      He'll get off. Just like Claye & Wilson.

    Nice fields at Rovereto tomorrow with athletes from 47 nations competing.

    Sadly, like the Spanish TV meetings, Italian televised meetings are very hard to stream live at the moment (having lost a couple of good services lately). So, unless a paid VPN works with https://www.raiplay.it/dirette/raisportpiuhd we'll have to watch the recording of the broadcast that the Italian Federation have promised will turn up on https://www.youtube.com/user/atleticaitaliana (usually it's about 12 hours afterwards).
    Looking at those Madrid results I see that Polina Miller, European U-20 champion over 400m last month, won the 400m here in a new PB of 51.00! That lowers her own NJR and moves her to 8th on the European U-20 all time list, replacing Great Britain's Marilyn Neufville in that spot (51.02 NJR). It is also the fastest run by a European U-20 over the distance in 13 years!

      I've put 2 + 2 together.

      • SAFP competed recently and Thompson is down to run on Thursday, so I’m guessing it will end up being someone who was expected to make the relay pool, and they want to make it more sensational for a story. Anyone bigger would have been picked up by the likes of TFN and Letsrun already

        • Apparently the person in question declared cold medication at the Jamaican championships, but there was something else found as well.

            I've read that it was a top 3 athlete who was selected to run in am individual event. I have a pretty good idea who it is.

            • Zara H-P the new CEO - is that a good thing? Triahlon has been good because of the Brownlie brothers - and not sure if she had any input for that - Head iof triathlon and distnace running when at UKA - a big change to run four sections with several age divisions plus the coachign adn officials. I would liek to see a big shake up - Boriseque! Put the cat among the pigeons and make the events acountable. WHy not run the throws, jumps spritns adn distnace as sepreate entities with a performnace group running it with a not one size fits all approach or just wait for a good athlete to come along and get 6-10 good years from them. I would think creating teams who devise their own plan that has be approved by the overall ceo and keep figures on injury trates and improvemnt over time. I still think the amount of athletes injured is relevent indication of their lack of fitness for purpose. Athletics relies on on or two athlete to catch the eye but the sprot is falling on is backside as the trials showed in standards of performance and the attendance again. Let's hope for the best but plan for success. I listen to the physio guy speak and he does not fill me with any sense that he or many of his staff are providing value added

                How would you cater for multi events, especially if someone is likely to switch to one of the constituent events?

                Never a good thing, but something like this in a junior athlete is a shame to see on several levels. Perhaps more worrying is that the meds were on general sale and contained ingredients not listed, which I would have thought the Jamaican government would want to address ASAP.

                In my heart, I'm going to give her the benefit of the doubt in relation to the innocence of the situation, but the rules are there for a reason. It's a shame on two levels - if it is unwitting, then its a massive black mark on her career. If it is deliberate, this is a child doping, which is outrageous.

              interesting to read, especially when you consider that i am pilloried here as a totally negative, miserable old codger etc etc and have been for years by posters here; you are getting the message slowly at the poor state of our sport and i do not see a massive omprovement any time soon. i suppose Fangio or some other**** will try to prove how great things are.

                  Sadly, looks like a recent sample, rather than a retest, so we will have the farce of her keeping her 2014/15 seasons intact

              • The teams have been announced for the Europe vs USA match in a few weeks. Europe will have a very strong team with a much higher calibre of athletes than we saw at the team championships. A lot of Brits involved

                European Team:

                • Good to see Jodie Williams in the 400m. Surprised some Brits got the call up, but I guess higher-ranked athletes have said no (which looks very much the case for the US, too).

                    Her normal season progression, based on where she is now, could conceivably mean 21.6 or 21.7 in the summer.
                    (And I'm afraid I don't trust Jones' or Flo-Jo's times, so DAS, _if_ she stays fit, might possibly have a crack at Schippers' true world record in Doha!)
                    Can I just bump this post from May? I found myself thinking the same ridiculous thoughts yesterday.
                    Who is SMU more afraid of? Nasser or Dasher. (Answer: Dasher.)

                      SMU traditionally doesnt drop much at a Championship, whereas Dina drops a lot and ET drops a tonne, so I am starting to agree - I think the 200 would be far closer in Doha that it was tonight if SMU ran.

                      • After an awful couple of years could Julius Yego be sneaking up on the rails? Last 3 comps have been 81, 84 and on Friday 87.73. Would be great to see him properly back.

                        As further evidence of the damage the spear wreaks, I've just realised that I haven't heard anything about WJR holder Neeraj Chopra for a while. And sure enough he hasn't thrown at all this year - elbow surgery.
