General results thread, August 2012

From twitter:

"Mutaz 2.35 over Grabarz 2.33 in Eberstadt, oly winner Ukhov 5th with 2.24."

Morgan Lake jumped a PB of 6.19 in the Under 17 champs at Bedford. I know it's foolish to get too excited about athletes when they're so young, but here's hoping she stays fit and motivated and can follow in KJT's footsteps.

On an absolutely stunning day for athletics yesterday, there were some good results in BAl Div. 1 at Windsor:

U20 Chijindu Ujah won the 100m in 10.31, while Luke Fagan beat Nigel Levine in the 200m in 20.60 to equal his PB. Ben Sumner ran 50.36 over the 400mh and Nigel Levine later anchored the winning relay team with a 45.5 split.

The Premiership results aren't out yet, but hopefully they'll be of a similar quality.

Really pleased to see people like Nigel turning out for his club - this is what will (and has in his case) inspire the youngsters - rubbing shoulders with people they've just seen at the OG (and Nigel running faster in a BAL meet than Dai in the OG final is a great way to respond to being dropped! :lol: )

Credit to Jack Green for bits and pieces he's doing in Kent, too - both guys positive young role models.

Oh, also Levine PB-ed in the 200m, 20.98.

But yeah, really brilliant to see him there.

As we're talking BAL, it is always disappointing how few of our top athletes regularly support the clubs' premier showcase.

Look at the results of the last Premiership match. With a few welcome exceptions, standards are pretty average across the board, and just count the number of "for a point" performances.

I really do wonder whether the club system as we know it has had its day. I'm not sure what the alternatives are though.

Also wonder how all the fair weather fans who emerged at the OG were sufficiently inspired to go along to see some "top level" domestic athletics at BAL fixures? Yep, thought not.

Sorry for hijacking the thread.

Sorry for more thread hijacking.

While it is certainly true that very few of our top athletes turn out for their clubs these days, most of them wouldn't be where they are now without the grounding they had as young club athletes.
