    Realistically I think success for this team is going to look like PBs rather than medals. Any medals would be a nice bonus.

        2021 delayed from 2020 zero, as we didn’t send a team.
        2018 7, of which 3 were gold.
        2016 1 (gold)
        2014 6 (3 were gold)
        2012 5 (2 gold)
        2010 8 (2 gold)

      Good comment on the on the German heavy throwers CAML.

      In the disc the 71m and 69m metre marks were both set in the same comp, so must have been nice conditions. Karges’ 69.49 is 4th all time with Sosna’s 71.37 being a WJR, ahead of Nesterenko at 70.13 and, perhaps more relevantly, Alekna’s 69.81 when he won in Nairobi. FWIW Ceh is only 19th on that list. Udechuku is the top Brit (he threw 43m the other day to match his age) with the list also featuring one of the great might have beens in Curtis Griffith-Parker.

      Back to the Germans. Third on this season’s lists is Steven Richter with 67.27, which also has him 10th all time. He won’t be competing, which does seem nuts as 4th in the rankings is sub 63 and there are 11 who’ve never even exceeded 60m, going all the way down to 52m.

      The one I’m looking forward to seeing is Artur Felfner in the spear. 84m PB (backed up by 83m and 80m efforts) which puts him 4th all time behind Chopra, Sirmais and Walcott - just the couple of Olympic champions there. Decent sized and fast with a sound technique. And being Ukrainian everyone is duty bound to support him.

        Well, Yemi Mary John definitely made the step up I was hoping for, and Ethan Hussey ran exceptionally well too.

        One of our less successful u20 teams in terms of numbers of medals brought home, but really better than I expected.

        And the younger athletes who went will have got invaluable experience know much they need to improve to be competitive at an international age group level.

        Three out of four of our relay teams need to work on their baton changing skills.

          PB over 1500 for middle distance prodigy u17 Phoebe Gill of 4.19.29 in a mixed BMC (she won it by 8s) race yesterday.

            Belated mention that while others were busy in Cali, Emily Newnham went 2nd in the U20 400 rankings with a 53.39. She is the English Schools 400H champ and national U20 indoor champ and is still an U20 next year.

              the vigilant among you might have missed this ... seen as I was logging onto AW

              ICYMI, Corey Campbell broke a 50-year-old British record this week after clocking 8:09.02 in the U17 3000m at a Continental Tour meet in Norway. The previous British U17 record was 8:13.42, set by Barrie Moss all the way back in 1972! History maker.

                The u17 middle distance ranks are bursting with talent. Behind Innes Fitzgerald's obliteration of the British u17 3000m record, Fleur Todd-Warmoth and Jess Bailey have gone 4th & 6th all-time in recent months. Gill is 1.3s off Jo White's ancient ('77!) 800 record, and 5s off Jess Judd's 1500 record, but has often been running unchallenged and will remain an u17 next year.

                On the boys side, aside from the aforementioned Corey Campbell, Henry Dover ran 8.15 at Warford yesterday - He finished a a clear 2nd, a couple of seconds behind the winner and goes 5th in the all time lists. James Dargan also inside the top 10 all time from back in June.

                On the other hand, of the top 10 all-time 1500sc times for the u17 boys, only one came post 1990. Yes, 1990. Zak Seddon in 2010. I know it isnt the most commonly raced event, but what a damning indictment.

                  It would help if you could find a race, and if that race wasn’t a solo effort when you got there! A bit like my point about w3k steeple - there aren’t the races to push the depth to then push on up. What Lizzie and Aimee have done is in spite of the event, not because of it.

                  More good XC boys should be encouraged towards the steeple, where their lack of pace over the flat is offset to some extent by the additional strength the event demands

                    Alice Wright ran 4.18.74 in Watford. Has improved her 1500m PB massively this year, down from 4.44 last year.

                      14yo Nell Desir won the u17 100m in the Welsh junior champs with a wind-legal (+1.5) 11.77. Puts her no. 4 on the all time UK under 15 rankings, and only Renee Regis of our current u17s and less than 10 of our u20s have run faster than that this year.

                        Just a little under 2/10ths of a second off the qualifying time needed to book a flight to the World U20s (11.60)! Very fast kid. Will be interesting to see where she'll be at in 2024 when the next edition of the European U18s rolls along.

                      Yemi Mary John ran a pb over 200 at the weekend: 23.86, first time under 24.

                        Phoebe Gill ran a 4.14 1500m in a mixed race this week! Seems to have gone unnoticed understandably with the Euros. Might not be an official U17 record as it was in a mixed race but what a phenomenal time.

                        Yes yes all the usual caveats with young athletes and outstanding performances at such a young age and what will happen at senior level. But in any case it has been an incredible year for her

                          Almost 5 second Pb over 1500 for Edward Bird (3.54.19), who won bronze in the 3000 at Jerusalem.

                            Fab U17 girls javelin at Bedford - Ayesha Jones won with 50.85m, which would have put her third on the AT lists had she not thrown further a couple of months ago. Dulcie Yelling threw 47.89m (2m PB) to go inside the top 10 AT. Both girls will still be U17s next year. Hannah Lewington threw 46.50m for third, just 5cm off her PB.

                            It's the hope that kills...

                              An incredible distance from Jones... but so, so disappointing that this form wasn't apparent in Jerusalem at the Euro U18s. Going into that championships, she had the 8th or 9th best throw in the U18 age group with the 51.81m PB she threw in June. She would have been in with a realistic chance to at least qualify for the final, but bombed out in qualifying with only a best throw over 6 meters down on that distance.

                              This latest effort, had it been replicated in the actual final, would have bagged Jones the silver medal and would have been quite the feat for someone her age (she was the 2nd youngest entrant in the entire field entered).

                              Hopefully she will continue to develop and get better... and not stall out like so many have done before her have done.
