Trey Hardee was testing his form in Germany today together with Schrader and Freimuth. the competition was 110H, OV and discus, Hardee ran 13.70s and threw 47.79m, then sprained his ankle so he did not do the PV. He said it's only a slight sprain, which would not affect his preparations for Moscow. Schrader: 14.10s, 5.00m, 45.51m (all close to his PBs) Freimuth: 14.04s, 4.60m, 45.13m (did not attempt any heights after 4.60)
1500m women's 1 Christine BARDELLE (FRA) 4:09.64 (will be 39 yo on 16 August; PB, from 4:13.73, 2003) 2 Ayako JIN'NOUCHI (JPN) 4:10.08 (PB, from 4:11.30, 2012) 3 Angela SMIT (NZL) 4:11.78 (2nd fastest, after 4:11.72, 2013)
Based on the winds listed for the 200m races, I would guess that the wind conditions for these distance races may not have been that great, which makes these performances worth noting, for these athletes. Mackey noted post-race that the conditions were windy.

While this board was shut down.....or before.......news came in that Morgan Lake (15? 16??) of GB broke the age 17 and under record for the Hept with a 5478!! This beat Jessica Ennis's and Denise Lewis's bests at Lake's age!! (Not sure if that's just a UK age record, or a World age record!!)
Also, missed mark (above) from the Flanders meet was a 9:09 3K win for Deb Meier! Don't have exact time, or who she beat, but it was 9:09 and change!!

Superb score, she is also only 25 points off the UK U18 record and has most of 2 years to better it having only just turned 16 2 months ago. SHe would have beaten it at the world youth but became ill on day 2, it affected her performance and DNF. She already had a record day 1 score.
Morgan Lake is serious one for the future she has no weaknesses except the 800m which she will get better at with age. She only just turned 16 and can high jump 1.90m, Long Jump 6.19, Shot Putt 14.70 and hurdle 14.14. She will be dangerous in 4 years I think and a contender after that.
Chris Clarke, 2007 world youth and 2009 European junior 400m champion, had a sterling pair of performances at the UK Inter-Counties in Bedford today. He ran 20.25 in the 200m heats before improving to 20.22 (-1.3 m/s) in the final. His 200m PB prior to today stood at 20.65! He's incredibly injury-prone which is probably why he's focusing on the 200m these days (his 400m PB still stands from the 2009 European Juniors at 45.59 when he was 19y) but it's looking like the switch is paying off.
This performance also means two British sprinters have broken 20.3 (or three if you include Delano Williams) for 200m in the same season for the first time since 2002.
Arthur Abele won the german decathlon champs today with 8251 points. Besides Schrader he is the second german decathlete who had a great comeback this year after a long injury break. That makes it 8 germans over 8200 points this year, i can't wait for the qualification massacre for Zurich next year.
