Hassan is actually quite likeable as well, always friendly and polite to everyone and always being quite modest about herself. Too bad she's training with that shady dude in the US though. 

 

Churandy Martina and Liemarvin Bonevacia are some of the most chill athletes ever (I guess the Netherlands Antilles have a positive spirit) as well. 

 

It's just a matter of waiting for Turkey or Azerbaijan to please help us get rid of Schippers. 

 

Send her to :AHO, or at least to :ARU. It's not nice to steal without giving anything in return. :p

Yeah, this Shukh girl is one to watch out for. She's recored 51 m in the javelin here already. I thought Ruckstuhl was much older tbh. She seems to be around for a much longer than in reality.

My money's on Vicente :d

I truly wonder why women's decathlon is not being added as a 'thing' yet. I mean, awesome events are being thrown out of the window left and right to make space for women's events (even if they're not competitive), all in the name of gender equality, yet women still have to accept doing 'only' 7 events, jumping over lower hurdles (and a shorter distance), throwing lighter weights and so on. The whole thing of these special women's weights/heights and only 7 events says "women are not as good as men", which is quite odd to be accepted nowadays. 

Please stop this agenda, I don't want all of our Heptathlon athlete hopes thrown out of the window with 2.80 Pole Vault marks.

And what is so wrong with Schippers? Without her, Dutch athletics would be anonymous on a global stage ;) 

 

Ever since switching from heptathlon to full-time sprinter, she's become more and more and more 'arrogant', irritating, angry at everyone, blindly mad as soon as anyone says a fact like 'hey, three years ago you were faster'. She has become pure madness and surely the average Dutch person likes her (because she wins a few medals and coincidentally has the same nationality in her passport as them, so hey, gotta cheer for her!), but among athletics fans (in the Netherlands) she is very, very quickly losing her popularity. 

 

Basically she is one of the most negative people we have in the Dutch world of sports.

Don't count out Qatar.

Wonderful idea! Buy her right now if possible, Tokyo 2020 won't fall within the 3-year deadline so that'd be good :d

No! How can you even think of sending someone who projects that much negativity to a place with that much positivity? Might as well send another Hurricane Maria/Irma that way, that'd do less damage.

Austra Skujyte has the decathlon world record, so there's hope :d

Austra Skujytė is now training a girl that's breaking all of our U16 100m and Long Jump records.

She (Skujytė)  might have not been a good sprinter in her time (because of how her body was built), but she finished the best sprinter school possible in Lithuania (her coach was Stanislovaitis that passed away two years ago) and is now probably the only person handing down his knowledge, since Lithuanian 100m record holder Rytis Sakalauskas left the sport in 2017 with no interest in coaching.

 

Also, Skujytė has a son now, so there's hope indeed :d

Quick look at the Heptathlon standings.

Lucia 15th before the last event is something unreal for our athletics. that would be absolutely awesome if she manage to keep it, but it´s gonna be too much difficult for her I am afraid

 

btw she is also still on her way for a new NR, she need 2:12.07 in the last 800m :fingers:

 

Also the 4x400 final is amazing result, the girls are so happy :d
