    How did young Ms. Williams perform?
    Won easily with 7.53.
    Is this a disappointing result from a British perspective? Perhaps it is better to stop oberving such a promising youngster and just let her develop without the microscope.

    Speaking of youth, too bad 15 year old Jodie Williams didn't show up, she might well have won.

    Dreadful times in women's 60 meters, looks like something you'd expect from a youth meet. Speaking of youth, too bad 15 year old Jodie Williams didn't show up, she might well have won.

    GBR should be in, if they want to be.

    A few interesting choices for the selectors this week, for sure.

    Does anyone know the rules for 4x400m entry for the Euro Indoors? I'm hoping we put a team forward - though I would expect a few dodgy team selections. I could see a team of Donna, Maz, Kelly S plus A N Other (Jen Meadows, Kim Wall or Vicky Barr - hell even Joice if she goes in the 200m!) getting a silver behind the Russians

    Even though it was pretty dismal, there were some decent performances. In the 1500, Farah won in a SR of 3:40.57 and went out hard (1:54 at 800), Donna Fraser claimed a sprint double, winning the 200 in 23.48 and the 400 in a PB of 52.83 (Okoro 2nd in a PB of 52.98, which bodes very well.) Meadows ran well in the 800 - 2:01.67 from the front and Steve Lewis cleared 5.65m on his first attempt before three failures at 5.82m. Kelly Sotherton was very solid in the shot put with a 14.50m effort, as well as four others over 14m but only took two jumps in the HJ.

    Sotherton had a disasterous LJ, notregisteringa proper jump. She had back treatment afterwards but came back witha good SB today in the shot with 14.50

    a $2k reward for winning an american race sans expenses makes more of a dent in his iaaf debt than the £50 for winning the english indoors

    I would imagine he also needs to win national trials to guarantee his place at Championships - remember how Pickering was put up as the 'last great hope' of GBR morality to stop him auto qualifying for last year's worlds - he's not stupid, and knows not all selectors will be on his side, come the discretionary places - whatever CVC says

    He is pretty much broke. The small $$$ he can earn on the track goes straight to the IAAF. Doesn't really make much sense to fork out for a return airfare to the US just to shave one or two hundredths off his PB. He might not even even break it, so it could be a completely wasted journey.

    Anyway, his main aim isn't to set a PB. His main goal at the moment is to win the European Indoors in Turin, get publicity from that and then launch his autobiography off the back of that.
