A number of top athletes will be missing, given the UKA call to not let athletes do the ES and the WJ, without special dispensation

Is this a County error/gamble or UKA dispensation? I fear a Judd-like repeat!

UKA say you can't do both (without special consideration) - and that it's likely to only be those who are just running relays in Barcelona who would get the nod. I thought Dina was doing an individual event?

Of course, she could have been entered as a back up plan, in case she didn't get the WJs nod...

She might not do it but all we know is that she has been selected for her county. it doesn't mean she will attend.

True, eastv - we'll soon find out...! Don't know why ES can't just hold back 24 hours, so counties an select as many of their strongest athletes as possible, rather than take gambles and lose slots

Will Owin Sinclair go sub-11?

Will Ronnie Wells beat George Perkins this time?

Can Leon Reid win to redeem himself?

Am I allowed to be impressed with that, or does that come under 'hysterical hype on a young athlete'? :D

Owin Sinclair 10.92 breaking one of MLF's hugely impressive national age group records in the Juniors. Very polished biomechancially as well, hope he sticks with it.

As always be impressed with the natural talent but the key for these 13/14/15 year olds is to continue to improve at a good rate.

Is it just coincidence that his club is Charnwood, whose home track is Loughborough?

Owin is coached by the club coach at Charnwood, Phillip Evans, and still only trains twice per week.

I hear that the athletes/spectators at the outside throwing field were treated with the usual contempt by the organisers, AW and SKY.

No temporary seating provided, temporary toilets for the athletes, none for spectators. Two flexiglass shelters, that both blew over in the wind, as they were not anchored. In each case this could have resulted in fatal consequences.

No food outlet, no drinks outlet, both of which would have earned a fortune.

Footballs encroaching on the competition areas, from the adjacent all weather pitches. These had not been closed as would have been the case for any other sport's National Championships.

Neither SKY, nor any photographer attended this area. AW's pics being mug shots from the medal ceremonies.

AW online and the Magazine ran a headline piece on Abbey Carter wining 6 consecutive medals in the Hammer. This cannot happen, as ther is no Junior Ladies (U15) Hammer. She won 2 discus and 4 hammer, a great achievement, but marred by bad reporting and lack of credibility checks.

Still, nothing more than the thrower's ever expect.

SIAB Int. starting soon

I can't believe that it is held in Ashford what an unimportant venue. If anywhere it should really be in Olympic park like the UK School games.
