  1. 2 Chinese, 2 Americans The world record holder from Portugal has to wait as her time was not set in an official qualifying event Probably they will find ways on getting more to compete ib the end
  2. Rumour is that some of the American threatened to sue the IAAF. At the moment only 4 have qualified to take part.
  3. Based on its wish to ensure gender equality on the field of play, the IAAF Council has decided to create a new 50km race walk competition for women at the IAAF World Championships London 2017. Scheduled to start at the same time as the men's event, the women’s 50km race walk in London will have separate results and prize money. The entry standard is 4:30:00 to be achieved by Tuesday 25 July midnight Monaco time. In order for athletes to be allowed to finish the race in London, they shall be required to start the last two-kilometre lap within the time limit of 4:17:00. IAAF Member Federations have been advised of the decision along with the qualifying standard. “IAAF Council’s decision to create a new 50km race walk competition for women with separate results and prize money at the World Championships in London follows the 2016 IAAF Race Walking Team Championships in Rome, where one female athlete from the USA joined her four male teammates,” said IAAF President Sebastian Coe. “There has been equal prize money for men and women at the IAAF World Championships since the introduction of financial rewards in the early 1990s and this decision brings gender quality in terms of competition opportunity too. “But we must acknowledge this has been a last-minute decision based upon the request of a small group of athletes,” added Coe. “Therefore, to ensure the long-term credibility of the World Championships, we will follow the recommendation of the Race Walking Committee and assess the development of the event to determine whether there are sufficient numbers of athletes and countries legitimately interested.” IAAF
  4. I like the idea that the Summer Olympics would have a 12 year schedule. 1st Olympics could go to North or South America 2nd Olympics to Europe or Africa 3rd Olympics to Asia or Australia. Then back to #1 again
  5. If Paris did not win this time then it is unlikely any city in Western Europe would bid for 20 years. The same applies to the USA if LA did not win, This way we have a few more years to find new host cities. Maybe by 2032 India or South Africa will be able to bid? I think Paris 2024 - LA 2028 is a brilliant decision but I don't like the way they made the decision. Too much secrecy.
  6. I hear rumours of a medical problem causing strange readings in his biological passport
  7. Very strange. They have been rumours about Schwazer for many years, Stories that he was on EPO and other drugs long before he won his gold in Beijing but even the athletes who believe he cheated them of medals find this new doping case very suspicious,
  8. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2017/jul/06/philippa-york-gender-transition-cyclist-robert-millar?CMP=share_btn_tw
  9. The Court of Arbitration of Sport (CAS) rejects an appeal by Sagan to be reinstated to the TdF http://www.tas-cas.org/fileadmin/user_upload/Media_Release_5225.pdf
  10. This shouldn't be possible according to the rules but let's wait and see what happens
  11. This is probably the best view
  12. Cavendish is out
