    Yes, both Georgias made the w800 final. G. Griffith had the 3rd best semi-final and PB time of 2:04.00 and G. Wassall had the 5th best semi-final time of 2:04.84.

      6 PBs in one Decath is a tremendous effort. Throwing 5m below his DT PB has gotta sting. I hope it drives him on to quickly become a 8000+ senior man. Natural strength improvements should hopefully see him replicate at least those distances with the senior implements. And he hurdles well. All is promising.

      Stein vs Dubler for years to come?

        It is that time of the year when Aussie journalists notice how badly our sport is administered. Finally the right guy's head might be on the chopping block (fingers crossed):

              She was a really big talent as a youngster (4.40 as 16 years old is a very good mark, and indeed it's an age best for 16 years girls) but failed to deliver. Now 20, her best is from 2 years ago (4.50) so in 4 years she went from 4.40 to... 4.33 this year. A shame but I wish her the best in this new career.

                Being away from home, I missed this breakthrough effort from young (18) Aussie HJer (2.29m): http://www.smh.com.au/sport/athletic...22-11a0id.html

                It'd be great to have breakthroughs on both the men's and women's versions of this event.

                    True, You also got 18 year old Eleanor Patterson at 1.94. A huge talent!
                    How tall might Joel Baden be? Around 6-1?. He is certainly aggressive into the take-off.

                    • That's what I was alluding to Per. Great to have high end juniors at the same time on both sides. Let's hope they both progress.

                      • Speaking of promising juniors, this week the Australian All-Schools titles in Adelaide features a high-quality field in the under-18s boys' 100m, with Jack Hale (pb 10.42, new u-18 NR), Rohan Browning (pb 10.47, new NSW u-18 rec, 10.37w), Trae Williams (pb 10.51, 3rd 2014 World Youth Olympics) and Jordan Shelley (pb 10.67) all entered.

                        • Hale, just 16 years old, ran an astonishing 10.13 today in Adelaide with a +3.4 wind. Minutes earlier, 14 year old James Gallaugher ran 10.58 with a +2.2 wind. Finals were run in the back straight today.

                          • In the same under-18s race, 17 year old Rohan Browning ran 10.18 and Trae Williams 10.33.

                            • Adjusted times:
                              Hale 10.13 +3.4 = 10.29 0.0
                              Gallaugher 10.58 +2.2 = 10.70 0.0
                              Browning 10.18 +3.4 = 10.34 0.0
                              Williams 10.33 +3.4 = 10.49 0.0

                              Best for 16 year old is the 10.19 0.5 by Japanese star, Yoshihide Kiryu on 3 November 12

                              • Hale has also eclipsed the best all-conditions 100 by a 16yo (Quincy Watts at 10.17w nearly three decades ago). Interesting to see whether he and Browning feature at open level this season.
