It's a pity one of them has to be #2.
Outdoor season average...
Bondarenko - 237.85 in 13 finals
Barshim - 237.82 in 11 finals
Both higher than Sotomayor's best season average (though...

The leading 2014 woman 3000m runner indoors, Genzebe Dibaba, was 2.16% slower than Wang's 8:06.11.
The leading 2014 woman 3000m runner outdoors, Hellen Obiri,...
Chumba's time is a new third-place best, replacing Tola's 2:04:49 from Dubai '13.
Link on front page. She had improved her PB by 0.34 and SB by 1.83 at the Asian Games.
I know many here don't care much about the walks, but I'd take 3:32:33 over 2:02:57 any day. 2:02:57 was awesome; 3:32:33 was a "did that really just happen?" moment.

That's the same Andreev who was in the PV Oly final in '08, right?

Beyond what AS listed:
2-1 vs Ahouré
2-0 vs Schippers
3-0 vs Stewart
In other words, she didn't race the other main contenders much. Incidentally, both Ahouré and Okagbare beat her clearly in...
Another thread on the same topic, with a heap of statistics by andres9 (who also used IAAF scoring tables):
There's no way a 8:24 3000 runner is going to run 2 miles in 8:58, since 8:24 is 9:00.7 pace and the average speed goes down, not up, as the distances get longer.
Any idea who'll be #1 in the T&FN rankings? Röhler's 12th place at the biggest meet of the year counts against him badly, and he has negative head-to-heads against both Ruuskanen and Pitkämäki....
Their analysis of the men's 800 is a mess. They got the Kszczot/Kiprop thing right when they analysed Rudisha ("2nd and beats Amos, Kiprop & Kszczot") but forgot about it later, and it's not the only...
This is pretty much a winner-takes-all - if any of Abdelrahman, Pitkämäki, Veselý, Röhler or Ruuskanen wins they will also win the Diamond Race. If Yego wins here he takes the Diamond Race if...
I don't have a clue about actor/singers, but the hurdles champions in 1920 were Frank Loomis and Earl Thomson, and I'm not sure how you can add two letters to 'Earl' while keeping it the same name,...

Yes, with one of those dreaded oversized 300m tracks.
Go ahead, but use the updated versions I just posted.
But neither he or Kafétien Gomis (who jumped 819 in the same meet) have come anywhere close to those marks elsewhere; their next-best jumps this year have been 796 and 775 respectively, even though...
Thanks for all the compliments, and to our new posters, welcome aboard! I hope you'll enjoy this forum :)
Pity about Mohr scratching. One of the Brits might sneak on the formchart as #12 now,...
Nana Djimou - you're right, she should have been higher.
As for the Russian walkers, all of them except Yargunkin are coached by Chegin... and Yargunkin is probably the weakest Russian.
I think T&FN usually doesn't have formcharts for the European Championships, so here goes... men/women
As you probably guessed, the main reason I went 12 deep rather than just 10 is that this way...

True, but that was without Eilidh Child; adding her is easily worth 1.5 seconds I think. Their weaker legs will have to deliver if they want to win in Zürich, though.

TBO is not the greatest relay runner of all time, though. I'm picking her to win the individual but I'd be surprised if she has the fastest split in the relay; of course, that's not saying UK...
Thanks for the compliments.
Keskisalo officially announced his retirement after the Olympic final in 2012, a result of injuries and having already achieved plenty. He kept training, but at lower...
Arttu Kangas - 19.74/19.74 - chances: slim
There were some doubts as to whether he'd be selected; although he did have the standard, the meeting where he achieved it wasn't on the national...
