You want to say that you've been using Eurosport regularly outside Europe?

Well there are better channels then Eurosport when they’re all available. I tried the online platform for :CZE and got it work a couple months back. I could at least watch Eurosport 1 and 2.

:POLSofia Ennaoui finished dead last in the Kamila Skolimowska Memorial today and announced she's battling a hip & Achilles issue and won't take part in Doha WCh :(


This extended season is turning out to be a real dud. Ennaoui joins Anita Wlodarczyk, Joanna Jozwik, Klaudia Siciarz & Cyprian Mrzyglod as high-profile Polish absentees. Not to mention Michal Haratyk has a finger swelling and will probably bomb out hard.

Also an update on :QAT Abderrahaman Samba injury. According to the Norwegian news site, VG.no, who has spoken with his Swedish manager, Daniel Wessfeldt, Samba still struggles to run due to a hip injury. His manager says they will decide if Samba runs at the WCH 4-5 days before it starts. 


Journalist from VG

- Samba has not run anything?



- No, no. This will not be decided until four or five days before the World Championships. Every day is a battle against the clock. There is no point to start if he is only able to run around 49 sec. at the World Championships. Then it is better not to run, Wessfeldt replies.

- He has only been able to train for the last 12 to 14 days, he says.


When asked if Samba will run a test competition before the World Cup, almost four months after he ran the 400 meter hurdles last time, his manager Wessfeldt replies that it will not happen until September 18-20. The plan is for him to move from his training base in Spanish Valencia to Doha on September 22. 

 - We probably shouldn't be too positive. Let's see how things will go, says Daniel Wessfeldt.

:BAH Bahamas might not send a team to the WCH due to lack of funding.

Source: https://thenassauguardian.com/2019/09/14/world-championships-team-in-jeopardy/

The Bahamian 10-member team might not be able to make it because of insufficient funds, according to Drumeco Archer, president of the Bahamas Association of Athletic Associations (BAAA).

According to Archer, the BAAA proposed a $116,000 budget to the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture for the prestigious meet from February 1 of this year and on Wednesday evening, September 11, the ministry granted them $25,000 – way short of the proposed budget.

The team is set to travel next week and Archer said if they only have $25,000 they will not send a team to Doha. The BAAA refuses to send a team that can only send some of the athletes because all of the athletes qualify for the meet.

The athletes that are set to compete with Team Bahamas are Tynia Gaither, Anthonique Strachan, Shaunae Miller-Uibo, Pedrya Seymour, Steven Gardiner, Alonzo Russell, Latario Collie-Minns, Lathone Minns, Donald Thomas and Samson Colebrook, who opted out.

It really costs 100.000 dollars to send ten athletes and some coaches to the Bahamas? I'd be really, really, really surprised if Miller-Uibo doesn't have a big sponsor or something that could very easily cough that up..

:SVK Team Slovakia :SVK




Marcel Lomnický  (Hammer Throw)

Matej Tóth  (50km Race Walk)




Gabriela Gajanová  (800m)

Martina Hrašnová   (Hammer Throw)

Mária Katerinka Czaková  (50km Race Walk)


so SVK will send only 5 athletes. 6 made the standards but the Marathon Runner Tibor Sahajda decided to instead compete at the Košice peace marathon in 2 weeks (the SVK national championship in marathon) in order to win valuable points for the Olympic ranking. 

2 Other athletes missed the WCH by really few...especially the 100m Hurdles athlete Stanislava Lajčáková will miss the world championshps for 0.01s :( and Triple Jumper Tomáš Veszelka for 4cm :(

As we were discussing in the Suggestions thread, it would be nice to get these schedules posted at the top of threads again for events, because the official websites are always terrible. I just put this together for the World Athletics Championship. @Sindo, would it be possible to add this to the first post, maybe as a "spoiler" so that people don't have to scroll through it?
