    Mucci was second 12.98, little Abbey Taddeo was 3rd in 13.06
    ....... leaving the model, dancer Michelle Jenneke to 4th - if this doesn't make her decide to get her ass into gear and not compromise her athletics nothing will. This is her only chance for the Olympics, regardless of what she wants to do after that.
    But when Brianna Beahan hits form there'll be 5 Aussies capable of sub 13.

    Never have we had such depth - great for helping field a relay team, even if they aren't 11.14 sprinters like Sally Pearson was. They are still tough and won't weaken over 100.
    Mucci did recently break 11.50 though so, again, heptathlete strength seems a boon when you put aside the multi and concentrate on maybe two events.

    so far early this season for 100 flat:
    Beahan 11.45, Mucci 11.47, Taddeo 11.63, Clay 12.03 (how? after that 12.72 hurdles?), Jenneke no 100 time yet

    Mucci is very talented not to mention a very beautiful lady. I love watching australian mens and womens track & field athletes.

    I noticed Jack Hale ran a 10.34 a couple of days ago. Very sad as he seems to be regressing. Hope he just had a couple of off races and that he is still in good shape in this olympic year.

    Note ...kranz has to perform at the Europeans .....only then can he be considered real quality ......when non Germans are around him ....it should be interesting .....good to see obratzsov back .....and Jacobs and van Jool are very competitive .....for me the euros over 60 are wide open in the men’s .......whereas in the women’s it’s Poland vs England

    i’ve had the pleasure of seeing Jewell run (and long jump) in person at the Arkansas high school Meet of Champs. he was simply in a league of his own there, despite coming from a small school. despite being far and away the fastest kid in the state, he ended up running track at a non-Division-One university. “weird,” huh? it’s good to see him continuing to run, although it looks like he pulled his hammy in the final (see video below). Jewell and Webb beat some big names to go 1-2 at this meet.

    I agree. I have never seen either of these young sprinters until now. I'm very impressed. Not only is their athletecism elite but they don't panick under the spot lights. Excellent showing by both of them. Hope Jewell only has a minor injury.

    Marybeth (Sant) Price ran in the women’s 60m (see video below), and she had a fine showing. she equaled her season best (7.28) in a race where she led for 55 meters before getting nipped at the line in a very close finish to ultimately take third. her start is explosive, but she struggled to open up to the higher gear in this particular race. good to see her still running and putting up nice performances against some of the world’s elite sprinters.

    I wouldn't be too concerned yet. They are trying to step carefully regards qualifying for the Olympics. Many meets to go yet and another in the ACT (Canberra).
    Australian Championships in Sydney (I'll be there) 12th April so 7 weeks to go yet

    I will admit to enjoying Felix's running style and she is not a juiced up looking negro female sprinter BUT Price is so tiny and slender in comparison to the other three. She is still struggling to find her form of pre injury, 7.28 is slow in todays world. In many views of the race it looks like Price almost shutdown(panic?) with 5m to go. Just my observation.

    yes, she's so small it's crazy.
    I have lots of respect for Felix' ability and her attitude ... her minister dad taught her respect and humility early apparently ... that "gifts" aren't something to be proud and arrogant about but thankful for. I liked that.

    Thanks for the videos Jimmy.

    I don’t know if he has been mentioned. KC Lightfoot USA PV 6.00m. He is only 21. Actually about a dozen or so hours younger than Mondo Duplantis. The PV looks to be the best it’s ever been. Mondo has some future competition to push heights even higher.

    Germany currently has 2 of the top 5 fastest sprinters over 60 meters in all of Europe! Kranz and Wagner but there is alot of other young sprinters I am keeping a close eye on. One in particular
    is 22 year old Marvin Schulte. He is a tall lean sprinting machine over 60 & 100 meters. His 200 meter times are not that great as he lacks speed endurance & stamina at that distance. Regardless
    this kid ran a personal best times in the 100 meters of 10.18 wind legal as a 20 year old in 2019 and he also ran a 10.12 with 2.1 wind so it was barely over the wind legal amount of 2.0! So Covid
    killed everyones summer last year. Schulte reminds me a little of Lemaitre with his long strides although not as talented. He has run 6.64 indoors this year. I just have a feeling that this kid could
    be special over 100 meters in the next few years. We will see if I'm right or not. German Sprinting is really run to watch with so many talented young sprinters! :)
