    That's only 0.11 off the UK U-20 indoor 400m record she set last year and that's from her first race over the distance this winter.... Girl's got a future methinks.

    But that 800 is crazy! such a shame that she hasn't got the opportunity to push on fro the world indoor title, hopefully though transitions to the outdoor season just as fast and faster!
    the more i think about the more annoyed i get, why cancel an event a month and a half in advance when it could have easily been moved somewhere else? as far as i am aware sporting events are going on as normal barring this

      I mean, I'm sure Glasgow, gearing up for the World Indoor Tour meeting later this month, would be pretty much ready to accept being a World Indoor Champs venue on such short notice, along with a host of other World Indoor Tour venues that could do the same....

        With 6 weeks notice the venue may well not be a problem. The biggest problem is having sufficient accommodation available for teams and media. Given longer notice you can block-book hotels but there probably is not enough rooms left now. It is also during University term time so student accommodation wouldn't be an option.

        You also may have difficulty getting sufficient senior officials at that short notice.

      I can only surmise that this comes down to money....

      And I don't mean the cost of hosting the event at short notice as I believe several cities/countries volunteered, but I suspect the amount paid by China to host the event to WA pays a part in delaying it a year. (Regardless of the Athletes)

        It's going to have a major impact on the European Indoors next year, though they stress the organiser's were consulted. Who is going to want to do the Europeans and then two weeks later do the World's? A real shame it wasn't just moved. Some of the fields for Glasgow were already looking thin. Will be interesting to see how many more who've accepted pull out.

            Still part of Europe just not in the European Union and even if there was an argument, if Australia can compete in the Eurovision Song Contest we would have had a strong case!

              British athletes competed in the European Champs before the country joined the EU/EEC. In fact, the European Champs started before the EEC was formed.

            I read on her twitter that Naomi Ogbeta jumped a season's best, 13.82, while competing in Chemnitz, Ms. Ogbeta is certainly someone you feel is one competition away from a big jump, high 14m, if fit and healthy for Tokyo...

              Kelechi Aguocha and Sam Brereton both jump WJ qualifiers and PBs today, 2.22 and 2.16 respectively, both coached by Fuzz Caan. Big improvement from Aguocha from 2.15 and Brereton only turned 17 in September

                  Another British PB today - Harry Coppell in Rouen cleared 5.74 PB then 5.80 PB ... that comp is still going but I'm tuning out to watch the Millrose Games.

                  Holly Bradshaw won the women's, 4.63 on countback from Robeilys Peinado.

                  Jemma Reekie is up against Koko & GDS in the Mile at the Millrose Games ...

                        Purrier is improving all the time! Left "college" a couple of years ago. Never won an outdoor NCAA title (but did win one indoors in the Mile).

                      4.00.56 1500 en route - NR.

                      Reekie looks every bit the real deal.
