        That will be Sam’s aim for the year - just needs to sort the PV out

        I would think PV is the best bet for gaining 100+ points in one event in the next year or two. His HJ has always been fairly weak but if he can just try and keep that in the 1.90s it won't be a liability.

        He is now knocking on the door of 14m and 40m in the 'heavy' throws which are the benchmark of respectability for international decathletes.

        Indeed - his HJ was always way down on his others. Getting there with the sprints, hurdles and long jump again - at least he’s fit, healthy and enjoying it all

        Looks like the UK women's 800m is going to be just as mad as it was last year!

          A couple of early results from the Friday morning session at Mt SAC Relays (Mt San Antonio College)....

          Tade Ojora and Joshua Zeller are both comfortably through to the collegiate final of the men's 110m hurdles later today, running 13.76 (+1.2m/s) and 13.70 (+1.7m/s) in winning their respective heats.

          Meanwhile, in qualification for the women's hammer final tomorrow, something that is likely to have not been seen before.

          New 70m athlete and 2nd on the UK all time hammer list, Anna Purchase (California), Amy Phillips (North Dakota State) and Tara Simpson-Sullivan (Rice) all made it through to the final tomorrow, and did so with the 1st (67.40m), 2nd (67.01m) and 4th (66.78m) best throws in qualification!

              If he can stay healthy the British records for 200 and 400 are in imminent danger.

            Another impressive UK leading performance from the Mt SAC Relays was Nicole Yeargin in her first 400m run this season opened up with a 51.63 winning time as the 24 year old embarks on her professional career post college.

              The video of this race can be found via the Live Streaming Links thread - in the document for 15th April streams.

            Jess Judd 4th in the 5000 at Mt Sac, 15.11.72. Karissa Schweizer won in her first race since her Achilles surgery, 15:02.77. Nice run for Emily Infeld in 2nd, 15:05.60. Eilish McColgan was a no show.

              As if Mathew Hudson-Smith had read my post on thread Project Sub-3, he goes and runs a 44.82 [according to Ian Hodge Twitter] - I hope he stays fit, healthy and motivted...

                I think the rise of EF, CD and AHW will help with the motivated part - bit of domestic competition to keep him on his toes!

                  About time too, that’s MHS’s first sub 45 since 2018.

                      We need a couple of reliable reserves as well, we don’t want another Guy Learmonth last resort

                      Indeed. I suspect Guy will feature for Scotland at the CWG and then call time on his relay career!

                    PB for Joseph Brier 45.74 too, and 51.54 for Lina Nielsen over the flat 400.

                    NMB has run a 10.19.
