Brigham Young’s Tiffany Lott set a collegiate record of 7.30 seconds in the 55-meter hurdles en route to winning the pentathlon at the Western Athletic Conference Indoor Track and Field Championships in Colorado Springs, Colo. Lott broke the mark of 7.34 set by Florida’s Michelle Freeman in 1992. Lott’s time is believed to be a world best; there is no official world record. Lott scored a collegiate-record 4,301 points.
Frenchman Luc Alphand bounced back from a disappointing performance at last week’s World Championships by beating Hermann Maier of Austria by more than half a second in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, for his second straight super giant slalom win. It gave him the overall World Cup lead.
