    well, it's apparent Guliyev was only jogging through the rounds. But a 10.16 in the final couldn't catch Lemaitre's 10.04 (0.2).

    And guess whose European junior record now disappears?

    As with the Russian Championships, to keep the thread from collapsing under its own weight, at this point, I split off all posts that are dated Friday (yes, I realize some pertain to Thursday action).

    that is not correct, powell. look at the results of the 3 semis. he won his semi. he could have run 11 seconds and still qualified as long as he fiinished in the top 2. the other 2 semis seemed to be more weighted. 6 guys in the other semis finished faster than guliyev and the 2nd place brit and didn't qualify.

    Again, look at the previous Azerbaijan thread.

    He ran a 47,11 in the 400 m, a time that would have qualified him easily for the 400m individual final.

    It's going to be an intriguing battle in the men's decathlon tomorrow. Although Gardiner tops the European rankings in the junior-implement decathlon, Sweden's Petter Olsen (who has improved a lot this year but not contested a junior decathlon) should be the favourite to win. If everyone performs to PB level tomorrow, the scores should look something like this:

    Olsen - 7749
    Gardiner - 7683
    van der Plaetsen - 7602
    Kazmirek - 7569

    Gardiner had all of his strong events (100, LJ, SP) on day one, but seems to have timed his peak well (three PBs today) so will probably set a few PBs tomorrow. Olsen is a very good pole vaulter (PB of 5.14i) so will bank a lot of points there, and also boasts a much better 1500m PB than the other three mentioned above, so if he is in the lead going into the final event, he should have little trouble bringing home the gold. Van der Plaetsen, the current leader, had a dream day one, setting PBs in every event and banking a lot of points by coming first in the HJ (2.13m). Kazmirek also looks on course for a PB and should definitely be in the hunt for medals, should any of the others slip up.

    At this very minute Hayle Ibrahimov is running away with the men's 10k. Azerbaijan boasting some top juniors. :shock:
    Probably not - Layes sounds like an Ethiopian name too :?

    Meanwhile, Lemaitre ran 10.26 (-1.3) in the second semi without serious competition. Even with Guliyev in top form, he might be hard to beat...
    He didn't even bother winning his semi at the Universiade :!:

    1 210 Egypt EGY - Ibrahim Seoud Amr 2 4 1 20.64 Q
    2 134 Canada CAN - Smellie Gavin 1 3 1 20.67 Q
    3 128 Canada CAN - Effah Sam 2 3 2 20.75 Q
    4 48 Azerbaijan AZE - Guliyev Ramil 1 4 2 20.79 Q
    5 302 Honduras HON - Palacios Cruz Rolando 1 7 3 20.83 Q
    6 356 Japan JPN - Saito Hitoshi 1 6 4 20.87 Q
    7 556 South Africa RSA - Mpuang Thuso 2 5 3 20.89 Q
    8 377 Korea KOR - Juen Duck Hayng 1 5 5 20.93 PB
    9 519 Poland POL - Kubaczyk Robert 2 6 4 21.02 Q PB

    Then went .77 seconds faster in the final. :lol:

    Lemaitre isn't doing the 200 here.

    3 brits in the final of the mens 100m.

    The french runner is looking very impressive and Guilez(sp) is obviously in great form. With a +1 wind there could be fireworks.

    Looking good for a GB bronze as well.

    Also all GB lads through in the 1500, hopefully some PB's and a medal there. Looks like they will need to run their skins out.
