            I know Gateshead has tradition and enthusiastic fans, but why do we have have a meeting there? The weather is frequently poor and the prevailing wind is a headwind!

              for some trange reason (well my kind of ex live there) i went to this meeting last year. NEVER AGAIN it was the most miserable afternoon of my life.

              they have to be seen to have meetings in different parts of the country but not at the expense of having a shit, meeting every year. they can't even be bothered to put in pace makers to make race fast so it all becomes completely pointless

              but at least we have colin jackson spouting wisdom, apparently jess won't be able to compete in hep at both europeans and commonwealths next year even though they are 2 months apart :roll:

                The weather must be awful. The marks make it look like everyone is in slow motion!

                  the weather's not that bad, it's windy and they had a shower a few minutes ago but that is no excuse for a 3.11 first km in a 3k race with 2 world champions in it !!!

                    He who pays the piper calls the tunes Garry Hill, and I know that. So Fuck You and don't tell me how to act.

                    It's clear what obtains between certain posters and yourself, If its that they have had subscriptions to your magazine since the year of Christ or they are a part of fraternal circles I don't know but don't come acting like a purist piece of shit.

                    I can't believe you endorse this rubbish behavior and call yourself a respected editor. SO CURRUPT!!!!!! Paul Henry wants none of this so Fuck You Again, you can't edit the power of the internet!!!!!

                      Women's 200m was run into a 3.4m/s headwind!

                      I don't know why they always insist on holding so many meets in the North of England. Every GBR v. RUS v. USA international in Glasgow was held in wet weather, the last two Gateshead meets have been ruined by weather (wet, wind or wind and rain) and Sheffield in 2007 was an absolute wash-out.
