Congrats to the young man. As of right now, Goodwin has one of the top three jumps in the world going into the Olympics.

That's very nice. How does that affect his summer workouts as a football player at Texas?
Disciplina praesidium civitatis
That's awesome news!
Just showed MG's final jump on TV, winning the long-jump... then NBC showed him throwing his horns up and bowing to the crowd! Way to go Marquise...
Of course he was in Burnt Orange track shorts & tank top with TEXAS in white, block letters.

Saw that too. And he was rocking the burnt orange track gear. Was MG already on the team before that last jump or did the last jump (which took 1st) put him on the team?? If the latter, what a clutch and huge moment for the guy!
@USTFCCCA Marquise Goodwin is the first collegian to win NCAA and Olympic Trials LJ in the same year since 1960.
Daniel, He was 2nd before that last attempt so he was already on the team, but after leading for almost the entire day, it would have been pretty disappointing to finish second I'm sure.
Congrats to Marquise!!!
I hope that he wins the gold!
I missed it. Damn!
"Anybody know how to post videos to Facebook?"
first person to link me video of Goodwin's jumps at the 2012 NCAA Outdoor championships gets an upvote.
Thanks, spider. Props to you for all the T&F stuff. Always enjoy it!
Priorities in order. Excellent....
“Kansas may wind up number one in these polls, but that would be so unfair to Texas...” -- Len Elmore, 2/13/11
Silky... pics will have to do for now!
As for summer workouts, those will be non-existent till he gets back from London... from the ESPN HornsNation page...
"Texas opens fall camp on Aug. 2. Goodwin’s qualifying round in London is Aug. 3. The long jump finals are the following day.
From there, Goodwin will hop on a plane and rejoin his Texas teammates on the practice field.
“He’s been a guy that’s handled both sports very well, and that’s a difficult thing to do,” Texas coach Mack Brown said earlier this month. “Unlike last year, he can get back pretty soon and still have some preseason work before we open up the first ballgame.” "

@FlashGoodwin Slant for TD vs OU as a FR, KO Return for TD vs Ags as a FR, Holiday Bowl star, NCAA track championships*...you've been money!
Major Applewhite @CoachApplewhite
@FlashGoodwin I've watched you work and stay focused for 4 years. Good luck in London.
Good Luck and Hook'em MG.
Video of Marquise's 6th and winning jump... go to 2:07 of the clip, that is unless you want to watch the women's discuss wrap-up!
Stephanie Brown Trafton tops the women's discus field, Reese Hoffa tops the men's shotput field and Marquise Goodwin wins the men's long jump on his final effort to punch their tickets to London.
Atta boy Quise'. IIRC Sanya Richards qualified as well.
Hot Rod, Thanks for the link!
