    A big difference between most German training groups & US groups seems to be their approach to weight training. Training groups are more international now, which is great, but the majority of the...

    A WR in any meet is amazing, the point is that the IAAF is removing events from its flagship DL meetings which are the likeliest to produce WRs going by this season, which is ridiculous. What better...

    You get bums on seats by having the best athletes at your meet. Better still if you can showcase some head-to-heads. A great DL meeting t's not about the number of events, it's about getting the...

    I wonder how much her competition schedule will change, depending on whether she qualifies for the individual in Tokyo or not. She's never competed extensively but her last couple of seasons have...

    Naser's crazy-long season continues, winning the World Military Games in a CR of 50.15. As with some of her DL runs, it did look like she could have gone faster had she wished, (the way she responded...

    I appreciate you caveated it with 'IF' re Felix, but realistically, is she going to pull out a 48.4 relay leg next season at her age?

    In the 8 major championships 4x4's she has run from 2007, she...

    I'd probably go one step further and say she is up there with Irena Szewinska as the greatest female sprinter of all time. No 200m or 400m specialist can match her dominance, times and medals....

    I loved the press conference for the 4x100 where they were asked to describe their team members, it was great!

    Disagree with all the above. Of course the fact that she was 40cm off the board was important, as it meant if she could get her run up right on her next jump she wold jump in excess of 6.9. For those...

    I totes agree, I have always said that. It was what the GDR used to do, the crack FRA teams from the 90's etc, all the best teams used to use the upsweep.

    Yep, she was clearly in 7.4 form, if she could hit the board right.

    Her speed this year has been one of the contributing factors in her improvement. Shes also much stronger. Daryl Neita, the...

    I do struggle with some of the IAAF reports. On the long jump, the IAAF wrote "Mihambo kicked of with a modest - by her standards - leap of 6.52 in round one" no mention of the fact that she was 40cm...

    what about at 34yrs & 9+a half months?

    So much can happen in one year, I'm pretty sure last year no one was thinking Muhammad would be on the 4x4 final team in Doha. Felix ran relatively well here...

    The right team choice. I thought Felix did ok in the x4x400 but nothing amazing that justified her bumping off someone else in the w4x4 final. Also, washer ehat actually 49.8, I've also 50.0? Either...

    Brilliant run from.both, but the way Muhammed snapped her leg down, she was so snappy and had such superior technique, it made all the difference. The run to the line of the tenth was really exciting...

    I kind of like the decision. It doesn't affect any other nation, it's not stopping anyone else who finished the race getting a medal, and it's in good spirit.

    If this were one of your favourite...

    Many women have run super fast 'blind' when in the lead, it just looks like it's not something Baumgart is able to do, she's better at chasing.
