I like the first and third pictures. The second is pretty soft though - what shutter speed did you get? You might need a higher ISO setting to really stop the motion (typically youneed at least 1/500 shutter speed to get a good freeze). One suggestion on the third picture is to crop a little tighter. The person to the right is distracting to the image and even the inside couple lanes without runners could be removed. Thanks for sharing

It was cold and overcast yesterday at the meet, so I was forced to shoot at 1/320 for some parts of it.

Another small tip...

Try controlling your backgrounds carefully.

When you set up for the high jump shot, the person with the white sweat top in the background kind of gets in the way of the foreground jumper.

Position yourself so when your ready to click the shutter, you know there will be nothing disturbing behind your subject.

Also, if you shoot with your aperture more wide open, you can blur the backgrounds a little, which can be distracting.
