    It seems an eternity ago he posted that 10.37 (+1.0) as a 15 1/2 year old.
    Let's hope he's getting over that 3 year plateau now

    True. I don't think we have a future champion in Smelyk but good luck to him.
    Where is the Lithuanian Sakalauskas these days. I had some hopes for this (now) 29 year old.

    I
    Indeed. Never such depth. That's one reason Christophe will struģgle to medal ever again

    The German National Championships are this weekend. If the weather is right I expect to see some
    really fast times. If I can find a link to live video coverage I will post it. If anyone else finds one first
    please post it or p.m. it to me. Thanks guys.

    Germany’s women are currently outshining their male counterparts in the sprints, and in Kassel it was rising star Tatjana Pinto who again showed her vast potential, winning the women’s 100m title with 11.22 into a 2.0m/s headwind.

    However it was the 200m that really provided the fireworks on the track. Only two weeks ago a German quartet including Pinto had recorded a world-leading 42.00 over 4x100m, and now the remaining three were lining up against each other in the 200m final.

    Lisa Mayer entered the home straight in front, but was clawed back in the final metres by Gina Luckenkemper. Running into a slight 0.5m/s headwind, the 19-year-old took the title in 22.84, just 0.03 ahead of her relay partner, who improved her personal best by 0.17 in second.

    On the men’s side Julian Reus won his fourth 100m title in 10.30 (-2.3m/s), while Robin Erewa struck 200m gold in 20.60.

    While Robin Erewa and Pinto are great athletes, we do not root for them here. Every other site does that. Nothing against
    them personally but we root for the traditional european sprinters and track stars. I wish the conditions had been better. I
    was hoping to see Julian Reus improve on his 10.07 a couple of weeks ago.

    Is the french national champs next weekend? I imagine it would have to be with the Eurpean Championships and
    the Olympics quickly approaching. It will be interesting to see if Lemaitre can run a little faster. He has looked very
    average this year. Hope for the best.

    I don't root for those people. I just posted the blurb from Track and Field News because it contained info that people here are interested in. Unfortunately, those others were intertwined in, e.g., the German female relay team.

    No worries my friend. Just wansn't sure if you knew. I miss Verena Sailer. She had a p.b. of 11.03 and was a european
    champion over 100 meters. She was the fastest women in Europe before Dafne Schippers came along. I do like what
    Germany is doing in the sprints. Let's hope it continue!

    Nathaliya Pohrebnyak of the Ukraine won her national championships at 100m in 11.11 with a -2.2 wind.
    That's a very impressive performance.
    White female sprinters are really performing well, but unfortunately the men are not.

    I thought Lalova with a PB of 10.74 was considered the fastest in Europe even though she has been slower since her injury. Am I missing something, did Sailer have a faster PB??

    Lalova's 10.77 in 2004 and 10.96 in 2011 are both superior to Sailer. I wish both had been run outside Bulgaria though - they would have been received with more credibility.
    Sort of like Woronin's 10.00 - with a +2.0 mps in his home city track & only Polish officials I guess.

    Irina Privalova had a 10.77 (+0.9) in 1994.

    The "European" record is held by Christine Arron 10.73 (+2.0) from 1998.

    Prandini ran the 100m in Vancouver a few days back 11.44 into a -1.0 headwind, she then opted out of the 200m. I have run at the same track as where the Harry Jerome International is run(Swanguard Track) and it can be slow given the direction it is laid out in. The winds can bluster and change directions instantly. Plus the track surface needs to be redone.

    Well this had escaped me.
    Bruno Hortelano was born in Wollongong (near Sydney) Australia but we lost him when they moved to Canada.
    Bugger, and now the 24 year old does a big 10.06 (+1.0). We sure could have used him.

    Big pb's for both he and Taftian, both well ahead of the Germans, Kilty, Gemili, Lemaitre et al.
    I'll certainly be tracking Bruno at the Euros in 2 weeks time

    I would pick Hassan Taftian as the next sub 10 threat, well over the likes of Kilty, Teeters, etc. he is a mere 23 years old and has been in the 10.2 and below range consistently for the past two years.
