        Let's see if he can match the Goondiwindi Galloper, Damien Marsh, who won the then IAAF Grand Prix final in Monaco 1995.

        He ran 10.13 +0.1 to beat Linford Christie, Donovan Bailey, Dennis Mitchell, Bruny Surin and John Drummond.

        Marshy turned 50 this year, so might be as grey as Gunsynd, but I would never be so rude as to say it out loud...

          Not sure he's fresh enough to do a Marshy, but good experience nonetheless. That 1990 World Juniors team was an amazing mob of talent, wasn't it?

          PS - was Archer a grey? Thought you might recall

          • And according to Tarbystats, the 8 (plus one pace) is a record for Australians in a DL final.

              Archer was a bay and a NSW horse, so not a classy Goondiwindi Grey like Gunsynd and Marsh. However, I did win 30 pounds on Archer back in '62, so I bought half of Hawthorrne with the winnings and developed it for rentals. The capital gains since then make me happy...

                    • Stewart McSweyn finishes 8th in the Great North Run, his half-marathon debut, with 62-52.

                      Not bad for a 1500m runner, who is surely buggered after a looooong season.

                      • Marjorie Jackson Nelson (b. 13 Sep 1931) hits a milestone birthday today, turning 90. Out of a modestly sized team of 13 men and 4 women at the 1952 OG, reunion options have now shrunk to just her and John Landy, who's one year older.

                        Obviously, Vice-Regal roles expand the lifespan, I might need to look into getting one...

                        • Australian viewers might be interested in a few former athletes participating in SAS Australia on the 7 network. John Steffensen and Jana Pittman represent themselves but Nova Peris sent daughter Jessica in her stead.

                            After nearly 70 years, still a record-holder of sorts.

                            Her winning margin in the Olympic 100m (0.38 seconds) has never been bettered by any champion since.

                              Kurtis Marschall takes third in Zagreb with an outdoor 5.82 PB on his second attempt. This left him down a place on Sam Kendricks (USA) who cleared that height at first attempt. Both failed at the winning height of 5.87, leaving KC Lightfoot (USA) to take the win. This height is still down on his overall PB of 5.87i at Clermont-Ferrand in 2019.

                              Marschall has been one athlete that has clearly been derailed by COVID restrictions which, combined with injury, derailed his expected progression to being a 6m jumper. After a promising start to the year with a 5.80 in Perth, won the WA champs, also in 5.80 but NHd in the final at Nationals.

                              He recovered to jump 5.75 and 5.80 in his last two comps in July before departing for the OG where he made the final with 5.75 but repeated his Nationals disaster in Tokyo. Since then he's struggled with a best of 5.70 out of four cometitions including a 5.41 for 10th at ISTAF, two days before Zagreb, his 19th final of the year.

                              Hopefully, this year has blown out the cobwebs and helped him stabilise enough so that he can build a much better year next year.

                              • Peter Bol was the only other Australian to run in Zagreb, finishing 4th in 1:45.31, not far behind the 1:44.93 NR of the winner, Catalin Tecuceanu of Romania.
