Helsinki 2005


Recommended Posts

the next track season is meaningless, most major athletes take the year off

You are probably right, but for the German athletes the next year is very important. As you can see at the medals table the German athletes are very weak on the global stage. So we have to win your medals here on European level at the E-Ch next year in Sweden.

Den 6-13 augusti 2006 hålls de 19:e Europamästerskapen i friidrott i Göteborg

Very sad, but I remember that in the 70s and 80s, the GDR was a real super power to be dealt with in athletics, especially their women; where are all the Marita Koch, Mariles Gohr, and Heike Dretchlers gone?

Was it all steroids??

Germany has basically disapeared as a power in the world of athletics.  :(

New Zealands beatrice faumuania finishes 4th in the womens discus, only half a meter off the bronze medal. This was here second best performance at a world champs after winning gold in athens in 1997. A good result for new zealand and Valerie Vili will be competing in the shot put later on and she also should do very well

Tyler Christopher should bring home Canada's first medal of the games (that count) today in the 400m.  He posted the fasted qualifying time, but he's sandwiched between Jeremy Wariner and Darold Williamson both of the States and both who have better Personal Bests.  Hopefully Tyler Christophers plan of opting out of major track meets and concentrating on todays final will result in a gold.

Ill be keeping my eyes and ears peeled on this final today!

Tyler Christopher brings home Canada's first medal of the games... a Bronze medal in a National Record!  Considering he wasn't on the radar a year ago this is big for him.  Hopedully the pressure doesn't get to him like Perdita Felicien :(

Gary Reed and mark Boswell both in finals tomorrow!

its not pressure that has gotten to Perdita, its the fact that hurdles is not a very forgiving event, and the fact that she has been off form all year. A hurdler can have what Perdita had happen to her, look at Hayes, went right into the tenth hurdle when it looked like she was going to take the lead and win the world championship

No, we haven’t won a medal since Beatrice Baumuina won the gold in the discus at the 1997 champs in Athens. NZ hasn't even come close its former glory and dominance of middle distance running in a long time. But Valerie Vili can hopefully bring home our first medal in 8 years.

Well, all I can say is thank goodness the Americans dropped the baton. We might win a medal now.

Looking back to yesterday, I was delighted with Tim Benjamin's performance in the 400 metres. He may not have won a medal, but he showed that he is now genuinely a world-class performer.

Unfortunately, the championships have had their first positive drugs test.

A massive drug scandal involving ONE whole athlete. Wow.

Who was the first athlete to test positive at a championship? Hmmm, I wonder.

the first athlete to test positive was 1979 i believe - weightlifting - American

we also don't calm Ben Johnson, he's Jamaician

and who said anything about a massive drug scandal, i just said drug scandal
