Re: UK Sprint Queens

On another note I see Baby O has kicked off her 400 metre outdoor season with a 52.91 run. Last year she started with 54.64 and dropped to 52.62 as her best performance........ If she can do the same this year there's a real replacement for Lee McConnell? Just saying..........lots of talent seems to...

Re: New British long jump record ?

Steve - I so agree with you. Guys and girls are pushing themselves to achieve more than they ever have before and the commitment and passion they show surely must rub of on those watching and competing with them. Think the 1991 Relay event we'll not see the like of again. Or at least for a very long...

Re: New British long jump record ?

Having read the posts here I think its fair to say we really have a bunch of 'negativvies' - invented don't bother looking up for correctness! - armchair judges who plainly know better than the guy staring straight at the take-off board...... - then the concern about it being a legitimate meeting......

Re: New British long jump record ?

Yes caught it on twitter as well.

Good performance to go with a kick up the a** for some of the doubters regards Gregs Performance and his potential.

Hope he consolidates soon and goes on to stretch the record further. Well done.........for a Ginge!

Re: Pistorius trial

I must say my gut feel is that he's guilty and I am not enamoured by either his performance or his legal guys........attack is the best means of defense.

Re: Zharnel Hughes

I have to say that all this bickering about thin and that is a turn off from the Forum.

Frankly it smacks of mental masturbation..........nothing really good comes from it.

Re: BRITISH WOMEN 800MTS

Actually its shaping up to be a very interesting season. Mebbe not so much internationally - but you never know. So - as my moniker says Sprintfan some random thoughts: Dasaolu/Gemili - how has their training together helped? - but is Gemili OK? No Indoor outings? Clarke - delivering on his early pr...

Re: BRITISH WOMEN 800MTS

Mump. Have not looked at Judd or Muirs 400 speed but if they're managing 55ish at the moment isn't that pacey enough for their ages? And they're focus is 800? I think either or both will break the current British record. 2016/2017 maybe

Re: Young athletes to watch out for in 2014

Ursus,

You miserable curmugeon!

What would Gemili have to achieve for you to say he was World Class? Beat Beast and Bolt in 19.18?

FFS. He's 20!!!

How many sub 20 second 20 year old's were there last year? The Year before?

Happy New Year.

Re: What's next for Christine Ohuruogu?

As usual the same mealy mouthed negative thinkers imagining the worst possible scenario........ I think a number of the negative thinkers have forgotten how late teens and early 20's students can be total 'dipsticks' and screw absolutely everything up in their power.

Re: Men's Sprints in Moscow

Agree Kingmaker. Talbot and Ellington show better results for the 200 than Kilty who seems to have focussed on the 100 this year. Good result in C-L-F but looks kinda isolated compared to the others results. Allow Gemili to focus on one event - and the relay - and lets see what he can do. Could he g...

Re: Outdoor Results 2013

SteveK.

That is exactly the point.

I have really enjoyed the big names mentioned from the 80-90's - as well as the 400m guys we had. But its gone. Great memories and I'm happy to get behind and the current crop of our top athletes.

And some of the not so top athletes trying to come through.

Re: British Athletics European Trials and UK Champs 9-10th F

Just to support other positive comments about Holly B. Good progress for her over the last year and to be vaulting 4.77 in early February and even thinking about 4.90 bodes very well for her future. 'Flunker' statements are completely out of order! She seems quite tall and powerfully built for a fem...

Re: Womems & Mens 400 and relay prospects for the Euro indoo

Eilidh Child runs 52.06 indoors......maybe a bit quicker in the final. Another good omen for the 4 x 400?

And of course her 400H times should improve!

Re: Brussels DL 7 September (Merritt 12.80 WR)

Am a user of the IAAF site for these Diamond League Meetings and have found the site very slow and 'clunky' this year. Didn't last year or previously.

I'm using Google Chrome as its normally faster with most sites.......any others struggling this year?
