:CAN Derek Drouin, Commonwealth Games, Pan Am Games, World and Olympic champion in the men's high jump has switched to the decathlon :yikes:

The goal is the 2018 Commonwealth Games, in which we might see a Canadian sweep in the event (Drouin, Warner and Pierce Le Page, imo Canada's best young athlete atm). 

 

2.36 in the high jump in Rio's decathlon would have given him 169 more points than the rest of the field in the high jump.

 

Looks intriguing :thumbup:

Spain has now 5 athletes in the TOP12 European men's 400m indoor ranking. I hate the fact that we can't send a 4x400 rellay team because they're set using last years result :cry:

This weekend the city of Monterrey will host a stage of the 2017 Race Walk Challenge and they plan to apply this rule:

 

Quote

Disqualification 7.

...

(c) A Pit lane shall be used for any race where the applicable Regulations for the competition so provide and may be used for other races as determined by the relevant governing body or Organising Committee. in such cases, an athlete will be required to enter the Pit lane and remain there for the applicable period (as set out in the Regulations or Organising Committee decision) once they have received three Red Cards and are so advised by the Chief Judge or someone delegated by him. if, at any time, the athlete receives an additional Red Card from a Judge other than one of the three who had previously sent a Red Card, he shall be disqualified. An athlete who fails to enter the Pit lane when required to do so, or remain there for the applicable period, shall be disqualified by the Chief Judge

...

 

According to the organizers, this will only be the second time this format of a "penalty box" will be used, but is under consideration by IAAF to be used as the standard rule in future competitions.
