      Hi,

      Don't post much but do observe.

      Javelin - Mortimore retired once he finished his time at University as he doesn't have either the time or the facilities at hand to continue to train at the level he wanted to be at.
      Dunderdale has a stress fracture in his elbow and will be out for the foreseeable future.
      Max Law, last years 4th place at the European U18 champs and only just turned 17 years old, is currently the World No1 U18 with the 800g having thrown it 68.57m at the SEAA U20 Champs recently. I understand he has intentions to throw the 700g in some U18 events later this season and will surely end up the World Number 1 with that weight too.
      That will teach me to say that Dunderdale is the exception in generally making it on to the runway. Bonne Buwembo has just returned after a couple of years out which I think was injury related too. Too many injuries to be coincidental.

      Shame about Mortimore, but there’s more to life than unremunerated athletics. An unfulfilled talent.

      Law’s a talent, good luck to him. His coach is shown on Power of 10 as Sam Harrison, who took Bonne so far. Not sure what his elite level credentials are, but I think jimevs who posts here occasionally knows him well.

        Yes Bonne Buwembo is back after a 2 year break, two lots of surgery on his knee and got married to his long term partner in the time away! I believe that he is the only javelin thrower to have been National Champion from almost every age group U15 upwards (he may have just missed out on the U23). Can anyone else show such longevity at that level in the UK? He actually holds a UK Age best from his U15 days when he threw the 800g javelin over 51m. An effort not surpassed by anyone else who has attempted it (throwers such as Daniel Pembroke and Matti Mortimore to name a few)

        Law - currently looks like a super talent. Has broken records at his club, his county, his region and also holds a world age best with the 700g as a 13 year old (over 55m). some of the records he has broken are no mean feats. Last summer he broke the SEAA U17 Championship record held by Gary Jenson since 1983 when he threw over 72m!
        The video of that throw can be found here (4m15secs onwards) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hD3Q3N1vrJY

          A 10 second PB for Amy-Eloise Neale in the 5000 last night in Massachusetts - 15:11.11 for 3rd behind Elinor Purrier's 15:08.

          Charles Maxwell Da'Vall Grice-Cawder won the Mile at the same meeting in 3:54.77.

          Also last night, in Canada, Sarah Inglis took 25s off her 10,000 track PB ahead of her first British vest next month at Highgate - 32:11 for 2nd behind Natasha Wodak 32:09.

          And another PB - Jemma Reekie ran a 1.2s PB in the 800 in Dessau tonight, 2:01.45 in 3rd behind Olga Lyakhova 2:01.20.

            Geez... Max Burgin begins his 2019 like he ended his 2018 campaign, completely dominant! Following the pace maker, Max destroyed the rest of the field at the BMC meeting at Loughbrough, winning in 1:46.78! The dude only turned 17 last month!

            [Edit]: Burgin's time has been revised to 1:46.80... That still makes him the 7th fastest UK U-20 800m of all time.

              Just saw Burgin as well, very impressive. Shame Markim lonsdale has gone backwards after posting a similar time 2 years ago.

                Brilliant news overnight in the US;

                Josh Kerr 3.33.60 1500, winning by 1.5s, and in a manner that suggests he can go quite a bit faster. Three other Brits under 3.37 in the same race - James West & Neil Gourley 3.35, and Will Paulson 3.36.

                  Just to add this, but that performance from Kerr means that he now holds the GB U-23 record over 1500m, taking it from Steve Cram who set that mark 37 years ago in 1982!

                  Forget the U-23s for Josh, he's got his eyes firmly set on Doha. (Also Josh wasn't included in the entries for the U-23 trials taken place on the 22nd - 23rd June anyway) There aren't many 1500m runners aged 22 (who aren't from East Africa at least) who have run such times in the last few years, outside of Jakob Ingerbrigtsen. Kerr is one to watch certainly.

