      • Underwhelming start lists for Melbourne Track Classic are up at https://cdn.revolutionise.com.au/cup...joeegnliye.pdf

        This meet is certainly a far cry from what it was Australia's premier event a decade or two back.

        Women's 400H and 200m fields (to name just two events) at lower standards than at similar Melbourne meets in the 70s.

        The few positives include:
        - Matt Denny back in the Discus
        - Women's 400m has Oboye, Beer, O'Grady, Blackburn, Bisset, Loizou
        - Men's 400m has a big field including Solomon (if he starts) & Bol
        - Women's 1500m with Blundell, Duncan, Gregson, Griffith, Seccafien

        That's All Folks!

          Wow, that's just sad. They'd be better off substituting the woodchop for some of those events...

          There was a lot of talk early on about needing to take every competitive opportunity, blah, blah, blah, but I'm not seeing much evidence of it, especially amongst the sprinters.

            I can see why sprinters wouldn't be rushing to compete at a night meet at McGuire Stadium this time of year. Probably cold, wet and running in a headwind. Understandable they would save themselves for warm Brisbane meets.

            But still the fields in pretty much every event are pretty small/thin/low quality. Maybe it's time to forget about Melbourne as a 'classic' meet.

              Well there's the need for competition, and there is the need for times. There's nothing wrong in competing in adverse conditions if the competition gets you closer to your time goals. There's no point saving yourself for that one good weather race if you are underdone coming in.

              Patrick Johnson ran his NR in his 16th 100m race and 26th race, including 200s (heats included) with winds ranging from +5.7 in Perth and -3.3 & -2.2 in Melbourne and Sydney respectively and a -1.4 in the final at Brisbane nationals. All these prepped him to run 9.93 not long after.

              Browning has run only one 200 and eight 100s so far. You'd want to be very confident of your peaking program with so few comps, especially in a La NiƱa year, where there's no guarantee Brisbane will be good conditions.

                      HAM Carlin 60.09m

                      IAAF site lists Jett's PB for the senior implement at 65.99m (Nov 2020). I wonder if this a mistake; not sure he could improve 15m in 9 months and throw it further than his PB with the 6kg implement.

                          Cool - then the mark yesterday was a 5m PB for the 17yo. In fact all three of his legal throws would have been PBs.

                            Melbourne Track Classic Thursday 25 March

                            As this persistent rainy weather system moves down the east coast, Melbourne will get a taste over the next few days but nowhere near as badly as SE Qld and NSW.

                            BOM forecast for 25 March is 14-20 heading to an overnight low of 11. It will be partly cloudy with 60% chance of showers in Melbourne proper, expecting only 1-3mm if it does rain. Friday is predicted to be cloudy but probably fine.

                            No headwinds though, they'll get quartering tailwinds as the 100m straight is WNW to ESE. Prediction is for westerly 20 to 30 km/h becoming light during the evening, so they should be legal.

                            Overall, it's not bad for Melbourne and if they're lucky, reasonably good conditions for the later events. As ever, we shall see what happens.

                            Queensland Track Classic Saturday 27 March.

                            Brisbane is looking pretty good with partly cloudy conditions, 20-28C heading to an overnight low of 20C. There's a slight (20%) chance of a shower and light winds. What a difference a few days makes!

                                Some were mentioned but no need to apologise. That grumpy old weather forecaster & this near-senile trivia buff welcome company in here


                                A bunch of our decathletes have managed quite a few individual event PBs this year. Be good to see them competing in a multi together (hopefully at the Nats).

                                The most exciting thing to come out of our current under-age multi championships is realising we have a young heptathlete whose name rhymes with our current tennis #1. Ashleigh Carty.
