    George Beamish, who I failed to realise was NZL, set an indoors NR in the 3000 with his winning 7:39.50 at the Millrose Games. This makes him the first Kiwi under 7:40 indoors and takes the record off Zane Robertson (7:44.16) and also places him ahead of the likes of Julian Oakley and Nick Willis.

    In fact, that time is also makes him only the third Kiwi under 7:40 indoors or out with only Nick Willis (7:36.91 NR) and John Walker (7:37.49) running faster outdoors. Being faster than Dixon and Quax is pretty impressive, even allowing for the passage of time.

      That's fantastic news about George Beamish. I haven't realized the records he's set. I'm happy about his progress! I'm his big fan

        Geordie Beamish is a training mate of Aussie Ollie Hoare and they're both in fine early season form.

                Hope to see her across the Tasman soon taking on Basic etc. Should see that record cut further...

                  It might be good for her to beat all the AUS runners to prevent any complacency. When was the last time NZL had better W100 sprinter than AUS?

                    Well, Hobbs was nearly there in 2019 when she won the AUS National 200m title and was second in the 100m to Naa Anang.

                    Other than that, probably back to 11 March 1939 when Doreen Lumley beat Decima Norman over 100y and equalled the world record. She wasn't actually better than the Aussies as a number of our sprinters co-held the record of 11.0. A week later Decima joined them as co-holders of the record when she reversed the verdict over Lumley.

                    Sadly, just over six months later Lumley, who was only 18 years old, was killed, along with her identical twin sister, in a car crash.


                    It seems to help though if you are a Kiwi sprinter named Doreen.

                    Though she wasn't actually faster than her Australian rivals on the ranking lists, in 1962 Doreen Porter became the first NZ woman sprinter to finish in a higher place than an Australian at the Commonwealth Games. She won silver in the 100y ahead of Australia's Brenda Cox who took the bronze.

                      Yeah, I just checked and the late, great Peter Heidenstrom agrees that Lumley was their best as he named her as the W100 rep in his NZL centenary dream team back in 1992. He named also her contemporaries Norma Wilson and Thelma Kench as being viable choices for the reserve spot.

                      I also had a deeper look at the last 30 years and AUS has always had somebody with a faster legal time except in 2020, where Hobbs' 11.38 tipped out the best AUS time of 11.50 by Jacinta Beecher.

                      However, with COVID running interference, it's hard to know if that is significant or not, especially as Hobbs' 2021 SB was beaten or equalled 8 times by two different AUS runners.

                      Of course, she is also temporarily ahead in 2022 by a large 2/10, 11.15 to the 11.36 by Bree Masters but we'll see after Adelaide.

                        PS. I noticed that the IAAF has a guy named Nathan MacDonell in the NZL W100 alltime list but he won a M200 race this year:

                        https://www.the-sports.org/athletics...85.html#536064

                        Some NZL posters might want to bring this to the attention of the NZL stats guys to ensure his profile is corrected, well, unless he's reassigned his gender - NZL has form for that.

                            IAAF lists also have an Aussie guy in our W100 or 200 rankings.

                              Good point, I should have picked that up but I was too distracted by Mr MacDonell's gender bending.
