  • Euro U18s

    Under way in Győr. Live results here.

    New world youth bests for Ukraine's Myhaylo Kokhan in the boys' 5kg hammer (87.82) and Spain's María Vicente in the girls' heptathlon (6221). Norway's Pål Haugen Lillefosse (better known for breaking Mondo's age-13 pole vault world best in 2015) won bronze in the 100 with 10.72! He's the favorite for the pole vault final tomorrow.

    Sophie O'Sullivan (Sonia's daughter) just took silver in the 800. There have been other kids with familiar last names competing as well, including Larissa Iapichino (the daughter of Fiona May and Gianni Iapichino) in the LJ.

        There's a Privalova in the wTJ.

        By the way, five medals for Germany so far, not one of them in the throws, that's just weird and a bit disturbing.

          OTOH Poland has won four medals, all of them in the men's throws.

            Vicente is also up for an interesting double. She'll be a strong medal contender in tomorrow's TJ final, where she is no. 2 on the year lists.

                Nesterenko was even more ridiculous as an U18, and he never really progressed from there. So was Gill, and his improvement has been pretty moderate.

                OTOH, the previous U18 HT record holder Bence Halasz is already arguably the third best in the world at the age of 21.

                  Vicente and Lillefosse both won golds, and with impressive results, too - 13.95 and 5.46, respectively. Also Jessica Kahara of Finland won two medals in one evening today, first taking bronze in the TJ, and then silver in the HJ, which immediately followed the first final. She set PBs in both events, too.

                  Wojciech Marok was going for an even tougher double, competing in SP and DT at the same time on Friday. The two finals were starting just 5 minutes apart and taking place at opposite ends of the stadium! It didn't quite work out, though, as he had 3 fouls in the SP and finished 4th in the DT.

                    British middle distance looks as healthy as ever. Three golds and a silver from the four races.

                    Max Burgin front running a 1.47 36 PB (52.6/54.6) - Effectively a time trial, nobody was ever closer than 3 or 4 metres. Doesnt break his age 15 record as he just turned 16. Keely Hodgkinson, also 16, won the 800 in 2.04.8, even splitting the race including a 29.6 final 200. Earlier thus year she negative split a 2.04.2. Another 16 year old, Kane Elliott, used his fast finish to win the mens 1500.

                    Vicente is a huge talent - Her LJ, TJ, Hep & Hurdles were all championship records. 200 wasnt half bad either.

                      Imagine the hep at the ECs in four years.
                      Maria Vicente, Alina Shukh, Sarah Lagger, Geraldine Ruckstuhl, and Thiam will still only be 28 by then.

                        Ireland's Sarah Healy (dob 13 Feb 2001) had a relatively relaxed double 1500/3000 victory, both in meet record times, I think.

                        Elsewhere, she has run 2:02.76, 4:09.25 this outdoor season, and ran 9:10.43 indoor.

                        Good article on her, here:
