    I formally bring down the velvet curtain on the 2021 stage and replace it with the new vibrancy of 2022 action at an exciting new venue with classier front of house staff:

    It IS 76 Olympian Peter Fitzgerald who is coaching Aidan Murphy btw. He does it from Melbourne via video etc and has apparently only met Aidan for about six weeks and seen him run competitvely only once.

    In a radio interview from Adelaide, Aidan said at a young age he competed in surf-life saving, BMX and tennis but chose athletics which his Mum put him onto.

    Says he is keen for Commonwealth Games in 2022 but his main focus is Paris 2024.

    Actually he finished first cos he ran in the second division (like his 100 yesterday).

The PBs of those athletes are:

    6028 Tori WEST QSAC 16 FEB 2020
    5915 Celeste MUCCI Gold Coast 13 APR 2018
    5835 Alysha BURNETT Taipei City 27 AUG 2017
    5832 Megan WHEATLEY Melbourne 15 APR 2012

    There is a substantial gap to Australia's best from yesteryear with only 4 making the WA alltime list (>= 6200):

    6695 Jane FLEMMING Auckland (NZL) 28 JAN 1990
    6387 Glynis NUNN-CEARNS Los Angeles 04 AUG 1984
    6369 Kylie WHEELER Beijing 16 AUG 2008
    6354 Jane JAMIESON Kuala Lumpur 17 SEP 1998

    There is only one other athlete between Tori West and Jamieson and that is Sharon Jaklofsky with her 6118w back in 1989.

    The 4 in the WA list puts AUS at less than half the numbers of a much smaller country such as NED but much better than ITA which has none! What's up with that?

    Some select countries:

    GER 31 (since reunification)
    USA 25
    RUS 22 (since USSR/URS)
    NED 9
    FRA 8
    GBR 7
    POL 6
    FIN 6
    BEL 4
    CAN 4
    LAT 3
    SWE 2
    NOR 1
    IRL 1
    ITA 0
    RSA 0
    For some reason, Italy rather punches below its weight in multi-events. They have had a few decathletes score in the lowish 8000s (Frullani, Poserina?) but no-one whose really threatened to medal even at European level. As for heptathletes, I cannot name one of the top of my head. It is quite possible that they have yet to win a European medal at age-group medal either.

    No. Connolly was a no show with Torrie Lewis running 23.53 -0.1 so not all that far from her PB 23.38 +1.9 from April, especially considering the wind differences. This bodes well for later in the season.

    High Jumper Oscar Miers shows he has inherited some of his Mum's 100m speed, taking over half a second off his PB.
    I'm assuming he's Monique's son? He finished 6th in a pretty good early season 200 with 4 guys clustered around 21 flat behind clear winner Connor Diffey. Diffey sets a new PB, trimming 1/100 second off his September time of 20.73 +1.4.

    Jacob Despard also a new PB and first time under 21 with a previous PB of 21.26 +1.7 from 2019. Jalen Rucker carves 2 tenths off his 21.28 -0.8 from 3 weeks ago. Oscar Miers gets a legit time beating his only other run of 21.55 +2.1 from 2020.

    1 Diffey, Connor 20.72
    2 Despard, Jacob 20.94
    3 Nasir Taib, Russel 21.03
    4 Rucker, Jalen 21.09
    5 Doran, Jake 21.15
    6 Miers, Oscar 21.44

    Jacob McCorry ran 13.86 +0.8 over the hurdles, no far off his 13.82 +1.0 PB from way back in 2019.

    Daniel Golubovic easily takes the Oceania title with a new PB of 8336, a solid gain on his June PB of 8223. While the first six events this weekend were ahead of June, he dropped big points in the DT and JT, blocking the chances for a 8400 score. Still, he should be very happy with his progess and bonus points for Oceania.

    The rest of the field was way below Golubovic with 2nd place going to Liam Gilbert 7255 and Martin Clark 6981.

    Second day does not seem to have been at the same standard as Day 1, finishing with 5773, still a big PB by 447 points. Details not yet published and no live results I could see - even ACT does a better job, at least when they actually complete all events...

    1. Taneille Crase, 5773
    2. Tiana Solley, 5110
    3. Amber Nyssen (17), 3208

    Yes, I imagine that's it. He's probably the fastest sprinter to ever race there in the dozen or so meets ever held there.
