  • Two NRs for Switzerland's Alex Wilson - 10.08 and 19.98 beating his own 10.11 and 20.04 NRs (both of those at sea level in Germany).

    • Well here's a result that seems to have passed us athletics nerds by... somehow.

      Will Claye became just the 6th man in history to triple jump beyond 18m yesterday at the Jim Bush T&F meeting hosted in Long Beach, California. His 2nd round effort (his only valid jump in the entire competition btw) was measured at an outstanding 18.14m (waiting for confirmation of the wind reading since it wasn't mentioned in the report on the IAAF website), placing Claye 3rd on the world all time list, behind only WR holder Jonathan Edwards and Claye's American teammate Christian Taylor!

        Someone on T&FN has posted the wind was just +0.4. There is also a link to a slo-mo film of the jump.

    • And he’d LJ’d a legal 8.21 earlier in the day!

        The British Diamond League meetings should oblige and put it on her bib! At the big Hungarian meeting last year Balasz Baji had Dr Baji on his bib and if we can have Sir Mo on a bib then why not?

        • In Karlstad, Daniel Stahl continues his recent run of dominant performances in the discus, winning comfortably against his rival Dacres. All of his throws were over 67 meters, with his best effort coming in the 5th round, a 68.93 throw which was just short of the stadium record he set a couple of years ago.

          • Swedish U-20 long jumper Tilde Johannson has just set a new national junior record in the long jump with a 5th round leap of 6.73m and wind legal too... She's solidifying her U-20 #1 ranking, ahead of Fiona May's daughter, Larissa Iapichino and our own Holly Mills. Johannson is also a pretty mean 100m hurdler and is apparently going to be competing in the heptathlon at the European U-20's too. A talented young lady indeed!

            • Gyulai Istvan Memorial (Székesfehérvár, HUN) - EAA Classic meeting

              Some world class performances here... SMU (no, not Southern Methodist University... Shaunae Miller-Uibo!) runs a wind legal 22.19 in the 200m, her first one of the season. She won it easily, pulling away from the rest. It was also a meeting record.

              Another meeting record was set in the men's 200m a few minutes later, with Christian Coleman streaking around the bend and pulling away from a packed field of capable runners, including Guliyev, with a 19.92 clocking.

              In the men's Triple Jump, it was a battle between two of the longest exponents of the discipline in history, Christian Taylor and his American teammate, Will Claye, who last week jumped a wind legal 18.14m and moved up to 3rd on the world all time list. This afternoon, it was Taylor who prevailed though, jumping a windy (+3.4 m/s) 17.93m in the 5th round to grab the initative and despite Claye's best efforts in the final round, that jump from Taylor was enough for victory.

                    So you did. Poor thread discipline from me, but no harm in a little duplication for our generally neglected throwers😀

                    • Performance of the night at the Varberg stop of the Folksam Grand Prix series must surely go to Daniel Stahl, who not only threw over 70 meters before an enraptured home crowd.... but managed the feat FOUR TIMES!

                      In probably the greatest series of discus throwing seen by a single athlete this century, if not ever, Stahl had already thrown the disc 67.99m and 68.89m in the opening two rounds, efforts that would have easily won the competition even though he was going against his Jamaican rival once again, Fredrick Dacres (who would finish in second place with a best throw of 65.92m).

                      But the big Swede was far from finished, and in the next four rounds, he would hurl the discus out beyond the 70m line!

                      70.78m!
                      70.36m!
                      70.89m!

                      and finally 70.37m!

                      An amazing feat of throwing prowess and sheer strength on display this evening!

                        Not even his best series of the season!!

                        419.28 aggregate averaging 69.88. In Doha he “only” had 3 over 70 but his aggregate was 420.04 averaging bang on 70m.

                        Amazing consistency. Can’t help feeling there’s a very big throw just waiting to get out.

                            I figured something was up with her when she hadn't managed an 80 meter throw at some point this season, and also getting beaten at several meetings. Well, good luck on her recovery and hope to see her back again next season.
