Y/N: Will Ben Blankenship and/or Aaron Studt finish in the top three in their respective events at the NACAC U-23 meet?
University of Minnesota track stars Aaron Studt and Ben Blankenship were chosen to represent the United States at the 2010 NACAC Under-23 Track and Field Championships this weekend. The NACAC U-23 meet is held every two years among the 32 member nations of the North America, Central America and Caribbean Athletic Association. This year, the event is being held July 9-11 in Miramar, Florida.
Let us know how the two Gophers will fare this weekend with this question…
Aaron Studt is a two-time All-American with the Gophers and has a shot put best of 63-6 1/4. He was a redshirt outdoors in 2010 and will return to the Gophers for his senior year in 2011.
Ben Blankenship broke school records in the mile and 1500 running 3:57 and 3:39. He was an All-American and Big Ten Conference Champion.

My answer: No
The fantasy contest question from last week was: Will Patrick Smyth or Josh Moen finish in the top four at the USA Men's 10k Championship at Peachtree? The answer was no. Josh Moen finished in tenth place and Patrick Smyth finished fifteenth. Only eight contestants were able to predict the result and answer correctly this week.
