Caster Semenya ran the fastest 800m heats time of her career on Friday as she stormed into pole position at the national championships in Pretoria. Semenya clocked 1min 58.92sec — more than 10 seconds quicker than her nearest rivals on a hot morning. She qualified for Saturday’s final‚ and although there’s no semifinal round here as she has at top international competitions‚ she still has the 1500m final to run on Friday night.
Orazio Cremona picked up his seventh South African shot-put crown in the burning heat of the Pretoria sun on Friday as he achieved the fourth-best throw of his career. Cremona’s 20.71m made him the runaway leader ahead of veteran Burger Lambrechts‚ second with 18.67. But the drama he’s endured over his late inclusion — or is it omission — from the Commonwealth Games team going to Australia next month made his performance all the more sweeter.
Clarence Munyai rocked the Tuks stadium to its foundations as he broke Wayde van Niekerk’s 200m South African record at the national championships on Friday afternoon. He clocked an incredible 19.69sec — the 10th fastest in the world ever — as he knocked 0.15 off the 19.84 mark Van Niekerk set last year. Munyai had a legal wind of 1.5mps at his back. Munyai‚ 20‚ said afterwards he wasn’t expecting to go that fast.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
