    We need the stars to now align with Pearson, Breen and maybe Day back at their best.

    I miss MGT.

    Today's fields in Perth aren't the strongest but looks like some of the big boys and girls are coming out to play next week. A shed-load of Japanese visitors (and others) too.

    You're linking to next week's Brisbane Track Classic - Perth link is http://athletics.com.au/Compete/Even...-Track-Classic

    Also, I just noticed that AA is running a full week Nationals with under age, para and open. Is this supposed to be a better media event or just a cost saver? Anyway, it will be interesting to see the outcome.

    Yeah I was meaning to as they are deep fields with some stars like Frayne & Starc returning whereas Perth fields were pretty thin in most events.

    Probably a cost-saver as they are probably still paying off the last 'better media event' (ie Nitro).

    This is only the second time in history that Australia has had two 6.70m jumpers in the same calendar year after Brooke Stratton 7.05m NR and Chelsea Jaensch 6.70m did it in 2016.

    Lyn Jacenko was the first to hit 6.70m back in 1978 but nobody else matched her. The next to push past 6.70m was Robyn Lorraway (wife of TJer, Ken) and her career overlapped that of the next NR holder, Nicole Boegman, but they never jumped that distance in the same season.

    Boegman's career also overlapped that of Jane Flemming who only exceeded 6.70m once to win the Auckland CWG title. However, Nicole had a bad 1990 and did not clear 6.70m that year. If you want to take a technical view, the did both better the mark in the Australian 1989-90 season - Boegman (6.74m) in 1989 and Flemming in 1990.

    Boegman also overlapped with Bronwyn Thompson, Australia's first 7m jumper but Nicole was on the way down by that stage, so neither cleared 6.70 in the same year.

    Anang's 6.70m yesterday at sea level is clearly a better intrinsic jump than her 6.68 +1.9 at the well elevated Chaux de Fonds in 2017. Let's hope we get first two over 6.80/6.90/7.00 over the next few years!
