    THIS NEWS IS TOO BIG AND TOO AMAZING TO LEAVE IT IN THE MANNHEIM THREAD!!!

    I REPEAT.

    17 YEAR OLD AMY HUNT HAS JUST RUN A WIND LEGAL (+1.6 M/S) 22.42 IN HER 200M HEAT!!!!!!!

    THAT IS A NEW BRITISH U-20 RECORD, SMASHING DINA ASHER-SMITH'S RECORD SET AT THE 2014 EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS!

    Remember, she is just SEVENTEEN!

    More results from La Chaux-de-Personal Best.. I mean, de-Fonds....

    Imani Lansiquot, who only started her summer season a couple of weeks ago, ran a 11.14 time in coming 2nd to Yongli Wei of China who clocked 11.11. The time made more impressive by being run into a -1.0 m/s headwind!

    As with all times and results from this venue, just take these results with a healthy dose of skepticism until such time as they can recreate them elsewhere. I can certainly see how perhaps this place gets some of these super fast times by the way... it has literally no stands around the track, so it is pretty open to the elements, compared to some other more sheltered athletics tracks.

    Well, looks like La Chaux-de-Fonds' reputation continued this morning.... Though it was aided by a +3.5 m/s tailwind, HAA who was running in the 2nd heat, ran 10.00(!) Ahead of him, Antigua's Cejhae Green ran 9.94 and Taymar Burnet of the Netherlands clocked 9.98.

    If HAA can run that time again with +1.5 wind, *then* I'll be impressed.

    Meanwhile at the same venue in the men's 110m hurdles, big boy Khai Rile-La Borde ran a season's best of 13.67 (+0.2 m/s) in 2nd place, behind Deuce Carter of Jamaica (13.65). Again, I'll be taking this performance with a large dose of doubting salt until I see it recreated elsewhere.

    U20 athlete Oliver Dustin takes the win in a stacked Men’s 800m B Race with a blistering 1:46.85!

    Well done to that lad... what is happening to under 20 800m this year! That's three (Max Burgin and Ben Pattison the other two) all in the top 10 UK U20 all time

    Exciting
    Dustin, though he was delighted when he crossed the line and saw the time he'd achieved, he must secretly be kicking himself at the way he ran last weekend at Bedford. Before *that* run by Bergin, Dustin had been the second ranked Brit over the U-20 800m behind the precocious Burgin.... However he tried to go with the lad on that 52.02 opening lap and paid for it hugely by the back straight, and eventually tailed in last, way down on the 1:48.01 PB he'd set in a BMC race in May, and with no chance of getting a berth on the U-20 team for Boras. Oh to have had *this* run in him a week earlier!

    In the last 2 or 3 years you've needed to be a 4:02 or better athlete to reach a global final. Hannah Klein was an exception in 2017 (4:04 PB) but Sarah is right there on the same level with others who've made finals recently (e.g., Chichocka 4:01, Ennaoui 4:01, Bahta 4:02 PB at the time).

    Max Burgin stays atop the 2019 UK rankings!! Jake Wightman won the loaded 'A' race at Watford in 1:45.56 - a Doha qualifier (1:45.80) also achieved by Grice, 1:45.72, & Giles, 1:45.80, in 2nd & 3rd respectively.

    Sarah McDonald continues her excellent form in winning the 800 A race at Watford in 2:00.14 (so close to that barrier!) A 1.1 second PB if memory serves me correctly. She won by quite a margin from a quality field including SOC, Tracey & Bell. Approx splits for Sarah 59.6/60.5.

    It's also a European Lead supplanting Lyakhova.

    In other news ... Vinco now have their own on-screen clock (linked to the timing system) that replaces their inset shot of the stadium clock that invariably got obscured by an official a couple of times per meeting.

    nice quote from AW on this subject...

    'In the B race there were big breakthroughs for juniors Oliver Dustin and Joshua Lay. Dustin won in a PB 1:46.84 while Lay ran 1:47.93 in what has easily been the greatest year in British junior 800m history.'

    Yesterday at the Goleniow meeting, Poland, Rabah Yusif won the 400m race there in a big season's best of 45.23, a world championship qualifying time. It also is the fastest time he has run over the distance since he broke the 45 second barrier at the 2015 World Champs at Beijing.

    Am I the only person who finds ET really difficult to warm to? She always seems to be scowling, she doesnt really acknowledge the women she races and she has the personality of a 15yo at 7am in every interview I have seen... What's the deal with that?
