European Championships U18 starting 4-8 July in Jerusalem.

 

The Dutch :NED team consists of 19 athletes in total.

Four of them are 400m hurdlers. Wonder if that's some sort of early Bol effect already.

It's surprising that each country can only send two participants in each event instead of three. Was it always this way? I don't remember.

 

The Greek :GRE team consists of 48 athletes in total. We had around 80 with standards. In some events we had 7 or 8 with standards but only two got selected due to these limits :yikes:

Lots of National Championships this weekend.  Unfortunately the one most people want to see - the US Nationals - are locked away pretty tight on pay TV sites, although the individual finals will get to YT later.  British one is free streaming.

Also on free, the Kenyan World & Commonwealth trials (official National Champs were last month.)

News from the US trials.  Sha-Carri Richardson fails to emulate Florence Griffiths-Joyner's World Record, to the extent of going out in the first round.

Many dodgy bootleg streams here, watch 'em before the US Legal System gets out of bed.

Lithuanian athletics championships opened today with the Discus Throw

 

1. Mykolas Alekna - 69.00 PB, remains the 5th best thrower even with the PB, really shows the quality of throwing this season.

2. Andrius Gudžius - 65.21, really couldn't handle the pressure today, only two valid throws.

3. Aleksas Abromavičius - 59.93

4. Martynas Alekna - 59.70

Updates from the Lithuanian championships

 

Rugilė Miklyčiūtė (2005) goes above and beyond. She broke the Lithuanian pole vault NR a week ago and today she smashed it!

 

3.60 XXO

3.75 O

3.95 O

4.00 O

4.10 XO

 

And then she stopped jumping.

 

First ever Lithuanian woman to jump 4 metres, becomes the third best European U18 vaulter this season, qualifies for World U20 championships.

 

Another very respectable result came from Jogailė Petrokaitė with a clean 6.76 jump. That's her PB and she's having a season of her life. Might be enough for ranking points to get quotas in both the World and European championships. We'll know next week.

Not a real event, but 38 yo :GRE Antigoni Drisbioti became the oldest Greek to set a national record, this time in the 5000m walk (she also did it earlier this year in the new 35k walk as a 37 yo). With 21:06.40, she broke Christina Deskou's record from 1999 (21:37.78).

Probably last update from the Lithuanian championships as it's unlikely that anything crazy is going to happen.

 

Greta Karinauskaitė broke the Lithuanian U23 record in the 3000m Steeplechase with 9:50.26, you're likely to see her in the European Championships, she was also very close to qualify to the World Championships as well. 

 

400m had two good news today: Tomas Keršulis won the race with 46.45, this will probably be enough to qualify him to the European Championships through the ranking system, whilst Lukas Sutkus came second with 47.57, qualifying to the World U20. 0.26s off of the Lithuanian U20 record, which might still be broken this season.

Only a couple of finals on Day 1 in the UK Champs.

In the Women's 3000m (U20): 1. Pippa Roessler 9:33.13, 2: Emily Shaw 9:34.03 PB, 3: Jessica Spilsbury 9:37.31 PB, and in the men's equivalent: 1. Thomas Bridger 8:18.10 CR, 2. Edward Bird 8:18.22 PB, 3. Johnny Livingstone 8:18.38

Elsewhere, Elliot Thompson leads the decathlon after impressing in the shot put and going sub-50 in the 400m. In the Men's 400m Hurdles, Joshua Faulds went fastest in round 1 with a 50.05 PB, while Ojie Edoburun set a 10.13 to go fastest in the first round of the Men's 100m. Daryll Neita set the fastest time in the women's event with an 11.04. Victoria Ohuruogu's 51.53 set the fastest time in the Women's 400m, while a 46.43 from Matthew Hudson-Smith was the best in the men's event. Finally, in the 1500m, Neil Gourley's 3:42.54 was fastest on the men's side, with Laura Muir the fastest woman, setting a 4:11.34. There's a lot more finals today, will send a recap when the day is done

As now we come across the world
To share these Games of old
Let all the flags of every land
In brotherhood unfold

Elliot is Daley’s son & he has just put in an incredible 1500m run to go from bronze to gold!  :yikes:
