  • 7/6 in Lausanne

    Lots of biggies competing, such as El G and many others. Any predictions ?

    Re: 7/6 in Lausanne

    Thanks for asking!

    I’ll go with
    Men
    100 - Powell over Zakari – 10.08
    200 – Buckland 20.20
    400 – Time for Francique to wake up again – 44.80
    800 – Sepeng (Bucher back?) – 1:44.0
    1500 – Wanna go with El G, but Heshco is due – 3:32 (Stember there so close to OT?)
    St & 5K – I’m going with a northernish-easternish African – time: fast!
    110H – AJ (my man) 13.10
    400H – Sanchez rises as from a slumber – 47.80!
    PV – Markov on a hunch – Hysong is in there – 19’2.314956"
    LJ – I like Lamela, but the Commie, I mean Russki Shkurlatov will win – 27’3
    JT – Makarov – 284'

    Women
    100 – Nestor! 11.10
    400 – Pick-a-Russian, Kotly in 50.10
    800 – daring, but I’ll risk a quid on Mutola
    1500 – Yeg – Yuck 4:00
    100H – Alozie – 12.55
    HJ – The new Big Event – Sles over Cloete! 6’8
    TJ – Lebed 50 again – but Aldama and Mbango coming on.

      Got the Jav right but Long Jump, not so much.

      and Ennis-London just nipped Alozie.

      good call here:
      1 Francique Alleyne GRN 44.75

        The women's 110H look to be one of the most competitive event going. We could see a blanket finish with 4 or 5 hurdlers around 12.5 or faster in Athens.

          Re: 7/6 in Lausanne

          another good call:
          1 Powell Asafa JAM 10.00
          2 Obikwelu Francis POR 10.02
          3 Zakari Aziz GHA 10.13

          Powell is threatening!

          and then:
          1 Johnson Allen USA 13.05
          and
          1 Kotlyarova Olga RUS 50.09
          and
          1 Yegorova Olga RUS 4:01.41

            anyone have trouble getting results off the meet site (not iaaf site). I get redirected to an accreditation page ... I'm on a mac, too, if that matters.

              well here's a surprise

              1 Jawher Mushir Salim BRN 13:02.47
              2 Wendimu Mulugeta ETH 13:02.78
              3 Abate Abiyote ETH 13:03.33
              4 Limo Richard KEN 13:05.12
              5 Hassan Abdullah Ahmad QAT 13:05.55

              I hate to admit it, but I've never heard of the winner. Brunei is quite the comer - is he really Bruneian?

                Go to http://www.athletissima.ch/content/view ... isciplines

                and click on results. I've had no problems.

                  Sanchez - 47.86 - finally!



                  hmmm - Arron in 11.01, curiouser and curiouser in the women's 100


                  this is what the Eurosport wonk wrote:

                  "Women's 100m - French beauty Christine Arron needs a few strides to get over her trademark mediocre start but once she gets going, she is virtually unbeatable!!! ARRON WINS IN 11.01!!! In an era of muscle masses, it's so nice to see a female sprinter like Arron, who could easily steal her countrywoman Marie Jose Perec's nickname 'the Gazelle'. Not the best of starters, Arron is the best relay anchor leg in the world, because she gets a running start!"

                  I'm guessing this sort of thing wouldn't fly here, or would it?


                  Aha - Sles beats Cloete in the HJ - exactly on cue. And the height is 2.04, which, pursuant to our earlier discussions, I'm not even going to try to convert, but scroll on up there to the top and see what I predicted - I'm betting it's close.

                    from Eurosport

                    "El Guerrouj is now on his final 300m with a massive lead over the field...but he suddenly looks to be slowing down and Kenya's national champion is hunting him down!!! It's very close, VERY CLOSE!!! El Guerrouj is fighting, he's not giving up like in Rome...he crosses the line in 3:32.21 for one of his closest victories ever!!!"

                    Yay for El G!

                        Yet El G definitely did not have his last lap kick of old. If he doesn't recover by the time of the Olympic Games, this is going to really shake things up.

                        Now Mutola has been defeated tonight for the first time in almost two years!

                          High five to Frank Fredericks, taking the 200 in 20.21.
