I applaud Ms. Nelson’s effort, and certainly hadn’t considered her as a natural 400 runner… always impressed by her conditioning and was very unlucky with injuries. it might inspire others to take up a new challenge.
maybe she should try the bobsleigh!
…and, SteveK26, if that is the case, would be sad … from teenage prodigy to … to what? unfulfilled talent? The 200m that made her second on the UK all time list, at the time in 2014, made her mark. I still think she is young enough, 24, to explore the 400, but when she didnt appear for the indoor season, I have to say I was concerned……[Read more]
I admire your optimism, and while happy to unfurl the union flag, I don’t think it will be seen very often, certainly not on top of the podium. I think British Athletics have missed a chance here, it is a home venue, and yes I know the Commonwealths are early, but I think one or two more of our ‘funded’ athletes should have been…[Read more]
Great to see Dai Greene competing and I wish him well for the season … I assume he is hoping for selection on the Wales CG team.
I was hoping for a Nicola Sanders breakthrough and the emergence of Lee Thompson, while not quite that level, was welcome … The Team GB 4×400 selection for the WI certainly could not have been predicted by me
must it be case of either/or for KJT …
Does she need to give up the Hep to focus on either the LJ or HJ … I suspect that if she were to do so, what marginal gains would there really be … we talk of 2m HJ or 7m LJ but she is yet to achieve either in any competition. I doubt very much if she were to give up the HEP that we would…[Read more]
I’m sat in front of the laptop watching the start of the coverage – thank you British Athletics …
So with only one individual, the winner, selected, if they have the qualifying time, for the World Indoors, does someone know if DASHER is not available for selection or she has been given the nod and wink, no matter what happens…[Read more]
I thought I would add a thread for this weekend’s indoor championships…
SPAR British Athletics Indoor Championships
Saturday 17th February – Sunday 18th February 2018
As as afirst point of discussion… anyone know why Dasher is not on the list for 60m …or am I missing something? She ran this week and, my understanding is, you have to…[Read more]
the question of KJT is a very difficult one…
if it were not for the emergence of Thiam, then perhaps the question of KJT continuing with the Hep would be much easier to answer. Thiam’s extraordinary ability to combine a world class high jump with very credible SP and Javelin, for heptathletes, exposes KJT’s weaknesses even more.…[Read more]
thanks for the update Luckyspikes – it was your weekend update that inspired me to revisit my prediction.
if the timetable allows, then e might be in for a treat with Ms. Muir!
looking at the athletes listings for events
can someone confirm the…[Read more]
Bumped my own thread as I am building towards this weekend and wanted to see how I was doing in my prediction for the women’s GB selection for the forthcoming World Indoors …
at the beginning of the thread I predicted the following selection
60 DASHER, A Philip
400 PSD, Laviai Nielsen
800 Sharp, Oskan-Clarke
1500 Muir, Weightman
3000 Judd,…[Read more]
I am relieved that PSD has made it through her DoI excursion with no injury…
the article suggests that she has been entered for the individual 400m at the CG, as well as the relay
no mention if she will be doing any indoors…
this site is plagued with those spammers… have written as per request to firstname.lastname@example.org but heard nothing …
Meanwhile… I had got quite excited about Ada’ora Chigbo a couple of season’s ago and then seemed to flat line … just noticed she competed in the US at the weekend for New Mexico Uni … a PB in the shot and 1.80 in HJ…[Read more]

Congratulations to Laura Muir with a new Scottish Indoor 800m record of 1:59.69 … compatriot Zoey Clark has set a new Scottish Indoor 200 record, which bodes well for her 400
results have been hard to come by this weekend …I have wanted to getinfo on the combined events taking place in Madrid… forum veterans are thin on the ground… and…[Read more]
… I have no insider knowledge to answer that Larkim, but clearly some athletes have decided that the CG is not in their plans (someone mentioned a particular training group are not involved en masse) and others may have more pressing matters (exams a la muir – yes I know she is Scottish) … so only knows who are on the list of available for…[Read more]
Greg Rutherford withdraws from CG
Jacob Paul given the slot instead…
I have questioned on this and other threads that selection for the England Athletics team was perhaps too early but at least there seems time to replace those athletes who are withdrawing
