Re: NEW FORUM NOW LIVE

AW: you haven't said anything about the error which is causing posts to be attributed to first names instead of usernames. Can you sort this out please, and let us know when you have done so? Thanks.

Re: NEW FORUM NOW LIVE

I'd rather have the date and the name of the last person to post, as on this forum, than the 'freshness' column, which somehow makes everything look 'stale', unless it was posted five minutes ago. Also the pages are really short, which involves more tedious waiting for the next page to load (if your...

Re: Tyson Gay banned for one year

The IAAF should put in place an automatic 2 year ban on all IAAF permit meets. This would mean no Diamond League, World Challenge or World Championship (indoor and outdoor). That takes the pressure off the promoters and those banned for taking substances would not be able to earn money. . That's fi...

Re: England CWG Team

Here's a little selection dilemma: the women's 5000 metres. 15:07.45 Emelia Gorecka 15:11.52 Jo Pavey 15:24.40 Helen Clitheroe 15:27.90 Kate Avery 15:29.94 Katie Brough Who would you pick? The fastest three? Should the fact that Jo Pavey and Helen Clitheroe and over forty come into it? Would you try...

Re: England CWG Team

Of course the selectors must be able to use discretion, especially in the case of the CG, where it wasn't possible to have a formal trial. But I think the selectors' panel is too restricted, and that it should have a voting member who isn't part of the UKA/EA performance management team, but is a re...

Re: Tyson Gay banned for one year

So now a date is set for Tyson Gay to compete against Gatlin in July. The meet directors should be ashamed of themselves. But does this mean that the IAAF have chosen not to contest the pathetic one-year ban? Are we ever going to find out the details?

Re: GB Big Guns AWOL 2014

Speaking of the 'facts' jeremy1 is so keen on referring to, I'd point out that it's not EA or UKA's decision to have such an early selection date, it's the organisers of the Commonwealth Games, and the date applies to all sports. Also, Chrissie O has an Achilles problem, though jeremy1 prefers to at...

No Holly Bleasdale this year. Not injured but wants to avoid competition this year. will commence PV in 2015.

Re: New British long jump record ?

Can it be assumed that Greg Rutherford's previous record of 8.35 at the same meeting in 2012 was set under the same conditions? If so, then if UKA had decided not to ratify the new mark, how could they have justified ratifying the previous one? I wonder if they were aware of exactly what the conditi...

Would this be a better event if it were held at the end of the season, not the beginning? The middle-distance relays would probably be of a higher standard then. A shot put relay might be interesting... Does anyone know who the England CG relay coaches are? I hope they'll make some better decisions ...

Quite a lot of no selections on the womens side. I think a few athletes like McColgan are not in the UK still.
