    George Mills wins the 800M "B" race today in Lausanne in 1.46.74, just outside his PB. We now have 64 men under 1.50 matching last year.

      In Watford on the 25th August Niamh Bridson-Hubbard Improved her 1500M PB by nearly 3 seconds clocking 4.12.42. An 8 second improvement in the last 2 years. Might ultimately prosper in the longer distances as her 800M PB is 2.06

        Some interesting results coming through from the BMC races at Loughborough. A new PB for Abigail Ives of 2.01.55 moves her up to 5th best ever in the U20 age group.

            Niamh Emerson had an excellent run-out over 800M today runing close to her PB with a 2.10.19

              I fully believe that Niamh would have scored 6300+ points in her return heptathlon in Arona, before injury cut that comeback short. And would have been closer to 6500 points in either the Commonwealth Games, or European Championships thereafter.

              Fingers crossed that she stays fit and healthy going into next season.

              Damn! Faster than dominant European U18, U20 and U23 champ Isabelle Boffey ever ran in this age group. Heck, until Hodgkinson's emergence, only 2 other British teenagers had run faster over 800m in the last 20 years; Jessica Judd (2014) and Charlotte Penfold (formerly Moore) (2002).

              Ives was unlucky not to medal in the World U20s, but she was certainly good enough to do so. Next year's European U20's is going to be an amazing showdown between her, Audrey Werro and maybe featuring a guest appearance from Phoebe Gill, who would be eligible for that age group by then! (Iris Downes won't be too far away from making the final either)

                Just catching up on PO10 to see if there is anything of interest and spotted Seren Bundy-Davies multiple Gold 4x400M medalist in years gone by is running her fastest times for over 6 years clocking 53.87 in the National Athletics League "A" & "B" final held in Bedford on the 20th August.

                  Can we expect something special from Yasmin Liverpool by the end of the season. She improved again over 400M last week to 52.97 but it's that new shiny 200m PB of 23.10 that's got me thinking. I'm thinking low 51 is not out of the question. Anything in the pipeline Stew or is that it for the season? Also I have been using your multiplier a lot and getting some interesting results. MHS and AHW actually come out pretty close to their actual PB's. Yasmin's new PB predicts 50.26 is not out of the question

                    Do the same calculation for Charlie Dobson 20.19 pb. What do you get?😇

                      If I am doing it correctly, a hefty NR.

                      I think Dobson should be capable of 44.2 or better in a couple of years, fitness-permitting. His 44.3 solo relay split showed his potential.

                    James Whiteaker 79.29 PB in the Javelin just now.

                    A million miles off where we want to be, but nice to see 80m being approached and it comes after a very good U17 girls competition over the weekend - A very small dose of positive javelin news.

                    Question: Is Harry Hughes still training, or did he give up after all the struggles?

                      Really hope Whiteaker can manage his body over the next 2 years. He has the ability to throw a lot further if he can.

                    Good news.

                    If Whiteaker can harness his speed then he could go well over 80m. Almost as encouragingly he’s had a fairly full season for virtually the first time ever suggesting that the enthusiasm is there.

                      Kyle Langford runs a PB 1:44.49, which AW twitter calls 'stunning', and makes him the second fastest Brit this year. It also gains him an early qualification mark for next years WC and takes him from 19th to 16th on the all time list [displacing Gary Cook of the 'golden' generation].

                      It certainly will give UK Athletics something to think about when deciding who to fund.

                      Talking of Gary Cook, I wonder what time a 4x400 of Rowden, Langford, Pattison, Burgin might achieve...

                        If the organisers of the London DL next year have half a brain cell they’ll finish things off with a men’s 4 x 800. The world record is only 7.02 so just over 1.45.5 per leg. With our strength in depth and current tech that feels eminently breakable.

                        Cook of course was part of the 1982 team that set a 7.03 WR that lasted for 24 years along with Coe, Cram & Elliott.

                        Definitive battle of the generations too. Bring it on!

                        On the women’s side the Russians WR of 7.50 is out of reach, but the NR of 8.13 could be smashed to pieces.

                          A superb idea, Ursus ... a quartet of Wightman, Gourley, Stonier, Heyward, to keep the pressure on, with a further team based around Giles, Webb & Miles, plus a youngsters one involving Reardon and Hussey, would be quite the showcase ...

                          I was at the Palace when the 4 x 800m mark was set. Unfortunately, Elliot was called at late notice off some beach somewhere and only ran 1:49. I'd say it's a soft record ;-)

                          Maintaining good form she is, even after such a hectic summer of major championship action.
