It was agonizingly close for three Indiana athletes Sunday in the USA Track and Field Championships at Sacramento, Calif. All finished fourth, one spot away from qualifying for August’s World Championships in London. Ashley Spencer (Lawrence North) was fourth in the deepest 400-meter hurdles race ever. For the first time, six women were under 54 seconds. The bronze medalist from the Rio Olympics came in with the world’s best time (53.38 seconds) and improved to 53.11 -- the fastest ever for fourth.
INDIANAPOLIS – Care must be taken in invoking the name of Michael Phelps in comparison to any other swimmer. Start there. Still, this scenario is plausible: Carmel’s Drew Kibler, 17, could be the youngest male swimmer since Phelps to be on the U.S. team for the World Championships. Phelps, at 16, swam at the 2001 worlds. Team USA will be decided in the Phillips 66 National Championships, which run Tuesday through Saturday at the Natatorium at IUPUI.
Purdue graduate Dani Bunch produced a huge personal record to finish second — and rank second in the world — in the women’s shot put Saturday in the USA Track and Field Championships at Sacramento, Calif.Top three in each event make the team for August’s World Championships in London. The 26-year-old Bunch, of Mahomet, Ill., took the lead in the fifth of six rounds with a distance of 64 feet, 5 ½ inches — nearly two feet beyond her previous best and then a world leader.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
