    Well, this is a mess.

    UK Athletics has confirmed coach Toni Minichiello has been suspended pending an investigation into complaints from female athletes.

    Yes, that confused me for a couple of seconds but then I figured because he'd been talking about Miller Uibo ...

    I think he means SMU. She won both at the Bahamian trials and has been named to both 200 and 400, so can decide later on what she wants to do

    MU has gone for the double i read. She had intended originally not to go for the 400m but has changed her mind.Now that Naser and the two namibians have gone , she would have a clean run to the 400m Gold. i think

    Your info is wrong according to both Po10 and Tila.

    Yes, perhaps. But I wrote a post critical of the BLM movement and its influence on athletics (and further politicisation of the sport) a while back and that post was removed pretty quickly. A nearly genocidal hatred of Americans and the United States = OK, "insensitive comments" about a divisive political organization = not OK.

    8 races starting 13th May.
    Savona, Gateshead, Hengelo, Florence, Manchester.

    Seems about right.

    By this time in 2019 she had run four races.
    In 2017 only the trials.

    nobody has forgotten DAS; she as a matter of fact she has hardly stepped on a track this year;She had to run the Trials.
    She has run one 200m and avoided contact with a number of 200m athletes. I do not care one way or the other, but in Olympic year one expects slightly more competitions.Savona and Florence only.
    In the 100m, the Gateshead" winter" meet and not much else.
    Very sparing meets against top non domestic.competition in the last 4 weeks. Part of her coaches plan which may or may not turn out to be the right approach.Time will tell.

    She’s been a wee bit injury prone in the past so maybe that’s why?
Working...
