  • Wattenscheid 2009

    Ariane Friedrich needed all of her three attempts over 1.99m to hold off Gordeeva, then decided not to take a chance as the important stages of training are underway and close the competition.

    Verena Sailer (11.11) beat Sherone Simpson (11.12) in the 100, wind was +2.6 though, promising time for the German nonetheless. Good to see Simpson back too.

    In another wind aided race (+2.3), Kim Collins takes the final in 10.08, Mark Jelks 10.09, Obikwelu 3rd, Martin Keller 10.15

    Nadine Kleinert 19.68

    Good run by the German men's relay team, too - 38.40 without serious opposition. And Harting decided to prove the TFN prediction team wrong by throwing 68.10 8-)

      The women's relay was arguably even better (43.12) considering that they still run with Wagner on first position. They took the EL back from the Brits.

        Sherone Simpson is getting back in form, I hope JAAA will add her to the squad for at least the relay. She is getting better each day and it's two weeks to Berlin.

          I guess Lolo Jones is lacking confidence, once again she spiked the top of the last hurdle. I hope she can recompose herself and get the results that she deserves.

            Even if she did, that made little difference, as she was already behind the top two before then. She's very inconsistent these days - she runs either 12.50 or 12.90.

              why of why are they insistin gwith putting Wagner on the first leg? She's always done the straight, her strength is a rolling start, not a start from blocks, and she's 5'10" tall, she's never going to be a great bedn runner :?

              If she were on last and Sailer on first it will be much faster.

                Interesting, in the 100 hts, Simpson ran 11.41 to Sailer's 11.44 (-0.4) ahead of Anim 11.60. The young Kwadwo ran 11.73 while Oyepitan was 7th in 11.81, not qualifying. In ht 2 Kwakye was 4th in 11.79, not qualifying.

                Behind VS & SS in the fianl were Anim 11.36, Wagner 11.38 & Mollinger 11.40. Kwadwo was 8th in 11.58 so presumably ownt be selected for the relay in Berlin as she'd hoped.

                The 400m result makes the 4x4 interesting, as Tilgner was only 8th in 53.88 :shock: behind 6 other Germans. The 4x4 team should now be Nwachukwu (who ran the 200 in 23.70) Hoffman, Kohlmann (52.43 here) & Esther Cremer.

                  A video of Sailer's race can be found here:

                  What I like is the camaraderie amongst the women, all genuinely happy with Sailer's time/run.

                    The problem is that Sailer has problem with her Achilles tendon, so she wants to get out of the bend. But on leichtathletik.de we all pretty much agree that it would be wiser to put her on 2nd and Möllinger or Schorr on 1st with Wagner returning to 4th spot.
                    Considering the excellent individual times, 43.12 is too slow. Schielke, Paschke, Rockmeier and Wagner had quite exactly the same individual times in Munich 2002 but ran 6 tenths faster than today's relay :!: :!: :!:

                      In 200 Charles Clark was on the inside of Kim Collins and he passed him around the corner, with a five meters lead he just stop at the top of the straight.
                      I hope everything is fine with him.
