Boston Herald fires first shot in M100 Leland McPhie coverage

Look who's watching us!

Look who’s watching us!

Leland McPhie better pace himself. Besides being entered in four events at Boston nationals, the newly minted M100 will have to navigate interview requests. The first to go live was in the Boston Herald, whose story quotes Leland as saying: “I haven’t been training too much. I’m hoping to do four events. Two of them I haven’t done before, but my coach (Mark Cleary) wants me to do it. I’ll be the only one in my age group and I can get points for the club. I’m a team player.” When it was suggested to McPhie that his versatility might have transferred to success in the decathlon, he said, “No, (it’s) too much work.” More than 920 are entered at the Reggie, and results from Day 1 should start appearing around here soon. Many media outlets are covering the three-day meet, including Al Jazeera America. An Al Jazeera field producer based in New York City contacted me, and she’ll be roaming the Reggie. Best of luck to all!

    I don’t know who’s in charge of posting results, but a friend texted me that Leland won the WT and super weight today. But no records set.

    Congrats Leland. Strange- there must be a timing company- why is this information not listed on the USATF site? What year are we in? No reason for results not to be linked to a timing company. It is not being hand timed.

    San Diego’s Leland McPhie no-heighted at Boston nationals, missing a chance to become the oldest WR-holder in the high jump. But since he tried three times at 0.62 meters (2 feet and a fraction), he qualifies as the oldest high jumper in track history:

    Is that really “the spirit of the competition?”
