    Quote from Jim Williams: “I can see her throw 75m at the trials and the games. John Smith coached athletes seem to be physically prepared, it's always a question of mental preparation. ” Okay, but it looks like Berry is working full-time. Too bad the USATF keeps all the $$$ in their HQ and does not try to support the athletes.

    Oh... thank you Dylan for getting this thread out of the "dust"... Too bad i have not seen it earlier. @Bill Pendleton I bet it would be best if anything like this happens we need to try and make more noise, maybe even asking @Florian van Dijck or @Norm Zylstra to put it up the website?

    Quote from bingisser: “Michael and Crystal have retired. He is helping me out, but I am not part of the Kamloops center as I have not been based there since 2010. There are a handful of other national athletes in the group now.” So Dr. Bondarchuk coaches: - Dylan Armstrong (Canada) - Kibwé Johnson (USA) - Yevgeniya Kolodko (Russia)

  • Looks like Rodhe is in Pennsylvania with Garage Strength for a while. @Justin RODHE how long?

  • Quote from Amy Larson: “Finally someone is willing to stand-up and stick it to the IAAF. I would assume Harting is too popular to be blackballed from the Diamond League series. One worry is that the old coots at the IAAF and IOC have long memories.” No question there is a risk of getting frozen out by the IAAF goons. The agents and IAAF are the ones making the $$$ in Athletics and they care little for the athletes that do not line their pockets. The hammer is not a 'money' event, it's out of the…

  • Quote from orazio: “Hey guys. Yeah they said Jaco and Mozia hit the toe board. I personally didn't see the incidents but that was the word from both the athletes. No, Jaco won't be able to go to Continental Cup as they only take two throwers, but they have to be from different countries. Same happened in 2010. South Africa placed 1, 2 and 3 in the shot, so they sent 4th place.” @orazio... I assume you're SA thrower Orazio Cremona. Thanks for posting. How are the training/ practice facilities in …

    Perkovic was banged-up in Glasgow, and it wasn't the EC, so I see the Croatian going over 67m for gold, with Robert-Michon and Craft waiting for Perkovic to blunder.

  • The only European over 20m in awhile, Christina Schwanitz looks to match compatriot Storl's favorite role. With silvers behind recent Commonwealth champ Adams, Schwanitz's championship performances have been top shelf. One wonders if Yevgeniya Kolodko's time with Dr. Bonderchuk will boost her championship performance enough to challenge the German? Aliona Dubitskaya and Halyna Obleshchuk look to be in the hunt for the lesser medals as well, both over 19m this summer.
