    Now to see if he goes the way of Andrew Pozzi and has a successful transition into the senior ranks of hurdling... or go the way of the other 8 athletes in the UK U17 all time list in the event... Either struggling to make that switch from junior to senior hurdles (Jack Sumner seems to be the most recent addition to a depressingly long list), hampered by injury (Tre Thomas hasn't competed since 2019) or just plain gave up due to a combination of both (Jack Meredith and Jack Kirby the most well known of these).

      I always suspected that Meredith was a little too short to be able to really excel over the senior height hurdles. Having seen the stream of Dean's race I think he is at least better equipped height-wise.

    Further down the field in the Women's 5000 in Boston, I was really pleased to see Jenny Nesbitt run a 15:19 PB and get the Comm Games qualifier she had been chasing for ages.

      No free live streaming for this evening's Meeting de l'Eure in Val-de-Reuil, an Indoor Tour Silver meeting.

      Some good fields though, especially in the mid-distances and particularly the Men's 1500 & Women's 3000. Entry Lists at https://www.meeting-eure.fr/wp-conte...ure-2022-3.pdf

      That'll be a big test for Elliot Giles and Revee Walcott-Nolan will find it even tougher in the 3000. Adelle Tracey also goes in the 800.

        Dean Patterson ran 21.40 in the u/17's faster than the juniors. Mia Mcintosh, a junior, is yet to run a 100 m hurdles race.

          Dean Patterson looked very good in his races.

        Interesting to see James Ellington clock 6.79 over 60m yesterday. With his best being 6.67 from 2014. Not exactly getting you off your feet but enough to think there's more to come and an actual chance of competing for GB or England again this year.. unlikely, yes - but what a story that keeps unfolding. No more indoor races planned for him.

          Has this slipped our collective attention .... Lina Nielsen ran an indoor 300 in 37.35, on 12/Feb at Louisville, KY. I'm not to up on 300m times so did a search and one wiki source suggests that is a British indoor record but GBRathletics.com has a Melanie Purkiss time as quicker... nevertheless a very commendable time ...

          Also Naomi [now] Metzger jumped TJ 13.83 indoors - a solid start, looking to compete at the World Indoors perhaps?

            Officially, she’s 2nd behind Purkiss, but with a number of women running faster as part of 400s, topped by Sanders’ insane 2007 run.

          [Edit] I had the wrong Nielsen sister, so I've deleted the comment that was here.

          As for Naomi Metzger (formerly Ogbeta), that equals her 2nd best distance indoors (indoor PB 14.05, 2019) and represents a further progression of her abilities, as shown by her performances last year, where the majority of her outings saw her jump over 14 meters multiple times. She was super unlucky not to make the Olympic team, missing out on it by just 8cm and also having an actual qualifying distance chalked off due to the wind.

              At the Silver meeting in Val-de-Reuil, it wasn't quite the anticipated test for Elliot Giles with Samuel Tefera a DNS (concentrating on Lievin instead?) but Giles still did well to win and beat a couple of other good Ethiopians. The time was relatively slow, 3:40.24.

              Tracey & Walcott-Nolan were way off the pace in the 800 & 3000 respectively.

              With his "Nadia Battochelli" the French commentator has obviously been swapping notes with Jenny Meadows.

                Does anyone have any idea whether Giles is moving up to 1500 as his main event or maybe aiming to 'mix and match' which far fewer people seem to do at Champs level these days than in the days of Coe, Ovett, Cram, Elliott, Snell etc? I wonder if he might want to do the 800 at one or two champs this summer and a 1500 at the other or others?

            • All change in the UK women's hurdles rankings. Cindy Sember's regained her place at the top with 8.14 and u-23 multi-eventer Isabel Wakefield set a pb of 8.15, both in the US last weekend.

                  To be fair, Lina would likely say her campaign didn’t go to plan, given she missed out due to a bad race at the Trials! Both sisters have new coaches, so interesting to see how it plays out…

                You beat me to announcing the Wakefield result.... She's a new name to me, though that's not surprising as the bulk of her recent athletics life has been spent in America on the collegiate circuit. She's been studying at famous North Carolina sporting college Duke (most well known for it's NCAA Div 1 basketball teams) since 2019. Wakefield came 2nd in the senior girls English Schools 100m hurdles as an 18 year old, while a month earlier she'd come 4th at the English Athletics U23/U20 championships in the same event, not qualifying for a trip to the World Juniors that year in Tampere.

                Further examination of her Po10 page shows that she has been gradually improving as a multi-eventer, with her setting PB's in nearly every 60m hurdles race so far this indoor season. She's also broken 6 metres for the first time in LJ, 1.60m+ in the HJ, 12 meters for the first time in shot put, and broken the 4000 point barrier for indoor pentathlon this year as well. Last year, she also managed to get a 100m hurdles PB of 13.56.

                  That hurdle PB is very encouraging... anyone remember a very talented athlete who dabbled in multi-events early in her career before making her mark on the world stage at 400m hurdles? Just saying... Talking of multi events any update on Niamh Emerson?

                  @Caterhatch I believe you're referencing a certain Sally Gunnell with regards to that former multi-eventer turned Olympic and World champion and former world record holding 400m hurdler extraordinaire.

                  As for Niamh Emerson, unfortunately there has been no news about her at all.

                  emerson looks to have been fit for months and months now, i suspect she will be waiting until the outdoors season

              • Ian Hodge tweeted last night that a certain @shae100m had posted a very good 60m PB of 7.22 - I wasn't familair with this 'moniker' so went to the athlete's twitter page but, it was almost inevitable that it would finally happen, I still couldn't identify the athlete's birth name LOL. I had to to do some lateral thinking using her previous PB, noted on the tweet, and though still not completely certain, think the athlete in question is Cheyanne Evans-Gray. Another young sprinter to watch...

                As an aside, how long before parent's actually give their children birth names with '@' already in place for their future social media needs?

                  That improvement from Cheyanne Evans-Gray moves the 23 year old to joint 16th on the UK all time list for 60m, alongside Desiree Henry and the ultra unfortunate Sophie Papps.

                  She is definitely one to watch.

                  That is vastly superior to her 100m PB which currently is 11.64. Even if she is something of a 60m specialist I expect to see her improving that soon.

              • More from Ian Hodge's Twitter updates... Sam Reardon, the 18 year old who ran so well in winning the U20's 400m title at the English Athletics Age Group Indoor Championships last weekend, has jumped up to 5th on the UK U20 all time list for 800m with a 1:48.83 run in Lee Valley last night.

                • Interesting to see that Reece Prescod has entered the 60m at UK trials next weekend. Wonder if he’s targeting the Worlds ? Or just for some race sharpness. Either way, let’s hope he’s got himself back on track and can start to deliver on his talent
