                Johanna Jackson also smashed the British 5000m walk record by 30 seconds with 21:01.24. At that pace, she must have passed through 3000m in UK record time too.

                            That's great news from Tristan Thomas as he chases more 400mH PRs...

                            And should certainly open Justin Merlino's eyes to what high quality high hurdling is like...

                            Nice work from AA

                            Less impressive is the World X-Country Team announcement. Why only take 3 senior men?

                              Looks like a wtf news day....

                              Equally strange is this report of Australia bidding for the 2011 World XC Titles.
                              http://www.theage.com.au/news/sport/mel ... 92494.html

                              It mentions Melbourne, Geelong, Sydney and Queensland as possible venues, totall ignoring our new purpose-built XC facility in Canberra - the Robert de Castella track.....

                              *mind boggles*

                              And then Jana Rawlinson (via Chris) says she won't be running in Melbourne as "her event isn't on the programme" - http://www.foxsports.com.au/story/0,865 ... 18,00.html

                              Is this the same Jana who has competed on the Aussie circuit in recent years running 200m, 300m, 400m, 800m and 100m Hurdles more than she's competed at the 400H?

                                I was surprised by that too... perhaps they are concerned by the limited number of international flights into Canberra? But that didn't stop them putting parliament there
