    Yep, if you want your athletes to be elite, you need an elite target, especially as the 800 standard is well down on adjacent events.

    1:42.5x would put you roughly in the top 20 AT performer and top50 performance. Other events either side of 800 for comparison, with AUS best performer.

    400 - 43.9x/43.8x Clark 71 AT performer 44.38

    800 - Bol 162 AT performer 1:44.11/Deng 176 AT performer 1:44.21

    1500 - 3:29.xx/3:29.xx McSweyn 27 AT performer 3:29.51

    5000 - 12:49.xx/12:51.xx Mottram 65 AT performer 12:55.76

        The meet records make for interesting reading. Many will still be there after tonight:

        Young Vault-emort was there back in 92 when Christie ran his 10.26 for the oldest record on the books though the meet was then held on the lovely Olympic Sports Field at Kensington instead of at Santos Stadium.

        A huge thunderstorm was approaching as the meet started and resulted in a 30 minute pause to the programme. The last race to be run before the break was the women's 800m and the women had just run the first 100m when a huge gust of wind sprung up and I remember seeing Wendy Old, who was a small, lean athlete being visibly pushed back by the wind as they entered the back straight. And then the rain started to come down.

        The crowd - which was at least 5000 from memory - stampeded towards the canteen where they were handing out garbage bags. Everyone poked a head and arm holes in the bags and wore them as impromptu raincoats while trying to find any kind of shelter (there wasn't much at OSF).

        Christie ran after the break I think and though the track was pretty wet the weather didn't affect later events as much as those unlucky 800m ladies.

                That MTJ record by Andrew Murphy was his second 17.18 jump in Adelaide, just over 7 years after his first at the end of 1989. It was also an =PB outdoors and is still his AT #2 outdoor jump behind his 17.32 4th place in WC Sevilla '99.

                Also, in WTJ, Baya Rahouli only has 43 TJ competitions better than the AUS NR. Sigh, maybe one day a local will...

                    Murph must have had some happy memories today when walking into the Mile End track. The live stream just showed him talking to his son who's competing in the triple and of course he's there with Rohan Browning too. I wonder if like me he also wishes Olympic Sports Field was still hosting aths meets

                    The live stream is pretty decent production-wise but the commentators seem to be a bit rusty lol. Imagine saying an 8-30 steeple is still on the cards when they get the bell at 7-30 ish.

                    • Oops - shouldn't disparage commentators when I posted the meet record for the women's steeple in Adelaide as being Lacaze's national record. Women's steeple not held before at the Adelaide meet..

                          10.12 for Mr Browning and some other PBs in the race too.

                          Decision to switch to back straight looked a bit of a worry when the first sprint (B women's 100) was into a headwind but Mother Nature smiled for the next three races.

                          • Quality run from Browning, class showed from the start.

                            Can he take Shirvington's 6.55 NR?

                            • Oboye showing her lack of experience in that 800m but augers well for some races with Bisset, Hall et al in the near future & at nationals.

                                You bloody expatriates overseas rating indoor aths!

                                He got a pretty good start tonight, so he has a chance I guess.
