Re: Morgan Lake

I feel she should go to the world juniors in the heptathlon or the high jump. She is young, talented and attractive girl and is marketable, so being away from the british public eye and learning her craft i think is a good thing. If i were her I would want to go to the juniors and compete especially...

If they stay fit and healthy over the next 5 years they are going to push each over. Its going to 11.2 and 22.6 or better shape just to make teams.

Re: World Junior Championships

I meant 1996. If you were born 31 December 1995 you are eligible for the years 2011-2014. You still get to compete for 4 years as you turn 16 in 2011 and your last year being a junior is 2014 as turn 20 in 2015. The peson lucky enough to be born a day later does not turn 16 until 2012 the year they ...

Re: Wonder what Mo thinks

London is a higher quality of field and can always be a bit cagey in the early stages. Mo will sit in the pack and react to the other runners. I think he will run about 2 hours 7 and 8 outside the top 3. I am still unconvinced Mo can be a top marathon runner but I hope i am wrong.

Re: World Junior Championships

With them being in America I expect it to be a very strong team by the host nation. All the events up to 400 for both the men and women will be loaded. It will be tough to medal.

Re: Another world record, this time the half marathon.

I'd prefer the powers that be to accept that pacing is a valid method for assisting a WR and allow pacers to join the race later on with fresh legs in the mens events which would then nullify the argument for questioning women's records achieved with male pacers. On a slight tangent, I can't ever r...
