Because a white man has never ran under 10 secs, obviously pietro minnea's 200 record 19.72, was a bit out of sorts!!! derrrrrrrr

Actually, who has been the closest white man under 10? interesting, its like heavy weight boxing, true!!

Christian Malcolm is and always been the star of Welsh Athletics but he has earned it. I guess he is funded by UKA, and other sources. I believe they have a Commonwealth package, but it may not include her as she may be too old?? Hopefully she hasnt left it too late?? Discus is looking very weak at ...

She did retire i believe for around 8mths!!! and looked pretty out of shape when i saw her at Crystal Palace a few months ago. Apparently she will be coming back next year for the Commonwealth and European, and is now being coached by Bob weir. Mike winch has retired and hasnt coached her since 2005...

Well this article has raised some interesting comments, and I feel the need to add my pennyworth! Firstly, having read Philippa's comments I did not get the impression that she was trying to make excuses for her own performance. She summed that up in her immediate post competition interview when she...

As i said before, hammer is irrelevant as it has been existence for around 15 years??? and is still a new event and hasnt been affected by the eastern bloc and old soviet regime which wouuld have pushed the WR over 85m. Ok, is there any woman on the planet capable of running 10.49, 47.60, or 21.34. ...

New specs for female shot and discus?

The powers that be have brought in new specs for female javelin which have revitalised an event which was dying due to the fact that the world record was 80.00m!!!!!! Its about time we wiped out the Eastern European shadow on shot and discus, and introduce new specifications on these events in order...

Wow!! thats a long way!!! Question for you stat guys: How does that compare to Felke's 80.00m? And...... Should we look at changing the specs in the other girlie throws (discus and shot)? because to be honest the world records will never be broken in the shot and the discus? 22.68, 76.80!!!!!!!!!!!!...

i heard that our discus thrower had a hip injury? i hope she is ok as i heard she was throwing way over 60m in most training sessions, so i guess the failure (bevone) is due to psychological factors. i guess its better than 3 no throws!!! but unacceptable in terms of world standard. did anyone notic...

Yates has a real fighting spirit, thought his interview was honest, that guy really cares about his event, and he deserves a chance (a lot more than some in the team, i.e Womens pole vault!!) Look forward to seeing him run sub 49, then onwards and upwards. Perri looked good aswell and should have be...

good jump by kelly, but she will never be the same class as Jade Johnson, who is more than capable of jumping 7m plus. I heard there is a discus(female) on at 1.30pm, brits only, no payment, where is the incentive, why not get some europeans over to show how it is done? very strange?

why not just go back to the old format? yes its not what it used to be in the days when it televised (yes it was!!). However, i am sure that the Cup has a place within the fixture calender, especially for those athletes who do not have the option of competing in international comps, even though they...
