Re: Outdoor season 2014

42.91 for Sophie-Anyika-Jodie-Desiree and 43.53 for Asha-Ashley-Hayley-Bianca Add in Dina and you've got a hell of a pool there, posting times not far off last year's WC time Be afraid... :lol: Great times. A few years ago, our ladies ran 43.7 (around that) at the European Team Champs, 2010 or 11 I...

Re: Outdoor season 2014

Loads of Brits competing stateside over the next few days - especially keen to see some of these results http://www.gatorzone.com/trackfield/tour/jonesmemorial/2014/heats.pdf I noticed the name Issajenko on the start lists. Surely that is the daughter of Angella Taylor-Issajenko? Interesting, I'll ...

Re: Zharnel Hughes

While most countries fought for Independence in the '60s, Anguillan people rebelled against the associated state formed between themselves and St Kitts & Nevis in favour of staying with Britain. Having been to Guyana, I received an extremely warm welcome and people were quite excited to hear I w...

Re: Melissa Breen

Great run - Both Breen and Pearson took advantage of perfect conditions. Warm, blue skies, strong gusty tailwinds all afternoon that luckily just stayed legal for her 11.11. Hard to see her reproducing this at sea-level with less perfect conditions, but when these days come you have to take them.

Re: drugs

Re: drugs

I am more worried about what is happening in Jamaica and Kenya myself. Huge lack of out-of-competition tests. Even the USA one could argue, are not doing enough. It just makes it appear like a systematic cover up from the top down, and It would be no surprise if we found out certain national agencie...

Re: Indoor season 2013/14

I haven't seen these results posted anywhere online, but they are reported on the European Athletics site, can anybody confirm the following. Sophie Papps - 7.27 at Southern Champs? If accurate, that is a hugely impressive improvement, given her height and the fact that she is usually not too explos...

Re: GB Female Sprinters & Relay

I would be disappointed to see Annabelle Lewis lose her third leg spot in the team - She ran well at the Anniversary games and she was Superb in Moscow, great third leg runner. Dina-Nelson-Lewis would be my first three legs. Fastest of Philip & Williams get anchor. Anyika is a fair bit older tha...

Re: What's next for Christine Ohuruogu?

Absolutely a legend of British Athletics. She is not running in a weak era either... Montsho has become a prolific sub 50seconds athlete, Sanya Richards-Ross is (I think) the most prolific sub 50seconds runner of all-time. Also - The standard in the women's 400m is skewed due to the affect doping ha...

Re: Public Warning for Veronica Campbell-Brown

As Shivfan said this makes the foreign press look stupid. But it also makes Jada look stupid and incompetent (once again). They need to publish a report detailing their findings and reasoning regarding this case, otherwise I'm afraid people will just become increasingly suspicious of their conduct. ...

Re: Adam Gemili

British sprinting has lots of potential for the future. World Junior Champions over both 100 and 200 for the men. Two British juniors running 20.6 over 200 this year. And the Women's side is arguably even better led by Dina Asher-Smith and also Jodie Williams and Desiree Henry. Obviously potential ...

Re: Women's 4x400m

Frankly I think people are being a tad optimistic about a couple of the British splits and we will not see a UK record here. Now watch me crash and burn as they run 3:19! What makes you say that?

I'm Imagining something like... Child (51.2) - Onuora/Cox (50.4) - Shakes Drayton (49.3) - Ohuruogu (49.0) = 3.19.90 Now of the other top nations... USA McCorory (50.2) - Felix (49.0) - Atkins (50.1) - Hastings (49.6) = 3.18.90 *If they run Spencer on 3rd I can't see past a split between 50.3-50.5.....

Re: Absolutely shameful! JADCO (Jamaica) tests 106 for 2012

The issues is not population but participation!

Iceland have extremely few athlete yet have performed more tests then Jamaica. Nobody can say that suspicion (At very least) is un-warranted. Jamaica NEED to be setting an example.

On a lighter note and hopefully more pleasing one for all - Good to see that the weather has cleared up a lot for Gateshead this weekend.

As there are 3/110ths of a second between Gemili and Dasaolu, how can one be world class but the other not? Gemili has all the potential in the world, but he hasn't yet put a time down that puts him in a different league to Dasaolu has he.... I don't think this is going anywhere haha. I just feel fo...

Re: European Team Championships Gateshead 2013

You make a great point mump. Thinking into the future for a second, how long has it been since British male sprinting had this much potential. So many options...Dasaolu, Talbot, Gemili, Ellington, Kilty, Bolarinwa are arguably the top tier now...but looking at ages, this team has the talent to break...

Re: European Team Championships Gateshead 2013

Very disappointed for Dasaolu. However, the top German sprinter is out - their relay will take a bit of damage and I now expected both France AND Italy ahead of Germany, whereas we should win IF we get the baton around. A team of Ellington-Dasaolu-Talbot-Gemili is the best in Europe right now, no do...

Re: European Team Championships Gateshead 2013

A packed gateshead always creates a great atmosphere. I prefer great head to heads to super quick times, distances or heights. Many people criticised the 2003 Paris WCH 100 mens final as it was relatibvely slow. It was a great race to watch though. This event is about someone predicted to get 4 poi...

Hmm, some interesting choices of athletes included for all the teams.
