    Mystery
    What significance it is that Gemili ran his best and fastest races years ago is obvious except to you when he is not what he was. You are truly a fool to compare a pole vaulter with Gemili as if you have made some telling and significant point.
    Twerp.

      I don't disagree with you, but if you're saying Gemili last broke 20 8 years ago, that is factually incorrect and I will correct you every time.

    it seems very little attention is being given to the England Athletics Senior Championships ...

    Ian Hodge tweeted yesterday that '16 year old Nia Wedderburn Goodison wins the England senior 100m title in 11.69. PB, great young talent'


    Day 2 started ... first two in w400h both PB'd 1st Hayley Maclean 56.08 2nd nicole Kendall 56.11

      i would need a 'mysterybrick metric' here, but I suspect having 6 women on 56.11 or lower in a season, may be a very rare occurence, if ever. .. next season, a neater benchmark, but what price 6 sub - 56...

      I suspect we may have never had 5th place in a year as fast as that before.

      This is despite Eilidh Child retiring this year, who probably ran under that time the most among Brits of the last decade or so.

      Very much enjoying the eponym there...

      I don't have a top 5 measure, but the best ever 10th place is 57.65 from 2019 when 5 women beat 57.00, and this year there have been 7 women under that mark with 10th at 58.89 (but 9th is 57.17, so with Eilidh Doyle managing one more year that would have been a new British best). The only other close year is 2006, when 4 women were at 55.70 or better.

      They never said, but less than 51.30 because that was what the third finisher/eventual silver medallist ran. Josh got DQ (and then reinstated) in the heat too - he obviously needs to work on his discipline...

      His DQ was under rule 22.6.1 which, thanks to a quick G*****, means that he was trailing his leg around the side of the hurdle.

      Looking at Ed's Power of 10 profile, in 2019 he went to the English Schools in the 400H and was DQ'd and appears to have never hurdled competitively since.

      Looks like Ed did run one more hurdles, in August 2019.

      But obviously less to go wrong on the flat.

    Toby Harries wins the 200 in 20.8something from Andy Robertson and Tom Somers.

      Morgan Lake wins the HJ but fails three times at 1.90. Not the most scintillating form prior to Tokyo, suspect she will go out in qualifying there.

          Great to see her effectively on the comeback and with a PB, she ran the race absolutely tactically correct too

        46.42 for Efe Okoro to win the men's 400 in a close race with James Williams.

          Great that she is coached by her big sister too!

          Apparently Romell Glave has ran a windy 9.97 (+2.4 wind) today:

            Yes but there are all sorts of hoops to jump through in this country, but the lack of citizenship is why he couldn’t go to Tallinn for us.

            I mentioned in another thread a while back that Romell will have leave to remain next Spring, so should be good for everything coming his way in 2022. He is a wonderful prospect and a very humble, grounded young man.

            That was only her second 800 this year. She won the 1500 at the English Schools and was just outside the standard for Tallinn, but maybe 800 is her better distance at the moment?
