    Ok it's a new year and time to start the track talk and discussion along with results for 2022. Here
    is a good article on Femke Bol who has potential to break the hurdles world recod like Warholm did
    last year. Femke Bol is just a once in a lifetime talent. I hope she continues to show the Europe and
    the World what she can do! Bol won the bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics!

    Aiden Murphy, the young Australian sprint find, matched his 200m PB, running a 20.64 this weekend.

    I'm gonna make a prediction for a new sprinter to keep a close eye on. Simon Hansen is only 23 years of age and he runs for Denmark. Last year he
    set new personal bests of 10.24 and 20.49. Both times were wind legal and the 200 meters was run into a slight negative wind. Hansen shows great
    speed endurance and he is still young enough to make some major break throughs. One to watch in 2022.

    Excellent season opener. He would have easily broke his p.b. with no wind or a positive wind under the limit. I like tall sprinters and with we would see more tall guys
    try out for the sprints. They just eat up the track with their stride length and they can make up for the slower starts on average.

    Tiann Whelpton ran a legal 10.18 (1.9w) yesterday, setting a new PB, and moving him to =4th NZ all-time.
    At the same meet, Zoe Hobbs rans a wind-aided 11.14 (2.2) 100m.
    Very good early season results from New Zealand!

    Hobbs 11.14 wind aided run equates to 11.25ish

    Yes this is great to see. We finally have some young rising New Zealand Sprinters to watch. Australia has always gotten most of the glory due to better talent
    overall. I like to root for both countries. Hopefully we can get some videos of both races. Exciting times down under with the exception the governments and
    how they are treating the people.

    Mitrevski ran another 100m, and won in a good time of 10.21 (1.0w).
    He's looking like a contender for a spot on the Aussie 4x100m relay.
    And still waiting to see if his long jumping will improve as well.
