  • Extra! Extra!

    eTN 61, just out tonight, has the scoops

    The AOY voting results.
    The top 10 rankers in each event.

    the USAOYs
    the top 10 USAers in each event

    Nice!

    hints of intrigue
    one voter had Bolt at #8
    one had Blake at 9 and another had him at 10
    one voter had Farah at 1
    one had Chicherova at 10
    one had Heidler at 2

    if you remember my 'Marks Snob' rankings for wPV, I took abuse for my #1 pick, but there she sits atop the T&FN rankings! My ranking looks like this in theirs:

    1
    3
    2
    5
    4
    6

    Close enough! :wink:

    The Donovon Powell award goes to whoever spelled the US mHJ #1's first name! :twisted:
    The US w1500 #1 is NOT Jenny Simpson. Honors won ain't what they usesta be!

    Guess you'll have to subscribe to get all the gory details!

    T&FN: 1 Suhr, 2 Murer, 3 Spiegelburg, 4 Isinbayeva, 5 Feofanova, 6 Strutz
    Athletics International: 1 Murer, 2 Suhr, 3 Strutz, 4 Spiegelburg, 5 Feofanova, 6 Isinbayeva
    Marlow: 1 Suhr, 2 Spiegelburg, 3 Murer, 4 Feofanova, 5 Isinbayeva, 6 Strutz
    Jon: 1 Murer, 2 Strutz, 3 Spiegelburg, 4 Suhr, 5 Feofanova, 6 Isinbayeva

    Yours were closer to T&FN's rankings, mine were closer to AI's rankings. Very surprised T&FN ranked Isinbayeva so high. I think sometimes an athlete's past record can sway people.
