    Quote: “HT--250-4 You're hearing it here first!! I'm IGNORING the ruling by USADA about Gwen Berry's "drug ban", and the loss of her AR. On this blog, and in my T&F Record Book, Berry REMAINS the American Record holder...at 250-4!! (Anyway, she'll break it again...maybe at the Trials...when her "ban" is up!!) ” This guys is like my mind. AaronK's Track and Field Record Book

    Quote from Meg Mulder: “Even though he has not made an appearance: "Who's Robert Harting?" nobody would say that ” sure hope that... otherwise it would be a shame

  • Quote from Robin Claes: “Quote from Meg Mulder: “Sadly Harting is one of the few who care. Many others just want to make what little money they can and move on.” Having in mind how much money T&F athletes make its totally understandable...” I agree fully. Robert Harting has a bank sponsor that would appreciate this stance. There are many lesser performers who must make nice with the organizers and not be seen as a trouble maker. Trouble makers will sit home while the easy going ones will compete…

    Overall 21 different national anthems were heard in Hayward Field since the start of the championships and 40 IAAF member federations had athletes stand on the medal podium.

  • After the Commonwealth Games #10 on the world list is 21,37m (70' 1½"), the best #10 since 1986. Why has men's shot put become so deep in 2014?

  • Quote from Justin RODHE: “Quote from Auton Bullips: “@Justin RODHE what did you think of your throwing in the Tucson meets?” Meaning, I was prepared to foul every throw out the front in attempt to throw far enough. The problem, was that I COULDN'T foul a single throw out the front.” You're the opposite of Brian Oldfield.

  • He should go with a kilt. I think @Brian Oldfield used to where one on occasion.

  • That 18,35m puts Osborn in the lead for making the US World Youth team for the 2015 meet in Cali, Colombia. I wonder if he can take some throws with the 5kg ball?

  • Your left arm is too active, looks like an eel being electrocuted, flapping and bending. Keep it long at the elbow and pull straight across your chest at the angle of attack as you block to get a big lag and long pull.

  • Quote from Bill Pendleton: “My freshman thrower threw 172' 7 ( 52.5 m) with a 1.6 discus yesterday at the Triton Inv. That is a foot off the California state record.” Coach @Bill Pendleton have you thought about having him compete a few times with a 1,5kg discus to have a mark to submit to the IAAF World Youth list? 30th on the U18 2013 list is 56,69m.
