      What kind of journalism is this? Jo Fenn's pic instead of Marilyn Okoro. I thought there was news of a Fenn return. :cry:

      On the same page, Baulch tips Elias to get the Bronze and he doesn't even show up. :lol: How disappointing these trials will be.

        What does everyone think about Dobriskey asking for permission to skip the trials in order to run in a paced race elsewhere? I think she shouldn't receive special dispensation because if she's fit enough to run in the week then she should be fit enough for the trials. I would give her the benefit of the doubt if she was the only athlete with the A standard but as things stand, we have about three other athletes who have the ability to make the world final so I don't think she should be let off. Twell has cancelled her participation at the European U23 champs so why can't Lisa change her race schedule?

              defar is running the 10k at the UK championships tomorrow, look at the results of the mens 10k, 2-11th place i wish they could have put her in todays race with the men, it would have been perfect for her to get a very fast time, running somewhere with the 2nd to 11th place men who were between 29:22 - 30:07.

                I agree entirely. She clearly is the number one in terms of world standing etc currently but this year has done nothing and I think would have been soundly beaten by the others...

                I could understand if it were the likes of The Big O or even Goldie Sayers- events where one athlete is sky high above the others- but at the end of the day, athletes SHOULD want to compete in their national championships and this event is ludicrously weak as it is with all the withdrawals...

                      Williamson looked superb in the semi, with 10.15 into -1.2.

                        Turner wins the 110mH in 13.47 into a strong headwind.

                        A very good performance considering he could barely manage this last year even with a tailwind!

                        Possible world finalist?

                            I think GB&NI have just found the much sought after fourth relay runner in hurdler Perri Shakes-Drayton who ran 51.81. Unfortunately, McConnell and Sanders are dodgy for Berlin.

                                Williamson's run was seriously impressive. Just before the race, I turned to my dad and said "I reckon Williamson is going to take this one" but I didn't think he'd win by that much or run that fast (given the conditions). According to JRM's wind/altitude calculator, 10.05 into a -1.8ms is worth 9.93 basic, or 9.84 with a perfect 2.0ms :shock:

                                He is a very good championship performer - Beijing was a bit of a blip, but he was carrying a slight injury. Turin was also a bit of a disappointment, but given his build and his strong finish he is more of a 100m specialist anyway. If he can maintain this form 'til Berlin, he should be a finalist and will be Europe's next sub-10 man.
