    W 50kmW is all the news here!

    We’ve had the inaugaral IAAF WR set early this year
    4 08 26 Inês Henriques ’80 POR 15 01 17 – her 1st 50kmW

    Under 4.30 was required to be considered for recognition

    Last year Erin Talcott, ’78, a pioneer of the event was the first woman to participate with men in Rome:
    40th 4 51.08; also did 4.42.15 13nov16
    her pb 4.33.22 22.01.12 Santee NR

    28jan17 event in Santee USA
    1 4.26.37 Katie Burnett ’88; NR – her 1st 50kmW (20kmW pb 1.37.51 ’14)
    2 4.29.17 Erin Talcott PB

    To think if Erin had done that PB this year before 15jan she would have been able to claim the WR

    Just you wait for Nitro Athletics and its convoluted rules and scoring! :wacko:

    Is there any word on when the Women’s 50k walk will become a championship event?

    Being an endurance fan I should try to get into the walks a bit more.

    At London 2017 (or is it Doha 2019?) aren’t they trialling some sort of electronic sensor in/on their shoes to catch ‘lifting’? If that technology is adopted down the line how much do you think times will be affected?

    Jade Lally over 62m in the discus and an early world lead!

    Expect Jade to do well in the Commonwealth Games next year as she clearly likes throwing down under. Unfortunately for her no other champs down under for the foreseeable future.

    Let’s hope her form in the European Summer is much better than last year. She had an up & down summer season & threw poorly in Rio. She is clearly capable of making the final in London if she gets it right on the day.

    Another WL for Callum Hawkins in Japan. That’s the way to get over having a record taken away – set a new one ;)

    Breakthrough performance from Hawkins although he may be gutted that he didn’t go a second quicker.

    Another great run by Callum Hawkins. I have a feeling he will break Steve Jones British Marathon & not Mo

    I definitely foresee him outshining Mo at the marathon.

    60:00 from a proven marathoner (incl back to back 10k PBs I believe – 28:28 then 28:27) vs 59:22 from a proven 10000m race winner does suggest he’ll take down the British record before Mo. Hopefully what we’ll end up with is both a higher profile for the marathon in the UK and potentially a few years of really aggressive marathon racing between Mo and Callum with the consequent impact on records etc.

    (Alternative scenario is Mo deciding to hang up his shoes and not bother!)

    There’s no doubt with a 60flat clocking in the HM he has turned world class. Could be that HM is his best distance, but let’s hope that it’s not (given the profile of that race when compared to 10000m or marathon).

    A shame in a way Callum’s not running a spring Marathon this year. Would be interesting to see what time he’d run.

    Completely understandable of course & it may well have been a condition of his pre-selection.

    My initial reaction to the predictions about Callum Hawkins running faster than Mo over the marathon was that there was little chance of that happening.
    However, looking at this half marathon PB its clear that he is not that far behind Mo at that distance. So it must be possible. I know nothing about what the Marugame course is like, but being in Japan it might well be undulating.
    A sub 2-09 looks distinctly possible if he stays healthy.

    Pleased to see that Jacko Gill has gone over 21m for the first time with 21.01. 16cm behind Buckowiecki who must be the world’s most powerful teenager.

    Good to see a mention of Gill.

    Jacko Gill b.94, had the 7.26 SP NZL NR in 2011 with 20.38. Then it became the property of Tom Walsh who from 2013-2016 pushed it up to its current 22.21

    Gill was such a brilliant youth and junior and then his senior career seem to faulter, but now looks to be on the up and up:
    Progess: ’11 20.38, ’12 20.05, ’13 —, ’14 20.70, ’15 20.75, ’16 20.83, ’17 21.01

    Konrad Bukowiecki, b97: his progress has been nudge, nudge, nudge in the last 3 seasons:
    ’15 20.76, ’16 21.14, ’17 21.17 – tho’ one will expect more progress as ’17 progresses – & from Gill too hopefully

    The Youth Junior days
    Jacko Gill
    5kg 24.45
    6kg 23.00

    Konrad Bukowiecki
    5kg 23.17, 24.24 in
    6kg 23.34

    Little NZL and so strong in the SP (And on the distaff side they’ve had Valerie Adams / Vili). Reminds one of the MD power in the 60s.

    Re NZL M SP NR
    Indeed, Walsh pushing the NR last year from it being 21.62, in 4 stages to 22.21.
    Thanks.
