    Even though I'm more interested in track than field events, I think someone should mention the continued dominance of Jesse Williams in the high jump. He's been the top American high jumper since 2007.

    Also, Andy Turner is still struggling with Achilles problems. He may be done for, as his quack doctors have given him cortisone shots. This is nuts. Anyone who has ever researched Achilles injuries knows that cortisone shots there are incredibly risky and dramatically elevate the potential for a rupture.

    yes, oviously he is more white than black regarding the genes
    in france there are a lot of mixed people, so i know if someone is mixed or not by looking at them
    that's not the first part-black kid i see that have this kind of features
    in holland also there must be a lot of mixed people with similar physique, waterbed

    his sister kind of looks like mariah carey

    Two young british sprinters opened up their season. Andrew Robertson opened up with a 6.65 win. Adam Gemelli ran a 6.72! I really think Gemelli has the ability to get into the 6.50's. Maybe even by next year. He is so young and he still has to continue training hard. He has the tools to work with though.

    arnaldo abrantes of portugal has been without club for a while, but recently he went to the best portuguese club, benfica, where he says the training conditions are perfect, and will help him improve
    he thinks about the 2012 olympics, he already ran fast enought in the 200m to qualify

    currently he participates to the indoor national club championships , and he won his 200m serie in 21.70
    let's see what he can do in this competition

    The british are coming. The british are coming. The youngsters keep putting up great times. Daniel Talbot ran a european leading 21.17 in the 200 meters. Outstanding time.

    you see often half whites half from dutch antilles, and the white women that hates to be white always doesn't understand why the child looks nearly always close to full blood whites.And then they often mention the curly hair( curly just as in white people) and call that you see he is black lol.They never undertand that from dutch natilles are on average like 70% black and the ones that have like 40% or more white admixture are often the border to when they get a child with a dutch to see anything black in the offspring.What I always find funny is that afro-kinky hair of like 20 inches are seen as a black trait when in fact most black africans when they shave their head becuase of the curls being so tighly curled in volume in grows only like 0.5 inch a year and when long often breaks, from dutch antilles like 5 and white people 10 inch a year.

    A hitherto unknown Austrian ran a 3:38 indoor 1500. He's just 22, so maybe this bodes well for his futurel

    If it's at all possible to streem the Russian Winter IAAF Permit Meeting, I hope someone can find the link. It's February 5. Among others, Guliyev and Sakalauskas will run the 60 (against Dwain Chambers). Borzakovsky and Kszczot will duel in the 600 along with several Kenyans. And the women's side will be loaded, as always, as Russian women are such strong athletes.

    Scottish sprinter Richard Kilty ran a 6.61 60m in Birmingham today.
    Perhaps this will be a break through season for him.

    Richard Kilty is in the shape of his life. From what I've heard, he has been warm weather training in the southwest. His coach is Linford Christie and he is in a big training group that includes MLF among others. The warm weather training in the U.S. is obviously paying off. What a great start to the season!

    I think Pozzi ran 7.58 in the heats, but can't confirm.
    Anyway, looks like he will give Britain another top short hurdler to go along with Andrew Turner.

    It wouldn't allow me to paste the results, but K ran a fine 1:15.26 for the win, Borzo followed at 1:16.08 and the Kenyans were well beaten (one was over 1:18).
