    If you took the top 10 in the world in the hammer, discus and shot the score would probably be close to 30 to zip in favour of TNF

    I am sure that is doable - and especially if it is done in conjunction with Cooter Brown's ice-capade suggestion. A standing LJ with a piranha light show through an ice prism. Very cool.

    Especially when it comes to certain very pro-Jamaicans and a few very anti-Jamaicans (or should I say pro-US)

    Having been introduced to the weight event (the old farts 20lb version for M60+) over the past few months I am full of admiration for these guys who hurl that bloody weight out to such distances. It...

    A standing log jump across an expandable ditch would be great. With a water pool between the takeoff platform and the landing platform. And for greatest spectator interest the pool would be full of...

    In 1973 in Victoria, BC, Canada at the pre-Pan Pacific meet a number of the jumpers and throwers had a standing long jump competition. About 10 of us in all - perhaps 5 of in each group. I think...

    Went to the track meet at Waitakere Stadium yesterday evening.
    In the shot 21.27 for Whiting (4 throws over 21), Walsh 20.24.
    In the javelin Farquhar was out to 80.11.
    In the 5000 Nick Willis...

    i doubt I would even want to even work in a managerial position. But on the positive side I did read this week that Walmart had given unexpected pay rises (or bonuses to 500,000) staff - so can't be...

    You might have to go a bit deeper in the marathon, given that Kenya and Ethiopia usually have the top 1,250 marathon runners (pre-drug testing of course).

    And by the way, stop picking on Taco Bell...

    You are so correct about the that. US athletes are clearly being made to suffer under the majesterial reign of her royal poohba-ness the Empress Dowager Stephanie Hijinks.

    While these athletes all call themselves professionals the reality is that the great majority struggle to make ends meet and so they pick and choose carefully where and when they compete. Ryan...

    Sounds good Aaronk. So do you volunteer to pay the flights and accommodation etc for an athlete from Hawaii or Alaska (or even the West Coast) to compete in Boston? Not exactly a cheap exercise. If...

    User 4 is so right.
    I remember that when I was 12 years old when I first cleared 4' 11" - cleared relatively easily and did it several times before I cleared 5' 0". However, every time the bar was...

    The issue, for me at least, is that I am not interested in watching high jumpers jumping "over" something that I can't see. While the javelin was changed it was still a javelin that I could watch...

    I find it difficult to believe that NZ Track Champs organizers are paying Powell an appearance fee. Don't want to take the gloss off Powell but the simple fact is that:
    a) 99.999% of the NZ...

    Says he ran 12.8 seconds for the 100m in August and will have no problem going over 23 feet. I think he will need to go faster than that to do his 23 feet.

    Like you, I like it that Bukowiecki fronts up week in and week out.

    However, the fact that Jacko doesn't front up does not IMO mean he is afraid of the competition. When he was a youth and a...

    Matson was 20 years, 2 months and 3 days when he set his first world record on 8 May 1965. He threw history's first 70 footer with 21.52 (70'7") adding a monstrous 84cm (2' 9") to Dallas Long's...

    Guilty as charged. However, I prefer to look at the positive for someone who has just turned 20 and therefore is likely to have his best years ahead of him.


    First, he is still improving;...

    As long as you are not trying to confirm it through USATF - that would be a probable exercise in frustration

    While time may well prove you to be right, I wouldn't be so quick to write Jacko off. He threw 20.70 as a 19 year old. He has just thrown 20.58 at 20 years 2 months. As a matter of interest this is...

    Matson was awesome as a junior but (and with all due respect to my countryman Jacko) I still think the greatest junior of all time was Michael Carter. Football, at NCAA level and the NFL robbed us...
