Re: long hurdles

Turner had achilles surgery and has not even started running yet......and of all the single events jess could focus on I think that would be a terrible one for her....100 hurdles (shes world class at already), high jump or even 200m....400 hurdles is a different animal altogether

Re: Next Stop London. All Change, Please.

The problem , in my opinion, lies in the schools PE programmes . Every school should have a well qualified, all-round athletics coach, capable of passing on good basic skills in most events. These coaches should come through the educational system where a career in PE is not viewed as a poor mans a...

Re: The ups and downs of the Worlds and British spritning

'Maybe we should be congratulating Malcolm and Devonish for keeping their hamstrings together for long enough to compete...' This statement is telling. I have also wondered about this. Anything to do with weightlifting? I ask this because of the preponderance of these injuries amongst British sprin...

Re: The ups and downs of the Worlds and British spritning

In terms of relays does anyone know why personnel weren't rotated in the heats and finals? i'm sure ellington and MLF would have got us to the final leaving say harry aa devonish or Malcolm fresh for the final

Sally Pearson 12.28

One of the top performances at the games by far tore apart a very good field, during her races they went on about sally's flat speed being the main factor to her dominance. With a sb of 11.2 and a pb of 11.14 Apart from jess and tiffany some of are hurdlers are closer to 12 than 11 in terms of 100m ...

Re: Poor form of British Sprinters?

Here is an idea.... Set up a national event squad and make them all train TOGETHER. raising competition in training will push them to be faster.... Sam - we will then get people claiming UKA have forced them to move and so on :roll: . Your idea certainly worked for cycling, where there are fewer fa...

Re: Poor form of British Sprinters?

Some random observations: Bolt, Gay, Powell are underperforming to the same extent as British sprinters this year (in relation to previous years performances). Is this because they are lazy or their coach is incompetent? You will generally only get 3/4 years at the top of your sport until your body...

Re: Poor form of British Sprinters?

I agree Teacher the 400 is really mind boggling and jimbojames I agree some blame has to be put on the athletes ive seen some athletes work ethic for my own eyes and its very poor a good quote a wise coach once told me "plant a tree bent and it will only grow to a certain length, straighten it ...

Why is no one blaming the athletes? All too easy to blame UKA/CVC, yet no one seems to know whether they want them to be more involved or less - you can't ask what they're doing and then quote the likes of Jodie being out of the system as the reason for her success compared to others Athletes need ...

Re: Poor form of British Sprinters?

I agree with Geoff but also dont over look the fact sprinting in particular 100-200 has come on leaps and bounds 19 men under 10 seconds in one year is insane athletes like jeter running 10.64 and a couple jamaican sprinters running 10.7 unfortunately GB sprinters has sort of stood still thus making...

Re: Poor form of British Sprinters?

Considering the continued investment in our sprinters in recent years, it seems a really sad state of affairs at the moment. Sure, there some bright spots, but on the whole, promising sprinters are not developing at all. Infact in a great deal of cases, they are getting worse. 100m-400m. It's not t...

Complaints about inaccuracies in reporting abound...but how about this...to-days Times reports, in an interview with Edwin Moses "In the 70's and 80's he was in the process of establishing himself as the best HIGH hurdler of all time" we get the press we deserve but this...... haha that i...

What's the betting that many other "name" GB athletes assured of their place in the Worlds will also pull out before the weekend? Just like Idowu last week. No sense of obligation to the ticket-buying public of course, yet in twelve months time they'll be begging for our support. They're ...

Re: Aviva World Trials and UK Champs

Ok, this is nothing against Marlon Devonish, but it really would be embarrassing if he makes the individual team. Where are Dasaolu and Alaka? I thought they'd put up a fight against the 'old guard'. Dasaolu is out injured for the rest of the season - Alaka perhaps peaked for U23s? Dasalou injured,...

That's the risk you run by turning up to a kiddies competition when you are already established as arguably the best in the world.
