It's nice to see you staying loyal, but this is their 3rd head to head, IIRC, this season - UK U23s - Okoye, Euro U23s - Okoye, so 2-1 in favour of Lawrence. Lawrence needs more consistency as he does tend to throw big or throw fouls, but I just don't think today alone can be the basis of choosing the 3rd place when they're evenly matched.

I'm sure the selectors were hoping at least one of them was top 2, and probably both - and that Carl would qualify for the shot - would have made their lives much easier!

Germaine Mason and Ben Challenger are on the high jump startlist :shock: ???

Can anyone confirm if they are actually there?

3a - I beg to differ, Phillips' goal is to defend his World title not win the national title. Heavy training 5 weeks before the main goal is not a bad idea especially if he is looking to do speed work to taper in the remaining few weeks.

Paulouk she most definitely is - in the legend's relay along with Kathryn Merry and John Regis amongst others.

Challenger has competed 7 times this year according to Power of 10. Best of 2.11.

I can't get the results up - blank page.

Typical - Diamond League, Euro U23, Euro Juniors, instant results - we arrive in Birmingham and er.....a blank page!

I don't expect round by round field event results ( although all the above managed it ) but not viewing the results of COMPLETED events is a bit poor....

Working OK for me - have you tried scrolling up, as that got me the first time! What event are you after - can post for you perhaps?

Thanks jimbo - Doh!! Scroll up indeed, but it would be nice for round by round results in the field events - especially as a lot of them will be over before the BBC starts transmission. On that subject, I paused yesterday's BBC coverage - it was 16 minutes in before we saw any live action!

15 women in the Long Jump - (other than Shara and the heptathletes) one of them must be able to jump a B standard, surely :?

Sorry but, if the likes of Felix, VCB and Rudisha can compete in their national champs.....so can Phillips Idowu. He'd probably have skipped it had it been 3 weeks ago.

Isn't Ugen a teenager?

6'44 for Jessica is promising. She will definitely need 6'50 + to beat Chernova in Daegu/London

I don't disagree with your point (I think top athletes owe it to the sport to be at the champs and major DL meets - if injured and unable to compete, they could at least do the meet and greet part) BUT the athletes you mentioned are poor choices - the depth is such in their country they have to compete to be sure. Sadly, with Nathan out and other guys changing country, there really isn't much to stop PI getting on the plane.

Note, in the USA, defending world champs with a bye still have to compete in an event to get selected - so they do force the athletes to compete...

Yes she is until 22 August.

That's assuming Chernova has her good championship head on - it has often been absent the last few years.

She's doing 200 at crystal palace and then calling it a day for the year. She just told me.

Speaking of radio, I have often found that using a radio on a pc while doing other things can slow the system down (as well as having too many tabs open!). In the past I have resorted to using an internet toolbar, but this can cause security problems. Today I have download a stand alone radio that so far has caused no problems - no buffering, no slow tabs, no memory drain.

http://download.cnet.com/RadioSure/3000 ... ag=mncol;3

3a in the case of Felix and Richards-Ross they wanted to qualify in other events to see if it was possible to double up at the OG and Richards-Ross needed race time due to a curtailed winter of illness/injury. Felix has tried this season in a DL to double up and may do so next weekend in preparation for her real test in the WC, depending on how that turns out she will then decide if she can do it next year.

It seems to me that you have a problem with Phillips, who did get permission from UKA to miss the event and didn't make the announcement on his twitter feed.

I hope she gets the British Junior record - something like 22.5/22.6 is just what she needs before next year - but for the headwind at Euro Juniors, she'd probably have it now

And it's not like the rest of the women have powered on in the 200m today - I hope at least one, and maybe two go sub-23, but beyond the top 2 girls, there's little happening today

Parsons, Bernard and Grabarz (at least) clear over 2.28m :D

ETA: Which is where they finish - in that order

Daniel Awde nearly won the 'B' final with 46.04. Levine and Bingham just 0.03 ahead in 46.01 but beat Conrad Williams!

Both guys under the B standard. Shame the wind wasn't a bit more favourable as we could have had a couple of A qualifiers instead.

OMG the first lap of the 5k is at a pace worse than primary school kids run 600m! How do athletes think they are going to get the standard at a pace worse than a jog?
