Just got some SILLY results from the dodgy Swiss meet ( where all ran fast last year). Laura Turner 100m W - 11.11 (+2) What a joke of a meet.

Glad she's staying with her coach and not doing stuff with MM at Pickets (especially with his hamstrings knowledge;-) Hi plyometric, I think when she said 'her coach' you would find that is still the Self Proclaimed Great one him...

100m, The relay team of Relay team of Pickering, Edgar, Harry AA, Williamson ran at the Europa and came home with 39.2secs. The British team still suffers from pure speed (without Block Starts) and bend runners. That is why Devonish, Fifton and Malcolm ( when he was in shape) would always run the be...

Isabre, watch the race again and you can see just before he pulled up he was fading. Have it occured to you that he might have overcooked the first 300 and the 2 guys had a little bit more? Anyway I dont think TB would feature in the world 400 running this year either becos of injuries or training n...

Kermit, Actually your last post is not correct. Mac is Employed by the UKA and on completion of his elite coaching course last year UKA had to employ him for a period. The coaches are sent to the course from different UK Olympics sports and that sports and UK Sports split the coaches salary. I think...
