  • UK Outdoors April 2022

    I hope the forum doesn't mind but I suggest from this month-onwards a monthly topic for UK Outdoors results while the season unfolds...

    To bring a little cheer [at least to my llfe] I was trawling Po10 and noted that Sam Talbot [apparently now coached by John Lane] has PB'd in 110H [14.31] and DT [37.49], while competing in the US at the weekend, as well as a SB in 100.

    Good luck to the lad...

    Sounds like a good plan.

    Tara Simpson-Sullivan's season debut of 66.81 means we have six hammer women over 66m so far this year.

      Nicole Yeargin opened her season proper last weekend (after a leg in a 4x4 at the Texas Relays in March) with a 23.29 200, which is pretty close to her pb for that distance.

        KJT is doing a hep in Miami, or sort of.

        First day results hurdles 13.70 and 24.28 200, but doesn't seem to have done the two events in between, not sure why.

        Edited to add day 2:
        LJ 6.05.

          Some multi-event competitions will allow an athlete to take part in just a few events rather than do the whole hep or dec. I suspect she is using it as a gauge of her fitness. In events like HJ, SP and JT she can probably see where she is in training but an actual comp is more necessary in some other events. I see little point in her doing a hep at this stage as she doesn't need a score for Eugene.

          That would make sense.

          That equals Isabel's recent PB.

          a promising start to the season only 15 cm off her pb , hopefully she can find the extra 30-40 cms she needs to be competitive at the commonwealths and the euros this season

            Tidy double for Makoyawo, wins the 200 in 20.62(+2.2).

              14 meters in April? A very good start for Metzger this outdoor season.

              Onwards and upwards for her.

                BTW, the wind at the USTAF Bermuda Games is pretty brutal for the runners. Consistently strong headwinds with the women's and men's 200m finals being run into -5.0m/s and -4.7m/s gusts respectively.

                Don't expect any quick times for AHW in the men's 400m or Elle Baker in the women's 800m.

                The women's long jump could be interesting though as the long jump pit is going with wind, so let's see how Abigail Irozuru opens her outdoor season.

                  46.05 UK lead and second place to Kirani James is no disgrace for AHW though.

                  Occasional Hope Indeed, that was worth at least a half second or so quicker in more favourable wind conditions, if not even more.

                  Looks like Wilson has carried his good indoor form into the outdoors so far.

                  6.36 for Irozuru and 5th place.

              • #11
                That was a really gutsy run from Alex Haydock-Wilson in the men's 400m as he took on 2012 Olympic champion Kirani James and came 2nd to the one lap great, even in those tough wind conditions on the home straight. James pulled away in the closing 50m to win in a still respectable 45.63, while Wilson clocked 46.05..... That was worth a lot more though from both athletes.

                A bold prediction.... I think AHW might go sub 45 seconds this season.

                Kevin Metzger was back in 8th place in 47.52

                  Not sure it’s that bold a prediction! I think he’d be disappointed not to get there, and by some margin. If (always the issue!) we can get AHW, MHS, Faulds and Dobson fit this summer, I suspect we’ll have depth we haven’t seen since the 90s…

              • #12
                At the same comp KJT was at, MHS ran 20.68 over 200, not far outside his pb at that distance. Encouraging.

                    Apparently the much maligned Ojie Edoburun has run 10.07 into a -2.1 headwind.

                      Well well well, a very interesting early season result for Ojie.

                    Ok, that's one down.... How many more of our female hammer throwers will breach the 70m barrier this year?

                    And following on from Sophie Hitchon's retirement last year, isn't it heartening to see those who had undoubtedly been inspired by her career starting to pick up the mantle so quickly in Sophie's wake.
