wolff Posted June 18, 2009 Report Share Posted June 18, 2009 (edited) Curtis Beach(google now)..outta New Mexico, USA Frankly, could be the baddest track MFer since Mathias, who I believe won Oly Gold in decathlon at age 17. First off, he's a skinny kid..6 foot/165..no roids is what I'm saying. I'm at a loss for words to describe how good this guy is. Many veterans of T&F do not really know what to say either. He competes in 10 events. His personal records in these events are off the charts. 100M - 10.99 LJ - 23'7.25" SP - 44-08.00 HJ - 6-09.50 400- 47.96 110H - 14.38 DT - 133-04 PV - 15'6" JT - 155-09 1500/800 - 4:09.48 / 1:52.72 11th event: 200M - 20.94 There are only a few HS track teams is the whole USA who could beet him. I actually, I think it's two. He sweeps many, very many school records in each event. Most of the best High School teams in the States can only beat him in 2 or 3 events. This is not some small school freak going against schools of the deaf. He would have placed 3rd/4th in Texas 5A State. In Texas 5A here's how Beach would do: 100-10.89 Nothing 200-21.52 4th 4 pts 400-47.96 4th 4 pts 800-1:52.72 2nd 8 pts 1600- 4:29.4c Nothing 110 Hurdles- 14.24 Tie 4th 4 pts LJ- 23' 10 1/4 4th 4 pts HJ- 6' 9.5 6th 1 pt SP- 44' 11 Nothing DT- 133 04 Nothing PV - 15' 06 Tie 2nd 8 pts Total 33 pts good for 3rd place At the California State Meet, here's how Beach would've fared: 100: would not have made finals 200: 1st place -10 points 400: 6th place - 1 point 110H: 8th place- 0 points 800: 4th place - 4 points 1500: would not have made finals HJ: 3rd place - 6 points PV: 6th place - 1point LJ: 5th place - 2 points SP: would not have made finals/state DT: would not have made finals/state JT: not competed in CA Beach: 24 points 20 points won state. We are talking Texas 5A(biggest schools) and California(all schools combined) where about 200 kids are getting D1 scholorships for track/field. He's going to Duke.....one of the worst track schools in the history of NCAA T & F. There is a new decathlon coach there, who he likes. Wish he would have gone to Oregon.
