    Some big names from Britain's top junior talent will be looking to impress over in Germany over this weekend, and with the temperatures in Mannheim expected to exceed 30 Celcius during the Junior Gala (with it topping out at 38C on Sunday!) and the winds calm, there is a possibility for some very quick times for the sprinters to be gained.

    Tobi Ogunkanmi, who only in his 2nd full season as an athlete has made big strides in his development and finished 2nd in the 100m at the U-23/U-20 Championships last weekend, is looking for the qualifying standard of 10.55 that would book his ticket to Boras next month. He set his current PB at 10.56 earlier in June, just 0.01 seconds away from that time, and due to the unhelpfully windy conditions at Bedford couldn't get that standard, will be seeing the weather updates for Mannheim with some hope.

    In the 400m Hurdles, Alastair Chalmers will be looking to not only further lower his national junior record over the distance (50.07), but to become the first British teenager to run sub 50 seconds in the event.

    But the athlete I'm most interested in seeing will be 17 year old Amy Hunt in the 200m. Last week in Bedford all three of her runs in the 100m were into -3.0 m/s headwinds, curtailing any possibility of fast times. With the hot and mostly calm conditions expected in Mannheim this weekend, it will be a chance to see if she can further lower her already impressive 23.17 personal best set in May, though there will be some good competition going up against her. Rhasidat Adeleke, still just 16 years old, is the reigning European U-18 champion over 200m from Gyor last year, running her personal best 23.52 in the process.... as a 15 year old!

    All in all, it's looking like another great couple of days of U-20 age group athletics from Mannheim on the cards and for those who want to the action as it happens, here is the livestreaming link for it https://www.leichtathletik.de/termin...eim-2019-live/ (Link from LuckySpikes' Live Streaming Links topic)

    Well, looks like the prediction I had regarding fast times and the hot weather conditions in Mannheim has already been proven right... Joshua Zeller in the 2nd heat of the U-20's 110m hurdles, who came into the race with a PB of 13.49, set a new lifetime best of 13.30 (+0.4 m/s). He goes to joint 3rd on the UK U-20 all time list with that time! It also sends him top of the 2019 rankings for the U-20 110m hurdles in Europe.

    Impressive stuff!

      Meanwhile in the women's U-20 100m hurdles, 16 year old Lucy-Jane Matthews equals her PB of 13.53 (+1.6 m/s) in the 2nd heat, followed by the multi-eventer Holly Mills, who lowered her PB in the event again this year, to 13.58 (+0.4 m/s) running in the 3rd and final heat... both athletes the with the quickest times heading to the "A" and "B" finals later to day.

    After setting an impressive personal best in the heats, Joshua Zeller then follows that up with an even stronger run in the "A" final for the U-20 110m hurdles, running 13.26 (+1.8 m/s)... With that result, Zeller, 19, leap frogs over Andrew Pozzi into 2nd fastest U-20 all time in the sprint hurdles!

      And in the "A" final for the women's U-20 100m hurdles, Lucy-Jane Matthews wins in a new PB of 13.51 (-0.6 m/s), slicing 0.02 off her previous best, while Holly Mills also takes 0.02 off the PB she set in the heats earlier on, running 13.56.

    Looks like mission accomplished for Tobi in Mannheim! In the 2nd of the 3 men's 100m heats, he comes 2nd to teammate Chad Miller (who ran a big season's best of 10.43 in the process) in a new PB and Euro U-20's qualifier of 10.52 (+0.3 m/s), booking his place on the plane to Boras for certain now! Well done to both of them.

      Another PB for a British junior, this time from the women's U-20 100m heats. Cassie-Ann Pemberton has run a wind legal 11.66 (+1.6 m/s), agonizingly just 0.06 outside the UKA qualifying standard to be considered for the U-20's in Boras.
      Immanuela Aliu, in the same heat, came through in 2nd place with an 11.73 clocking.

      The quickest qualifiers however were two Germans, Talea Prepens and Cheyenne Kuhn, who both won their respective heats in 11.56, which were personal bests for them both.

        In the women's U-20's 400m, Davicia Patterson from Ireland wins in 53.31, another impressive performance from the new national junior record holder over the distance. In 2nd place was Natasha Harrison of Britain, who didn't appear on the original squad for Mannheim. She clocked 54.13, a big season's best by over 0.20 seconds, but not quite fast enough to get under the required U-20 qualifying standard of 53.90.

