Lolo Jones’ hasty departure after her disappointing fifth place finish created a stir at the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships last weekend.

That, and the scorching heat, should not overshadow the best track and field meet ever held in Iowa.

Four American records were set over the weekend at the Drake Stadium. There were eight world leading marks for 2013 set and 18 Drake stadium records broken in one weekend.

All of which culminated to a remarkable weekend of athletics in Des Moines.
