No I want to be suspicious of female middle distance athletes from a country with a very recent history of doping, entirely reasonable to me. This is entirely different from being suspicious of athletes merely because of their nationality.
I agree with this point completely. Federations need to be held more accountable.
My views on Russian Athletics would probably get me banned permanently from the board to I'll keep quiet.
Regarding broadcasting of the Diamond League. I assume BBC have the full UK rights which means Eurosport(British, International) lost out? I've been without Eurosport coverage since 2007 thanks to what was Chorus. I can view the 100m etc. on Youtube. Not the same though.
Am I missing out badly in terms of coverage? Do BBC do it justice and is that Tim Hutchins of Eurosport I heard on one commentary last week? I know he was doing the worldwide output with Stuart Storey the last few years.
BBC are covering the entire DL series on BBC3 or on the red button, if you have access.
Hutchings was commentating the other night with Steve Cram. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad.
It's tough to beat tim and martin on eurosport, it's a pity they don't have much athletics this season.
Anyone know any streams or the like that will be showing the world juniors?
Not sure if this stream works but try it later
Think this has been restricted to Canada only have seen that link going around and alot of the lads are complaining about this.
Seems to be no coverage outside Canada. Also whats the story with the IAAF site being so slow nearly three hours after the Irish lads were running and still no results from today at all
Yes looks like it is restricted to Canada sorry
For shame no results in yet of the 1,500m, Mc Bearty looks to be in a though heat he is the lowest on time but the other irish lad has an outside chance might need to do pb
Anyone know if the Monaco Diamond League meet is being shown on TV tonight ?
It's available on the BBC red button from 7-9pm.
Andrew Wheating 3.30.9 in the 1500
Ryan Gregson (only 20) runs 3.31.06!!!!!!
Any Irish in action in Monaco tonight?
That's one way of putting it!
