  • Cameron McEntyre won the MJT at the Oregon Relays with an 81.96 PB on his first throw. He only had two other legal throws, both under 80m.

    His previous PB was 81.51 at the Crest Athletic Centre in Sydney back in October 2020, which was also his first competition over 80m. He had another 80m competition in December that year, which makes the Oregon Relays only his third 80m competition.

    Isabella (Izzy) Thornton-Bott, representing Oregon, came second in the W1500 with a new PB of 4:13.75, taking 2 1/2 seconds off her previous best of 4:16.56, also set at Hayward Field back on 1 April this year.

    Prior to this her PB dated back to 2021 when she ran 4:17.33 in winning the 2021 NSW W1500 championships. She came 7th in the Nationals final later in the season.

    Adam Spencer (not the maths guy), representing Wisconsin, finished third in the 1500 in 3:37.40 PB, cutting 2 1/2 seconds of his previous best and also ducking under the meet record of 3:37.83. This updates his previous PB of 3:39.94 set finishing second at the Melbourne Track Classic back in March 2021. That was his first, and only time under 3:40 until yesterday.

      However, injury intervened and OG options disappeared. Later in the year she announced she was moving to the USA to compete for Oregon in the NCAA.

      I assumed she would not compete indoors and focus on the summer season with NCAA and WC beckoning but she did have very modest competitions indoors.

      I could not find Keely Small in the Oregon Relays and then found out she is no longer on the Ducks roster! 'Tis a mystery.

        I saw someone mention on LR in early March that that she had left.

            The relay teams have been rewriting the Cal records in the las few years, including a sub-44 at the Mt SAC Relays this weekend. All 6 of the top 10 teams with Stevens in:

            1. 43.99 Hicks, Abba, Stevens, Shaheed, - 2022
            2. 44.25 Hicks, Abba, Stevens, Shaheed - 2022
            5. 44.45 Richardson, Abba, Stevens, Shaheed - 2022
            6. 44.49 Wise, Corrales Nelson, Stevens, Patterson - 2019
            7. 44.51 Spinks, Abba, Stevens, Shaheed - 2022
            9. 44.59 Abba, Stevens, Redon, Wise - 2021

            Individually, she is sitting at # 5 and # 10 with 11.43/23.72. Team member, Ezinne Abba, is # 1 and # 2 with 11.12/22.99, so that helps the team as well.
            Maisie Stevens had another successful relay outing on 30 April at the Big Meet hosted by Stanford, with the team winning with 44.39, the school # 5 all time. This now gives Stevens a share of 7 of the top 10 times.

            Her individual sprint times were not that great considering the big winds; 11.42 (+3.6) / 23.57(+3.9) These are her fastest times for the year (just) and they place her on the TFRRS NCAA performanc list at =59/>100.

            The Big Meet was the last competition of her regular season with only three potential opportunities to come - Pac 12 Champs, 13-15 May at Eugene and NCAA West Preliminary 25-28 May and NCAA Champs 8-11 June. Her current ranking suggest she won't get to all three. Given this seems to be her last year of eligibility, it will be interesting to see what her plans are for later in the year.

            Latest Cal relay listing:

            1. 43.99 Hicks, Abba, Stevens, Shaheed - 2022
            2. 44.25 Hicks, Abba, Stevens, Shaheed - 2022
            3. 44.28 Omwanghe, T. Johnson, Hawes, Carter - 2004
            4. 44.32 Broom, Bonty, Holmes, Garrett - 2008
            5. 44.39 Hicks, Abba, Stevens, Shaheed - 2022
            6. 44.45 Richardson, Abba, Stevens, Shaheed - 2022
            7. 44.49 Wise, Corrales Nelson, Stevens, Patterson - 2019
            8. 44.51 Spinks, Abba, Stevens, Shaheed - 2022
            9. 44.56 Dixon, Bonty, Lewis, Garrett - 2009
            10. 44.59 Abba, Stevens, Redon, Wise - 2021
            11. 44.66 Broom, Bonty, Dixon, Garrett - 2009
            12. 44.75 Price, Stewart, Dixon, Garrett - 2011

              That's Law's 3rd fastest time ever and one of the seven times he's run faster than his PB of 21.11 in 2021. A pretty successful year so far.

              • Jacinta Beecher 22.70 (-0.2) and 22.87 (legal) today in Shizuoka.

                • At the Continental Bronze meet in Shizuoka today, Jacinta Beecher smashed her 200m PB running 22.87 (-0.5).

                  In the final she improved even more clocking 22.70 (-0,2) for another comprehensive win.

                  Her time moves her up to 8th on the Aussie A/T list and she was very happy after her win.

                  We might have three women running the event at WC.

                  Beecher will next race at the Tokyo Golden Gala meet.

                  • Was interested to see the announced teams for the Oceania Champs in a month's time.

                    Some interesting entries and some notable absentees though some will be more interested in gaining WR points & prize-money on the circuit.

                    Kath Mitchell in the javelin although she hasn't competed since the Tokyo Games. Brooke Stratton another in the LJ.

                    Torrie Lewis only down for the U20 4x100m so she may be just training through this meet and using the event purely for WJ baton practise.

                    And Chris Douglas travelling back downunder to compete in both 110 & 400 Hurdles.

                    Some large teams in all three (Open, U20, U18) categories and at least the relay times will count for WC qual purposes.

                      Beecher was sitting at =#31 performer with 23.26 (-1.6) from 2020 and now is # 9 according to IAAF, just ahead of Nova Peris (22.74) and behind Riley Day (22.56).

                      Even her 22.87 would have moved her up to #13, ahead of 68 OG bronze medallist, Jenny Lamy. Most impressive was two high quality consecutive runs after a couple of years without progress. Let's hope that this is now her new regular level.

                      • The Victorian State Budget was announced today and AUD 2.6 billion was committed for the 2026 Commonwealth Games. There was no detail on expenditure but the timing seems to be firming up to March to avoid conflict with the Australian Football League (AFL) competition which has had, and will always have, a higher priority than CWG or OG.

                        We will have to wait a bit longer to see how athletics will be accommodated in Ballarat.

                          I'll call my ranking in above post a typo...

                          But gotta be careful with those IAAF lists

                          A bit further down they have Colleen Beazley at 15th (in a time that I'm pretty sure was windy) and Colleen Pekin at #17...

                          • Great runs for Beecher on one day and another good signal for the 4x100m in Birmingham along with Connolly, Day, Masters and Lewis - who I hope will emulate Cathy Freeman and race the Comm Games 4x100m as a junior.
