  • Very good first 60m from Dina but just not quite there at the end if her races atm - Good progress though

    Comment


    • Dina Asher Smith started the best, but was overhauled by Elaine Thompson Herah, Sha'carri Richardson and Shericka Jackson by the line in the Diamond League 100m, though she did run a season's best of 10.98 (+0.8m/s)

      • She's looking better each race, which is encouraging.

        • MHS has done it! The NR is gone! 44.35!

          • Keely Hodgkinson is the real deal. What a win in 1:57.72 WL to hold off Ajee Wilson's late charge.

          • 48.88 for Alastair Chalmers in Belgium! First GB man under 49 since Jack Green in 2017 and a Worlds Qualifier! Big PB for Seamus Derbyshire, 49.44, behind him.

            • Keely’s ability to keep pace is very impressive, she’s almost metronomic. That was another step in the right direction, she’s pencilled in for the Oslo 800, I’d like to see her race a high level 400 before the world champs

              • 32.20.82 pb for Abbie Donnelly in ninth place at the European Cup 10000 last night, just outside the Euro qualifying time of 32.20.00. Steph Twell DNF.

                • 'Twas a pretty great run by Cindy Sember yesterday. Right in the mix in an absolutely top-class field. Very promising indeed for this huge year of champs.

                    She's very consistent with this sort of time atm.

                    Commonwealths (Amusan + whatever Jamaicans come & Charlton) and Europeans (Pia & Visser) will be tough, but she is in the mix for medals this summer.

                • At yesterday's GP Cantones de A Coruña, outside of the global championships the most prestigious of all the Race Walking meetings, Heather Lewis had a very nice race finishing 13th (over 20km) out of 53 starters. However, none of the other 7 Brits competing did much at all (including Bosworth) and, in fact, only 3 of them finished!

                  In very warm conditions many of the women outside the top five were 4, 5 or more minutes outside their PBs and almost 40% of the field DNF'd. So, it's to the great credit of pasty Welsh lass Heather that she was only 2:54 outside her PB set 7 weeks ago in Podebrady. Even though her best is 3:02 outside the WCh standard, she's developed really good consistency meaning that she sits fairly comfortably within the World Rankings quota for Eugene. I think there's only 1 significant competition left (next weekend in Slovakia) before the season shuts down until Eugene and that's highly unlikely to affect the rankings enough that Heather would get shunted out of the quota. So, I hope British Athletics accept her invitation. She'll have deserved it for her efforts.

                  2012 Olympic champion * Shijie Qieyang (CHN) has been the dominant force on the World Race Walking Tour this year, fairly closely followed by Peru's Kimberly Garcia and they went 1-2 in this race with Maria Perez (ESP) completing the podium.

                  * Qieyang was awarded the Olympic title after the recent disqualification of the Russian winner for you-know-what.

                  In the Men's race European Champion Alvaro Martin (ESP) got the better of a close battle with compatriot Diego Garcia who was also 2nd in the Madrid 10km two weeks ago. Brazil's Caio Bonfim, the winner in Podebrady, was 3rd.

                    Just a shame he didn't find another 3/100ths and knock off Schonlebe's European record.

                    • A GB result missed in all the hubbub of the Prefontaine Classic, Gotzis, Bedford and the zillion other athletics meets last weekend was Scott Lincoln continuing his winning streak as he won the shot put event in Thum, Germany. 20.59m was his winning effort, with another two throws over 20m, and all of them would have won this competition. And he took the scalp of twice world and three time European champion David Storl again, like he did in Halle a few days previously.

                          he was lucky enough, lets be honest, in any other place than the country that has ignored the start rules, he would have been in the dressing. On the other hand he does extremely well to conquer the main hardship of being autistic and that is anxiety levels which goes up in the starting blocks
