    Carter , not too much for serious flag waving, I reckon.

    O’hare’s performances were positive recently but we have been here before; in globals etc you need to run smart and 3 races often; wonder what O’hares excuses were in London 12017.
    Kjt has proved to me that she will never do serious medalling in the Hep and her pathetic recent effort in…[Read more]

    The incorrect nonsense about a so called “indisputable decline at the top level in the nineties ” is typical of the arrogant Bigut
    If you examine the top or elite level of track in the nineties in GB you can see a large number of our best athletes achieved their best during the nineties. The list obtained from the British all-time lists is too…[Read more]

    Don’t think Mo knew and why would he suspect a win after several disappointments; . Other winners have accepted the award when not on hand; does not really matter.
    Well done Mo; a fitting reward.

    Underwhelming… you are so polite.!!
    Hamilton’s abilities are directly related to the car and copious mechanics helping out, so WTF he s doing there is one of lives great puzzles.

    25 athletes on Relay Funding…. quite crazy!!

  • replied to the topic philipo in the forum Current events 3 months, 1 week ago

    Did one expect anything else from the selectors of the funded athletes; just the usual inconsistencies and puzzling choices.

    Jonathan Rea… just proves that this BBC prog is a silly load of nonsense whereby groups of supporters are or can be encouraged to support any sportsman whether he has been heard of at all or is known by many people.

    Bet he is never the same again; no 43 sec dead now.

    It is surely inconceivable that with the CG at a time of the year when track is usually waking up to serious training efforts, and with the WI Champs a month before, and the big one for me in Berlin in the Summer, and with nobody here, I presume, knowing the full details of all athletes wishes about the upcoming 12 months as to availability, and…[Read more]

    oops … forgot its not the SPOTY thing we were talking about but the World of athletics votes.

  • replied to the topic philipo in the forum Current events 4 months, 1 week ago

    with you Stefan.

    The public vote is by whom, experts on arrange of sports or just people with a passing interest in some sport.. or people who vote after a nice BBC biased programme coverage; lots of emoting all over the place.

    Amazed at the depressing attitude of Steve on this subject.
    I recall well taking a friend and passing fan of sport to his first session of T and F at national level and I tried valiantly to explain everything happening while the poor guy tried to follow two field events and track at the same time.. He never went to another meet again… “too…[Read more]

    Disagree entirely with the negative view of Coe, who is at least attempting to consider the way forward to arrest the major indifference to our sport across the globe; many of the hardcore fans of track and field across the globe are conservative in the extreme and want no changes whatsoever; note the hysteria when 4 rounds instead of six in…[Read more]

    You know that the All- athletics site ranks consistently performances much higher than placements. I don’t give credence for one offs, or outliers as it is now called; to me, and many others I suspect, its what honours you achieve in the globals that really counts. The rankings from the above are vastly overrated in GBs favour as far as I am…[Read more]

    Farah was not unbeaten during the year and had one high quality performance this year, in the 10k in London.
    Seems unfair on the unbeaten Kendricks, and Barshim who were also Gold medallists in London.

    Was the World Indoors selected as Birmingham before or after we knew of the choice of CG venue as Gold Coast.?
    I never can understand if the UKA people knew of the CG choice some time before the choice of Birmingham why it happened. The problems of a March indoors and a CG a month later would surely have been known and we could have gone for a…[Read more]

    Stefanidi, Lasitskene, and Wlodarcyk have been unbeaten and won Golds this year and ought to be in the lead; how you decide on them I don’t know.
    Barshim, Kendricks and Fajdek the top 3 guys; won Golds and probably unbeaten.

    The 90s lost years… crazy rubbishy views for all of us who saw a stack of great British runners throughout the decade and even the odd Javelin thrower triple jumper etc. I believe you to be on need of some help especially when you talk of sportshall as having an impact… as for the money spent on athletics at the top end its impact has been…[Read more]
