  • UK Outdoors Results September 2022

    Seeing as we're now 3 days into the 9th month, I thought it was only right to start a new topic thread.

    Ellie Baker ran 1.59.52 at a BMC yesterday. Marginal PB, only her second ever time under 2, and a SB by some way.

      And a qualifier for Budapest to boot.

      Also this must be among the fastest ever runs at a BMC, no? A very impressive run. Not quite up to Bell's pre-Olympic superhuman exploits, but getting there.

      A record in a women's only BMC race I believe.

    Good run by George Mills in Berlin, the only man at all close to the winner Cheruiyot and a half-second pb of 3.35.30/

      Daryll back after she flounced home from Munich, with 11.00 to win in Berlin.

        Not shure the "flounced" is really the right word. Her ferocious drive is one of the things that is going to get her to where she needs to go. With that ferocity is going to come the odd incongruous moment. Let's just enjoy the ride? :-)

      10.16 for Jeremiah Azu in 3rd behind Lyles and Omanyala.

      Jaz sawyers was also third, jumping 6.69.

        Neita will run in Zurich in 100m so she will have the opportunity to show her class against the stars.

          Good win by Neita against 'B' listers. 11.00 isn't going to trouble the leading lights in Zurich.

        Early on this track year there was a lot of hyping up of DAS and Neita as to how they were going to step up convincingly and consistently to the very top step. Sadly mixed fortunes possibly due to the length and challenges of the 2022.
        Let us hope for more measured expectations next year.
        DAS is clearly an athlete with great physical fragility and Neita must learn not to give a half metre advantage in the first 10 metres against the best.

          DAS performed as well as could be expected in Eugene but possibly should consider whether to focus on one event rather than two next season. And apart from improving her start, DN needs to work out how to perform at her peak in finals rather than in semi-finals.

          Ha, what a brilliant run by Laura at the 5th Avenue Mile !

          I'm off out tonight but, shortly before midnight tonight, I hope to be able to link in the latest Live Streaming Links document to on-demand videos of the races.

            4:14 compares reasonably with the world record. Not like for like with the track record, but still impressive.

                4:14.8 from Muir is the fastest Mile time run anywhere, on the roads or the track, since Hassan beat Masterkova's seemingly "unbeatable" and long standing world record in 2019, and would make her unofficially the 4th fastest woman in history, with the 6th fastest time overall. (Hassan is the only woman in history to have multiple runs under 4:15 for the mile (3 times), with Masterkova and Dibaba doing so once. Muir now joins them in the very exclusive group of women who have gone sub-4:15 over the mile distance. And it must be remembered that she ran this time in teeming rain *and* having come off such a loaded major championship program!)

                  Let's run thinking similar, but consensus seems to be the mile is net downhill, which really helps.

                  Also, 4:14 is roughly 3:55 which is not totally out of her wheelhouse.

                So, in Zagreb today: another consistent 100m from young Mr Azu, 10.14 (0.0) for 2nd behind Bracy 9.97. Charlie Dobson had a decent day too: 5th in the 100 in a 10.28pb, then 3rd in the 200 in 20.21 behind Fahnbulleh 20.07 and Mena 20.17. Joe Ferguson was 5th in 20.49.

                  Dobson's 200m close was good, and a third 20.21 or better of the year is fantastic running. Hopefully he manages a clean and strong winter, and manages a few more open 400m races in 2023.

                  Indeed, Mysterybrick, IanHodge8 asks the key question - 'tough choice on whether to opt for 200m or 400m in 2023' ... I just hope he stays fit and healthy, and is able to run both, with the relay foremost in my thinking.

                  Looks more 400 to me. But that event breaks people.

                And another 70m throw from Charlotte Payne. Much to build on for next year.

                Still encouraging, but overall the wHT never quite took off in the way we all hoped. 5 of the top 6 marks were 13th May or earlier.

                  Indeed. After the exceptional start to the season that so many of our women hammer throwers had, it kinda just petered out by the time the major championships came around.

                  Payne will probably the most disappointed of the lot... Achieved the qualifying distance for the Commonwealth Games, but was done in by the dumb quota system and couldn't represent England at a home event. Then she gets a second bite of the apple with a rankings qualification and selection for the European Championships in August... only to then have probably her worst hammer competition ever with 3 no throws in the morning qualifying, and went out... and considering the pretty mediocre distances that ended up winning the gold, silver and bronze medals in Munich, there was every opportunity for Charlotte to perhaps medal there.

                  May next year, with it's more usual schedule, prove to be a better one overall for all of our female hammer throwers. And Payne will go into next year's Euro U23s in Espoo, Finland, as one of the medal contenders certainly.

                  Fundamentally, I'd rather be disappointed with good athletes/athletes with potential underperforming than have no good athletes (javelin, I'm looking at you...). But with only Worlds next year, the women will need to step up.
