  1. Sorry, actually 3rd. If you multiply their average speed (Actual distance ran / time) by 800m, here’s heat#1 adjusted times:
    02:07.27 Bailey Goggans
    02:07.34 Alyssa Brewer
    02:07.77 Charokee Young
    02:10.73 Aziza Ayoub
    02:11.47 Annie Ubbing
    02:15.47 Jessica Gallardo

  2. Too bad for all that the officials botched the start of the women’s 800m. They started them on a one turn stagger instead of two so the outside lanes actually ran a farther distance. Adjusted, Charokee actually takes second. At least they corrected it for the men. Check the replay!
