    as already pointed out, sawyers was probably one of the first names on the list, the same three athletes were picked last time and sawyers was the one the came away with the commonwealth silver

    exactly, it was the same three long jumpers last time and sawyers was the one that came away with a silver medal, ugen and proctor although more talented are also more likely to flake out, sawyers was probably one of the first names picked

  • replied to the topic robo2 in the forum Current events 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    sawyers has more chance of winning a medal than any of the people left out , based on a) the fact that she has already done so and b) the standard in field events being so low

  • replied to the topic robo2 in the forum Current events 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    i would say sawyer is our 4th best long jumper, but her record speaks for itself, she already has a commonwealth silver from 2014 as well as a euro silver from 2016agree with you the other 2

    this is getting tedious now, in the three olympics from 92-2000 we won 7 field medals (1g, 4s, 2b) in the last 3 olympics we have won 9 (2g, 3s, 4b)

    olympics
    1992 – backley – bronze
    1996 – smith – bronze
    backley – silver
    edwards – silver
    leiws -silver
    2000 – backley – silver

    2008 – mason – silver

    1993 -10 medals
    1987, 2011 – 8 medals
    1983, 1991, 1999, 2009, 2015 – 7 medals

    i really dont see why we shouldnt send our strongest team possible to all three competitions, the indoor season should lead into the commonweatlhs and the likes of kjt should be doing the heptathlon at the commonwealths and pentathlon at the worlds, the point is medals after all and she has a chance of three next year, similarly we should be…[Read more]

    its a good point, kat should be targetting both the world indoors and the commonwealths early in the season as the commonweatlh competition is a lot weaker than the euros and she would be strong favourite for gold , then she can focus on the euros

  • replied to the topic robo2 in the forum Current events 3 months, 1 week ago

    I suspect there will be a bumper crop of medals at all three, the indoor worlds because its in the uk and more of our bigger names than usual will turn up – 9 is the record from 2012

    mccolgan has improved enough this year that she is in with a chance of medals at both, although the commonwealths may be a stretch

    our womens team has never been this good or had as much strength in depth

    the womens 60, 100, 200, 400, 1500, 3000 steeplechase, 60h, 100h, high jump, long jump , pole vault records have all been set in the past 5 years

    8 out of the top 20 all time list in the 100 metres are competing today and are all under 26
    4 out of the all times 200 are…[Read more]

    do you never get bored of moaning philipo?

    ill not deny that our feild events barring the jumps are crap at the moment, however we have probably the strongest team we have ever put out (admittedly with no no gold medal guaranteed superstars barring mo) we have a number of athletes who can hopefully push on and win medals at global events in the…[Read more]

    hes been the most consistent brit this year and the fastest, if you count a wind assist hes been sub ten for the last 4 seasons, 4 sub 10s in total to linfords 9, dasalous 2, chambers 5 (non dq’d ones ) and the rests 1

  • replied to the topic robo2 in the forum Current events 3 months, 4 weeks ago

    i dont know why people are writing off gemili , standards in the 100 and 200 are much lower than they were a couple of years ago and he is in with a shout as well
