    8.43 and bits for Courtney, beating a good field for the win. 3000m seems a good distance for her

      Yes, nicely done by Courtney. Sub-30 for the last lap.

          I'd like to see Laura Muir running the 800 in Glasgow, after that 1.59 showing.

            Our Laura just announced in her BBC British Champs interview that she is looking to race the 1500/3000 double in Glasgow.

                  I'm not sure I've ever seen so much talent squandered.

                    Rare I find myself agreeing almost word for word for philipo, but Okoye one of those rare instances where spiteful annoyance is justified - remember, the man's married (or was), and not only threw away a possibly world class discus career, but an Oxford pace in Law, which is a licence to print money. And to do this on the eve of his debut in AAF, his last chance saloon, defies belief - that AAF had a rather successful launch only rubs salt in the wounds.

                    Question arises, would a conviction for this interfere with his ability to remain in the states?

                  I'd like to say it was admirable (barely) that Okoye wanted to try something different in his life by trying to go for the American Football gig... But it was an enormous risk which, if he had managed to pull it off, had probably set him up for life financially, something that a career in Discus doesn't nessasarily guaruntee. Even if he only had a five season career as a bench warmer, he'd earn far more than he would have done in a 15 year life in athletics.
                  However, the chances of him succeeding were vanishingly small... The number of British American Football players that actually made it on the field of play in the NFL can be honestly counted on the fingers of *one* hand.
                  Of course hindsight is 20/20 and all that, but looking back, I always thought this was a very bad career choice for Okoye... And now it looks even more foolish with this latest news coming from him.

                  What a waste...

                    did you notice some of the very high quality Millrose games results. Near WR by kejelcha in the Mile, crouser starts with a 22.33 bang; sub 1.44 800m by Saruni; 3.33 and bits by the Ethiopian during the mile; WL in the womens 800m, sub 1.59
                    Not impressed by this weeks Brit Champs but full marks to McKinna in the womens shot.!!!!

                      Quite. I hope he’s happy with what he sees in the mirror, but looking from the outside you’d have to wonder. Still only 27, should he see the light it wouldn’t be too late to come back to the circle.

                      Given up a place at Oxford and the chance to be the very best in the world at something. Most people don’t get anywhere near either of those, let alone both.

                      The American dream, eh?

                        In regards to the men's sprints at the European indoors who's likely to get the nod for the GB team ?
