Chris Tomlinson mentioned the 6.80 was done in Bulgaria. No idea where.

I just love it when someone leaps from obscurity onto centre stage. Well done Ms Irozuru! I hope she'll back it up at the trials. She was on the 'Futures' programme a couple of years ago, but then her progress stalled for a while and she got dropped. I think she used to be coached by John Herbert, but switched at some point to Larry Achike.

Bulgaria, hold on surely that is dodgy! Don't they build long jump run ups that are affected by the wind to an extent that you get a wind assisted jump without it recording as such. Also heard that the stadium is downhill and apparently the Daily Mail have reported that CVC was in the country bribing the meeting organisers. Oh and with that name surely she is some plastic import Brit from the Falkland Islands!

Emelia Gorecka ran 15.34 for 5000m at Watford which makes her the third fastest junior ever, after Zola Budd and Charlotte Purdue.

Together with the ''smugometer'' and the ''boreometer''.
Are we going to get these sort of posts everytime someone records a decent performance?

In fairness there is a famous meet in Bulgaria where some well dodgy times , distances , heights come out of. But it's not this one.

Oops, looks like another missed the sarcasm! Just to hit it home, well done to the young lady. Very pleased for her and it will be great to see another young talent in the team.

Sorry if I misunderstood your post.
I thought this was another reference to the performances the other day that caused all the arguments. :oops:

Steve don't worry. I find the posts doubting performances quite exasperating. All athletes are capable of magnificent one off performances, and when they achieve them it is great to see. I also find the whole aspect of blaming athletes for competing in favourable circumstances and locations quite distasteful.

Positive - Judd, Zak Seddon (he might well be a B standard or better next year and is an U20)
Negative - where the hell was Lisa Dobriskey? With Hannah injured enough from a spiking to miss Trials, Lisa really needed to be top 2 there. At this rate, she'll need to get the A standard at the Trials - a risky business given the depth (albeit not WC elite level)

Although on the start list it was mentioned in an updated bit of the preview on the BMC site that Lisa had withdrawn due to injury...but no mention of what...

Twitter reporting that Peri Shakes-Deayton set a PB of 51.24 for the 400 at Bedford. Olympic A.

Isobel Pooley has cleared 1.90 at BIG. That's a 2 cm PB and enough to take her to the Euros, where - maybe - another 2 cm and the Olympic B awaits. Maybe Abigail Irozuru inspired her!

Now I think if it, judging by the interview she gave Athleticos after the England champs, the answer is probably her intention to stop striving and just enjoy competing.

Just seen a news report that Usain Bolt's been in a car smash in Jamaica. No reports of him being hurt.

Looks pretty minor...

Certainly less spectacular than his big 2009 smash.

Probably the first time the Leeward Islands Junior Championship has been mentioned on this site.
http://bvi.milesplit.com/meets/116050/results/204401

Here's the reason.
Scroll down and you'll see Zharnel Hughes of Anguilla (born July 1995) ran 10.45 in the 100 final.
You'll know by now that Anguillans have to compete for GB at the Olympics or not at all.
Equivalent of 3rd on the all-time GB u17 lists.

having browsed other results from Bedford, PSD's timeis looking more impressive. The wind for the final 100m of the race would have been approx -1.6 and if you look at the other times compared to their seasons best PSD did well.

Lets hope she can get those hurdles times down at the trials.

He is too old to be an under 17 under UKA rules but is currently an under 18 under IAAF rules.

I stand corrected. :-)
He backed it up with a 21.26 200 with a 2.0 wind against him.

Noticed that Sean Molloy ran 1.48.24 as an U17 - a massive UK best beating the old 1.49.9. One to watch for.

If Lisa D can get top two at the trials (in itself a difficult proposition if she isn't truly fit) she could still get the A standard at the Euros, and pull out before the final if she bagged the time in the heats.
