    Yeah ... but there's quite a difference between 51.63 and 53 or 54 and an even bigger difference between 51.63 and 54.6 which is what McBride ran the...

    Not to mention that at a world level the 1500 is way, way harder to medal in now that Semenya and co are out of the picture in the 800. Edit -...

    Most of them don't though and the large majority of 1:58-ish women have 400m PBs in the 53-low to 54-low range.

    So, why are they asking for 49.5 when even at their best that would still be silly? 49.5 + 53 or 54 is no way to run your best 800.

    Pacemaking in the 800 is getting ever more ridiculous. Brandon McBride followed the pacer through 400 in about 49.2, with others close behind....

    Watching the close-up replay at the time I wondered if she might be DQ'd. In the home straight (penultimate hurdle?) her trail leg went slightly over...

    IMO, there's no excuse either for getting Lasa wrong. He's been one of the top 8 or so in his event in the last few years. They should know more than...

    What? Do you really think the IAAF only started keeping performance lists in the 1990s? (T&FN started in 1948, right?)

    Eh? Just when exactly do you think the IAAF started keeping performance lists? When they first started their website, LOL?

    I believe these performances did actually happen (and on a 400m track not a 380m-ish track as some people suspect). You only have to watch the 1993...

Biography:
On the Athletics Weekly Forum I maintain a Live Streaming Links thread at https://forum.athleticsweekly.com/forum/current-events/132-live-streaming-links . This lists freely available live athletics streams/broadcasts every week of the year. During the busy summer months I make multiple posts per week. Be aware that it's aimed at the predominantly British users of the AW Forum so you'll need to adjust timings if you're outside Britain. However, the streams should be available wherever you are.
