    2019 looks a very different season to this year, where the Worlds in Birmingham, the Commonwealth Games, and the Europeans in August appeared very compressed …

    The European Indoors in Glasgow, from 1st March to 3rd March, Team GB might be looking for a good showing being on home ground, but the Worlds, in Doha, are very late running from 27…[Read more]

    the flag waving for the men, hmm…

    The 4x400m relay was troubling. Only MHS in his 20s, sure they medalled, and I truly hope that Rooney remains in athletics when he hangs up his spikes, but where is the next generation? I do think that UKA ‘succession’ planning is very poor, they hit a seem of talent in a particular event, by design or not, and…[Read more]

    Now the flag waving… or not.

    Again, lots already mentioned, but as far as the ladies go…

    I feel for Lorraine Ugen, this was her chance, and as I have written, I felt there was a new confidence in her performances since the Commonwealth relay … it wasn’t to be, and I hope this is just a blip in an upward journey. Yes, it was foul, but it…[Read more]

    lots already mentioned by other forum users that I would agree with…

    I have never been so enthralled by a pole vault performance… With our lad Hague being very close to the events as they unfolded, he must feel inspired, and if I were him, I’d be asking how can I train with you (Duplantis) everyday!

    Jakob Ingebrigsten was sensational, and…[Read more]

    well done MHS … but, one has to wonder what time he would have got in the SF had he not ‘shut down’ …

    Jodie Williams… very disappointing, and I am not talking just about the hair …

    going forward, if she doesn’t consider a step up to 400, I think she’ll find it hard to make a team again..

    the Polish team are really impressing …

    Not sure Langford would have made the final… I reckon Learmonth put paid to Rowden’s chances with that knock in the home straight…

    Morgan Lake just said, in an interview on BBC, that she will have a conversation about heptathlon after Tokyo 2020, That’ll be a short one then :) – meanwhile they (the…[Read more]

    Yes, I acknowledge Thiam is a marvellous athlete and has shown true championship mentality, and difficult to argue against her being that once in a generation heptathlete, chapeau, but, but, KJT has room for improvement…

    the hurdles can be better, in this competition her technique looked very sound, a 13.1X is not impossible, but surely there…[Read more]

    thanks Hayden…

    If I were KJT’s coach I would urge her to still go hell-for-leather and not meekly acquiesce … she has a PB both in 800 and combined to target, it can remind others they have to bring their A-game every time on the Javelin, and make it an even more uncomfortable 2 mins plus for Thiam … you have a lane, you have a chance….

    what is that in terms of seconds in the 800m?

  • replied to the topic carterhatch in the forum Current events 4 days, 10 hours ago

    Finette Agyapong has so much potential, tall, rangy and holds the UK Indoor 300 record I believe … I really hope she explores the 200/400 combination further, Team GB’s Marie-José Pérec ;)

  • replied to the topic carterhatch in the forum Current events 4 days, 10 hours ago

    Has KJT ever had to run an 800 with every nerve and sinew pushed to the limit? Looking at Power of 10 I was very surprised to find that KJT’s PB was in 2013, at 2.07.64, so long overdue for an improvement …

    to my mind, it all depends if there is anyone else in the field looking to do a great time that could pull KJT around, and also she looked…[Read more]

    I don’t know how to find out these things quickly, but how far is that off KJT’s best Day 1?

  • replied to the topic carterhatch in the forum Current events 5 days, 3 hours ago

    Yes, KJT, I am starting to believe again…

  • replied to the topic carterhatch in the forum Current events 5 days, 4 hours ago

    indeed Larkim a KJT smile amidst a shot putt, and that 13m+ I hoped for…

    What a good run for Laviai, well done girl!

    I’d been wondering about Sam Talbot … a little search found this link
