    Update following anniversary Games:-

    W100: Lansiquot made this selection easier
    M100: Ujah still in box seat. He’s not had an amazing season but then nobody else has really done anything to seriously lay down a claim for the 3rd spot either.
    W200: Still Jodie for me
    M200: Does Zharnel want to double. Not shown any inclination but I’m not…[Read more]

    I thought the crowd looked bigger today. The atmosphere and performances by & large turned up a notch too.

    Mixed day for the Brits. Some good performances and PBs but some of the bigger names a tad disappointing and will need to step up a gear for Berlin.

    Glad Greg got to say farewell on his own terms even though inevitably his body isn’t…[Read more]

    Perhaps Hassan is running scared of Muir and is opting for the easier shot at gold?

    Reid has been very outspoken & vocal about wanting to run for Ireland, even lobbying the IAAF Re:Transfer of Allegiance freeze. He isn’t interested in running for Britain. End of debate.

    For the discretionary picks as a general rule I prefer to go on trials results but rules are there to be broken on occasion too if either past results or a big performance in the next 3 weeks warrants it. With that in mind my picks are as follows:-

    W100: If Bianca wants to double she has earned it otherwise the spot goes to Lansiquot. If Asha can…[Read more]

    I think she’ll score 6200. The Junior record isn’t out of the question but she’d probably have to back up her LJ PB from the weekend. I think the Heptathlon will be one of the best events in Tampere.

    Gabby is a much better presenter than Radzi. I think I’d prefer JJ Chalmers to stand in whilst Gabby is at the World Cup.

    Ursus – I am in agreement that we should not get overly excited about performances at this level.

    But that’s exactly why we should take an inclusive approach to selection for age group champs. The person who just scraped into the team may well be the one who ends up performing better as a senior compared to some medalists.

    Setting standards…[Read more]

    The main issue here is that the squad selected will be too small.

    This is a development event and should be treated as such by British Athletics. Instead they are presumably penny pinching by setting inflated standards which put the event out of reach for some & on top of that setting a limit on the number of athletes who can go. The figure is…[Read more]

    I don’t know what Dina’s plans are but the schedule for the sprints is certainly an incentive for the top athletes to double.

    They have kept the rule introduced in Amsterdam giving a bye in the heats to the top 12 ranked athletes so the top sprinters would only need to do the semi & final. I’d like to see Dina double – I’d fancy her chances of…[Read more]

    Good to see MHS injury not too serious.

    Rununlimited – As she is not pro there is obviously no incentive for her to run any Diamond Leagues etc. She may do World Juniors but she may also just end her season after the NCAA champs or US champs.

    In positive figures now. Whoop Whoop

    I would agree that the Brits by & large aren’t taking these games as seriously as the Aussies. Not just the athletics but for the likes of Swimming, Gymnastics & Cycling the Europeans in Glasgow in the Summer are a bigger deal.

    In contrast, most Australians skipped the world cycling champs last month to peak in the Gold Coast

    Wherever one sits on the hyperandrogynism debate, there should be nothing personal against Caster who just wants to run.

    Poor from Pozzi, still too inconsistent in his hurdling for me.

    Sophie has been very inconsistent since her brilliant performance in Rio but that was a shocker, no its or buts.

    At least some promising performances in the…[Read more]

    I guess doing the Triathlon individual and relay events the last few days Potter was never going to do anything much.

    Good that all the home nation athletes made 1500 final, although I agree that MacDonald was very fortunate. After Semenya the minor medals are up for grabs.

    Well done to Simbine – not sure why he was overlooked so much given…[Read more]

    Great performance by Miller. And from Mark Dry too – Bennett was below par compared to his recent outings.

    Frustrating from MHS. Looks in good shape; no excuse for poor lane discipline in a heat. A wasted opportunity

    Yep his final year in College. Hopefully nothing too serious injury wise & the right thing to do to take it easy rather than aggravate things.

    He’s got 2 Months until the NCAA so decent amount of time to recover. He’s clearly got a 8300-8400 score in him.

    As well as qualifying for NCAA that’s also comfortably qualified him for the Europeans.…[Read more]
