17-year-old Riley Day ran 22.93 in the 200 into a 1.7 headwind to win the Australian Championships!
The Aussies have some seriously good young female talents at the moment. Bendere Oboya 51.96 in the 400 at age 17, Keely Small 2:01.46 in the 800, just 16 yo (she ran that time at 15) and Elle Beer 54.4 in the 400, aged just 15.
Aside from the NCAA Indoor Championships live on BT Sport this weekend, there’s various outdoor events in March that will be live streamed/broadcast.
10th – 11th European Throwing Cup (Leiria, POR) (GB are sending a team of 11 for this) 11th Lisbon Half Marathon (not certain this will be streamed without geo-blocking though) 17th Sydney Athletics Grand Prix (the first of 3 ‘big’ Aussie meets which I’m guessing will have plenty of British involvement) 18th New York City Half Marathon 22nd Summer of Athletics Grand Prix (Brisbane) 24th IAAF World Half Marathon Championships (Valencia) (hopefully on the BBC, if not broadcast by the IAAF?) 28th Queensland Track Classic (Nathan) (don’t think this is going to be streamed though)
There’s a few English athletes in the Sydney Grand Prix this Saturday, streaming live from 7am UK time at http://live.athletics.com.au/ – Dasher in the 100, Cowan & Yousif in the 200, Adam Hague & Jade Lally. Centrowitz is in the 1500 too.
Not as many as I was expecting but maybe there’ll be a few more in the Brisbane meetings on the 22nd & 28th?
