    Well, somebody has to get to 2.32 in a big meet and it might as well be Protsenko who has 2.28 before this season + 2.30 from indoors. 2.32. The way it looks now,
    2.32 is the new 2.40!
    It seems...

    He is a smoother and more efficient hurdler than Benjamin. Good illustration over the 10th hurdle. Benjamin was too upright while Warholm kept his forward lean. I think Warholm has hurdled much more...

    Kenya should have done something for him years ago. He is 31 now and has been around for a long time but did 2.30 in 2018. All kinds of problems technically.

    But there is no avoiding the fact that when they moved the center of gravity on the javelin
    6cm forward it did cause the Javelin to rotate forward earlier and force the tip down, thus reducing the...

    I would think about 5-6 metres for the men. I think the main reason for the change was the danger when 90m throws landed flat (which happened often) When those javelins skidded through the turf bad...

    Yeah, I hope you are right but time is starting to run out now. Should like to know what the deal is with Vetter.

    Yeah, what's with the Germans in the Jav. Are they sandbagging?

    Glad to see Starc clearing 2.30 again. Maybe 2.35 is enough to win in Doha. They all seem to be gone. Ukhov, Lysenko, Drouin,...

    We blew it! (Billy)
    A very special movie. I liked Peter Fonda. Last time I saw him was in "The Limey" in 1999.

    The way I remember this was that Elliott was dead tired at that point and was not sure what the towel meant. Was the WR possible? or did it mean the record was possible and Elliott was clear of the...

    With a better focus and fewer races in 1958 I don't think 3.52 and 3.33 would have been out of the question for Elliott. What if he had been born in 1945 instead of 1938?
  12. Yes, except when he was on the starting line!...

    Yes, except when he was on the starting line! Actually, 1958 was his greatest year. He never got up to the same level in 1960 despite his 3,35.6 in the OG. In 1958 he even won the Commonwealth 800...

    This is exactly what happened at the World Indoor Champs in 2014. In the Women's HJ Licwinko and Kuchina were supposed to have a jump-off. However, they both declined and got to share 1st place.

    I don't see why a superb athlete like Warholm should have more of a problem with technique at sub 47 speed than the other 2 top guys. He is close to going 13 steps over all ten hurdles. Today he did...

    I don't think so. If Lisek missed and Sam then refused to take part in the jump-off it would mean that Sam was defeated and Lisek would have been declared the winner at 5.95.

    I agree. I don't think the Owens answer was ridiculous at all from a non-track fan at that guy's age.
    Probably more surprised that nobody had a clue about what the "R" stood for in NRA when the...

    To me at least, there is no comparison even if the Women's game certainly has...
