  • Some terrific walking at the Poděbrady Walking meeting in the Czech Republic, the first Gold meeting of the new World Race Walking Tour.

    There was drama in the Women's 20km as the 2 favourites bombed out ... Around 8km Maria Perez (ESP) was sin-binned for 2 minutes then about 4km later she was DQ'd for a 4th red card. Also, around 11km Alegna Gonzalez (MEX) suffered some sort of injury it seems, suddenly falling off the pace then stopping soon after. She had started the race with kinesio tape on her hammy so maybe it was related to that.

    That left the way for Valeria Ortuno (MEX) to pull clear and take the victory.

    There were some fabulous performances by youngsters finishing in the top 10 with shiny new PBs, highlighted below. A reminder that the auto standard for Eugene is 1:31:00.

    1 Valeria Ortuno (MEX) 1:29:25 (44:23 / 45:02 splits)
    2 Saskia Feige (GER) 1:29:57 PB
    3 Johana Ordonez (ECU) 1:29:58 PB - better known for her 50km/35km exploits (she's the 50km Area Record holder)
    4 Valentina Trapletti (ITA) 1:30:49
    5 Eliska Martinkova (CZE) 1:30:53 PB - she was the 2021 World U20 bronze medalist
    ... ...
    8 Camille Moutard (FRA) 1:31:29 PB - a 4 min PB for the 20yo and suddenly closing in on the French NR of 1:31:15 which has stood for 22 years
    9 Sofia Ramos Rodriguez (MEX) 1:31:41 PB - the 2021 World U20 champion and still 19yo
    11 Clemence Beretta (FRA) 1:32:02 PB - a 1 min 37s PB
    12 Robyn Stevens (USA) 1:32:15 PB - a 1 min 19s PB at the age of 38
    13 Rachelle de Orbeta (PUR) 1:33:06 NR - improved her own mark by 25s
    16 Heather Lewis (GBR) 1:34:02 PB - an 11s PB; She is comfortably in a World Rankings quota position for Eugene at the moment

    The Men's 20km was less eventful but the big surprise package was Ireland's David Kenny. 12 men broke the 1:21:00 Eugene standard.

    1 Caio Bonfim (BRA) 1:18:54 =MR (39:40 / 39:14 splits) - Bonfim is the 2017 World bronze medalist
    2 Perseus Karlstrom (SWE) 1:19:42
    3 David Kenny (IRL) 1:19:44 PB - a 3+ min PB for the 23yo
    4 Brian Pintado (ECU) 1:19:47 PB
    5 Alberto Amezcua (ESP) 1:19:58
    ... ...
    42 Cameron Corbishley (GBR) 1:28:12
    Tom Bosworth DNF??

    • Brilliant run by Jonny Mellor to win the Manchester Marathon with a WC qualifier of 2.10.45, just outside his PB.

      U23 Becky Briggs going really well in the women's race.

      • 2.11.37 for Ross Millington in 2nd, just outside the world qualifier, but within the Euro and Commonwealth times. Not bad for a first attempt at the distance.

        • Really very impressed by Becky Briggs, winning the women's race in a big p of 2.29.06 - and a world qualifier. She's only 22.

          • Naomi Michell just inside 2.31, getting Euro and Commonwealth qualifiers.

            • Anna Purchase improves her hammer pb to 67.77. Nick Miller opens his season with 73.13.

              • Zharnel Hughes ran 10.10 (-0.4m/s) over in Jamaica yesterday.

                Also U23 Adam Clayton, now running for Texas Tech University having transferred from Loyola University Chicago, ran a new 100m PB of 10.30 (+2.0m/s).

                  Yes, she looked really strong. I remember her debut marathon at the Olympic Trials in Kew Gardens. She gave it a real good go but faded a lot in the second half.

                  Great run by Jonny Mellor too and a nice debut marathon for Ross Millington in 2nd.

                  Matching my "68-low" prediction in the LSL thread, GB's Samantha Harrison ran 68:12 for 5th at the Berlin Half Marathon improving her PB by almost 2 minutes. Sheila Chepkirui won in 65:02 and Alex Kibet won the Men's race by almost a minute in 58:55.

                  Margaret Chelimo Kipkemboi won her debut half marathon in Barcelona, 65:26. Haftu Teklu retained his title here in 59:06 outkicking Chala Regasa in the last 300m.

                  Both of today's big European marathons - in Paris & Milan - were won in a touch outside 2:05-flat but 3rd in Paris was Morhad Amdouni breaking the French NR (from 2003) by 1:16 with 2:05:20. Judith Jeptum went sub-2:20 for thr first time, winning in Paris in 2:19:48.

                  • A new Irish NR from Rhasidat Adeleke in the 200 - 22.59. She’s quite a good all rounder with PBs of 11.31 and 52.33

                    • On the women's side, Amber Anning set a new outdoor PB over 200m with a 23.31 (+0.6m/s) at the "Battle Of The Bayou" event in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, yesterday.

                      And over at the Florida Relays, Divine Oladipo set a new outdoor PB for the shot put as she won the event with a throw of 17.43m.

                      • So, not a bad return after 3 years out for Almaz Ayana - 5th in Sunday's Madrid Half in 68:22. Certainly much better than her last race, that 3000 at the Stanford Diamond League.

                        The Continental Tour Gold meetings start this coming Saturday with a new meeting, the Bermuda Games. There's quite a lot of big names competing and a few Brits too. Startlists via https://results.usatf.org/BermudaGames22/

                          Just caught up with the last of the Aussie Champs action. Fabulous run by Calli Thackery, taking 17s off her PB. I'm going to have to start including her in my teaser notes on the LSL thread now!

                          In 4th place Natalie Rule ran a gutsy race. She was chasing in no-woman's land for the 2nd half of the race but closed the last 400 faster than Jess Hull, clocking 15:10.24 - agonisingly just outside the Eugene standard. However, on the bright side, it was a 29s PB for her and, of course, well inside the Comm Games standard.

                            Will be interesting to see how Jodie Williams opens her season with a 200m against a pretty decent field without the absolute superstars being there, which includes the seemingly resurgent Anthonique Strachan and Olympic 100m hurdles gold medallist Jasmine Camacho-Quinn. Two weeks ago, 2012 world U20 100/200m champion Strachan ran a WL 10.99 in Jamaica - the first time she had broken the 11 second barrier - suggesting that perhaps the 28 year old has finally begun to tap into the enormous promise she showed a decade ago as a teenager.

                            AHW is another one to watch in the men's 400m.... he was unfortunate to miss out on the individual berth for the WIC after his DQ at the British Championships, but he ran an excellent leg for the 4x400m team in Belgrade. With a fully fit squad, GB would have definitely won a medal there, if not challenge for the gold medal. So, after last year's "Annus Horribilus" with Great Britain not sending a male individual 400m runner to an Olympic Games for the first time since 1904(!), it will be interesting to see if Haydock-Wilson can build on what has been a promising indoor campaign.

                              I’ve always had a soft spot for strachan

                          • Keep calm everyone, but….

                            ​​​​​​……the lesser spotted Whiteaker has been seen on a javelin runway! In April no less, he normally opens around July.

                            OK, 69.54 is his worst mark in 5 years, but he has competed v sparingly in that time. So good to see him back throwing and hopefully he’ll have a full season and start to fulfill some of that obvious potential.

                            EDIT. I see we now have a separate UK thread but this is earth shattering so it’s staying right here.

                            • Outstanding run from Abby Steiner, 10.92 after a poor start, I didn’t pay much mind to her indoor times but that run has got my attention
