Remember: We’re not just narrowing the scope to sprints, hurdles, jumps, throws and endurance events. We’re breaking it down even further by specific events within those areas. For example, two-time NCAA championship coach Petros Kyprianou of Georgia will discuss the finer points of the triple jump that helped him develop Keturah Orji into one of the finest three-phasers in American history, while USTFCCCA Coaches Hall of Famer Amy Deem of Miami (Fla.) will opine on the 100 Meter Hurdles, an event in which the Hurricanes won four national titles between 1993 and 1999 (including three in a row by Gillian Russell) – just to name a few different topics.
