    I don’t think it’s a point of whether the public have the attention span it’s whether the sport can be televised this is how the sport id going to grow….. they have to do something.

    I find all the proposals good ideas but none that deal with the biggest issue. The fact that Athletics is built around an event that happens every four years, funding, sponsorship viewing numbers everything.

    And we know why they won’t make certain changes needed, the olympics make the IAAF as a business the most money.

    You aren’t listening Jess is 5’6 they are 6ft+ girls do you know how difficult it is for women to improve their physique when being that tall?

    Saying they look fit but not strong is an assumption.

    Every event is difficult so I’m not going to sit here and say learning a technique is simple….

    @Stevek26

    Are you going to read all of peoples posts or reply to some?

    Lakes issues aren’t throwing hers is speed

    KJT needs to be consistent and perform in every event with possible SBs and PBs at major champs, maybe her throws will improve now she has a new coach?

    Shot tech is easy? please tell us more……

    Clearly Morgan and KJT have developed strength and power relating to high jumping, for example.
    But we are not talking about high jumping (or sprinting) in isolation. These girls are heptathletes and need to address the throws as well.

    All I’m saying is that by just looking at their physiques it appears to me that they don’t have the…

    In terms of KJT and Lake I don’t think it has anything to do with strength and power specifically they are jumping 1.92+ and KJT running 22.7 there strength and power levels are geared towards their strengths and lets remember added bulk may take away from HJ, 200 and LJ performances which for those two would be diminishing returns.

    I see it as…[Read more]

    I think the assumption is that myself and some of the posters are making excuses for poor performances when this is not the case. Like I have said athletes who are lottery funded and full time should be held accountable for poor performances 100%. But to totally disregard the huge difference of the world socially, economically and it’s effect on…[Read more]

    According to my examination of the Americans medals their average from 1983 to 1999
    was 21 medals and their average in this century including this year is approx 21 medals. So no big dropping off despite a number of reasons that were set out in Bigguts post, affecting that country same as ours.
    But then again they don’t like losers, excuse m…

    I haven’t posted in ages but this thread was something I couldn’t leave alone.

    Anybody who thinks comparing simple medal count directly over periods of decades without context is a way to measure how the sport is dong in the UK is an idiot. It is beyond stupid in its’ oversimplification.

    The UK can have an element of control over things in th…

    @philipo

    I never accused anyone you named eight athletes over twenty years as if they were the only GB athletes around at that time.

    My proof is from meet directors who used to run Golden League and other meets back then they are the ones who have told me how much was available and the prize money that was available

    I will be the first to say that BA are paving over cracks with relay medals as so many events are very poor but…..

    The ongoing comparison with the 80s and 90s is ridiculous for those who keep doing it and seem to assume athletes in 2017 get so much more you are insane! Money in track and field has got less and less ZERO corporate sponsors and…[Read more]

    You can stand by it if you like still in poor taste especially as that is the third fastest time GB women have ever run

    Compared to Thompson, Nieta looked like she was running in treacle.

    Awful comment, there is 0.4 between there PBs what did you expect?
