  • Monaco DL

    Deserves its own thread as it is basically the biggest comp this year.

    Great race from Pozzi, very tight at the top of 100mh!

    Brazier looked different gravy in that race. Has to be one of the most relaxed looking 1:43s ever...

    Decent from Langford in the train behind him for a PB but not a UK-lead. What would Burgin have done in that race?

        Really good! Definitely a 5000m runner now.

        Sorry, mate did not spot your thread, would have posted.

        You’ve got an actual effin’ proper WR to discuss though!

          Has been a great night for the Brits but poor stuff from Gemili. Guess it’s harder for sprinters than distance runners.

            Great women’s 1K for the Celtic nations!

              I didn't see this thread either.

              A great evening.

              Obviously some athletes have survived lockdown better than others.

                Great to have athletics back! Thoroughly enjoyed tonights action.

                One question: Do they all wear the new special style of running shoe on the track or is that strictly a road running trainer?

                  Super runs by Weightman & Wightman, and Cheptegei of course!

                  Laura Weightman seems to have been gradually making the move to 5000 over the last 2 years and it's a good move, given how loaded the 1500 is nationally and globally. That's not to say though that the 5000 is going to be much easier - there's lots of fast global competition there too.

                  And bang goes Kenenisa Bekele's chance of being the first man to hold the 5000, 10000 & Marathon WRs simultaneously. He came so close in Berlin last year, missing the WR by 3 seconds.

                  Chuffed for Shannon Rowbury - a nice 14:45 in the 5000. It's taken her a while to get back in good shape after giving birth in 2018.

                  A sneaky good back-to-form run for Sofia Ennaoui in the 1000 with 2:32.30, after an injury-filled 2019. Suggestive that she (and Ciara Mageean) are ready to break 4:00 for the first time when they get the opportunity.

                  Looking forward to more Muir-Reekie battles though, for the time being, my money's on Laura at the 15 whilst Jemma may excel more in the 800.

                    good runs pretty much all round - pozzi equalled his pb, langford broke his, weightman 9 second pb and 2nd on uk all time list, wightman broke his pb by 2 seconds and 2nd on uk all time list, reekie pb and muir pb and british record - mccolgan ran reasonably well too, the sprinters looked miles off their best but at least gemili was competative in the race, not great from kjt or ogbeta

                      Bet DL in years Maybe we need fewer of them to make them more special...

                        Is that "recency bias" though? Yes, it was great but there's been a few crackers in the last 2 or 3 years. Off the top of my head, Paris, Lausanne & Brussels. I don't want to get into a debate about it though, so I won't specify the years.

                          Monaco is always good though. Might just be timing, it’s usually held just before the year’s Major, whereas Zurich & Brussels are always a few weeks after. Maybe it’s the yachts, it inspires people.
