The Mississippi track and field season never fails to deliver thrilling races and exceptional performances. One of the most highly anticipated events is the George Kersh 800m race at the Woody Barnett Invitational.
Featuring the best middle-distance runners in the state, this prestigious event has become a symbol of excellence in Mississippi's track and field scene.
However, this year, the race was unexpectedly canceled due to weather concerns. This has left fans and athletes alike wondering: who would have won the George Kersh 800m if the skies had stayed clear?
In the spirit of competition, we conducted a poll to determine who the voters believe would have come out on top in the now-canceled George Kersh 800m race.
Regardless of the outcome, one thing is certain: Mississippi is home to some truly exceptional middle-distance runners.
Here's to hoping that next year's race goes on without a hitch and provides the thrill we all anticipate from the legendary George Kersh 800m event.
