-01.25. But her problems began with a sub-par shot put where she recorded a mark of 39-04. She finished the first day with a season-best in the 200, going 23.64. However, she ended the day just five points out of Bronze, sitting in 5th position. On Day Two, her opening long jump best of 19-10.25 was not going to move her up the ranks. And a javelin toss of just 70-10.50 after two opening fouls left her out of the running. Fountain had thrown over 132 this season. She grabbed her shoulder after the first throw, and reports indicate that the shoulder affected all three throws.. She scratched the final event, the 800, because of lower back pain. She had 5,084 points after six events, but the official result is Did Not Finish.

 

Also on Friday, Central Dauphin grad Ryan Whiting took care of business during the morning session and advanced to the evening final with a best shot put of 68-2, which put him in 4th place. Twelve advance, and the first three throws of the final determine the final eight that will earn three more throws for determining the medals. Whiting's final effort of 67-08.50 (20.64m) was just five centimeters shy of the eighth and final spot.


On Saturday, Olympic rookie Trevor Barron took to the world-class competition in the 20K Racewalk. He would finish in 26th in 1:22.46, exactly four minutes behind the gold medal winner. There were 56 qualifiers for the event.

 

 

This is a viewing guide that we created for the Olympic track & field events. The schedule notes the live (online) time schedule, the projected NBC television air time, and the Pennsylvania athletes involved.

For our purposes, Pennsylvanians include those who went to high school in the state. We have only listed the Keystone Staters competing for the preliminary heats; the other rounds will be updated daily as the qualifiers are known.

All times are in Eastern Standard Time.

    Whiting finishes 9th.
  • PTXC / 2 Years Ago
    5 centimeters from earning another three throws...
  • JimDillner / 2 Years Ago
    Hyleas Fountain would have been respectable in the 100 hurdles as an individual event. Too bad about the javelin. NBC gave her no coverage from what I saw...
  • sverige55 / 2 Years Ago
    You're right Jim, nothing.
