Charlie Grice, who's not 17 until November, put in a superb performance to clock a huge PB of 1:50.61 over 800m at the BMC Regional Races at Eltham on Wednesday, taking nearly five seconds off his previous best of 1:55.6 set early in the season. Primarily a miler, it's going to be very intruiging to see how much he can knock off his PB of 3:48.70 over his specialty on his new-found speed. Watch out for this guy!

You should also consider that as it's his second run of the season, and the first was a championship race which he won, this may just be the natural progression of a guy who has knocked 10seconds off his 1500m time this season and is actually an indication of him being a faster athlete this year than last all round - especially as there would have been some focus in training on the 1000m he ran in Moscow.

FMR - words out of my mouth! I wouldn't read too much into his old PB - just hadn't been in that fast a race before now. I'd have expected that sort of time, based on his other PBs tbh - he's gone from 3.58 to 3.48 over 1500m, and now 1.55 to 1.50 over 800m

I've got that in mind but also take into account that he's a guy growing up still, not even 17 yet, so huge improvements can fall in via this way too.

Matti Mortimore, just 17, threw a big new PB of 66.98m at the National Junior Athletic League Southern Premier match in Norwich yesterday to add well over three and a half metres to his previous figure. Looks like he's stepping on the gas again!

Apparently matti fouled a 70m throw as well. Not bad for a first year U20 with 2 more years left. I always said this lad would be good when I first saw him chucking 40m way back when times were easier than now!

Well done fella and good to see you back on track after such a long time out and good to see fulfilling your potential again!

just got in from exeter open meet. Considering that this was the start of the first peak for his season, after pbing in his tests including over head shot measuring his power and bench press measuring his gross strength this afternoon Brett Morse threw another 'b' standard of 62.82m and a good series (62.82, 56, 61.72, 61.80, foul 62ish, 62.58m) in a cross wind which didn't really help that much, if anything pushed the disc over in flight. 2nd best throw ever in a week where we had planned to be somewhere else. Ryan SPencer Jones - his training partner also following the programme threw a big discs pb of 55.25m to make the power of ten standard for his second event and threw 17.57m in the shot afterwards to push for Welsh commonwealth games place for both events. Changing a flat tyre on the way wasn't much fun!

Apart from Brett Morse's excellent series topped by his second farthest ever throw of 62.82m in the discus in Exeter, there have also been a few other notable performances on the domestic front midweek.

Headliner was U23 Alison Leonard who carved out a substantial new PB of 2:01.89 in a mixed 800m race at Stretford last night, enhancing her chances of earning a place for Delhi. Her previous mark of 2:02.15 dated back to 2008.

Danielle Christmas came home a place behind in also a big new PB of 2:02.55, erasing her former mark of 2:03.17 set at the BMC Grand Prix at Solihull earlier this month.

Up a distance, former European U23 5000m champion Laura Kenney won her heat in 4:18.8, a SB.

On the men's side, 20-year-old Chris Harvey stood out as he knocked over a second off his PB to 1:49.20 to take the men's 800m main race.

Warren Frey followed in second in 1:49.45, slightly off his PB, with David Proctor in third in a PB of 1:49.50 to make 43 the Brits under 1:50 this season, the best figure in over a decade in the event.

U20 James Bowness was fourth in 1:49.73 with U23 Chris Smith a spot behind in a SB of 1:50.10, a 1:48.20 U20 performer two years ago.

Morpeth's Jonathan Taylor was the winner over 1500m in 3:44.89.

Thanks a lot for the results! To begin with, I'm pleased to see Craig Mottram showing glimpses of his best in the shape of that 7:50.90 again and hopefully he could be gearing up to the top of his game come London in 2012.

That 7:52.99 was quite a shocker from Ryan McLeod as it was his first ever run under 8 mins in every environment, previous best a 8:00.14 indoors last year, and that could see him knock a big chunk off his recent PB of 13:54.43 over 5000m. Hopefully, he could get a place on the starting line at Crystal Palace to stage his bid.

There was a SB and second fastest time ever of 7:51.95 a place ahead for Mumin Gala so the two of them could be aiming at something in the mid to low 13.30s next month.

Andy Vernon has not been quite in the form he was in the States in spring but he's working his way back there and could be hoping to run some good times next month, that 7:55.45 was encouraging, while Ricky Stevenson is still struggling to follow up on the form he showed indoors. Nonetheless, one to watch over the following seasons.

There was a PB for Neilson Hall in 8:03.93 whereas Jermaine Mays endured a poor run way back in 8:24...

Over to the men's 800m, very talented Andie Osagie has hit the ground running on his return to action as he swept within just 0.03 secs of his PB of 1:47.15 in his first race of the summer - unfortunately, too late for the Europeans.

Along with also U23 Joe Thomas, who ran a massive SB of 1:47.07 to win the race, they could be both eyeing something under 1:46 by the end of the season and a place at the Commonwealths in October.

Superb PB of 4:17.44 over 1500m from 15-year-old Jessica Judd there, with 16-year-old Georgia Peel some way behind in 4:20.87 (SB)!

Smart move on Georgia's part to run the 800m at English Schools! She was really happy to have won a title after the race, and I have a feeling that Jess would have owned her in Birmingham if she hadn't switched distances

I've got to say that I'm impressed by Jessica Judd's running style and efficiency, she's got great potential.

I'm of the notion, on the other hand, that the A men's 800m pacemaking was a disaster *laugh*, thankfully both Joe Thomas and Andie Osagie got some useful times on the brink of 1:47 and can look forward to more.
