    Well done to her!

    Now onto the real pre-Berlin test for her… She’ll be competing in the Monaco Diamond League meeting with Suhr, Stefanidi, McCartney, Morris and Silva. A replication of her last couple of results there will be a good indicator of her confidence going into the Euros.

    Huh?

    Damn dude, chill out will ya. You’re liable to give yourself a stroke posting so angrily.

    It’s not my fault that you’re pretty much wrong about literally *everything* you post, but I suppose I can’t stop you from making a bit of a fool of yourself, so it’s not my problem.

    Philipo just wants to have a stick to beat British athletes with. so I wouldn’t take anything he says too seriously.

    Indeed, he derides Prescod’s supposedly “poor” performance in Rabat and say they “may have European pretensions” in a dismissive manner, but on the thread specifically about the upcoming Euros, he’s very quick to say that if any…[Read more]

    Which is very encouraging for Jamaica’s future prospects (with the usual caveats about burn-out/dropping out of the sport/injuries) in this post-Bolt era.

    Might I add that this was Great Britain’s best medal haul in the World U-20’s since 1998, which is especially good considering that 2 years ago the team only brought back a single medal.

    Hmm, but if ya did that, wouldn’t it just have the same issues of major names pulling out precisely because it was early in the season?

    Personally, I’d like to see how things develop in this event once it’s been held in another country. We Brits have in the past 6 years proven that we can pack out big stadiums for athletic meets, be it Olympic,…[Read more]

    Some amazing scenes in the women’s high jump final as Sommer Lecky of Ireland leaps a national U-20 record of 1.90m to currently LEAD the event!

    That’s great about Bradshaw…. Its just a shame that we cant bloody well SEE IT! Look, I like Andy Pozzi like any other British athletics fan, but I don’t WANT to watch his life story right now, I want to see live athletics!

    Gotta admit, they’ve managed to fill out the Olympic Stadium pretty nicely for this World Cup event though. There are some empty seats for sure, but I’d say it’s a fair 60-65% full already.

    lol… People complaining about the athletics coverage on the BBC should take a look at how Sky Sports Mix are handling things…. Which is badly!

    BRIANA WILLIAMS WITH AN AMAZING RUN! 22.50CR!

    Surely that has to be one of the quickest times by a 16 year old ever!

    The pre-championship favourite Lauren Rain Williams, couldn’t break 23 seconds and comes in a distant 2nd to the Jamaican in 23.09, and the USA’s gold drought continues!

    In 3rd place, Pole Martnya Kotwila lowered her own…[Read more]

    Alex Botterill, last year’s Commonwealth Youth Games gold medalist in the 800m, fought for the 3rd, and last, auto qualifying position in the opening semi final heat, and he prevailed in the end, beating USA’s Josh Hoey to the line.

    Kenya’s Solomon Lekuta and Ethiopia’s Adisu Girma came first and second, going out front and dictating the pace…[Read more]

    And America’s gold drought continues as Alyssa Wilson’s quest to achieve 3 gold medals in the field “only” nets her a silver in her best event, the hammer. Canada’s Camryn Rodgers with her opening effort of 64.90m was able to win the gold, two years after finishing 11th in the prior edition of these championships.

    Don’t care. I’d still not take her after her whiny outburst about Laura Muir at the British Championships.

    I’d rather take Bell who isn’t prone to becoming a walking controversy when things don’t go 1000000% her own way.

    GREAT BRITAIN ONE-TWO IN THE 200M!

    EFOLOKO AND DOBSON!!!

    Efoloko tears up his personal best with his 20.48 clocking for gold! And Dobson was just off his own recently set personal best with 20.57 to gain the silver medal!

    And another American with a superior time heading into this championship, Harrison who had lowered his PC to 20.37 this…[Read more]

    And another American favourite fails to get a gold! Tara Davis, the world U-20 #1 this season with 6.71m, can’t replicate that form in the final and can only manage a bronze medal. This is even more galling for her considering that she had recorded 6 of the 10 longest leaps this year in the event!

    Just watch, we’ll find out that he’s related to the Borlee’s via a fourth cousin, twice removed! ;-)
