  • Jessica Peris looking like she's having a real crack at following in Mum's CG footsteps. PBs of 11.63 & 23.31 in Brisbane today.

    • Decent Heptathlon (by Aussie standards) at NSW champs on weekend:

      Celeste Mucci (18 years old) 5870 (new U20 NR)
      (13.58, 1.70, 11.70, 24.78PR, 6.48w, 42.32PR, 2:28.2 PR)
      Alysha Burnett (20yo) 5758
      Sophie Stanwell 5661
      Tori West 5570
      Andrea Thompson (19yo) 5366

      Mucci passes Burnett to have highest Aussie score for the year (Burnett went 5817 in March).

          17yo Ash Moloney had a good comp in the U20 event too - 7365 including a 10.79 100m, 7.17 LJ & 14.30 110H. His technical events aren't too bad for a kid either.

          Also in the meet 33yo former ACT steeple star Marnie Ponton won the 5k in 16-02 from Blundell. Be interesting to see her in the Zatopek 10 next week.

            • Browning moves to =#10 all-time Aussie with that run.

              Wells' performances continue to hint that perhaps she's been doing the wrong event for the past decade...

                Yes - she went up for a week's training with guru Bourne. Anang was well back in the field. Going to be interesting with CG selection in this event - esp if team size stays small. Wells could end up doing the event if we only take 2 since she will of course qualify in 400H though I think both finals are on the same night?

                • Just checked IAAF profile, and Pearson's 100 PR is 11.14 from 2007!!
                  So 10 years later, she runs 11.17---early in the summer season!!

                  Shocked?
                  Unexpected?

                  Aussie experts, what do you think??

                    Well, that's what people said 10 years ago about her 400H compared to her LJ!

                    I believe that her talent is unfortunately evenly split between the two events. However, I think she would be happier to have that talent concentrated in just one event so she could be either a 7m LJer and a 65s 400Her or a 53s 400Her and a 5m LJer.

                    That would be better than where she is now - solid but unspectacular in both events. Still maybe Gazza might work some magick. Fingers crossed.

                    • Given that Lauren has talked about retiring after the CG, it wouldn't surprise me to see her abandoning the hurdles and trying the LJ for a couple of years to try and attain her aim of making an Olympic final. Maybe she'll even relocate up to the Bourne-factory.

                      Sally is pretty consistent around the 11.2 mark for 100m when she's fit and healthy, so most of us probably aren't surprised when she clocks 11.1 in good conditions.

                      • Good race from Pearson but she's handled domestic fields since she was a kid so no massive surprise there. I think her knee lift could be a little better, seems to be rushing it a bit compared to previous years but she's looking on track.

                        Will Pearson do the double? The 100m is first which is a shame as you'd like to think she could do her specialist first and then go all out in the 100m. That said, she's enough time to recover and I think 12.6 should be enough to win.

                        Her greatest challengers are likely to come from those racing indoors I guess, Philip and Henry named for ENG, so interesting to see who from JAM make it down there to race. A decent medal chance for Pearson if she can run a 11.1 in rounds.

                        I'm with El Toro and Wells talent evening placed along both events. While brutal, maybe the multis could have been in the mix.

                          She has a heptathlon best of 5174 from 2007 and a score of 5457 based on PBs. Weak throws and 200m hold her back. I fear we would see a similar result here with maybe a 60xx - solid but not great.

                            Those pesky throws!

                              Gets Aussie hepathletes every time!

                              Actually, I have to correct her score. I used the IAAF profile but AA has the following higher score from 2006:
                              5,276
                              (14.33 +1.4,1.61m,8.73m,24.66 -0.6,6.14m +0.7,32.60m,2.20.77)
