Early outdoor 2012 results

Postby nevetssllim » Sat Mar 17, 2012 12:02 pm

Just noticed Lorraine Ugen set a marginally wind-aided 6.83m performance in the USA although she didn't jump again after that. Will be interesting to see if she can back this up.

That's a great jump even if slightly wind assisted. Could we possibly have more than one female long jumper in London?

I wonder who the real surprise athletes will be in our team? Who will make a big break through and qualify? I'm sure we're going to get a few more big performances like this from relatively unexpected quarters.

Lorraine Ugen apparently only took 3 jumps because she had to go over to the 100m where she ran a windy 11.61.

6.83! :shock: +2.8, but wind can hamper run ups as well as aid jumps.

She showed a lot of promise last year jumping 6.54 at the trials. I see on POT she has a 6.51iA listed at Alberquerque on 24 Feb as well, which has to be an indoor PB. Seems to be wintering well. I think her 11.61 may well be superior or equivalent to her 11.85 PB, if you believe in 'basic' conversions.

She's going to need an A standard of 6.75 (I think) to make it onto the team, so lets hope this kind of form continues into the summer. It would be wonderful to have two Brits there.

Good early season throwing from Goldie and Brett as well.

Nothing too great from the remaining British throwers in Montenegro. However, Nadine Muller threw the discus 68.89 and in the seperate under 23 comp (!) Sandra Perkovic threw 67.19.

Away from Montenegro and at under 20 level Nick Miller threw the 6k hammer 72.80 over in the States.

Goes to show what one mind can do. Bondarchuck now has 3 athletes over 20m in the shot in Canada as well as a few top hammer throwers of which Sultana isn one - and all from one small town of 50,000 people! Britain's Sophie Hitchon is also using his system with success down south as well.

Jade Johnson intends to be there too, so there's a chance we could have three long-jumpers.

Abi Oyepitan has run 22.75secs for 200m albeit windy (2.8m/s). Very promising!!

Amy Harris also jumped a windy 6.40m long jump.

I have been off-line due to moving home in NZ, and am desparately trying to catch up with news. Thank heavens for this forum to point me in the right direction!!
Fantastic performance from Lorraine Ugen, and not totally unexpected as she has been progressing steadily over the last few years. Potential finalist material for the London Games imo.

Just picked up on this but Dominic King achieved the Olympic 'B' standard in the 50k walk in Slovakia with a time of 4.06.34. When did we last have a walker in the Olympic 50k? Chris Maddocks?

I saw that and I'm delighted for him and Abi Oyepitan. I hope he's selected, given the aim of having athletes in as many finals as possible. Actually I'm not sure that's an official aim, but it would be good to have representatives in as many events as possible.

I'd like to see Abi back this up with at least a 23.0 with legal wind. She's so slight that I think a strong wind either way affects her more than most runners - she ran a 22.8x with a 2.8w in April last year, but finished the season with a 23.21 legal best :?

I think Niels de Vos said he wanted to see a British athlete in every event and a finalist in half of the events. We are not too far away from the first target with perhaps a doubt on half a dozen events. If the second target is top 8 then that may be a taller order.

18 year old Jamaican based Brit Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake ran a 21.49 PB winning his first round heat at the Jamaican Schools Championship. Delano Williams also cruised to victory in his heat.
Semi-finals Thursday. Interesting to see if both can go under 21 seconds.

Totally agree. Now if someone could actually translate his work correctly other people could actually start applying his methods.

Sem-finals from the Jamaican schools 200m. Delano Williams "jogs" to win his semi in 20.75.
Local press speculating that he may break Usain Bolt's meeting record of 20.25 in Saturday's final. :shock:
I know it's not a done deal that he'll be representing Britain by the summer but this kid could be something very very special. Mitchell-Blake also reaches final.
Williams also won his heat of the 100 on 10.69 with little effort. Semi & final of that comes later tonight.

It could be done but in the end we might as well try and translate Leonardo da Vinci such is his skill and perception.

He must surely want to compete in London and so I expect him to run in the trials. I don't think there will be an issue provided he has his British passport. The men's 200m trials could be really interesting and I wonder if he will run a 400 and be considered for the relay?

By the way I've managed to see live coverage of the Jamaican trials via the Facebook/Sportsmax link and saw his 100m.

According to the articles I've seen he applied for a passport 8 weeks ago. I gather it's much quicker for someone in his position to go through the process than someone like Porter or Aldama but I don't know how long it will take. He also needs IAAF clearance.

The facebook/sportsmax link only gave a "not available in your location" message for me on Wednesday. Good to see it must be working now.

For the record Delano caused a minor upset to win the 100 in 10.37 (wind -0.5) despite a bad start.
200 final tonight will be very interesting.
