    That’s one more then… Anybody else?

    Also, can we just stop to take a moment to realise just WHO we are comparing Dina Asher Smith with? Leaving aside Kathy Cook, we’re using the reigning Olympic 200m champion (Thompson), the now 2X World 200m Champion (Schippers), and one of the greatest female sprinters of all time (SAFP), to try and get a…[Read more]

    I’m sorry but… whut?!

    An “over-reaction” from me regarding Dina’s future chances would be to suggest that she is a shoe in for inevitable gold medal glory in every major competition she’ll take part in during the next 5 to 8 years!

    Which would be a ridiculous statement to make since the likes of Schippers, Elaine Thompson, Tori Bowie, Ta Lou…[Read more]

    This is a thread that I decided to write having given myself a few days to digest the events of London 2017, and as a reply to a comment by SteveK26 on the London 2017 Post-Morten thread to try and process the remarkable talents of surely our most promising and naturally talented female sprinter to come from these shores since the glory days of…[Read more]

    And NMB is just turning up for the shirt is he? And what about Pozzi? A couple hundredths away from making the final and as Balaz Baji proved, once you get to the final in the 110m hurdles, anything can happen.

    I’m glad you mentioned Tom Gale though, he is an immense talent in the high jump and if he can stay clear of injuries, he could be very…[Read more]

    Just thought I’d bold this part of your comment for emphasis…. Remember when folks were stating that it was a *mistake* for GB to leave out Kilty from the relay squad?

    Yeah, he’s never getting back in the squad now. I’m making this bold prediction now because he is never, ever going to get close to being a sub-10 runner in the rest of his…[Read more]

    NMB made sure to get his own back after just missing out on beating Coleman all those times in the NCAA’s. :)

    Adam would have been a factor in the 200m I think…. The UK Trials just came too soon for him this year.

    Finally! Barega does something different!

    Do these other runners (apart from Butchert) in the 5000m just want to HAND the gold to Mo? Because I just don’t understand this tactic of an ultra slow pace.

    I TOLD YA ABOUT SALLY PEARSON! I TOLD YOU TO LOOK OUT FOR HER!!

    2 weeks.

    IF these championships had taken place 2 weeks later… Then DAS would be at least a bronze medallist in the 200m.

    To run 22.22, her third fastest time EVER, having only literally started proper running again 6-7 weeks ago, that’s incredible.

    AND IT’S HAPPENED TO HARRISON AGAIN!

    And she JUST… JUST made it into the final!

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

    Sally Pearson is NOT messing around! :)

    Hopefully, however don’t expect any quick times…. The rain currently lashing London right now is predicted to last pretty much the rest of the day until Midnight. Plus it’s going to be cold too.

    Not conducive to fast times or long distances (isn’t the men’s Triple Jump final tonight… if so, don’t expect Christian Taylor to get anywhere…[Read more]

    Wow…. what is going on with Wlodardcryk? She’s really struggling in the hammer final

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

    Talbot… always guaranteed to perform at a major championships, does it again with a new personal best of 20.16sec, going above Marlon Devonish and Julian Golding in the UK all time list. Well done!

    BTW, He was easing down as well along with Van Niekerk at the finish, both of them possibly presenting the image of the champs as they cross the…[Read more]

    KJT CAN throw the javelin! a season’s best of 41.75 is a good start…. Can see push it to 44-45 meters?

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

    DAMN KJT!

    Way to make your fans worry! That Long Jump was close to being a foul, but well done for getting it in! 6.56m is a good start. :)
