      Part of Dobson's 19.99 on Instagram. In this form I'm struggling to see how he doesn't break the British 400m record when he opens his 400m account.

              Welp, guess I have to edit my comment then.

                I once posted an excited comment about someone equaling their PB, then another athlete. Then I realised I was reading their pbs on the startlist not the finishing times and deleted comment before anyone noticed.

              Looking through the weekend results on Po10 - Alex Haydock Wilson ran an 800 PB [1.59 and bits] as well as windy 100 and 200s at Clermont, Fl [same meet as the Charlie Dobson sub-20, the Imani Lansiquot 11, all windy] ... I have a feeling AH-W is leaving no stone unturned to get a sub 45 this season.

              also of windy note, at that meet, was Jenna Blundell achieving a 13.06 in 100H

                I take all the April great sprints in the USA with a large dose of disbelieve , not just the windy stuff, but the starts and officials leave a lot to be desired. Add to this the super shoes supplied to satisfy the American investors in certain companies, and it leaves a certain indifference!!

                  Let's face it, practically no meets in America use the correct mechanism showing up false starts as for major meetings.

                    I think the same largely applies to most countries but the difference with the US is that you are far more like to get times like sub 10 100s at these meets than at equivalent level meets elsewhere.

                  Inclined to agree with you in some respects, Philipo. The thing I most look out for is comparative performances (i.e. if you beat someone good), which is why Haydock-Wilson's 46.05 in Bermuda, beating Kahmari Montgomery (44.23 PB) and Machel Cedenio (4th in 2016 Olympics, 44.01 PB), and Charlie Dobson's runs dispatching Ronnie Baker, NMB, Kendal Williams and others were particularly notable.

                    Or MHS hanging tough with current training partner Steven Gardiner and recording his 2nd fastest time ever.

                    Or our female hammer throwers winning over in America recently to back up their already good form.

                      That's all fair enough, it's all about indicators of form and so on.

                        Hammer thrower Joe Ellis, who turned 26 last week, recorded a UK-leading throw of 73.50m in Ohio last night, his best in 4 years when he set his 73.80m PB and the first time he's gone beyond 70m since 2019.
                        He's now improved that pb to 74.19, although Po10 appears to have assigned the performance to a different Joe Ellis, but I'm pretty sure it's actually the original one.

                          Ahh, the "Rabah Yousif/Yousif Zatat" conundrum strikes Po10.

                          Considering that "Joe Ellis" only known results on his page are from 2013 as an U13, with 2 100m, a 200m and an 80m hurdles to speak off, then nothing until this sudden explosion in the hammer, I believe your hypothesis is correct.

                          The European Athletics stats zone has the performance accredited to the correct athlete at least, as does the stats zone on World Athletics.

                          Hopefully someone will correct that mistake soon enough... The fact that they still have Lee McConnell as one of the fastest junior 400m runners in UK history, when in reality she was still a high jumper (apparently somebody copypasted her 2001 Summer Universiade results into her 1997 ones), really irks me for some reason.

                          Well, well, well, that *is* an interesting development. I guess we'll see what sort of shape Niamh is in after a near 4 year gap since her last full heptathlon, and nearly 2 years since she was last seen on the track in any capacity.
