Men's 600m 


When:
8:15 PM ET
Why: Brannon Kidder versus Shaquille Walker. The new Brooks Beasts athletes will go head-to-head for the second weekend in a row following Kidder's impressive Millrose Games 1K victory. The two are pretty evenly matched in terms of PBs in the 600m (1:16.98 and 1:17.32) and 800m (1:45.58 and 1:44.99), though Walker does have 46.00 speed outside of a relay.

Men's Mile


When: 9 PM ET
Why: It's an Olympic showdown between Robby Andrews and Andrew Wheating, plus a slew of other talented guys. Andrews will be looking to better his 3:57 season best set in the Wanamaker Mile. The 2016 Olympian will be challenged by two-time Olympian Wheating, Daniel Winn, Mac Fleet, and Sam Penzenstadler. Wheating is coming of a 2:20 1K victory in Boston and just broke ties with the Oregon Track Club Elite. FloTrack caught up with Wheating to talk about his new direction in training:



Watch out for Penzenstadler. He kicked down Andrews on the anchor leg of a 4x8 at the Armory Invitational earlier this year.

Women's 1000m


When
: 7:55 PM ET
Why: Former Villanova great Stephanie Schappert will run her first 1K since 2015. The Hoka One One NJNYTC athlete ran big personal bests in her first year as a pro in 2016 (2:03 and 4:09) and went against talents like Rolanda Bell, Stephanie Herrick, and Brigitte Mania.

Women's Mile


When:
9:10 PM ET
Why: Justine Fedronic is coming off a 2:01.36 fourth-place personal best in the insanely fast Millrose Games 800m. The former Stanford All-American and French Olympian has not raced a mile since her 4:39 PB set in 2014. Considering she broke 2:00 for the first time last summer and ran a massive indoor best last weekend, Fedronic is on the right track to set another PB this Saturday. She'll go toe-to-toe with Rolanda Bell (Also entered in the 1000m), who ran a five second PB of 4:38 at the New Balance Indoor Games and a nine second PB in the 3K (9:09) at the Armory Invite.

Texas sprinter Teahna Daniels wasted no time in becoming the fastest woman in Big 12 history. Less than two months into her NCAA career, back in 2016, Daniels won the 60m NCAA crown in 7.11 — the fastest ever by a freshman and then the fourth-best performance in collegiate history. She hadn’t even won a Big 12 title yet, but it was clear that the Longhorn freshman would soon dominate the conference.
