  • Did nt realise you were an intimate of his with your knowledge of his earnings et al. Where you related. If Elliot said you were quite right I would likely believe it, other wise your knowledge of how he he would have easily lived off his salary from working etc I take with a large dose of caution.

    • Getting this thread back on track, another what happened to...

      Pippa Earley? She was a great multis and hurdles prospect, went off to a US uni in 2019, but hasn't competed since 2020 indoors.

      Covid? Injury?

        I think sadly she is likely done with the sport - outstanding youth but struggled as she got older with various aspects

        A shame but of course it happens to many.

        I do think if you go to the US on an athletics scholarship and it doesn't work out it can sometimes be very difficult psychologically to continue or start again in the sport. An exception at the moment would appear to be Molly Caudery who has bounced back well from a disappointing spell in the US.

    • I now read that your facts are not correct. The result which Elliot was most proud in his own words was at Seoul OG and his best, when he was still working at British Steel but had gone onto 4 hours a day. That would not have made him well paid, despite your comments.
      Poor Elliot was shabbily treated by the powers that be and the media, I seem to recall.

      • Hello again, Sarah McDonald!

        She's entered in the 800 at the England Athletics Championships this weekend in what will be her first race since that pretty disastrous 1500 heat at the British Championships 13 months ago (which in turn had been her first race in 21 months prior to that.)

          Good to see. She's had a torrid time since narrowly missing qualifying for the final in Doha. And as a Birmingham lass probably a little bittersweet to not be competing at the Commonwealths

      • What's the situation with Dustin at the minute?

            He was doing some LJs earlier this year, but below his best. Not sure what he plans now.

            Thanks! I saw a few ljs but they seemed early

        • anyone have an update on Tom Mortimer - I had been keeping my eye on him since a good performance in the 5000 at the 2021 European Athletics Team Championships - Super League. It seems he hasn't run since the indoor season... injury?

            I would say so. Good news is he posted a video on Instagram of him training in July

            thanks, jjimbojames, I seem to be missing out on much info by not engaging in social media

        • Duckworth what a waste of talent.
