    *groan* In the words of Statler and Waldorf - that wasn't half bad...it was all bad!

    A super-late August result that slipped under the radar here... Alisha Rees, new Scottish record holder over 100m, ran a new 200m PB of 22.98 (-0.2m/s), her first time ever under 23 seconds, over in the Kettering Town Harriers Open meeting on the 20th August. (This was the same meeting where Yasmin Liverpool set a substantial 200m PB of 23.10, and saw the return of Amy Hunt to action after missing most of the outdoor season due to injury, both performances that had been mentioned earlier on in this thread.)

    Rees' time now moves her up to joint 3rd on the Scottish 200m all time list, level with 1984 Olympic 200m quarter finalist and 1986 Commonwealth Games 200m bronze medallist, Sandra Whittaker.

Not bad company to keep, I wonder if he has any more races this year, as I feel a 20.0x is there...
    A 20 .00 to 20.09 is not there or anywhere else as the season draws to a close.In my view , of course. We just have to wait till 2023 and hope that his body behaves.

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

    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 ;-)

    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 ...

    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.
