Re: Outdoor season 2014

Steve Cram was surprised by the time as he knew Ujah was just behind. Amazing for both Muir and Ujah!

Re: Gotzis

KJT doesn't need a big SP as long as her javelin is over 45 m and she gets a HJ around 188-192 as there's so much more in her 200, LJ , 100 h and 800 to come relative to Moscow 2013

Re: IAAF World Relays

Why did they not enter teams in more/all events? This meet seems like fun and it celebrates our sport. Shame on UKA!

Re: Morgan Lake

Can't see her taking up that challenge, though.


Why not?
Lovely place, most of the best CE athletes there, no pressure... She can have fun...All this provided there was already a plan for her to do a heptathlon that weekend.

Re: Greg Rutherford Fan Interview, Any Questions ?

How's his sprint endurance? What does he think his 400m potential is?
What does he do to get his VMO ( the inner quad) muscle so developed?

Re: New British long jump record ?

Congrats to GR. Never understood why his achievements are subjected to depreciation attempts. Whenever he's injury free we get great jumps/distances and good championship results. He has the longevity many 1-2 season only LJers fail to demonstrate. Btw, I don't think its fair to judge his talent by ...

Re: World Indoors Day 3

We'll need a healthy PSD and a breakthrough athlete to hope for a Euro/C'wealth gold in w4x400 this summer. Christine is prob on (her) long term schedule and Sopot was a slight distraction.

Re: BBC coverage plumbs new depths of awfulness?

The football coverage doesn't include 1) going away from the action to show 'artistic' clips of footballers' bodies alongside Ricky Martin's living la vida loca; 2) doing away with live action to show us how silky smooth someone's body/face whatever is; 3) back to the studio for a chat during live a...

Re: BBC coverage plumbs new depths of awfulness?

Dear me, Phil just said that they're at the mercy of the host broadcaster when it comes to showing field events. We all know this is not true ( even if he meant showing Brits only). Eurosport coverage in 17 minutes, can't wait.

Re: BBC coverage plumbs new depths of awfulness?

Eurosport starts their coverage at 3.00 today so I'm stuck with the BBC for an hour. They're interviewing R Kilty ( who's handling himself well) but the only non- emotional / reality show question came from Denise - is he gonna be doing the 200m. I wish they treated football like this and see what b...

Re: Salazar to be UKA consultant on endurance

Is it really the coach that sets the S&C routine or do they have physics, physiologists and sports scientists presenting options to the coach and athlete who then choose the regimen that fits them the best?
I find it hard to believe that the Oregon Project athletes depend on Salazar alone.

Re: IAAF qualifying standards

The national selections will still be pretty much the same across the globe, with the exception of nuances due to the qualifying period and the daily changes in the top 32. From a UK perspective it is still possible that and A standard with a top 32 will not get you selected if the set the Q criteri...

Re: Was Darren Campbell a world class athlete?

He's a (some would even say double) olympic champion, European champion, warrior against doping...
I'd rather see dozens of Darrens and Jasons hovering around 9.98-10.0 with great races than having my enjoyment of athletics dampened by thinking who will go down next by WADA.

Re: Funding 2014 - who is in/out?

Lisa Dobriskey has had seven consecutive years of reaching the 1500m final in the respective year's major championship. This is an event where anyone that makes the final usually has a reasonable medal chance. She missed out this year due to injury. I find it hard to believe that L Clarke has a grea...

Re: Funding 2014 - who is in/out?

Child has more podium potential than Pozzi or L Clarke based on the past two seasons, improvement and injury history.
They should swap places in my opinion.
I'm incredibly glad S McKinna is funded ( same with I Pooley) as it sends the right message.
