    Great career, he never really explored his 100m potential.

    Presume Whiteaker is injured again. One of my hopes from last year was that he’d spend the winter in Germany, where his technique would be remodelled, so going forward he had a chance to develop his exceptional talent.

    The depth, standard and age profile of British male sprinters has never been stronger. In 2019/20 we’ll have 3 sub 10 and 3 sub 20 athletes. As for the relay, today a drilled unit of Gemili, Prescod, Hughes and OJ could run a scary time.

    Duckworth is starting to sort out his second day. His first day is world class. Long way to go, hopefully the Europeans will be another step forward.

    That is some performance from Jake Norris. Third in the NCAA’s at 18, outstanding. Looking forward to him doing some damage with the 6kg hammer.
    Duckworth had a problem after the HJ, but still set a pb in the 400. He’s going to score 8500 in the not too distant future.

    Insightful, must read interview with Prescod in the Telegraph.

    KJT is now a 6800 heptathlete at best, while Thiam is a 6800 performer at worst. Careers moving in opposite directions. Thiam is a rock solid competitor under pressure while Kat is Kat. Watching her throw the shot is a really painful experience.

    I love watching Prescod run, makes me feel like a kid again. Hard working, humble, talented and learning fast.

    Prescod’s racing in Eugene next weekend against Coleman etc. Competing against Harry AA and Kilty tonight, a needless distraction. If conditions are good, and they usually are, I wonder what time he’ll run. His POT page shows what a comparative novice he is. 71 competitions, twenty 100m races and already a World finalist. What a talent!

    I first saw Prescod run two years ago, and I had the same feeling in my gut that I had when I first saw Michael Johnson run. No comparison of course, but there’s no hype involved here, you cannot watch Prescod hit top speed and not think anything is possible. This race has come at the right time in his fledgling career and is going to get him into…[Read more]

    Joe Ellis is an interesting wildcard in the hammer. After equalling the British weight throw Best in the winter, he’s starting to transition that form to the hammer.

  • replied to the topic foxyjarvis in the forum Current events 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    Expecting Prescod to run very fast this year. His heat and semi at the World Champs provided ample evidence of his potential. Good start in his heat, great finish in his semi. If he puts it all together, it’s a great foundation for the next two years.

    ‘If it’s solid, it can’t go wrong’ KJT should heed the wise words of her 18 year old teammate Niamh Emerson. It’s crystal clear, KJT just doesn’t think like an heptathlete.

    Abject from KJT. I’m getting as tired of the Kat narrative as I am of Brexit.

    I think today was Hitchon’s first loss to a British athlete since she’s been a senior. I hope I’m wrong but I think Rio will be the high point of her career. Small margins, after 2 rounds Miller had a 63 and a foul. Another error and he would have bombed out as well, yet his third round throw has set up the rest of his career.

    Miller’s 5th round 79.75m impressed me even more than his British record. Not as technically smooth, far more rushed, with Jake Norris setting another Junior record over the weekend, the American collegiate system is doing wonders for British male hammer throwers.

  • replied to the topic foxyjarvis in the forum Current events 2 months, 1 week ago

    Duckworth was a talented junior, but I never saw his 100/LJ developing the way it has. Hope he gets a score tomorrow that reflects his ability. It’s going to be great again to see a British decathlete featuring in global competitions.

    Jake Norris seems to have settled with some style into the US collegiate system. He’s improved his week old UK Junior hammer record to 72.70m.

    18 year old Jake Norris is not mucking about. In his first outdoor competition of the year he smashed the UK Junior hammer record with 70.98m.

  • replied to the topic foxyjarvis in the forum Current events 3 months, 2 weeks ago

    I guess Tim Duckworth is not here due to the NCAA’s next week. On the pundits talking about the lack of UK male multi eventers, I’m surprised Denise Lewis didn’t give him a mention. He looks like a significant talent to me.
