    So happy for Hannah. She is world class without a doubt. She has proved it ever since she was a kid. Many young sprinters
    never go on to success at the adult level. She has been outstanding at all levels. I look forward to hopefully seeing her on the olympic medal stand some day in the near future.

    Andrew Robertson of Great Britain ran 6.60 over the weekend, beating Dwain Chambers who ran 6.67.
    That's about the same margin that Lemaitre had over Chambers in their recent race.

    How can he increase top end speed with those short legs?
    His turnover is pretty much set, his speed endurance is possibly about its peak - only leaves power.
    Tough for little guys anything over 60m.

    Lemaitre didn't run in that Dusseldorf meet.
    Don't know why.

    Scotland has a great history of sprinters.
    In fact, considering the small size of their country (6 million), I would say that Scotland produces more top white sprinters than any other nation on a relative basis.

    Kristoffer Hari opened up his indoor season running a 6.69 today. I don't know if he is going to run anymore indoors
    as he doesn't like to run over 60 meters. He is 19 years of age now. Hoping for a return to form for him this summer. Many
    people have forgotten about this very talented young sprinter. I feel he will have a nice year. Would like to see him get down to the sub 10.10 range within the next few years. Asking for alot but I think he is capable!

    Pozzi's race.
    He beats Ortega from Cuba who was the silver medalist at the Rio Olympics.
    Pozzi was a very promising junior in 2011 and 2012, but has had injury problems every season.
    But maybe this season, we'll finally see what he is capable of. :)

    Tony Jarrett, Brit all -time number 2 (2 x 7.42) may be catchable this season. Colin Jackson with 26 faster times down to 7.30 (WR) will take a little longer to mow down

    Karsten Warholm a 20 yr old 400m and decathlete from Norway, ran a 45.96 400m over the weekend.
    It's a national record, plus the leading European time so far this year, and the 2nd fastest time in the world this season.

    here's his PR 100H run ever from Diamond League last year - with good comments by the commentator and Colin Jackson.
    He certainly starts well for a man over 6'3"

    Andy Robertson won the British Indoor Championships in the 60m with a very nice time of 6.57
    Kyle DeEscofet came fourth with 6.65. Kilty ran 6.62 in the semis, but his name wasn't listed in the results of the finals.
    Andy Pozzi won the hurdles. In the semis he ran 7.44, which equals his world leading time of last week.
