    If Dina is going for a European double then she will almost certainly win both events at trials.

    As far as the 100 goes, it would not surprise me to see Nieta and Lanisquot secure the other two spots.

  • replied to the topic stevek26 in the forum Current events 2 months, 1 week ago

    Prescod is a worthy favourite for the 100, but i would love to see him run the 200.

    I have a feeling Edoburun may now have matured into the real deal. If Prescod is to get beat it might be by him.

    What kind of relay squad will GB be able to select this summer!
    Prescod-Edoburun-NMB-Hughes-Ujah-Gemili-Talbot.

    If there are weaknesses amongst…[Read more]

    Mystery

    The 800 should be a fascinating event at trials. All the top boys will have to show up, and currently there are 7 below 1-46. last year the were only 5 under 1-46 at the end of season.
    The event is making significant progress which is great to see.

    Please don’t make promises that you would hate to have to keep!!

    I agree that the evidence indicates that Jodie won’t below 51.00 seconds. But this forum needs to have intelligent posters who can provoke and stimulate debate. So don’t go missing for 18 months! Because the 22.77 she ran in the States (very recently) is an indicator that…[Read more]

    Wow, that is some philosophy.
    We all must be trolls then so its good to know at least you have such an in depth grasp on how to be competitive at sport!

    But hang on a mo…

    If you are only ‘somewhere near your best’ is that likely to be good enough these days?
    And if you are ‘talented’ but maybe not quite ‘elite’ level how does that work…[Read more]

    I think KJT can medal at the Euro’s, but unlikely to be gold.
    I would predict a deficit of at least 350 pts.behind Thiam.

  • replied to the topic stevek26 in the forum Current events 2 months, 3 weeks ago

    Prescod is probably the biggest sprint sensation we have ever produced. (And I love Linford).

    What on earth he will run over 200 this year?

    KJT is now (probably) 400 points adrift of Thiam. Slim chance of her ever winning a global gold now.
    Should have moved events years ago when it was apparent she has no aptitude for throws.

    Will she ever…[Read more]

    Cant fancy him to win a medal in Berlin, though, except maybe in the short relay. Individual medals seem hard work for him.

    A weird thing.
    I warmed to Mo Farah today, simply because he called it as it was. To read that he said he felt tired after the marathon and just hung in there. He also said that whilst he has the speed he can only use it if the guys haven’t hurt him enough.

    He came across as a realist who knows how hard the challenges ahead will be. With that…[Read more]

    Great City Games

    Not just the coverage that was dire. Pozzi looks like a shambles now occupies his head.
    What happened to Prescod? I’ve just finished watching it (but not live) on the BBC website. I must have fast-forwarded past the only race I was really interested in!

    Ursus

    I was talking in general terms, and I wasn’t separating ‘throws’ and ‘heavy’ throws.

    Despite a little bit of success in the spear over the years, that hasn’t been able to paper over the lack of success in throws as a whole taken over a 40 year period.

    Field Events

    Jumps
    We have been consistently moderate with the odd outstanding performer thrown in.

    Throws
    We have been consistently below moderate with the odd outstanding performer thrown in.

    This has been the case for as long as I can remember, and is likely to remain so. It would be nice to come up with a few more, but I cant see it…[Read more]

    52.75 in Knoxville.

    She is quite phenomenal. 100/200/400 and both hurdles events all come the same to her. She will undoubtedly become the next ‘mega star’, in fact she probably is already.

  • replied to the topic stevek26 in the forum Current events 3 months ago

    LOL

    KJT?

  • replied to the topic stevek26 in the forum Current events 3 months ago

    I made the same comment about Sawyers a while back on a different thread.

    More derision came my way because (apparently) she is not tall enough.

    Jimbo

    Thanks for that.
    Of course I wasn’t suggesting those 4 athletes going on to achieve ‘superstar’ status.

    Just that they might run 51’s this year.

    I watched an interview MHS gave recently (forget where) and he seemed as happy as Larry in his current set up. He might be on the autistic scale somewhere but if he is its hardly…[Read more]

  • replied to the topic stevek26 in the forum Current events 3 months ago

    Can’t say I disagree with any of that, CarterHatch.
    I’ve always been a big fan of Desiree Henry, but she seems injury and accident prone. She bulked up quite a bit a couple of years ago and I’m not sure all that muscle will help her 400 times. I’d love to see her make a strong 100/200 challenge this year.

    What do you make of MHS ? I’m starting…[Read more]

  • replied to the topic stevek26 in the forum Current events 3 months ago

    My goodness me!

    Suggesting that SBD and Lavaia Nielsen should be able to run in the 51’s this year has brought a torrent of derision down upon me. Both athletes have already run 51’s in the past, and are both still young. I guess we’ll see.

    Bruney and Agyapong have a chance to get into the 51’s by virtue of their 200 speed.

    I’m not saying these…[Read more]

    Not sure why these remarks about ‘hype’ keep coming up.

    If an athlete runs a ‘winning’ 10.04 first time out in the season, and if that athlete happens to have made a World Champs final the previous season, its inevitable that favourable comments will follow. Inevitable. And rightly so.

    However I have yet to read a comment that he is favourite to…[Read more]
