      McLaughlin 51.68. I think I saw a sort of smile for 1 second. Miserable c..

      Not sure this was your most edifying comment to be fair, Marilyn.

  • Just finished catching up with yesterday's Gold meeting in Szekesfehervar. Some big marks not mentioned by marilyn1 ...

    Camacho-Quinn 12.27
    Joe Kovacs 22.89 (backed up by a 22.87)
    Ceh 71.23

    2017 European U20 champion Milica Gardasevic (SRB) set a PB in winning the LJ. She's improved from 6.64 to 6.83 this year. Good consistency too - 6 of her 7 outdoor competitions this year have been at 6.67 or better. The only one not ... unfortunately the WCh, no marking in qualifying.

      It's easy to overlook just how historically good Kovacs is, dur to him competing against Crouser. Already has one of the best 5 resumes in history, in terms of marks.

    Ceh is entering the discus stratosphere - at 23 that’s already his 3rd 71m+ effort. As far as I can see Stahl has managed 5, the same number that both Kanter and V Alekna achieved in their entire careers. WR holder Schult only had one. 72m has only been exceeded 4 times - Schult, Alekna and Kanter twice.

    Mystery is right about Kovacs. Superb thrower with the misfortune to be up against Crouser who has redefined the event. One of his warm up putts a few years ago was believed to be around the 24m mark. Maybe a bit fanciful but I hope he joins the 23m club one day.

    • Hellen Obiri is making her marathon debut in New York, up against Peres Jepchirchir and world champ Gotytom Gebreslase - https://www.worldathletics.org/compe...22-elite-field

      Jess Piasecki is also entered.

      Remember, there's another high-profile marathon debut to come by Gidey in Valencia in December.

        On the subject of Kovacs I’ll bet there aren’t many elite male throwers that are coached by their wives. Ashley Kovacs nee Muffet also coaches Divine Oladipo.

        • The Memoriał Wiesława Maniaka in Szczecin is always a good little meeting. I'm amazed it's not a Conti Tour Bronze meeting but maybe the organisers don't want the responsibilities that come with that. Selected results (there were no events above 800 nor any field events for women) ...

            Excellent win for Snowden, and very solid runs from Joe Ferguson. Kristal Awuah has completely lost her way and needs to change her coaching setup.

            One other point on Ferguson - 20.38 would have been a UK lead in 2012, 10 years later it barely even registers, such has been the improvement in British sprinting.

          What happened to Mena in Eugene
          ?

          • Ferguson registers ok. He is number 5 in p of 10 this year ,so far. A Brit who lives in GB, trained by Brits , i think, trains and competes here during the year.
            More than you can say about Hughes, NMB, Gemili, and Dobson who currently trains and competes in the USA.

              NMB is UK-based now, coached by Ryan Freckleton. And Dobson is an undergraduate at Loughborough, and indeed ran in the BUCS 4x400m this year.

              And is Gemili not moving back?

          • Yes. Based on comments in article below after Commonwealths; Gemili is basing himself in UK again going forward

            • So actually, 4 of the top 5 UK Male 200m runners are going to be UK-based from next year.

                    • Indoor news not Outdoors ...

                      This year there were 5 meetings in January. Next year there will be 16 in January!​

                      • An Ethiopian double at the Copenhagen Half Marathon.

                        Milkesa Mengesha won the Men's race in 58:58 PB. Defending champ Amedework Walelegn was 2nd and Dominic Lobalu 5th.

                        In the Women's race Tsigie Gebreselama had a 29s lead over Tadu Teshome at 15km (both 21yo) but faded and was overhauled by Teshome who won in 66:13. Teshome will be familiar as Tade Naru to anyone who watches the Women's Grand Prix Series 10k races in South Africa. She should be in Jo'burg in 2 weeks' time to defend her lead in the overall standings there (worth a good pay day!) Pre-race favourite, Vicoty Chepngeno, was up in the lead three on sub-65 pace for the first 8k or so but faded back to 8th.
                        Calli Thackery ran around 69:00 PB (official results not yet available)

                        At the 10 mile Dam tot Damloop in Netherlands, Margaret Chelimo Kipkemboi won a close race in 50:42. Lonah Salpeter was over a minute behind in 4th. Charles Langat won the Men's race in 45:14.​

                        Last night's Sydney Marathon was won in a thrilling 3-way finish by Moses Kibet, 2:07:02. In the Women's race Tigist Girma pulled away in the last few km to win in 2:25:09. She's a two-time sub-2:20 athlete.
