mikesiva 2017-08-03 07:21:03 

Is it Janieve Russell or Leah Nugent?


"Leading the pack to break up that juggernaut is Jamaican Janieve Russell, who's performed well in July, winning in London with a 54.02 season's best, and finishing second in Luzern and Rabat and third in Monaco. Although only 23, Russell, the 2012 world junior champion, comes armed with major championships credentials, which include a fifth place finish at the 2015 World Championships and a seventh place showing in Rio last year. Jamaica will also be represented by Rhonda Whyte and Ristananna Tracey who were 1-2 at the national championships, the former with a 54.39 personal best."

Janieve Russell?

"Jamaica's 400m hurdler Leah Nugent revealed that her below-par performances heading into the London World Championships were, in part, due to a tweak in her technique. That aside, she is now ready to deliver."

Or Leah Nugent?

Russell was fourth at Ja trials and will be watching the WC on tv.

Men's shot putt qualifying

2) David Re (Italy) 45.71
3) Cedenio (TT) 45.77

Women's triple jump qualifying

Shanika Ricketts (jca) jumped 14.21...automatically qualified.

Kimberley Williams (Jca) 14.14 in her third and final jump for ninth so far...a nervous wait. She stays there, and makes it through to the final.

Women's 100m

Eurosport commie says ET has a sore Achilles...could that be why she opted out of the 200m? He said that's why she was running in flats earlier this season.

by the way, Chrissan Gordon not listed on the 400M start list tomorrow? any idea if she is hurt?

 
Headley 2017-08-05 11:39:11 

In reply to mikesiva

Eurosport commie says ET has a sore Achilles..


HAD not has. That is not the reason why she is not running the 200m. The reason is that it is hard and unless you are an athlete who can translate that victory in $$$$$$ there is no point doing it at the WC when you have already done it at the Olympics.

We are fans who count medals. Athletes have to be smart and look to maximize $$$$$$$ while minimizing injuries. Bolt made it look easy. It is not.

When you recover from the 100m later today remember not to miss the 400m semis at 1:40 Ja time tomorrow. It may be more exciting than the finals.

Bolt should have retired after last year Olympics, would have been the perfect ending to his career, now this loss will always be used by his critics.

Still Congrats to Gatlin he never gave up these last couple years and he got Bolt in the end

He just had a very poor start and could not recover in time. He has spoiled us so much we expect him to always win.

Still trying to figure out what went wrong with Elaine. I did not see an obvious stumble. I will need to see slo mo.

Not sure what table Atto is seeing. May be a comment to satisfy the USA folks. As you know we have plenty more young talent to come especially females.

Bowie has been running well since 2015. Ta Lou is good and peaked at the right time.

You probably have a point regarding the college season, cause at Bloomfield was shot at trials, and Kerley is not the monster frm earlier in the season.

I hadn't heard anything! But if you hear, do post a link...that said, I found this:

"Olympic champion Elaine Thompson was also physically sick before the 100 metres final on Sunday, though the Jamaican said that was not unusual for her and hadn't had any effect on her below-par performance. She finished fifth."

More here

here as well

And here

I wouldn't be surprised, given that the NoroVirus is transmitted in an environment where poor hygiene is practised. These British hotels have very poor hygiene...one of Britain's dirty secrets.
cool
These hotels tend to contract their cleaning out to cleaning companies. a relative of mine worked for one of these companies, and because she came from Jamaica, she would scrub and clean thoroughly, each and every room.

But she got into trouble...why? She was cleaning too slow. She was assigned a number of rooms, and she was only doing half of them. The company, and the hotel, didn't care that she was doing it properly. She was supposed to achieve numerical targets.

Eventually, an East European colleague of hers pulled her one side, and showed her what to do. Sweep dirt under bed, only clean top surfaces, and make it LOOK clean. Mission accomplished...no wonder there's Noro Virus.

What she had to say about working in the hotel kitchens was enough to make my stomach crawl….

Haroun bronze, they were so far back i couldn't figure out who came third.

Rubbish to bar Makwala from going to work. The norovirus affects the UK every winter and it's left to the discretion of the workers to go to work. Some employers will threaten to fire workers if they don't turn up. I was fired from a job in the UK because I was sick with the norovirus.

The only exception is if you work in food preparation. Then you are sent home. A BBC interview showed the IAAF was acting on the advice of the NHS. But this was an overreaction. If Makwala was American i wonder if they would have barred him.

Makwala doesn't work in that industry. But it is probably people who work in the hotel kitchens who gave him that virus. The NHS says that one of the best ways to prevent the transmission of the norovirus is to wash your hands after using the toilet. Those of us who have used public facilities in the UK will have noticed that a helluva lot of British people don't wash their hands after using the toilet. And one of the ways this norovirus is transmitted is if fecal matter finds its way into the food you eat.

The hotel has a lot of questions to answer.

The problem was the hotels probably weren't paying the cleaning companies enough to cover additional time needed to properly clean the hotels. A shame because in the end it's the consumers who get hurt the most.

 
mikesiva 2017-08-09 13:29:37 

In reply to DukeStreet

Exactly...in Jamaica, they clean properly, because if an American tourist ever became ill, the negative publicity would destroy the tourist industry. Here in the UK, the hotel management is hinting that this norovirus was brought to the hotel by an athlete...living in denial.

We don't have a norovirus problem in Jamaica, and when my parents lived in Barbados, they didn't have a norovirus problem there. However, when they lived in the tiny island of Bequia, they had a norovirus problem every winter, whenever a cruise ship came to the island from Europe.

The norovirus is Europe's zika...except while zika was all over the North Atlantic media last year, the North Atlantic ignores the plague of norovirus in Europe.

Congrats to Richards...he has the potential to be really good. I hope he pushes on next season. This is now a weak event, and if he can clock under 20 seconds when it counts, the gold medal is there for the taking.

