    Two bits of Aussie news (both currently on front page):

    Sally Pearson, while recovered from her fractured risk from last season, is set to miss the entire Australian domestic season due to an achilles problem. One report indicated she may not be back until July.

    Craig Mottram has declared himself not retired, and he's set to run the London Marathon with the aim of securing Olympic qualification. It would be his 5th Olympics (he's competed 4 times in 5000m).

      It was reported that she did her calf/achilles before the Rome fall, which is why she tried to clear the hurdle so awkwardly, leading to the broken wrist. Wasn't really covered again, but I guess the wrist trumped any other kind of injury given the speed and impact of it.

      She seems different in her media reports, she was always so confident, cocky for some, whereas now she's much more open about the the loss of confidence and the challenge that she faces to win or medal again.

      I wonder if the June time is for hurdling or if it is for any kind of racing. She opened her domestic season so well in Canberra last year and then had a good hurdles final at the AUS Champs.

      She got a medal in 2013 with less than ideal preparation so I wouldn't rule her out just yet.

        The Pearson reports indicate she was back in full sprint training before Christmas, so the achilles must have reinjured itself. It is concerning as she ages, but you're right that she's been very good at racing underprepared before...

          The list of OG qualifiers has grown after this weekend's ACT state championships, with Joshua Clarke (10.15 - 5th Aussie all-time), Alex Hartmann (20.45, =10th Aussie all time), Ella Nelson (22.84, =10th Aussie all-time) and Brooke Stratton (6.79 - 4th Aussie all-time) joining Morgan Mitchell, who ran 52.19 in her 400 last night, her second qualifier in a week. It'll be nice to see a few sprinters in Rio and maybe even a men's 4x100 team if Stubbs, Gamble, Ross, Hale and others can step it up over the coming months.

            Talking of Pearson, here is an interesting clip of Pam Kilborn (spelled Kilbourne in clip) in the early days of the 100m hurdles + she does a race review. go to 05:26 for race

              Watched the whole 53 minutes. An interesting record of the 1969 Hawaii meet where Lindgren reminded Pre that he was still a high schooler

                Eloise Wellings ran 1:09:29 for 3rd in the Marugame 1/2 marathon today. I think that makes her #7 performer, #10 performance on AUS a-t list.

                    Damien Birkenhead also got his qualifier in Christchurch today, throwing 20.80 in the shot. Forum fave Jacko Gill threw a 20.83 PB at the same meet.

                      Birkenhead jumps to #3 all-time Aussie with that PB. Nice work for the 22year old. He's progressed well each year since 2012 (18.87, 19.27, 19.69, 20.40 and now this one month into 2016).

                      McDonald is 57th Aussie under 4mins I believe.

                        Thanks for posting the link.
                        Watched the whole film.
                        Some great names competing in the meet and how casual was the surroundings.

                          Morgan McDonald (SO Wisconsin) ran 3:57 last week; today he hit 7:52.09.

                          Not a NR but pretty far up the list I would think.

                            Damien Birkenhead improved his shot PB out to 21.21 today in Hobart, moving him up to #2 Aussie all-time.

                              ABC radio national mentioned this today in their main bulletin, including the all time place. Was that your work?
