    I remember this woman back in the 80's and now she coaches elite triple jumper Teddy Tamgho, but since this era I haven't seen an ethnic French female short sprinterhttps://www.gettyimages.co.uk/photos/laurence-bily?sort=mostpopular&mediatype=photography&phrase=laurence bily
    . If you look at French sport in general, you would think it was the US but the Blacks are full blooded Africans, in fact the amount of amount of Blacks in sport is probably worse considering the population percentage is smaller than America.

    PS, this is the best result I can recall by a White female French sprinter.......
    PS2 I will raise your 5th place with this gold medal performance.....

    Marie Gayot and Celine Distel-Bonnet are the only names in recent memory that I can come up with.

    I am a track and field nut, masters aged sprinter myself. Because I was also a youth coach I have made a concerted effort to watch as much international track as possible and it is scary to see so many European countries represented by negro's from Africa. Are all the white kids in these countries being told the same BS as we are in USA and Canada, that whites are not as fast or faster than negros therefore there is no use trying? England, France, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Ireland of all places. Thank goodness for Poland, Russia and most eastern European countries for staying true to their race.

    I recently watched the replay on YT of Daphne Schippers winning the Dutch 60m championships in 7.18 and the majority of the comments were of how she is going to be replaced by the 16 y old negro that placed third in 7.27, no accolades for Schippers just how they want the negro to replace her. Well 7.27 at almost 17 is quick but a far cry from 7.00 and a long way from 7.18. Wait a few years and then see.

    Good luck to John Teeters in the US champs. Also looking forward to Jack Hale's 100m this weekend, love watching this young man sprint.

    Jack Hale wins in Sydney 100m 10.36 legal wind. He seemed to be struggling last 15m or so. Hopefully his times pickup in future races. Carla Mucci is the most ripped female athlete I have seen in awhile as well she is a very good multievent-er.

    Never heard of Donigian before, but I see that he went to the same high school as Matt Bruno (California HS Champion in the 100m and 200m).

    Kate Hall is the US Women's indoor Champion in the Long Jump.
    She also took 2nd in the women's 60m.
    A pretty impressive performance!

    Based on the heats and semis, Teeters should have been good for 2nd, or perhaps 1st. But he choked in the finals.
    This is not the first time this has happened to him.
    Teeters has always had the habit/strategy of running only the heats at meets, and skipping the final.
    But this strategy has failed him because he doesn't get the experience of the pressure of running a final.
    So when he finally has to run a final, he chokes.

    Payton Chadwick (formerly Stumbaugh) won the SEC Conference Championship in the 60-meter hurdles. again. the fastest female high school sprinter in Arkansas history (that virtually everyone, including the University of Arkansas, thought would strictly be a multi-event athlete at the college level) has become a dominant force in the hurdles. after winning the National Championship in the 60m hurdles then missing the outdoor season in 2018, it will be interesting to see what the outdoor season brings this time around. of course, the Indoor Nationals still await this year.

    wow, never heard of Chadwick before, talk about serious hurdle speed! She has a perfect physique for sprinting. Good luck to her in the NCAA Indoor champs. Looking forward to seeing her in the outdoor season as well.

    I've been enjoying the European Indoor Track & Field Champs so far. Here is a live link for those interested.

    In the mens 60 finals we have Volko, Kranz, Kilty and Zikos into the finals. The swedish 19 year old wonder kid Larsson just missed making the finals by .002 of a second! Finish teenager (18) year old Samuel Purola was a little further back but he is more of a 100/200 guy as he is is so tall.

    Here is the link to watch it live.

    Ewa Swaboda is the fastest women in Europe with Schippers a very close 2nd for the silver medal. :)

    Congrats to the fastest man in Europe and well deserved Jan Volko! :)
    Happy to see Van Gool get the bronze but felt bad for Kilty finishing 4th
    just out of the medals. In my honest opinion Kevin Kranz got screwed being
    the 2nd fastest sprinter in europe all indoors and he was stuck in lane 8. Overall
    we did good with our men & women winning 4 of the 6 sprint title medals over 60
    meters! So happy for Jan Volko. This summer is going to be special.
