Former Barrington High standout Charlie Ionata and Central grad Clarence Gallop didn't advance to the finals of the hammer throw at the IAAF World Championships, but the two Rhode Islanders did have solid efforts on Thursday afternoon. Ionata had a personal best toss of 69.93 meters (229-05) and Gallop was just off his best with a distance of 65.95m (216-04). MileSplit's national editor Brandon Miles had a chance to talk to both weight-throwers after their preliminary rounds.

One of the top high school track & field athletes from the state of Rhode Island in Hope High School rising senior Quashira McIntosh, also happens to be a native born of the US Virgin Islands (the island of St. Croix to be exact). With that lifelong tie to the island, McIntosh got the opportunity to represent the USVI's on Tuesday at day one of the World Junior Championships in Eugene, Oregon in the prelims of the 100 meter dash. McIntosh did not advance onto the next round, but relished the opportunity to compete on the international stage as well as alongside American high school record holder Kaylin Whitney in the same heat.

"Core" is one of the most overused and misunderstood terms in health and fitness today. The term is so overused it has almost lost its legitimacy, so when my patients say, “I am doing core exercises” I tend to be a little skeptical. The core is not just your abdominals, and core exercises are not just crazy circus tricks on a stability ball. I would like to quickly review this concept of core.
