  • British results (Hitchon UK hammer best, Thompson 27:27.36)

    At the Bupa London 10,000 today, Mo Farah set his third British record, this time over 10km. He ran it from the front, setting a time of 27:50, which was pretty impressive because it's quite a challenging course. It's also the proposed course for the 2012 Olympics, but I dont' like it - too twisty and narrow and rather 2006 European Champs-esque.

    At the Inter-Counties in Bedford today, Eilidh Child set a massive 400m hurdles PB of 55.52, which was just 0.02 off the A standard for Berlin but she's made great strides in 2009 because her pre-2009 PB was 56.87.

    Also in Bedford, Lee McConnell ran a 23.29 200m (-0.7.)

    Not sure it was mentioned but 15-year-old Jodie Williams ran 23.50 for the 200m last week into a slight headwind, which is more than can be said for our UK 100m record-holder, who ran outside 24sec in Rabat :roll:

    That's a huge improvement for Child.

      Certainly is. It's only her second race of the season as well and she's already lowered her PB by more than one-second. Things are looking really promising in this event because behind Tasha Danvers, we have the likes of Eilidh Child, Meghan Beesley and Perri Shakes-Drayton who are all improving. On the men's side, things are improving as well and Rhys Williams has made a decent comeback in recent weeks after loads of injuries due to bad coaching (not naming any names...)

        She ran 11.56 last weekend too, although she looks set to run much quicker later on this season.

        Jessica Judd also set a UK U15 record of 4:23.01 in the 1500m last weekend.

        Child's time puts her at No.2 on the UK all time U23 list, behind Sally Gunnell and ahead of Tasha Danvers. Pretty good company!

          Jessica Judd's performance was also ran at one of the youths champs i believe as well, so once the BMC races start to get going soon, i'm imagining that time could be seriously revisied again....

              At the Bedford International Games, Jodie Williams ran a tremendous 200m PB of 23.25 (-0.1 m/s) :shock: She doesn't even turn 16 until September!

              As well as this, Williams ran 11.58 for the 100m (+0.3 m/s)

              Jessica Ennis set another javelin PB of 44.18m (previous best 43.08m) and she jumped 1.89 for the high jump.

              Eden Francis also had a real breakthrough setting a discus PB of 59.27m (previous best 56.57m) and a shot PB of 16.53m (previous best 16.19m.)

              Zoe Derham also threw 67.73m to win the hammer. Even though she won't be a world beater or anything, it makes a change that we have a thrower who can consistently throw at a decent standard, which is more than can be said for others.

              Nothing too much of note on the men's side. MLF returned to win the 100m in 10.60, Mervyn Luckwell won the JT (78.82m) and Robbie Grabarz won the HJ (2.22m.)

              In Castellon at the European Champion Clubs Cup, Tomlinson jumped 8.15m which is a pleasant result after a crap 2008.

              Michael Bingham also ran a 400m PB of 45.05 at the NCAA East Regional Champs.

              Phillips Idowu will compete for the first time in 2009 tomorrow in Chania...

                That's fantastic from Eden Francis nevets! And she's still an U23. That's a big chunk to add to her discus PB.

                It's also good news that Mervyn Luckwell is continuing to be consistent in the high 70s, low 80s.

                      I believe that site updates from http://www.alltime-athletics.com/ so I was surprised to see how sprightly Helena Fibingerova was over 400m with a 50.89 when she was 48 years old. :lol:

                      Just imagine what she could have done if she had turned to the event in her youth instead of all that shot putting! :shock:

                      pela2, I think this was a masters discus result. Edit: Of course, could be somebody else with the same name but different date of birth.

                      Reference to your list below.

                        It was Helena Fuchsova that was fifth in the Berlin 400m.

                          The name is now corrected. It should be correct at http://www.apulanta.fi/ in it's next update.

                          Thanks for pointing out this 'small' error :?

                            Is that Schersing result correct? I can't find any other references to it. You'd expect it to be on the IAAF junior all time list or on Tilastopaja, but it's on neither.

                              I'm at work at the moment, but will check this at home later today. My guess that I have the wrong year or the wrong athlete here.

                              It's probably Romy Müller which should have this performance to her name.
