    I've noticed in a lot of your posts you're very anti Schippers. No comment on World silver medalist TaLou, who only beat her by 1/100th, or that she beat the Americans?

    Let's see how she does in...

    According to the BBC, that was his original explanation, that he had mistakenly taken it in an energy drink in Italy. But then he admitted to taking it in a supplement. And he was found to have...

    This is significant, as this far Bowie has only run two 100s this season, an 11.3 and an 11.5. This may give us an indication of whether she is fit to defend her world title.

    I tried to remove the weed positives, as well as Inger Miller's caffeine positive.

    Side note, for me, weed is a ?? In that it obvs has no performance benefit, but rules are rules so don't take...

    Yep, I counted Jelks twice, good spot.

    Crawford was for missed tests, and his ban was questionable because of his status. But the main point I was trying to make remains, which was you cant...

    As it stands today (my caveat!) I see ET doing the double. She beat SAFP in their last championship encounter when SAFP wasn't quite at her best, but then has beaten her at the JAM NCs this year when...

    Zagreb: Felix v Naser v Francis

    Felix has been announced for Zagreb, where she will face current world number 2 Naser & reigning World Champion Francis.

    Though I'm sure no one expects her to win, we all hope to see some progress...

    So, she has been initially selected for the 100, 200 and relay, but it remains to be seen whether they allow her to run all 3. Laura Muller, 3rd fastest over 100m on paper this season (11.15) still...

    Aye, I'm not working on PBs though, rather likely results :-) But you are right, Thiam will still probably have a bigger pts over those 4 events, but I see it as way less than 200 because she wont be...

    The Bham stadium is very open and often windy, so I am not surprised the times were down. There was also a chill in the air and intermittent light rain.

    Brilliant Jumping from Thiam though, she...

    Exactly! 3rd and 4th leg runners run into the back of other runners, have to run wide, have to chop stride to avoid other runners etc. etc...I'd say this is pretty much why there is any...

    If memory serves me right, the difference between a 400m flat and 400mh, for a clean, technically competent runner, is 2.5 seconds. For a lot of runners it is more like 3.0-3.5 though.

    I agree with norunner; there are just too many injuries in some of the key events at the moment. If, for example, Germany's top male 400m runners were all injured, we wouldn't notice, but like any...

    Dare I say, I can kind of understand it. Firstly, it's a rankings system, not performance scoring tables, so they have decided certain meetings are more important than times. This gives them some...

    The problem is the scoring tables & scales within the events are outdated. The points are based on event standards from many years ago when doping was more prevalent and the top throwers in the...

    The bottom line is, do not make an assumption based on a woman's appearance or results until you know the facts. I think that is the best approach .

    Hopefully when we get to Doha any other women competing in the 400/800/1500/400mh wont face some of the snide comments we've seen on other topics, as they would be eligible to compete.

    The US obviously have better foot speed with their top 4, but they'll need some clean baton passing if they want to win the 4x100, as they aren't that far ahead of GBR to be able to fumble passes....

    Oh good grief, what are you going to be like next year, or, perish the thought, when she retires? Start preparing yourself now, the event is moving on. 911 at the ready!
