    66.30m for Lawrence Okoye ... very pleased for him and who would bet against one big effort to poduim at Tokyo? Naomi Ogbeta's 14.22 PB is chipping away at the OQ, what are the chances she goes if she does not make the mark in time? I have often over looked David King, but a PB tonight is welcome, and one further one in the heats in Tokyo would be a good achievement...

    to forum admin - I made a 'comment', this morning. on the MIA thread that needed 'approval' and it still has not appeared - don't know why it would need, perhaps it was too witty?

    Hmm... Just watching back the women's 100m final at the Parvo Nurmi Games and though the time wasn't pulling up any trees, the way that Imani pulled through from so far back and managed to get the win was pretty impressive. Also, is it just me that thinks that, based on that run, perhaps Imani might be better off looking at the 200m for the future?

    13.37 is under the UK Olympic standard and King is currently ranked 38/40 on the Road to Tokyo list, so this run could see him on the plane.

    David King 13.37 PB in the Hurdles! Good for him, he is one of the guys who is out every week, seems like.
    Ogbeta looking good. Just a little more and she's on the plane to Tokyo. And with junior athlete Temi Ojora doing so well this year, women's triple jumping is looking is better shape than it's done for a number of years.

    And I'm so happy for David King! He's been a grinding on the circuit for years now, always running around the 13.5 range but with thescope for more, and finally he's cracked it! Keep it going Dave!

    Excellent: was nt mentioned on the youtube tonight. Did I miss it or was it not shown.
    Good effort by Webb: the 800m at manchester is going to be scary; Giles, Burgin,Rowden ,Webb and others who could surprise us all.

    Getting closer to the qualifying distance. (Salminen had a great meet btw - very impressive.)

    Lansiquot won, but 11.40 isn't going to set the world alight tbf. Her SB is 11.27.

    Edoburun a couple of years ago was being hyped up here by some posters: he should be better or is he another injured athlete.
    you were right anyway
