  • Padua Meeting: Fraser got it (10.98) Niyonsaba is back

    Today there was a decent meeting in Padua. Sprint races were VERY slow. Stowers won the hurdles running a pedestrian 13.30 but SAFP dominated the 100 running a very fast 10.98, think the second just got 11.42. The race is on Youtube. The other important result is the return of Francine Niyonsaba who dominated the 800m running 1.59.62, a 9 seconds (!) season best. She seems to be back. Other good result was Tamberi 2.30 in the high jump (very good attempts at 2.34).

    m100 Ogunode 10.07 Rodgers 10.12 Carter only third, 10.34 (wind -1.1), the first two were very fast.

    m400 Renny Quow 45.99
    m800 Gakeme over Benedetti (1.46.53 to 55)
    w1500 Sheila Reid (4.07) over Mercy Cherono
    w100hs Stowers 13.29 (almost 1 second slower than her pr!)
    m400hs Gibson 48.73
    m110hs Milan Ristic 13.93
    wSP Dubistkaia 17.84
    mJT Bohdan 77.88 over world youth record holder Toledo, Sirmais only 71m... a big talent who seems to be losing himself.
    mLJ Polyansky 7.85
    wLJ Pidluhzhnaya 6.53

    Thanks for posting. I knew there was a meet in Italy today but did not know where (was not listed on this site that I could find) in Italy nor where results could be found.

    Berlin had 61 F/16 C and cloudy. Any idea what the conditions for this meet were?

      Another head wind race, but not enough (-0.8) to indicate she can break 10.7 this year, which is I'm sure the only reason she is running still. It might be best for her to shut down and do what is necessary to go for it next season.

        Exactly, she is not for sub 10.7, perhaps with a miracle +2.0 wind but it is a lot of luck hehe

          Sprint races are usually slow in Padua (in recent years I mean), don't know if their track is just slow or what. Conditions were good despite head wind.
          SAFP was extraordinary and what a margin that was, I think this is worth 10.80 on any other track.

          Niyonsaba was very happy after the race.

          I like Rovereto meeting more (this Tuesday) especially since they removed old six-lane track.

            Wind in Stowers' race was -2.7, -1.6 in M 110H.

            Pace was set at 57.81 in Nyonsaba's race.

            The meet saw the return of Yelizaveta Bryzgina from a 2-year suspension; she ran 12.22 in 100 (-0.8).

            3rd in the 800 was Iguider, a PB 1:46.67, 7th Robby Andrews, 1:47.39. There were 14 starters, including the non-finishing pacemaker.

            BTW, there is a new feature on tilastopaja: in the result for an athlete, just before the "country" column, there may be a blue- or red-background rectangle showing "D" plus a number of years/months. For example, for Bryzgina, it is red, with "D 2y"; for Shelly-Ann, it's blue, and "D 6m". Javelin thrower Roberto Bertolini has a blue "D 1m". I haven't found a key to these annotations, but it looks as though the red ones are for "serious" PEDs, the blue ones perhaps for a stimulant.

              I disagree. People in that race was almost 0.5 slower than prs. In good conditions Carter for example is a 10.0 sprint. Here he ran 10.30.
              The weather was good, but the track is old (I heard this is the last year they are competing there, moving to another track next year) and the headwind was probably very annoying. How could Stowers run that slow? Italian champ. Tessaro, a 13.08 hurdler this year, hardly broke 14! It's clear those times are worth a lot more.

                Then, why are the runners competing in this track? Really stupid

                  True, it should be the last year indeed. A old and completely inadequate track, completely not conducting to fast times. Unfortunately in Italy the majority of the tracks are awful.

                    When people are wowed by great times, they do not always realize how the track conditions contribute. A lot of people will get lifetime PRs in Beijing never to be repeated. Conversely, the second-tier tracks are noticeably slower; in Gatlin's first year+ returning people where saying how slow he was and how he would not return to the top, but he was paying a penalty of 0.10 or more for those second-tier track surfaces.

                    SAFP's race illustrates (please, watch the video cited below my post) the effects of tracks etc., as she cleaned the clock of several really quality competitors (remember what Morrison did not the relay - SAFP had put her away here in the first second or two, but continued lengthening her lead the whole way).

                    On a related note, someone had posted that Thompson was still in school (UTech). I remember someone like toyracer or DentyCracker commenting about how SAFP had been in school for her early career and when finally done saying that she could now focus more fully on track -- she did ok in that early career but has done even better since, so Thompson might really be her heir apparent.
