    There's the story that Sid Atkinson originally got lane 1 (the worst lane) for the 1928 hurdles final, but his teammate George Weightman-Smith (who had run the fastest time in both the heats and the...

    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.

    Beyond what AS listed:

    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...

    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....

    Zürich DL: mJT

    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.

    EC formcharts

    I think T&FN usually doesn't have formcharts for the European Championships, so here goes... men/women

    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.