There was an American 1-2 in the final of the women's 400m hurdles, which was won by Kori Carter in 53.07, ahead of Delilah Mohammed (53.50). Jamaican Ristananna Tracey took the bronze medal with a personal best of 53.74.

The men's 200m final was disappointing, and seems to be suffering from a post-Usain Bolt hangover. It was won by Turkey's Ramil Guliyev in a slow time of 20.09, ahead of favourite Wayde van Niekerk of South africa and Trinidadian Jereem Richards, both of whom clocked 20.11.

In yesterday's triple jump final, Yordanys Duranova (Dominica) came 11th with a leap of 16.42.

In the women's 200m semis, all three Jamaicans failed to advance.

Heat One - Sashalee Forbes (Jca) fifth in 23.09, anthonique Strachan (Bah) eighth in 23.21.

Heat Two - Shaunae Miller (Bah), first in 22.49, Simone Facey (Jca) fourth in 23.01, Semoy Hackett (TT) seventh in 23.54.

In the first round of today's decathlon, Lindon Victor (Grenada) clocked 10.83 for 899 points in the men's 100m. Kurt Felix (Grenada) clocked 11.08 for 843 points.

In the second round, the long jump, Felix had two no-jumps in the long jump. That puts him in a crisis position, with only one jump left, and a danger of not registering any points. Saves hismelf with his final jump...7.46 for 925 points. Victor jumped 6.98 for 809 points.

After two events, Felix is in 14th place with 1768 points, while Victor is 21st with 1708 points.

Third round...Victor threw 15.14 in his first throw in the shot putt. In his second attempt, he threw 15.86. His third and final effort was no improvement. However, his 15.86 was the best of the entire group. He got 843 points for that.

Felix threw 14.83 in his opening effort. He followed that up with 15.01 with his second throw. His final attempt was a no-throw. He got 790 points from the shot putt.

After three events, Felix was ninth with 2558 points, followed by Victor in tenth on 2551 points.

Couple of things.

Everything works in cycles.

Currently, there is a great crop of 400m male runners from Jamaica. They can only get better and hopefully pull together something memorable in time for 2020.

Currently, the trio of Parchment, McLeod, Levy are very strong in the 110m hurdles with teenager De'Jour Russell promising strong future returns.

The cupboard is not exactly full for the 100m sprints for both mens and womens BUT as we all know, great sprinters from Jamaica can pop up at any given time so patience is needed.

We are excited about Nathan Allen, Gaye, Bloomfield and Javon Francis but until 2 or 3 or all,of,them can break 44 fairly regularly, then I will reserve my enthusiasm.

This year's Champs brought out some excellent hurdlers especially on the girls side so hopefully one or two can come through. I have seen very good female. hurdlers fall away after Champs.

no you are right.. he was 4th at trials.. no Francis, Bloomfield or Dunkley. BUt Sanjoy Givans was 3rd in the 100 and after running 10.3 here, you notice no one in their right mind even thinks of putting him on the 4 * 1 ?. Rusheen is too unpredictable. if he must run, let him start it so that if we get 46 rusheen, (much more likely than 43.9), the others know to run out of their skin.

No question America is now the dominant sprint country, winning the sprints and now the relays, the tables have turned in that element of the sport. No need to look at the medal table, they have always dominated the entire medals

Long before the meet I said he would not report for the start.

But then he turned up in camp for the 100 so I said, he must be in shape or else he would not turn up.

Definitely undercooked but the worse possible ending.

Jamaica was not winnig all sprint events when they were dominating the sprints. So keep that in mind as you press further

 
JahJah 2017-08-12 17:27:36 

In reply to problemjay

Jamaica was wining the 100s and 200s and the men's 4 by 1 with regularity. The only think USA did differently was win the 100s. Not the men's 4 by 1. No ground made on the 200s. And they wouldn't have won any of those with everyone, including De Grasse healthy.

Think on that. Jamaica dominated the short sprints for the decade. Not sprinting over all.

Keep pumping up the nation of well over 300 mil as if they did anything special at these games. You speak like they swept everyone aside. But Omar, Sally, Daphne, that 200m dude from where again, Wade, GB relay team and dem had other ideas.

Winning the 100's is a big difference. That is the marquee sprint event and the Americans won it ..and you don't know what will happen if who was there or not, 'ifs' do not count so lets not talk about what would have happen if another athlete was there...also you said not the 4x1? The Americans won the Women 4X1 today. What else you want to cry about?

this WC is bizzare. i know that Makwala was quarantined earlier in the week, and so was the Trini MichellE Ahye. They didnt let her run her heats in the 200. But that was like Tuesday. I thought the Noravirus thing was under control. i am hoping that it is actually the noravirus issue, as opposed to a Steve Francis power play. The noravirus and the vomiting would explain the 100 finals.

Actually...i think that Bolt showed the world, that after all is said and done...he is human after all.

He spoiled us for a decade with seemingly effortless performances above and beyond. Today...Bolt reminded everyone he was only human....giving it one last go...like a good soldier......

Elaine is 25,so she will be here for some time left.
Sasha Lee could develop more.
C Williams needs to develop some top end as she fades after 50 meters. Very fast though.
J Smith if she was not DQd at trials,we would have had a better eval on her.

I believe we need to be honest with ourselves and admit there is a definite trend occurring. Great Britain is slowly exerting herself as the dominant force in track and field. Disgruntled or forgotten athletes have been jumping ship from their home countries and GB has been doing a great job of scooping them up with glee.

Sure Jamaica is a powerhouse and will always stand strong and deliver top athletes. Sure USA will keep churning out the big names and always be in the top 3 but we have to keep an eye on the British and what they have been doing for the past 5 - 10 years.
