    I am a fan myself, I love shot putters in general. BTW, his great if not huge improvement it's mainly because of his switch from the glide to the spin. He was a 20.50 shot putters at his best with...

    This competition will be more than amazing, with a lot of big guys over 22m BUT we had better not become too overexcited because two years ago the race was a bit of a letdown with only Walsh over 22m...

    Thank you all guys. I wasn't shocked since I was in the leading positions in the last meetings but I wouldn't have ever expected to win by mid season. Sometimes it was luck, sometimes I chose...

    There a couple of races left, the first one should ISTAF if he competes, then the russian cup or something like that. Still hoping, but not too likely.

    From the official entry lists for Rovereto, Morgunov won't be there. BTW, from what I found on the web ho broke a thumb or something like that in a foot and had to sit down the summer. Before that,...

    With my 185 points I should take the lead. The (previous) leader struggled this time and didn't choose Klosterhalfen. My team did quite well, apart from Degrasse but I was difficult to pick four men....

    I don't know if others have the same feeling but I from the (mediocre) results of some events I can say there is a bit of a crysis in german's track and field. For example, the TJ was ridicoulous...

    Exactly. Bunch and Ramsey are obviously capable of going a bit further than Carter's mark (even if 18.60 is no joke for them) but in rainy conditions, and with Carter bringing her A game (of the...

    Switched coach from last year (she was with John Smith, I think, she should now be with Hill's coach). The switch hasn't paid off at all right now, she competed just once and was below 17m then got...

    Muhammad has been injured since winning that meeting in Poland with that huge 400 PR. I don't think she has the 53 low/52 high it will be needed to take down Sydney.

    I was lucky. I wasn't sure to select either Naser or Seyni because Naser's last 200m in Spain was barely under 23 seconds so I thought she was starting to feel tired after thousands of races. Since...

    What a shame he got injured. Let's hope it's minor and can bring his A game in Doha.

    These games, which I didn't get or wanted to watch, are not organized by the IAAF so Russia could send whoever they wanted. BUT, they decided to choose only authorized athletes so that the IAAF...

    Time is not great, but was run into a massive -2.5 headwind so I think this cost her 0.2-0.3... BTW, I think she will do something like 6.50 54-55 2.15 and break 7k points again.

    It was very likely to happen, no reasons for Semenya to face (and lose to) Dibaba or Hassan or Ayana at 3k, way out of her comfort zone. BUT, and there is a but, can she do it? The swiss court...

    No, unfortunately she won't. She has been invited but later declined because of the short time (the meeting is tomorrow) she has to fly from SA to Morocco.

    I have never been a Semenya's fan but this IAAF rule is clearly so unjust. CAS itself told the IAAF not to apply it to 1500m where there weren't clear proofs of Semenya's advantages. They rejected...