                    Kerr also leapfrogs over Graham Williamson, Jake Wightman and John Robson to go second behind Chris O'Hare on the Scottish all-time list.

                    Good to see West get a PB after his false start DQ in the regional round of the NCAAs.

                  Nick Miller threw 77.88 yesterday for 4th in Poland. 3 of his top 5 performances have come in the last two weeks.

                    He's looking good so far this season is Miller. Hopefully he can keep this going into Doha.

                    From the looks of things come the world champs, it's going to be a straight fight between Fajdek and Nowicki for the gold medal in Doha, while the bronze medal will likely be between Bence Halasz, Nick Miller, Eivind Henriksen and Quentin Bigot, based on current form in the last month or so. All of them have been throwing around the 77m/78m range in that time period have been swapping the 3rd placed position behind the two dueling Poles most of that time.

                    Of course, if Miller could recreate what he did at last year's Commonwealth Games, then he'll be putting himself in that gold/silver medal convo.

                        The two Russians Pronkin and Lukyanov who rarely throw on the circuit will be contention as well and tend to peak when it matters, Pronkin took silver in London. Halasz is easily the youngest of the group (22 this year) and has thrown further than Fajdek did at that age, it’s shaping up to be a competitive event. 77.xx has taken bronze over the last few years, I wouldn’t be surprised if 78.xx was required this time around but Millers definitely capable of those distances

                          Josh Kerr ran a nice pb of 3.33.60 winning yesterday in the States.. Charlie Myers did 5.71 PB over the w/e here.
                          well done to both.

                            At the Copenhagen Athletics Games, triple jumper Naomi Ogbeta comes in 3rd place with a 6th round 13.64m (+0.7 m/s), in a competition that had to deal with shifting winds that went from helpful tailwinds into troublesome headwinds. She has the U-23 standard, but she's still someway short of the 14.20m required for Doha.

                            In the 1st of the men's 100m heats, Kyle De Escofet and Samuel Osewa both qualify for this evenings final with 10.47 and 10.60 clocking respectively, having to contend with a stiff headwind (-1.8 m/s).

                            Earlier in the women's 100m heats, Bianca Williams (Heat 1) qualified for the final with a 11.73 time, again into a headwind (-1.7 m/s), while Ashleigh Nelson in the 2nd heat clocked 11.69 (-1.5 m/s) to win it ahead of Trinidad & Tobago sprinter Semoy Hackett (11.75) and fellow Brit Rachel Miller (11.77).

                            Meanwhile at the Sollentuna Meeting in Sweden, Emily Diamond won the 400m race with an 52.82 time recorded.

                              In the women's 100m final at the Copenhagen Athletics Games, Rachel Miller wins in 11.53 (-0.5 m/s) ahead of Semoy Hackett (11.55) and Bianca Williams (11.59 SB). Ashleigh Nelson came 7th in 11.78.

                              In the men's final, Zambia's Sydney Siame came through with the victory in a tight race, out-dipping the American Cordero Gray 10.33 to 10.34 into a stiff headwind (-1.0 m/s). Kyle de Escofet came through for 3rd place in 10.47, while Samuel Osewa came in 5th, clocking 10.57.

                            At the Jyvaskyla Games in Finland, Nick Miller came 2nd to the up and coming superstar of hammer, Mykhaylo Kokhan, who won his first senior hammer contest with a throw of 75.42m, just nine centimeters beyond Miller's best effort in the final round (75.33m).

                            This is a major scalp for the Ukrainian athlete who only last year with the junior implement set a new world U-18 best of 87.82m at the European U-18 Championships in Gyor on his way to the gold medal. He is just 18 years old, but already has set a PB with the senior hammer over 76 meters and now has won against the reigning Commonwealth and Olympic champions today.
                            Miller, who has recently been on a good run of throwing form and not exactly "old" himself at 26 years of age, will now be very aware of the talent and potential Kokhan possesses after this contest.
