    In Germany we have departments of the police, customs and military for athletes of an international level. In the military do you have to do the same basic 6 week training as all other recruits, but...

    That doesn't help. Let's say there is a meet in Tallinn next week, how do you know if it is a "traditional international meet", an "international meet", a "national meet", an "area permit meet" a...

    How do you know the event type for every meet on the planet?

    But those that get to compete in the DL are the same athletes that don't need to compete in the DL for qualification purposes because the have the big Q. And those athletes also don't need to be...

    It could get a lot worse. With 1000s of results missing from the IAAF rankings, there could be dozens of athletes missing qualification simply because the IAAF can't keep track. And if those stories...

    Kevin Mayer did it. He was a mediocre sprinter, never ran sub11 until 2016, age 24.

    Of course, with all the new technology we know exactly how many of those from behind the board were actually monster jumps. Mihambo's last jump, measured at 7.16, was 19cm off the board. Would have...

    Vetter had a piece of bone in his foot that had dislodged, that was why he had so many problems this year and very few competitions. It has been removed now and he should be back to old form in 2020....

    Imagine what Kaul can do if he actually manages to get his 100m time down to 10.80. He said that was his main focus for next year and with a 10.80 he should be able to improve his LJ and hurdles too....

    But that logic went out the window with Doha. The IAAF clearly doesn't care at all who they go against on TV as long as they make money somehow. NFL, NHL, MLB, soccer leagues all over Europe, didn't...

    If you go by the IAAF points tables (and who wouldn't), Mihambo's 7.30 was the performance of the meet. Don't ask me why, i'm only the messenger.

    Mihambo 7.30 = 1284 points
    Muhammad 52.16 = 1263...

    Her coach said, Mihambo's second attempt was good, but during the last few steps she focused too much on hitting a big jump. The third attempt was more of a "safety jump", more focused on not fouling.
  13. Why? Exactly what information does it provide?...

    Why? Exactly what information does it provide? Kevin Mayer had no ranking, so logically he wasn't the favourite? At least that is what the rankings would suggest. There are lots of examples where the...

    That is exactly what is required during the season. An athlete needs to know right away what the impact of a result is on his rankings, especially if the qualification deadline is coming up.

    In Doha she would have been 4th fastest in the semis with 11.0. Besides, it doesn't have to be about winning, maybe she wants to do it for fun. I haven't looked at the Tokyo timetable, but if it's...

    Depends on how fast she can get. She ran that 11.21 this year without any specific sprint training. After the German championships she said there was room for improvement in the LJ because they...

    She actually started the speed work two years ago after she suffered an edema. Because of the injury she couldn't achieve the same take-off angle as before. To make up for this, her coach focused on...

    Unfortunately that topic is no longer current. Pinto is injured and out of the relay, that cost them at least half a second. And with Lückenkemper apparently out of shape it would be a miracle if...

    Even at age 21, Busemann already had problems with his hip and elbow. The hip eventually forced him to switch legs for the hurdles, which cost him a second. The elbow problems prevented him from...

    Because the shipped people in. There were people sitting alone in the stadium, 15 minutes later they were surrounded by 100s of "fans" all in identical clothes.

    But are they allowed to? As i understand it, the four who ran the 100 have to be in the relay team of six you can enter. That would leave only two slots for 200m women. And the second question, were...

    If you want to see what Pinto can do on the third leg, watch this video (ISTAF 2019/41.67s). She destroys the Chinese woman and the Chinese still ran a 42.3 in that race....

    But then Pinto set a 200m PB today, same for Kwayie, so they are in shape. Pinto simply has a mental block in big individual races. Lückenkemper has had a big problem with her start for years, but...

    My theory is, NOP wants total domination, so they send Hassan to do the 1500 because Klosterhalfen is better over 5000 and Hassan would win whatever she runs.

    No pressure at all for GDR, hasn't been sind 1989. Now if you are talking about GER, USA has to handle the pressure of being favourites at almost every championship and they do well, why not Germany?
