Claudia Saunders - 2:00.47 PR at Meeting de Paris

Princeton HS/Stanford U. standout, Claudia Saunders, just ran a PR 2:00.47 for 11th at the Meeting de Paris IAAF Diamond League meet. She runs for FRANCE, now.

I wonder how many others have her range of capabilities, INCLUDING a 10' pole vault PR!

She was heading for 1:58 through 600m(1:28.5) but really struggled down the homestretch. Good to see her back in top form - seems just a matter of time before she blows thru 2:00.

2011 D1 winner in XC, as I recall. Ran a very patient race. Running for France now? Did not know that.

Running for France(mother is French) makes sense - much easier road to Olympics/World Championships. That said, France screwed her in 2016. She had the Olympic "A" standard, but then France instituted a tougher standard of their own(I believe it was 2-flat) that she did not have, thereby excluding her from their Rio team. Don't know if that was specifically targeted at her, but I know it would have pissed me off.
