  • The season not quite finished. [Asian Games]

    Ogunode wins the Asian Games 100m in 9.93, equal 5th this year with Su of China 2nd in 10.10.
    Masrahi won the 400m in 44.46 just outside his Lausanne best this year.

    That should move Ogunode up a spot or three on the combo sprinters list.

      I make his extra points a new combi total of 3633, one point ahead of Walter Dix's score and thus a leap to 11 th position

          It looks like Eversport has not put up highlights yet, but is showing the whole games live at eversport.tv
          A Japanese TV station has video on youtube of the 100m sprint races here:

          They seem to have atleast semi and finals, maybe even all the rounds, I can't tell

            The Men's decath is now 8 events in with some scope for NRs.

            After Day 1:
            L. Andreev UZB 4215
            A. Nakamura JPN 4123
            K. Ushiro JPN 4073
            D. Karpov KAZ 3987

            After 8 events:
            L. Andreev UZB 6724 (10.96w, 7.28, 15.75 PR, 1.99PB, 49.59PR, 14.95PR, 43.85, 5.00
            K. Ushiro JPN 6571 (11.10w, 7.08, 14.80, 2.02, 50.25, 15.16, 48.98, 4.70,
            D. Karpov KAZ 6530
            A. Nakamura JPN 6374

            On PRs Ushiro is a decent chance to take down his NR again (8308 from June this year, he also broke it in April with 8143). Andreev's chasing 8445 NR (but with a 19m lower Jav PR than Ushiro!)

              That's the same Andreev who was in the PV Oly final in '08, right?

                I believe so: http://www.iaaf.org/athletes/uzbekis...andreev-171405. Coming in, he had a weird mix of event PRs from 2002 and 2013 for most Decath events. The PV was exception - 5.70 in 2009.

                Looks like Ushiro will pick up 120pts in Jav (currently 68.09 to 60.05 with Andreev left to throw). 5.5m PR for Andreev!

                  L. Andreev UZB 7879 (10.96w, 7.28, 15.75 PR, 1.99PB, 49.59PR, 14.95PR, 43.85, 5.00, 60.05PR, 5.26.72)
                  A. Nakamura JPN 7828 (finished with 4.16.53 to almost grab silver, moving from 5th after 9th event!)
                  D. Karpov KAZ 7749

                  Andreev has now taken silver at 3 consecutive Asian Games - two in PV, one in Dec

                      ogunode completes double by winning 200.

                      adekoya also doubles in both flat and hurdles 400.

                      what happened in the m800 final? 3 DQs?????

                        And all three from first lap violations? Yikes! Akkar finishes fourth and gets the Gold medal. Wow. I wonder if it's on a video link somewhere.

                            one was DQ for pushing/impeding?

                            they are still appealing the decision.

                              Here is the youtube link

                              https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCuB0tb8e5s

                              It looks to me that Saudi Arabia’s Abdulaziz Ladan Mohammed got shafted by the officials. As they crossed the 400m mark it looks like Mohammed had his heel clipped from the runner behind him and as he tripped/stumbled, he put his hand out and appears to have lightly touched (definitely not pushed as far as I could tell) the runner in front of him. There was certainly no impeding of the runner he touched and I doubt that runner even knew if he had been touched as it is possible Mohammed just touched the runners bib.

                              I also looked at the crossover points for the alleged lane violations of Musaeb Balla and Abraham Rotich. I couldn't see anything so if those violations happened they must have been incredibly marginal.
