    Mark Butler timed her last 800m at 1:57.2. I must say I timed her around the 1:57.4 (but I'm not great at estimating these things!) mark but PJ Vazel has timed her at 1:56.9 and Hassan at 1:57.2. As...

    I think Desisa will win a medal. He's one of the best racers out there.

    I'm not hyping up Kimetto here. He's had malaria this summer and I've heard one or two rumours that he isn't in his best...

    I've put a few bets on; Ohuruogu to win the 400 at 18/1 and Kiprotich to win the marathon at 16/1 plus a few multiples.

    Yes, I think you're right although they can take it further and wipe out results over a longer timespan.

    As an aside, Abeylegesse didn't compete at the 2005 WCh so I can't imagine that any of her...

    The Daily Mail is reporting that Elvan Abeylegesse is one of the 28 names. This wouldn't surprise me in the slightest although they were wrong about Tomashova. On the other hand, Abeylegesse hasn't...

    That's how I initially construed it but I think gh is right. A lot of people were convinced Tomashova was one of the names on the list (that Daily Mail exclusive was pretty much centred around her!)...

    I think she's also just finished her first year at university and I guess it takes some athletes longer to adjust to new surroundings and a different set-up. And who knows, maybe she's just been...

    More marathon runners than triple jumpers on the Cuban team! I had high hopes for Alcantara but she was jumping further aged 15/16 than she is now. :(

    And I thought it was surprising that Ryzhova (I presume) was pre-selected seeing as she's been about two seconds down on her best form this year. Having said that, I doubt Aksyonova would have fared...

    Shobukhova's world indoor 3000m record in 2006 but the less said about that one, the better.

    Admittedly the record was rather soft, but did anyone foresee Abeylegesse smashing the world 5000m...

    According to wikipedia, it does have some diuretic properties but this hasn't been made salient in the other articles I've read from more reputed sources. And from what I've been told from people who...

    GB's recent record at the World Juniors:

    2008 - 5th (M); DNF ht (W)
    2010 - DNF (M); DNF ht (W)
    2012 - DQ (M); DNF (W)
    2014 - DNF ht (M); DNF ht (W)

    Appalling.

    She did the 1500m and the 10,000m walk at the World Juniors in 2012. At the European Junior Champs last year, she also won the 10,000m walk and ran in the heats of the 3000m steeplechase on the same...

    Any news about the 800m?

    I'm not a fan by any means but why wouldn't you select Tomashova in the 1500m? Obviously she's nowhere near her best, but she knows how to run in champs.

    Thanks! But it's a bit strange because I read this quote from her a few months ago and she didn't mention anything about being pregnant. Maybe something got lost in translation, or she simply chose...

    Is Krivoshapka pregnant? I read she just wanted to give the 2014 season a miss, and come back strong for 2015.

    And she probably won't be the only top athlete giving the Comms a miss. The UK, Australia and Canada might bring all their best athletes, Kenya, Jamaica et al. probably not so much.[/quote]

    Re: 2014 outdoor results

    18-year-old Sahily Diago powered to a 1:58.14 800m world-lead in Havana. Her splits were 55.8 at 400m, and 1:26.5 at 600m. :shock: Her time improves Ajee Wilson's continental record, and she sneaks...

    In her first track race in 21 months, Jo Pavey won the UK 10,000m title in 32:11.05. Really good time bearing in mind the conditions were very blustery, and she gave birth to her second child about...

    Re: Liliya Shobukhova banned for two years

    She missed the 2013 season because she was pregnant. A two-year ban is a laughable punishment, seeing as she recently said she wasn't planning to return to competition until next year (although she...
