    Laura Zialor timed out on a High Jump. I've seen it a few times on PV but not HJ.

    Yes it was, although I forgot that she went to the Sydney Olympics in 2000, about 24 years after her British debut!

    That must have been Judy Oakes very near the end of her career.

    While lane 6 on a 6 lane indoor track does tend to be quickest, I have often thought that lane 5 might be preferable in the 400 as from there it tends to be easier to get to the inside in the lead after the break. If your in lane 6 you need to get a bit more of a lead to break cleanly and not have to run further than 400m.

    Also worth mentioning Sophie McKinna smashing the championship best set in 1996 with her opening throw in the shot put final, 18.82m!

    Probably alienated countless thousands of spectators!

    Right decision. But probably bad for "the future of the sport" or something like that.

    Now DQ. I do feel sorry for him, but it was his own fault.

    FWIW I agree.

    Result still not up.

    He went from first to last after that.

    It's a tricky one if he gets DQ'd he loses a qualifier.

    Yeah, I think it's DQ-worthy TBH.

    Good running from AHW, but I'd be grumpy if I was Tom Somers.

    I wouldn't run her on first. As an 800 specialist she should gain more from a flying start than the others.
Working...
