  • Strong run from Ben Pattison to win a 1000m race in Poland, 2.19.27.


    • A couple of good scalps for Ben Pattison winning the 1000 in Poznan, beating Romzys & Tuwei (who did "a Dustin" on the home straight & finished last). Not a fast time though - 2:19.27.

      Ellie Baker is a no-show for the 800.

        Bad luck on Ellie, her flight was overbooked, and she couldn't get another one in time.

    • In different heats at the NCAA East Preliminary, Josh Zeller 13.39(-1.9) and Trey Cunningham 13.07(-1.5) win their respective heats.


      • Will Sam atkin run 5000 for GB at Worlds on today’s form


        • Ben Jefferies, a Bristol lad virtually unknown over here due to having last competed in this country as an U13 back in 2011(!), came close to his recent 46.00 400m PB with a 46.02 run in the USA yesterday, according to Ian Hodge.


          • There will be a British triple jump representative in the NCAA Division I Championships in June, as Daniel Falode, 5th in last year's European U20s, secured the 12th and final qualification spot with a 3rd and final round 15.73m (+0.2m/s) season's best over in the NCCA East Preliminaries. That is the second best ever outdoor distance the 19 year old Harvard University freshman has achieved (his overall PB was an indoor 15.90m in Feb 2020, just before the first Covid lockdown) and it places him 5th this year among European U23s so far.

            Also competing in Bloomington was another 19 year old Brit, this time Bera Ajala, representing Michigan (who like Falode competed in the Euro U20s triple jump in 2021, but went out in the qualification round), who managed a best of 15.32m (+0.3m/s) for 27th place.

            One more British triple jumper competed last night, though this time in the NCAA West Preliminaries, and that was 22 year old Aidan Quinn. The New Mexico University student, who has an outdoor PB of 15.58m set just a couple of weeks ago, managed a best effort of 15.30m (+0.5m/s) for 27th place.


            • Aside from the big events in Eugene, Gotzis, La Coruna, Pacé (European 10,000 Cup) and the events in Britain, there's a load of Brits competing abroad this weekend in live streamed meetings.

              If you haven't the inclination to peruse all the startlists, here's the main ones ...

              M 1500 - A few there incl T Keen (probably won't make the 'A' race if everyone turns up because the entry list has a lot of 3:34 to 3:39 men)

                    If anybody has the Roster app, could they update us with the other results from Bedford? (What a dumb state of affairs btw. Having the live results *only* available on a phone app, rather than also having a web browser version just smacks of lack of forward thinking on behalf of England Athletics)

                • 13.70 for Pawlett.

                    In the U20 competition, Abigail Pawlett wins the hurdles in 13.70. A good start for Pawlett, who is looking to retain her national title and to secure her place to the World U20's in Cali.


                    • And 14.33 PB for Seren Rodgers to take the lead in the u18 comp.

                        She looked good in that race, but Chisom Nwafor was impressive too in how she came back after nearly climbing the first hurdle and clearly showing she has a lot to learn still about the discipline. However, her basic speed and power was very apparent.

                          Yes. she's looking like one to watch out for.

                      • Ian Hodge reports a big pb for u23 Hannah Kelly in the 400 in Belgium: 52.89, down from over 54.


                        • 10.73 pb for Sam Talbot at Bedford - definitely back in the mix after his injuries.
