    That’s the beauty of having the choices that the women’s relay squad has at the moment though. DAS this season has been nothing short of sensational. She is liable to finish this year with the joint fastest time in the world at 100m and the outright fastest time over 200m. She is adept at being placed on the anchor leg since she has the…[Read more]

    Beth Dobbin continues to impress… A big chunk sliced off her 200m best as she wins convincingly in 23.14secs at the Loughborough International.

    Maya Bruney having probably her worst 200m in a couple of years though, was run out into 4th place. Hopefully just a one off.

    Nah. Just pointing out (as Robo did too) that your attempt to try and claim that the current crop of GB athletes are somehow inferior to past decades of them in the field event disciplines, is rather suspect due to the fact that there wasn’t really much of a pedigree in the field events to begin with.

    I don’t know *why* Great Britain have…[Read more]

    Well this is interesting.

    Anybody remember the very promising young long jumper Abigail Irozuru? Seemed to disappear off the map after 2016? (Her last recorded long jump according to her Power Of Ten profile was in 2016.)

    Well, looks like she is back, because she’ll be competing in the long jump at the Great City Games this weekend, along with…[Read more]

    And yet after I took a cursory look at past European Championships from when they started, it’s very quickly apparent that Great Britain has NEVER had any particular tradition in doing well in the throws and some of the field events. Notably the shot putt, javelin, discus, high jump, it was evident that more often than not, we either didn’t…[Read more]

    Just saw the McLaughlin run.

    She is scary good. Shame that there is no Olympics or World Champs this year.

    I guess her main aim will be the World Under 20’s this year? If so, she should walk it. I mean, 52.75? At the age of what, 18-19? Crazy!

  • Totally agree with that last point. For me, a heck of a lot more long jumpers (plus other sprinting/jumping types) should at least try triple jump. Since the women’s event has become established, I have noticed that the UK hardly ever has a representative at age-group champs, and I think that is largely because a lot of athletes who may have the p…[Read more]

  • Lack of height should have nothing to do with it.

    Sure, Jazmin doesn’t have them telescopic legs and long levers that Iburguen, Rojas, or heck, even our own Ashia Hansen, possessed. But that doesn’t mean she couldn’t convert her impressive (diminutive) size to jumping distance ratio into being a competitive performer in the triple jump…[Read more]

  • FINALLY, somebody else who thinks that this would be a good idea for Sawyers to try out the TJ. She has been an impressive performer in the LJ, often performing her season’s or even personal bests in pressure situations in major championships and other important situations.
    However I’m not sure she’ll ever be able to get into the 6.90 – 7m…[Read more]

  • Outrageous optimistic prediction part deux, this time for Reece Prescod…

    He’ll run sub 10 seconds in the 100m and very close to sub 20 seconds in the 200m this season.

  • replied to the topic 2018 Outdoors in the forum Current events 4 months, 2 weeks ago

    Dude….. Just watched the 100m race now. If Prescod gets the opening 30 – 40 meters of his 100m sorted, he’s going to do some *real* damage in the next few years. And to be honest, his start wasn’t actually that bad in the grand scheme of things….

  • replied to the topic 2018 Outdoors in the forum Current events 4 months, 2 weeks ago

    When Reece Prescod starts running sub 10 seconds or sub 20 seconds at the 100 and 200m respectively, on a regular basis, then we can talk about him in relation to Coleman and some of the other top sprinters. Lets not get ahead of ourselves shall we eh, Tread? 🙂

    It was certainly an impressive way to start his season. Long may it continue and for…[Read more]

    A pretty good start to the 2018 season for Reece Prescod, who achieves a very notable first ever win in a Diamond League meet by heading the 100m field in Shanghai, just missing his personal best by 0.01 seconds when clocking 10.04.

    Great Britain teammate Chijindu Ujah came in 4th, clocking 10.18

  • Outrageously optimistic prediction for Dina Asher Smith….

    She’ll run 21.8 something this season, either at the European Championships, or during one of the “mid season” Diamond League events.

    (*PS* Not actually that outrageous a prediction to make. 😉 )
