European U23 Championships

Postby LopenUupunut » Thu Jul 11, 2013 3:37 am

Live results here.

As noted in the Schippers thread, she won her heat in an easy 11.20 (+1.4). Jack Green DNF after hurdle 2 in 400mH heats; didn't appear to have hurt himself. Röhler looked shaky in the JT qualification; not surprised he had difficulties as the winds weren't easy and he's tended to get his best results in later rounds, but I'd still have expected much better than 73.91. He does qualify though. Kazmirek off to a nice start in the decathlon; he's a tiny bit behind his 8350 from Ratingen, but that's just because he got a +5.4 tailwind in the 100m there, his form here has been at least as good.

As ever, European Athletics is providing some excellent free live streaming coverage:

No idea who is commentating, but he's startlingly well informed considering the relative youth of his commentary subjects.

Are you serious? He doesn't know how to pronounce any of the names, not even world class athletes like Gemili.

Actually, I take that back. He's rapidly proving himself to be a fully metriculated member of the Hammond-Jackson school of hopeless commentary.

He doesn't know how to pronounce any of the names, he doesn't even know all the countries. Terrible and hopeless.

I really must have caught him during a wildly uncharacteristic spell of compentency. He's now just started giving up on people's names halfway through and making the rest up.

Both Gemili and Tobais looked really good in the semis.

808 for Cáceres in the LJ Q, after 822 and 820 in his previous two competitions. Potential medallist at Moscow if he keeps this up? Morgunov 2nd @ 784; only 742 for Jaszczuk, though he still scraped through in 11th.

Nesterenko fails to qualify for the discus final, already 12 better than his 56.27.

And we thought he'd be over 70 by now...

The way he was shouting during the last lap of the 10000m you'd think he just saw the Hindenburg bursting into flames.

Well, for all the hype, Gill hasn't improved on his PB (with either the 6k or the 7.26) since 2011, which isn't a good sign at his age.

Agree with above comments. The feed obviously shows extensive coverage and a high quality video but the announcer's performance is almost Hammondesque though I doubt Tom could have carried on this long solo. He is absolutely butchering names. He seemed surprised during women's hammer when throws where the wire brushed the netting for the cage were measured.

The comments frequently made here about your American commentators do not suggest that any of them can remotely compare with this idiotic commentating.
It is not that he mispronounces names that are easy and present no problem, it's the sheer exceptional butchery of 75 per cent of the other names; he is given a sheet of names with phonetics , I am told, to assist but he is a complete f ucking incompetent; who gave him this job.? Is he doing it for free??

I will say at least this guy is watching the meet even if his observations are not exactly revelations. Tom, on the other hand, is staying with the pre-event story line regardless if that has anything to do with the actual competition taking place in front of him.

This guy does have to be about the worst with pronunciations as I've ever heard-at least Tom is not horrible at these. Of all the names to get right, you'd think an Irish guy could get the name Baker correct but instead at least twice I heard Barker. That is pathetic if he has the names spelled out phonetically. Most of the names, other than about the first syllables, don't look remotely like anything he's saying. Maybe there's some dyslexia coming through.

Unfortunately this aren't WCs, i would love to hear him try to pronounce madagascan names, anyone remember Ramalalanirina? 8-) That name would kill him.

Andy Edwards normally commentates on these events and he's pretty good. Perhaps he's doing the World Youths or Universiade instead this year? I've just switched the sound off and the coverage is fine. 8-)

I'm feeling kind of conflicted now about our friend in the commentary box. On the one hand, the pronounciation has degenerated almost beyond parody (I mean, not half an hour 'Schyfurs' and 'Jemell-Eye' won the 100ms). On the other hand, though, the guy genuinely seems to like athletics and to be enthusiastic about the events, a quality not guaranteed in commentators (AHEM MR HAMMOND).

I'm finding him quite good, if unusual, company on a rainy day working from home.

I'm watching this on Finnish TV and don't have to endure quite so many mispronunciations, though they did choke on Zane Duquemin. (Fair's fair - I don't have a clue about that one, either :))

What's getting on my nerves, though, is having to watch medal ceremonies. We already got those right at the Euros last year so it's disheartening to see them disrupt the main action again :(

I'm glad someone else posted that! I initially thought the foul was 8.60m-plus but it's quite easy to overstate these things so I reigned in my estimate to about 8.50m. :wink:

I just analysed the big foul and (for control) the big legit jump. I found the big foul was 861 ± 2 cm - so it almost certainly was 860+, but not quite as huge as I initially thought :)

470 CR for Zhuk-Krasnova. Bengtsson fought well but was outclassed. Nice to see Zalewski win the m200 here after narrowly missing out at the World Juniors last year :)

Ingebrigtsen won the 5K after falling in the heats in the 1500. You'd think the Brits would have thought twice about jogging the first 3K with him in the race but no :?
