Assault Charge Brought Against Pistorius

Oscar Pistorius -- aka The Blade Runner -- has been accused of assaulting a young woman attending a party thrown by the South African athlete. (Pistorius claims the 19-year-old woman injured herself by kicking a door.) If the accusations prove to be true, I can only hope things didn't go down like this:

If You Want to Run Fast and Jump Over Stuff Good, Come to Ohio

There are eighteen spots on the US National Team in events that involve hurdling. This past weekend, four of the spots on the Berlin 2009 team went to athletes whose formative years -- HS and/or college -- were spent in the great state of Ohio. Olympic Silver Medalist David Payne won the 110H, while Bridget Franek took third in the Women's Steeplechase. On the men's side, Josh McAdams and Dan Huling went 1-2. If there was an Old Timey Equestrian Steeplechase, I'm sure horses from Ohio would have cleaned up as well.

Other Top Three finishes were collected by Jessica Beard (3rd, 400m); Angela Bizzarri (3rd, 5000m); Katie McGregor (3rd, 10000m); AG Kruger (1st, Hammer); Dan Taylor (2nd, Shot); and, Kim Kreiner (3rd, Javelin), thus proving once again that Ohio is better than everyone else at everything.

LTOB-Spawned Web Promos Dropping on,

Hey, so guess what: we have been involved in a series of web videos produced in conjunction with Saucony and KIMbia Athletics, detailing the KIMbia guys' preparations for Boston -- which, if you didn't know, is this Monday. The videos are posting to each day between now and Monday, and should drop as a block on the Saucony site sometime tomorrow. (Hint: if you're torn, go to the Saucony site so they think "Oh wow, a lot of people are coming to look at these videos. We should give these guys more money to make more videos for us!") Video #1 after the jump.

Think of that first video as the 30-second iTunes preview of your favorite James Blunt song: it's just a taste. So, don't forget to check out (or for the rest of the videos!
