    Fresh update from Ian Hodge..... Josh Kerr has apparently shattered Peter Elliot's indoor mile record of 3:52.02 set in 1990.... 3:48.87! Goes to 3rd on the world all time list!

    Make that a total of 3 new indoor records.... He also destroyed Elliot's indoor 1500m record (3:34.20) as he ran through that distance in 3:32.85 en route to his mile time, and in the process took down one of the oldest European indoor track records on the books too, as it outdid the 3:49.78 ran by Irish distance legend Eamonn Coghlan all the way back in 1983!

    Another good result from yesterday that might have been missed was Josh Zeller lowering his 60m hurdles PB yet again this year, running 7.67 to win the Big Ten Indoor T&F Championship final in Geneva, Ohio. That shaved 1/100th off his previous PB, set last weekend, and moves Zeller to =8th on the UK U23 all time list.

    *Surprised* if she doesn't run 1.54.5?! If she can go 1.54.5, she must be capable of a 50.0 relay leg (at least) too.
    As was pointed out here after he record-breaking run in Birmingham, when Keely was interviewed after the race, she straight up said that Reekie's British indoor record was the target, and said so in a totally matter-of-fact way too. She thoroughly expected to run that fast. If Jenny says she can get into the type of territory last seen in the early 80's outdoors, then I'm inclined to believe her.

    Elliot Giles wins this time 1:45.42.

    Guess he’s going for the free Q spot in Belgrade.

    Daryl Neita 7.20 in her first 60m heat in Toruń - into the final, which will be the meeting closer later.

    Jaz Sawyers continues to rake in the Air Miles & the wee little bottles of hotel room shampoo 6.46SB

    Ama Pipi gets a good 400m in the B race 52.02 PB.

    It was the best performance I’ve seen by a British athlete in the flesh since Cram ran 1:43 on a wet, cold and windy afternoon in Edinburgh in 1986. I truly believe that aside from Daley, she is the greatest talent we’ve had in my lifetime.

    It said a lot for the state of our sport that Sean Ingle, writing in the Observer only gave her a para at the end of half a page on Richard Kitty feeling upset about losing his silver medal. On the one hand, it’s sad that there are so few athletics journos in the national press but when Ingle focuses almost exclusively on drug stories and anything negative, we’re better off without them. The guy in The Times is just as bad.

    LoveSprints1 Damn... Well, while I'm happy that David is managing a life outside of athletics, to go from being one of the most promising sprint hurdlers we've seen from these shores since the days of Jackson and Jarrett, a man who even held a world junior record at one point, to being completely out of the sport altogether is pretty tragic. In 2017, Omeregie ran 13.34 at the European Team Championships, and later ran for Great Britain at the World Championships in London. Yet by 2019, he was completely off funding and was basically out of athletics. That's just sad and a bit of an indictment of how sometimes the sport doesn't provide enough support for its athletes.

    Well, good luck to David for his future ventures.

    David Omeregie is now a full-time Associate at PwG. His Nike funding ended in 2018 and his National Lottery funding in 2019. Looks as if he is a former athlete now. His sister Sarah is studying at Harvard and still putting the shot, with a best of 15.12i so far this season.

    AHW ran 47.96 over 400 a couple of weeks ago, which is currently 9th on the UK list this year.

    I saw a few post race interview clips and she didn’t seem remotely surprised at how well she ran
