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.
