Cheers Bevone :D a voice of reason in this madhouse :wink:

The facts being that we have a number of athletes running great times and fact is if anyone wants to beat them thery are going to have to find a great deal more time.

Possibly, we saw a discus competition from a circle with no cage! Probably all in accordance with IAAF rules and approved by the Swedish Athletics Federation but certainly would not have been allowed in this country. This follows on from the hammer competitions with no gates. The first video also shows the sector to be marked out at right angles to the orientation of the two circles, possibly for the benefit of a more favourable wind. Of course, none of this would have been permitted in the UK and, indeed, a competition such as the one in Hendon last weekend where Uduchuku threw 61m would not have been allowed as a qualifying performance (if someone had thrown the distance).

No doubt about the distances thrown but I was also wondering why Morse is not throwing as well as last year. What has changed, if anything, in his technique. Is he trying to be too quick across the circle or will it come good in time?

Well done -all - should have sent Bhudari to the Europeans! Olympic A though should secure him 3rd spot for London.

Was Buhari in both Gateshead and Hendon today. And was MLF in both Helsinki and Gateshead today?

Another useful throw came from Eden Francis with 17.10 in the shot.

Devonish got the B standard (20.64, +0.1) in the 200 in Switzerland today,
as well as a SB in the 100 (10.32, +0.1).

If he's got a race lined up tomorrow he could easily get the A.

In addition to the marks already mentioned, Annabelle Lewis won the 100m and equalled the 11.51 PB she set in Birmingham at the trials

The other interesting result from there is Emily Diamond running another sub-53 second 400m. This appears to be her first season over the distance and if she can take another second off by next summer we could be looking at a solid 4x400m relay fixture for years to come (and if she can take 2 seconds, happy days).

Unfortunately that's a mark against him. He was fairly similar in qualification in Daegu last year.

58.57 on Thursday, 65+ on Saturday.

Another one with Myerscough Syndrome?

I feel it for Oscar Pistorius...so close yet so far.

49.54 for Amantle Montsho---the London 400m is really shaping up to be spectacular.

At these championships Botswana also had:
Lydia Mashila - 52.65
Goitseone Seleka - 53.11
Oarabile Babolay - 58.37 (Hurdles)
A decent 4x4?

Well that's another circus not coming to London. No Bladerunner and no Beckham. The Olympics don't need a circus to publicise itself!

Meanwhile another high profile casualties not going - Priscilla Lopes-Schliep and Perdita Felicien both failed to qualify for Canada's team bound for London in a dramatic women's 100-metre hurdles final that saw heptathlete Jessica Zelinka emerge the winner. http://www.cbc.ca/sports/trackandfield/ ... hliep.html

Zharnel Hughes of Anguilla set a new PB and NR in the heats of the CAC Junior Championships in El Salvador with a run of 10.42 (+1.1) then won silver behind Minzie of Jamaica in the final with 10.46 (-0.5) yesterday.
Still 16 for another fortnight - good bet for final at World Juniors and a place on the British team for the 2016 Olympics.

Carl Myerscough threw a second B standard of the year at a meeting in Estonia with 20.13. This should be enough to gain selection for London.

All he needs now is a good hypnotist to convince him that the OS is really Estonia and it isn't 3rd August.

Just noticed that Alex Smith got a second current B standard at Hendon in the hammer. This should secure his place in London having also won the trials. Mark Dry has more B standards but the criteria only ask for two and he was beaten in Birmingham. Of course, they may decide not to send anyone!

16 year old Zharnel Hughes PB and NR for Anguilla 20.98 (into a 1.5 headwind) beating the best Jamaicans to win the CAC Junior 200 title in El Salvador.
At the risk of repeating myself - he's only eligible for Britain at the Olympics