          Some field event action from the U-20 men's hammer.... Ben Hawkes came 2nd with a best throw of 69.50m in the fifth round, a little bit down on the PB he set at Bedford last week. Winner was German Konstantin Moll, who in the opening round threw a big personal best of 70.02m.

            Day 2 at Mannheim starts off with the men's U-20 400m hurdles, and the opening heat, Great Britain's Joshua Faulds will run in the opening heat of 2. Faulds, 18, finished 3rd at Bedford last weekend so has an opportunity to go to the European U-20's, but will need to lower his PB by 0.66 to get the required qualifying standard (52.00).

            And Faulds wins the heat, but is unable to get the time he wanted, finishing with a 52.96 clocking, looking visibly disappointed when he crossed the line and saw the time.

            In the next heat, UK and European #1 in the U-20 ranks, Alastair Chalmers and UK #2 Seamus Derbyshire, look to post fast times as they sharpen up for the European U-20 Championships next month.
            They will be up against the reigning European U-18 400m hurdles champion, Daniel Huller of Hungary.

            And that goes very much to the form book, Chalmers taking charge of the race early and dominating from the off, pulling away from the rest of field to win, though he was unable to improve upon his NJR of 50.07, clocking 50.60 at the finish (still faster than any European U-20 has managed in 2019). However Derbyshire who came through strongly to finish 2nd, took a big chunk of time out of his personal best, lowering his lifetime best to new figures of 51.24, a near 0.30 improvement!
            That time from Derbyshire moves him up to 15th on the UK U-20 all time list.

              Over in the U-20 long jump, UK #1 Stephen Mackenzie is currently in 2nd place after two rounds, having recorded a 7.49m (+2.1 m/s) opening effort. He currently trails Simon Ehammer, bronze medalist from last years World U-20's decathlon, who opened with a 7.61m (+1.3 m/s) jump.

                Next up on the track is the women's U-20 400m hurdles, with UK #1 Marcey Winter running in the 2nd of the two heats. Winter will be up against Sara Mato of Hungary, who is ranked 3rd in Europe this year with a NJR time of 57.57.

                And the race went as the rankings predicted, with Mato taking the victory convincingly from Winter, while the rest of the field was way behind both of them. Mato narrowly missed out on improving on her own NJR, clocking an impressive 57.64 time, while Marcey Winter 59.12, her 2nd fastest time ever.

                  On the track now is the men's 4 x 100m relay, with Great Britain fielding a team of Fraser Angus, Chad Miller, Joe Ferguson and Praise Olatoke...

                  And they finish in 3rd place behind "Germany Men 1", a senior squad who clocked 39.45, and perhaps more significantly, "Germany Men U20 1" who clocked 39.86. The British squad managed a time of 40.10.

                  We'll see Praise Olatoke, Fraser Angus and Joe Ferguson later on in the individual 200m event.

                    Next on the track is the women's sprint relay, with team Great Britain of Pemberton, Hunt, Kelly and Moss going up against two German U-20 teams and the Swiss U-20 squad..

                    And Team GB win in dominant fashion, with Amy Hunt looking particularly impressive on 2nd leg, accelerating away from her opponent and giving Hannah Kelly a big lead over the rest. They crossed the line in 44.66 and considering that this isn't the "A" team that GB can bring to the Euro U-20's, then it shows what this squad is potentially capable of next month.

                      Holly Mills' great weekend at Mannheim continues. The multi-eventer set two personal bests yesterday in the 100m hurdles and today, competing in the long jump, Mills on her opening jump leaped to a 6.48m (+0.7 m/s) distance to lead the competition after two rounds! That effort moves her to 11th on the UK U-20 all time list.

                      Meanwhile teammate and long jump specialist Josie Olinarnyk has also started impressively, starting out with a just wind legal 6.27m (+2.0 m/s) opening effort, before following that with a 6.34m (1.6 m/s) jump in the 2nd round, the second longest jump so far in the 19 year old's career.

                      [Edit]: And just as I was typing out this, Holly Mills improved again! In round 3, the heptathlete launched into the long jump pit and emerged with another PB, this time measured out to 6.51m (0.6 m/s)! Mills goes to 3rd on the 2019 European long jump rankings, and she now joins a certain KJT at 10th place on the UK U-20 all time list at the long jump.

                            I am not sure I agree about 'Doha' unless it was in her, and her coaches, plans already, I say, let her enjoy the moment, return to study come September (I am assuming a bit here that she is doing A levels), and aim for 2020 ...
