    I'm not sure Hobbs can go sub-11 this season but congrats to her for a great series of runs so far in 2022.

    Some highlights from Europe in the last few days:

    Kladno Hazia Kladenske Memorial, Kladno, 14 June: James Preston 800m 1:45.37 PB (1), elevates him from ninth to third behind the two Knights; Peter Snell and John Walker on the New Zealand all-time list.

    Merck-Laufgala, Pfungstadt, 18 June: James Preston, 800m, 1:45.30 PB (4). He betters his PB for the second time in four days. Could he be the man to finally take down Snell's NZ record, the oldest in the NZ books.

    Paris Diamond league - Hobbs with her 2nd fastest ever legal time 11.10 for 6th on debut in the DL - good effort - what chance sub 11 this year with people to chase for a change!

    Tom Walsh, MSP record holder, starts in Ostrava, Tuesday against a solid field. He seems to have emerged from a few difficult years during COVID but his first two overseas competitions of 21.60 and 21.96 were both better than anything domestically unlike last year where he struggled to improve on his NZL best. Fingers crossed for something closer to his 2019 season.

    Joe Kovacs is the only thrower in the field over 22m this year with 22.49, clear of Italy's Zane Weir who set a PB of 21.99 back in March. Walsh with a season best of 21.96 is third ranked behind them but I wouldn't be surprised if he joined Kovacs with 22m+ overnight, although I'd still be betting on a Kovacs win.

    Everybody else is down by close to a metre on SBs but the worst PB is 21.94, so that's unlikely to stay the case as the big men get into the swing of their seasons.

    Bold! However, I think you might be right, unless the AIS develops some springier spikes...

    Brisbane Track Classic - NZL athletes

    Rosie Elliott won the W400 in 52.83, her second fastest time after her 52.59 at Hawkes Bay earlier this year. This is only her third time under 53, all this year.

    1 Elliott, Rosie 97 New Zealand 52.83
    2 Carli, Sarah 94 Australia 52.90

    James Preston and Brad Mathas filled the minor placings in the M1500, showing potential for the northern season.

    Preston just off his PB of 1:46.25 set in Sydney last month. Mathas set a year's best of 1:46.50, slashing his previous best of 1:47.42 from the same race as Preston's PB. However, he still has a bit to go to match his 2021 PB of 1:46.01 in Canberra.

    1 Bol, Peter 94 Australia 1:46.12
    2 Preston, James 97 New Zealand 1:46.38
    3 Mathas, Brad 93 New Zealand 1:46.50

    "Aussie" Eddie Nketia finished second in the M100.

    1 Doran, Jake 00 Australia 10.28 -1.5
    2 Osei-Nketia, Edward 01 New Zealand 10.30 -1.5

    Livvy Wilson finished 5th in the W100 with 11.79 +0.2, outside her top 10 lifetime runs.

    Sam Tanner finished 3rd in the M1500 with 3:41.18, Jordan McLennan was a DNF

    1 Davies, Callum 99 Australia 3:40.67
    2 Thomas, Jude 02 Australia 3:41.11
    3 Tanner, Samuel 00 New Zealand 3:41.18

    Georgia Hulls finished 2nd in the W200 with 23.56 into a 1.6 headwind. This is still her 7th fastest time ever!

    1 Lewis, Torrie 05 Australia 23.18 -1.6
    2 Hulls, Georgia 99 New Zealand 23.56 -1.6


    Holly Manning finished 8th in the W800 in 2:06.71, 3 seconds down on her PB of 2:03.76 from earlier this year. With a 59s first lap by winner Bendere Oboya, there was every opportunity for fast times.

    Good to see Hobbs make a NZL team after last year's unfortunate decision.

    We also know Beamish is in form. He set a NRs indoors over 5000 in December last year, 3000 in January this year as well as a PB over 1500 of 3:39.86 in early February which put him at #4 on the NZL indoor all time list.

    With his 1/100 win outdoors over Ollie Hoare in 3:36.53 at the Sound Running TEN, he now passes his previous 3:37.57 to push Dick Quax out of 11th place AT outdoors.

    [DOH!! - edit to change 1500 to outdoor data not indoor ]
