    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.

    In my limited time as an amateur junior,...

    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.

    The hard races will certainly have an impact on the...

    I see the GBR team beating that JAM line-up.

    NED line up has been further diminished as Visser will not be running either, to concentrate on the hurdles. They have drafted in 11.37 runner Nargelis...

    watching and listening to Brittany Brown's post race interviews and IAAF press conference, isn't she delightful! I'm obviously familiar with DAS and Kambundji, both lovely women, but had never seen...

    I'll repeat a few things I've said before, only in one post:
    Naser runs as fast as she needs to on the circuit.
    SMU should have run more 400s this year
    SMU should have raced Naser on the circuit...

    So would only lose about 24 pts and would still be 6th all time and GBR record holder.
    Youve a bee in your bonnet about this Powell, and have always been a wee bit negative about KJT's ability....

    Kluft set her PB aged 24, as was Shouaa, Barber was 25. JJK and Ennis were 26, whilst Braun was 27, as was Paetz-John, Anke Behmer...but Dobrynska was 28. Kat can still PB next year for sure

    Whilst her return this year has been impressive in the context of her birth, Felix is not in the same territory as the gold and silver medalists here, not in the individual. They're both a second...

    As far as I am concerned, she threw 13.86, that's what was measured. If anything the minimum it was would have been 13.5 (I thought 12.6) in which case she gained 24 pts on 13.5 to 13.86. No way...

    That's a good point. Someone I know on the circuit has always said Naser does what she has to do to win. If she can win with a 51 then she'll run a 51.
