    Another GB athlete competing at the breezy Texas Relays was Tade Ojora and he came 3rd in the 110m hurdles in 13.52 (+2.6m/s)

      12.72 for Cindy Sember in Texas, +3.9 wind. Keni Harrison won the race with 12.32.

        Here's a video of Makoyawo's heavily wind assisted 9.90 (+4.6m/s) run yesterday at the Texas Relays. (Go and watch it as soon as you can because it's been recorded from an ESPN broadcast and I'm not sure how long it will stay up before being copyright striked.)

        Makoyawo definitely is still a pretty raw prospect, judging by the way he popped straight up from the blocks, rather than have a proper drive phase, but most of the rest of his run was super impressive.

          It's always good to see a British sprinter with a strong finish. I'll be surprised if he doesn't legally break 10 this season. He is just what British male sprinting needs, an infusion of serious raw talent. Toby has a manic schedule ahead of him. I'd imagine he'll be doubling up at the NCAA's in early June. He'll need to pick wisely which champs he does after that.

        That start 😳 Certainly looks a good bet to be sub-10 legal this year with that fixed

          Yeah, outrageous top speed once he gets going.

      • #95
        He really needs to work on that start. But massive potential.

          Massive potential... where and when have we heard those words before
          ??

            Would you describe a non-British 19-year-old who has run 10.12 and 9.90 windy and who clearly has starting deficiencies despite having run that fast as having massive potential? If not, when would you ever use that expression?

          Another good British women's hammer result: 68.72 for Amy Phillips, previous best 66.06, taking her to 7th on the UK all time list.

          Five of the top 10 distances have now come this year or last - a real resurgence of the event domestically. Hopefully one or more can progress further to qualify for major championships.

            Amy was Amy Herrington until she got married in December.

          The only thing about this sprinter that seems remotely "massive" is the use of the word itself, but exaggeration from Mystery
          .. so what's new??

            Every statement I have made there is factual, so it cannot be exaggeration. I know you struggle with the English language, but please try to be better.

          All your silly exaggerations are "factual". 🤭🤭🤭

            Is he British? Yes
            Is he 19? Yes
            Did he run 10.12 legally? Yes
            Did he run 9.90 windy? Yes
            Is he bad at starting? This could be discussed, but looking at videos of the race it appears he pops up immediately and doesn't drive well.

            If you actually read, I was never even the person who said he had massive potential, and at no point above have I exaggerated anything. I called you out because I wanted to know what would need to be the case for someone to be viewed as having massive potential by you, which you were incapable of answering.

            The frustrating thing is this is like trying to have a reasoned discussion with a toddler, when you often have very valid and knowledgeable opinions and insights.

          • How many more posts must I suffer, reading Mysterybricks self proclaimed stuff about how reasoned he is. And how expert his opinion is.
            When this young sprinter has achieved something that I value in a competition in the main season outside the Texas relays in March then I will express it how I wish. Why hide about your expertise? perhaps you are a coach or something.

              Did you read my post? I didn't comment on him... I asked your view as to what would constitute massive potential. You still haven't given an answer

          • Or better still, join Letsrun who would appreciate your wise knowall expertise.

            • Err !! we had a euro u 20 and u23 champion and he is not setting the track alight .. a guy called Edoburun. He was hyped up here a few years ago by the "experts" , surely the kiss of death.

              • Come on. We all know potential isn't always realised. That doesn't mean we shouldn't be interested when we detect it, and indeed hope it is some day.

                You don't have to be. It's entirely your prerogative if you're only interested in already elite level medal winning athletes - but no need to bully everyone else.

                • Philipo, we're talking about the first British teenager to run sub-10 seconds regardless of conditions since Mark Lewis Francis' unratified 9.97 he ran in the 2001 World Championships, aged 18 years old. Back then, folks seriously considered him a future medallist at the World or Olympic level, such was his enormous potential.

                  As we all know, MLF, beyond the year 2003, never ran sub 10.1 again in his career, which was a crying shame for all the promise he showed. Even so, he still managed to become an Olympic relay champion.

                  Toby Makoyawo is still very raw, and for all we know, this will be the high point of his athletics career.... But on the other hand, this kid is showing basic, sustained footspeed and power that is reminiscent of Reece Prescod back in 2018 when he broke 10 seconds several times and ran a just over the wind limit 9.88 that season. We could be seeing a really special runner here.

                  The fact that you are all too willing to berate folks for expressing an interest in this guy is just utterly predictable from a sad trollop like yourself though Philipo, so I'm not surprised. Thankfully, I've got you already blocked so I don't have to directly see your usually nonsensical prattle, but I got the gist from Occasional Hope 's comment.

                    RunUnlimited, you've dared to mention Reece Prescod, so that is an immediate set of black marks...
