    At the Josef Odlozil meeting in Prague, Zuzana Hejnova made a successful start to her outdoor season with an impressive 55.02 victory in the 400m hurdles, powering away from the rest of the field on the home straight. 2nd was Canadian Sage Watson in 55.76 and in 3rd was Meghan Beesley with a season's best of 55.89, and she was right up there with Hejnova coming to the last two hurdles but faded a bit at the end. Not sure if that is a World Championship qualifying time for Meghan, but she must be close to it.

    [EDIT] As it turns out, that time from Beesley *was* a world championship qualifying time. Well done to her! And judging by the way she ran in the race, she looks like she can get closer to the 55 second mark in this season.

    I believe it was the Welsh Hannah Williams, not Jodie’s sister

    Very true. And include Hannah Williams, Jodie's younger sister, in that crop of athletes too. She was at the same meet Bakare was at, running in the 100m rather than her more favoured distance the 400m. (BTW, this was Hannah's first officially timed 100m since was 16 years old, back in 2014!)
    Not surprisingly she set a new 100m PB of 11.78 and with this speedwork, I hope it will go some way into getting her 400m PB improved too. It's about time that the 21 year old broke the 52 second barrier, which she's been at the last couple of years.
    Hannah Williams is running the 400 in Riga on Tuesday, up against a decent field including Holub & Artymata.

    [EDIT] Oops!
    Last edited by RunUnlimited; 03-06-19, 18:27. Reason: Turns out that was the 30 year old Welsh Hannah Williams, rather than the 21 year old sister of Jodie Williams, who was in that race over the weekend. Thanks to Paps for pointing out the error

    Could there be some signs of life from Sabrina Bakare here?

    Says in the results that she ran a 53.93 in the 400m "B" race second heat. If that is true (and it looks like the case because this result is now showing on her Power Of 10 profile too), then that's the fastest 400m she's run since she was a teenager! (2014, where she ran 53.44 at 18 years old)
    Ever since winning that World Youth 400m title in 2013 at age 17, Bakare has struggled mightily in the transition from youth prospect into senior age athletics. Since 2015, Bakare hasn't broken 54 seconds in the 400m and it looked like she would fade into obscurity as another one of many junior athletes that can't make it in the elite senior levels of the sport.

    But maybe this run could be showing that Sabrina is beginning to turn it around at the age of 23. I hope so.
