    He sounds like someone who will benefit massively from the structure of a US college programme.

Blessed with a great physique, all the hard work he and his coaches have put in is starting to pay off. He is going to run very fast this year. He's the biggest male sprint talent since Prescod.
    He's gone to a great technical coach at Boston - Gabe Sanders. That's why everything is coming together. It will be exciting to see what Toby does for the rest of the indoor season, then outdoors.

    I (and several others on this site) have been saying much the same about Hunt since her incredible performance in Mannheim in 2019.

    Personally, I see her running faster still in the 60m this winter, definitely into the 7.1s at least, and one of the qualifiers for the World Indoors in March (along with Neita). Hunt is looking a lot more like the relaxed, happy and carefree athlete that she was as a 17 year old, and when she is like that, she can run super fast times

    apparently she had a niggle with her knee which is why she stopped at 1.72 in the high jump

    That run puts her 9th on the UK's all time list for indoor 300m, though the top four times listed were recorded from 400m runs and hand timed (the top time of 36.0 being from Nicola Sanders outstanding 50.02 British record in 2007.) So Hunt's time for an official 300m puts her in 5th place overall.

    Personally I thought was a good run and a good experience for her. Going up against the likes of Gabby Thomas and being not that far away from her at the end would be pretty heartening.

    Testing the waters for her potential at 400 perhaps?

    Amy Hunt Runs 300m Indoors in 37.61. Where does that put her in the UK's all time rankings? Good experience for her or not? I'm on the fence.

    Interesting comment as last year I thought he had the speed but was very straggly. Good news if he’s improved his technique!

    Lorraine Ugen ended up winning the long jump contest, further improving out to another meeting record distance of 6.71m in round 4. Jaz Sawyers best was 6.34m for 5th place, a season's best.

    More PBs in the 3000, this time for the women - Markovc 8:44.15 & Nesbitt 8:48.48 (though Nesbitt has run 8:44.9 in a mixed race indoors). Both well behind Debues-Stafford though - 8:33.92 NR.

    And now Ugen improves to 6.70m in the 3rd round, which is a meeting record apparently.
