  • It will be interesting to see these wonder performances especially Knighton, replicate during the next couple of months.

    Comment


    • Do we have to get the same caveat of ‘will these performances be replicated in a few months time’ after every good performance in April or May??

      Comment


      • It’s certainly true that young athletes can’t always sustain a full season at the same pace, but Knighton was excellent last year. He’s just taken another big step.

        • Also, Erriyon Knighton may never break Usain Bolt’s WR at 200, you never know what might halt someone’s progress, but he’s the first athlete I’ve seen that I thought had the potential to do so.

            Yes you do because every fan with any knowledge both here and particularly in the states is saying the same. Good performance... ? wtf are you talking about
            ?

              Which is why we don't need you to tell us!

              It is a good performance in the sense that it is not a bad performance although "good" is something of an understatement.

                Every fan with knowledge is code for 'philipo and philipo alone, remember.

            • Athing Mu won the 600 at Penn Relays in 1:22.74, the no.4 A-T and 0.97 seconds outside Semenya's WB.

              Ajee Wilson just 6th in 1:25.87, perhaps confirming for some of us that her World Indoors run wasn't a return to her best form.

              In 4th though, with 1:25.22, was Sophia Gorriaran, not 17yo until June! She's surely ready to run sub-2 very soon - her indoor best is 2:00.58.

              • Good racing at the adizero Road to Records races in Germany yesterday. The headline results were Kejelcha winning the 5km in 12:53, no3 A-T, just ahead of Nicholas Kimeli, 12:55, and in the 10km six men ran 27:00 or faster, led by former WR-holder in the Half, Kibiwott Kandie 26:50. In 2nd place Sebastian Sawe (KEN) backed up his recent surprise 58:02 Half with 26:54.

                Two 17yo Ethiopian girls were really impressive. Aynadis Mebrit, 4th in the Half with 67:45 and Medina Eisa, 2nd in the 5km with 14:53. I hope both of them will be at the World U20 champs in Cali (racing Japan's Seira Fuwa hopefully!) and in the U20 race at next year's World XC Championships.

                Speaking of cross country, this event yesterday was a pretty good advert for the World Cross Country Tour. At the biggest races on the XC Tour you do get some of the biggest names (especially in the Spanish races) such as Margaret Kipkemboi, Beatrice Chepkoech and Senbere Teferi, the latter winning the 5km here in 14:39. But, the World XC Tour is also a great proving ground for top youngsters, a few of whom did very well yesterday.
                World XC Tour overall winner Rodrigue Kwizera (BDI) set a 26:56 NR beating Rhonex Kipruto in the 10km and in the 5km, two athletes who finished top 2 in the World Tour XC races in Italy also ran very well - 18yo Levy Kibet running 13:02 and 19yo Addisu Yihune (ETH), the Campaccio XC winner, was 6th in 13:12. The winner of the Women's 10km here in 30:24, 21yo Fentaye Belayneh, placed 4th and 5th at the Campaccio & Elgoibar XC races earlier this year and the aforementioned 17yo Medina Eisa was 5th at Campaccio. If you want to watch top talent on their way up, then watch the World Cross Country Tour races!

                  Just further confirmation (in my eyes at least) that had Keely Hodgkinson been able to come to the start line in Belgrade, she would have won the WI gold

                  • 4th all time in wHT for Brooke Andersen with 79.02.

                    WL for Kovacs with 22.46.

                    And Alekna Jnr goes to 2nd on the season’s list behind Stahl with a new PB of 67.68.

                    • At tonight's Meeting Desafio Nerja (ESP) ...

                      Let's start with the brilliant 18yo Carla Dominguez. I've been posting about her on this forum for about 15 months. You may remember that she's the European U20 5000m champion from Tallinn 2021. But, she had a stinker at the European XC Championships in Dublin - when she should have demolished the field she finished down in the 50s instead.

                      Anyway, tonight she took 27s off her 5000m PB to run 15:38.61 in third place (last lap around 68s), just a step behind Carolina Robles. That puts her no.10 on the European U20 all-time list. It's her second Spanish U23 record in 10 days after running 15:47 on the roads in Malaga.

                      In the Men's 5000 Burundi's Thierry Ndikumenayo ran a 13:06.58 PB, well inside the Eugene standard. Expect his compatriot Rodrigue Kwizera (World XC Tour overall winner) to join him with 5000 & 10,000 standards in the coming weeks. He was the pacemaker tonight. Uruguay's Santiago Catrofe was 2nd in 13:28.41 NR.

                      In the Women's 800 two 20yo Spaniards went sub-2:04 for the first time, Marina Martinez winning in 2:02.85 and Daniela Garcia, 2:03:02.

                      • the fields for the night of the 10,000's are truly exceptional

                        • After @RunUnlimited's British round-up of Track Meet in California, here's some of the international results he didn't mention ...

                          W 1500 B race - Won by Laura Galvan (MEX) 4:07.06 NR - she's the PanAm 5000m champion
                          W 800 A - Behind Allie "don't call me Ajee" Wilson was Nia Akins (USA) 1:58:82 PB and in 5th Maddy Kelly (CAN) dipping under 2:00 for the first time with 1:59.83
                          W 5000 A - Great to see Natosha Rogers winning this in 15:05.22. A very uncharacteristic 63s last lap for her! 8 women went under the 15:10 Eugene standard including Natalie Rule (AUS) PB, Hannah Klein (GER) & Maureen Koster (NED) PB, all 15:06.xx
                          M 5000 A - Also 8 men under the 13:13.50 Eugene standard, including Canada's Charles Philibert-Thiboutot (CPT to his mates!), 13:12.76 PB and a Collegiate Record for Abdihamid Nur (USA) taking down Henry Rono's 13:08.4 with 13:06.32
                          W 10,000 - Won by Weini Kelati (now USA) in 31:11.11. In 3rd a battling 31:18.54 for Rose Davies (AUS), securing a 21s PB and the Eugene standard

                              Seeing the race now for myself, that looked like a nasty pull/tear for Mboma in her right thigh or calf... Could be a season-ender that one.

                              Looked very nasty.

                          • South Africa has a big talent in the Women's 800 it seems - 20yo Prudence Sekgodiso just ran a 3s PB in Nairobi for 1:58.42. She looked almost Athing Mu-esque striding down the home straight.
