This guy is getting better and better at the age of 29. Who knows he may progress further and achieve the 'A' standard but qualifying is obviously going to be very difficult. Having said that all it needs is a good run in the trials and one or two to have a mishap!

At this stage you'd have to say it's Turner who could be vulnerable, but I'm confident he''ll pull it out come the trials..

Both he and Sharman have found form from nowhere before, but Sharman has more of a knack of it than Turner; going to be a great race at Trials, as none of them can rely on the selectors' nod IMO

Will Sharman is due to race in Bydgoszcz today along with quite a number of other Brits.

I think Chambers is racing somewhere on the continent as well.

Sharman was well beaten today in Poland with 13.85 into a headwind. The winner was Brit by marriage :wink: Jeff Porter in 13.41.

Oliver Newport's big breakthrough in LJ at the England Closed Championships was mentioned yesterday: he's just 17 and went from a previous best of 7.19 (7.23w) to 7.70. This jump came in round 6, but unfortunately the distance sheet only shows wind speeds for (most of) the first 3 rounds: no reading is shown for any jump in rounds 3-6. I wonder if this is just an oversight? Surely they wouldn't have neglected to take readings?

And a PB for Gareth Warburton of 1.46.31. I wonder who will snatch the third men's 800m place?

And the win. The win is not insignificant.

Great work from Weightman likewise.

And Warburton's PB too.


And Lee and Nicola got Olympic Bs,
which won't mean anything in the end, but its a step in the right direction.

Joe Thomas is out for the season. This was posted 2 hours ago

No Olympics or track season for me this year. A few lengthy battles with niggles has resulted in a stress fracture! http://pic.twitter.com/9TaOBdjV

Someone once posted that at any one time 20% of our best are injured at any one time. If that includes "partial" injury is that not close to the truth. Thomas,Pickering, any other sprinters? Talbot,?There are a number of others who figured in the 2011 lists who seem to be "missing" this golden year.Sotherton?

Olympic A for Pavey.

But not an A or B yet for Purdue. :(

I think Danny Talbot's lack of racing is just due to his studies! He's due to race on the 9th. Even after the recent fast 200m times I still think he'll be our top man at that distance.

Paul, Charlotte Purdue has already got the B standard from Stanford - 32:03.55. That's enough to get her into the Euros. I wonder if she'll try and find another 10,000, or go for the 5,000?

Carl Myerscough threw 20.10 in Walnut, an Olympic 'B' standard. Only 58.75 in the discus.

Here's a lovely interview with Jo Pavey after that 10,000 metres. She hasn't ruled out 2016, and she wants to run at the Euros in Helsinki.
