Re: Sopot Team

does anyone else blink twice when they see Sophie Papps run... and think that's a young Kathy Cook! If Ms. Papps goes on to perform like her, then that would be rather special...

Re: Young athletes to watch out for in 2014

thinking of young athletes.... any news about Yasmin Miller... I was impressed with her indoor form last year and her general demeanour struck me as someone to watch out for... haven't seen her involved this year...any news?

Re: Indoor Trials 8-9 February 2014

How refreshing to watch, at length, a women's triple jump ... if it had been the Beeb we would have had 1) cut to a voxpop of Tom Daley talking about his "coming out" 2) A Bolt trailer 3) an incoherent CJ discussing the political ramifications of flooding on the Somerset Levels... Still co...

Re: KJT 1.96 NR. Wow!!!

Superb work KJT (if you do read this) On the whole, the coverage of yesterday's events were very good and I did enjoy the chap's commentary; so well done, Kris. Although I am disappointed that all I have been able to see, of what must have been a fabulous build up to the record jump, is a slow motio...

AllanW that was one of the most insightful, well written and comprehensive postings I think I have ever read on this, or any other, forum that I visit. Thank you.

Re: 2014 Multi Events

Hi All...

Any comment on today's action at the Combined Events Indoor International Match ...

I was looking for news on PBs/ stand out performances... did take a peek at the results but couldn't really work it out ... then noticed a DNS against Morgan Lake... I hope she is OK.

Re: GB Female Sprinters & Relay

Great post, PJS. But did you ask Asha and Jodie about the relay? :wink: Lol... I'm afraid I will never make an investigative journalist as I didn't ask the right question! And yes, mump boy, I was proud of the fact that despite her being wrapped up to the hilts in woolly hat etc etc I knew it was A...

athletes on come dine with me

Did anyone else catch 4 of our best loved athletes on "Come dine with Me" last night? If not, it was actually quite fun to get a different insight into Dalton Grant, Fatima Whitbread, Zola Budd and Kris Akabusi. I have to say Fatima looked incredibly well conditioned - she has to be over 5...

Re: Funding 2014 - who is in/out?

PJS - I'd say the vast majority on graduate schemes are paid for potential rather than performance. In my experience, whilst they might occasionally be useful, they in no way offer value for money for what they actually do, but the learning they receive means they'll be valuable assets in the futur...

Re: Funding 2014 - who is in/out?

I just want to say that no one in the industry I work in gets paid for "potential" but rather "performance". I think we all agree that very few of the athletes on any of the funding streams will actually win a medal at Rio 2016. what can we hope for 8 medals, in athletics, at bes...

Re: Worst ever field results at a major championship

Hi diskobolus I dont disagree with finding incentives to keep those already engaged in the sport... but I am talking about late developers... all that potential who matured physically much later and so were never involved in throws at school...

Re: Worst ever field results at a major championship

Time for athletics to do a 'sporting champions' type selection process like rowing did? I keep repeating this, ad nauseam, but British Athletics is not proactive in talent identification... The "sporting giants" scheme was a very positive attempt - involving a number of sports including r...

Re: BBC Athletics Presenters

A new poster I may be... but my love of athletics stretches back to my school boy days (of moderate success) at Carterhatch Lane in the days when Steve Crabb was going to be the next big thing...

Re: Brussels Diamond League

I am really disappointed with the British athletes...

if they were hungry and had to put meals on tables with their winnings from such races maybe, just maybe, they might have had better results ...

Re: BBC Athletics Presenters

By the way, was that some kind of new record for awfulness of BBC coverage? They hardly bothered to show any event startlists, just cut from rambling about "we know what MJ stands for!", or some-such drivel, to the starting gun. And then at the end of a race - can we have a result shown? ...

I always aim for balance... and I have been very critical of CJ...but, to be very fair, he has added some useful information to the commentary of the women's 100 hurdles...
