British 100m and 200m sprinting

Postby Teacher » Fri Jun 29, 2012 9:10 pm

What an absolutely shocking 2012 for British sprinters. Olympic year in your home country and the times that have been run are awful.

There has been some debate on here in the past and people were saying "but the world level is so good now, that it makes it harder for our sprinters".


If we can't get at least a couple of lads running 10.05/20.20 during this monumental year for British sport, then it is a sad state of affairs. There is the talent there because many have run at that level before, but there seems to be a sytemic issue with the sprinters. Too many injuries, poor attitudes and generally a decline in performance after promising early careers.

To think that Christian and Dwain can quite comfortably still get a slot is quite sad.

Too much funding? Too easy for them?

Or just poor coaching?

I have to admit, I don't see many (if any) British sprint coaches really progressing our athletes. Something is not right.

Thank goodness for the hurdlers and Malcolm Arnold.
