#3 USA performer last year was 5.72. On current progress Mondo would appear to have reasonable prospects on surpassing that mark.
However, as I understand he will represent Sweden and appears to...

Don't count young Jacko Gill our just yet.
Jacko threw a PB today of 20.83m, to beat the 20.79 NZ resident record held by Tom Walsh. Still a way to go to catch up to Tom's NZ record of 21.62. At...

And he looks like he will achieve that status as a sophomore
Watched the whole 53 minutes. An interesting record of the 1969 Hawaii meet where Lindgren reminded Pre that he was still a high schooler
The questions that need to be asked and determined are:
1. Did Wang Junxia sign that document?
2. Who are the other signatories?
3. Are the signatures genuine?
4. Has Wang Junxia admitted it...
Come on booond. That's one step (bed??) too far
I am having the same problem - annoying

Obviously one of the great tennis players of all time; and by the time she retires maybe the greatest. However, having lost the last 2 major finals would surely suggest she is not the world's best...

In respect of your observation about "the other candidates" I do not understand why you consider it relevant, given I believe none of them were tennis players.
While I have concerns about Coe's apparent lack of action over the past few years, because of his claimed failure to recognise the stench coming from Diack, nonetheless I would definitely agree that...

I guess if it is so easy and so appropriate as you say, then we will soon be seeing a flood of law suits being filed against the IAAF and presumably all of the outed drug cheats.

And of course we mustn't forget that the US is the land of law suits for anything and for any purpose.
His coaches may not be (although I would be surprised if that were the case) but I bet my bottom dollar that Brazier is dreaming Rio.
I also think Moses would be the perfect candidate except for the fact that he is American and therefore the shutters would go up for many countries who would oppose Moses just because he is American....

Cycling - weightlifting - football - cricket - track and field.
And now it is the turn of tennis to join the roll of dishonour. And the initial reaction from those running the sport is to do the...
I do not believe you have to have an IAAF President coming from within the current membership. Given that all IAAF council members are stained (rightly or wrongly) by the stench of Diack then a new...
I agree that it is important who would replace Coe. But I do not believe it is Bubka for the same reasons as I believe Coe should go.
From my reading of Articles 5 and 7 of the IAAF constitution...

He should have taken it as a compliment as you were obviously equating him with Peter Snell

aaronk. Happy for the Aussies to claim "ownership" of kiwis such as the decidedly up himself and very unpleasant Russell Crowe. However, it is getting a bit much when Americans last week hand over...
I, for one, am in complete agreement with Michael Gannon. Both at IAAF and FIFA, Coe has demonstrated conclusively that he is either incompetent or tolerant of corruption (as he didn't want to rock...

It may not be the epitome of someone having their head in the sand, but I think most of the great unwashed public who have given this matter a passing glance would hold the opinion that until Dick...

While I am a supporter of the fundamental of our justice system that it is better that 10 guilty go free rather than one innocent be convicted; it is a frustration knowing that so many of those older...

A spot on assessment. This discussion should be in current events.
01-14-2016, 10:11 PM
If the choice is between Coe and Bubka I agree with your assessment. The trouble is, it appears so much of the existing IAAF hierarchy is tainted. So what do you do?
If Coe is to be replaced...

It is not a matter of hindsight. I think it is more a matter of confirmation. I think Coe's problem is that he must have suspected something ( I say must have because he is obviously a very...
