What Is This?
Over the next few weeks, Milesplit Maine will be rolling out our athletes of the decade for outdoor track. Fans can vote for who they think is the top athlete in each region. In the end, we will be crowning the top boys & girls track and field athlete in the state of Maine as selected by the fans.
We've selected 32 girls & boys based on the criteria they posted a top time in their event during the decade, or a top 5 performance all-time, or won a state title or won a New England title, or earned All-New England or All-American honors. We then ranked them 1-16, placed them in a bracket of head-to-head matchups where your poll votes will determine who advances.
Athletes included are from the period between 2010 and 2019. We included the top 32 athletes that we thought should be included. It wasn't easy picking the top 32 we put a lot thought into who should be included.
How This Works
Athletes are seeded 1 through 16 based on times and ranking. After each round, the athlete with the most votes in their matchup will advance to the next round. Voting will end at 4 p.m. ET for each round. You may vote on me.milesplit.com. Be sure to spread the word to advance your favorites into the next round!
Round 1: June 19-23
Round 2: June 25-29
Round 3: July 1-5
Final Round: July 7-9
