    This + the almost total elimination of controversies as to whether a throw has landed point first + the fact that a throw of 104.80m at many tracks would not land on grass even if it stuck in.

    Mine is that the effect on women's marks was much less than that. From what I remember, distances thrown by those that were in their prime at the time of the change did not drop that much and there...

    I doubt they are sandbagging en masse. I think by chance many of them are off-form at the same time while last year it was the opposite of that.

    Probably that no-one can agree as to what the best schedule would actually be.

    The only conventions that have remained constant in my living memory is that 100/200, 800/1500 & 5000/10000 (&SP/DT &...

    Good list. Although I was born late '67 so I'm too young for first-hand memories of these. Will have to look up the Youngbloods.

    That seems wise to me. Apparently she has been making some technical changes but has not thrown more than 67m something this year.

    I remember Davies saying that his experience of the '68 LJ final was like teeing off second in a sudden-death golf play-off after your opponent had shot a hole-in-one.

    I remember an interview with Gunnell where she said she enjoyed 4x400s (best split sub 50) and indoor 400s (European Champ) but did not enjoy flat outdoor 400s. She was a sub 13 100 hurdler.

    As the world record in the individual 400 at the time was 45.8, I prefer to think that McKenley won the relay for Jamaica rather than Moore lost it. I think the equivalent now would be Moore running...
