It's so great to see the South Africans do so good. On top of the Aussie.

South Africa even more. Think about living on a continent where the whites are probably less than 2 percent of the population
yet they still win in sports. Not to mention the poor south african whites are being murdered left and right for the color of
their skin. So to face all of these odds yet still have the confidence and ability to go face the lions. Very well done indeed!

100% not only that but they are more than likely only 0.9% of the population there are only 4,000,000 or so in South Africa they have a significantly smaller population than the majority of states and still are very competitive in all things they do

Jake Doran, 10.20 (0.1w) and Zoe Hobbs 11.02 (1.3w) in New Zealand.

It's ironic that Jake Doran has been far better and more consistant than Jack Hale. The guy lost his confidence and never seemed
to be able to find a road back. He pulled out of the last race but this year hasn't been any different. He needs a new coach and
new training regime if it's not too late. So sad as he showed so much talent at such a young age. Would have loved to have seen
him progress than Rohan Browning has.

Wish Doran had a better wind today as he has been stuck in that range for a while. Still a fantastic time & espcially with no wind.

Zoe Hobbs is just in a class by herself. Hope next year we see some young ladies step up their sprint game & give her some company!

I'm going to make a wild prediction. I say Rohan Browning goes sub 10 wind legal at the last big meet of the Australian Season. At the
Brisbane Track Meet on March 25th you will see history. I don't know why but I just feel it. Hope some of the other guys step it up and
we see many new personal bests in the race in a couple of weeks time. Also would love to see a return of the Hale Storm but that is
not likely to happen. I will settle with a very fast race from everyone with Browning stealing the show!

I found both his times - 10.19 and 20.43 - on World Athletics 2023 outdoor lists, earlier today.
Now they're gone.
I guess the meet wasn't officially sanctioned, or didn't meet WA requirements.
They've gotten very strict/weird about this recently.

I'm sorry but something smells fishy. Especially in anti-white South Africa. There is only 1 guy that reports all the times
from that country to the IAAF and World Athletics. No matter how busy he was it's been a month. Even if they don't want
to count the races(complete b.s) , they don't even show the kid racing at all since Febraury 1st. So the races don't exist
according to the people that have the job to report all races even if they don't want to count them. This is so unfair!
They are supposed to show all races for the season yet he has none for that meet? Too suspicious for me. I smell more
anti white crapola which has infected the whole world.

The track, the electronic timing and everything looks legitimate to me. They will probably argue the track is 99 meters or
some other dumb reason. To get robbed of two huge personal best times is just unheard of!

Aiden Lippert, a sophomore at Cal, opened his season with a very good PB of 46.38.
We've been short of 400m runners since Jeremy Wariner.

I think white people are 8% of the 60 or so million

I' not sure how fast a learner Jack Hale is. Browning knows what to do and where he's messed up - Hale seems to think it'll be OK next run - and it isn't

I don't see Jake Doran being better than a 10.teens sprinter but I may be wrong since he's still only 22.
Still, if he, Hale (Hale does run a fabulous bend and doesn't have his start as a liability when relaying) and maybe Despard (10.21, -0.1) are running their best with Browning we should be able to duck into the 37's high as a 4 x 100m.
Unfortunately we don't compete enough in international relay races and then mistakes and nerves can interfere.


With 2 very moderate sprinters running the bends, Tortu (who is Rohan's sort of speed) and Jacobs running the longer straights, Italy got a 37.50 - so I don't think asking our guys to knock maybe 2/10ths off our 28 year old national record of 38.17 is too much to ask

That is horrible what happened. That is why the 4 x 100 Relay is always a crap shoot. It happens to USA and Jamaica. It can happen
to any team. Without enough practice especially.

Well at least it will make these sprinters angry and even hungrier for fast times this coming weekend. It's gonna be crazy and if the
conditions are good I stand by my prediction that Rohan Browning gets his first legal sub 10 my friend! I'm gonna think it and visualize
it to help make it happen. I really thought it would happen last summer. Just give me some warm temps, a nice tail wind and a perfect
start. I feel it. Let's go Rohan! You got this! :)

there are 2 meets up in Brisbane soon - this coming Saturday is the Brisbane Track Classic and then the March/April crossover weekend is the Australian National Champs to finish our season. Assuming the sprinters all turn up for both weekends they could have two chances to get things together.

Then on Easter weekend (April 14 -16) there is the Stawell Gift carnival for 3 days and some of the amateur athletes will go there to toughen up against the pros and maybe win some prize money

interesting new development there.
A woman in the 55-59 age group here in the NSW Masters beat the best 55+ shot put in NSW (possibly the nation) when I was there handling measuring duties 2 weeks ago. Now, no-one has anything against this other woman per se - but she underwent gender reassignment over 30 years ago, well after she (as a he) went through puberty.
Her style is rough as guts but on pure strength she beat that "best" NSW in the age group by 10cms simply with raw power. The true "champion" beat her in every other event that needed more technique and less brute force.
So Coe's announcement is welcome since this issue will be gaining much more prominence in our new "enlightened" era

We again had bad wind conditions for the mens and womens sprints in Brisbane, Australia today. No one looked good and
Rohan Browning finished in a distant 2nd place with a 10.29 -1.0 wind. He was last out of the blocks. Jack Hale finished 2nd
to last running a 10.45! It might be time for him to move into Rugby or something. He just gets worse every years sadly.

To Rohan Brownings credit however, he has not lost to a fellow Australian Sprinter in 33 consecutive races! Eddy Osei Nkeita of New Zealand
won the race and he is giving up track to go play football at Hawaii.

The 2023 Australian Outdoor Track and Field Championships started today. They already had the mens under 20 100 meters finals.
Congrats to Sebastian Suitana who won the gold medal in a time of 10.35! He has had a good season and he will be one to watch
over the next decade of so as he is still a teenager. I'm excited to watch him alot more in the future.

The 2023 Texas Relays have been going for a couple of days now. The last day is tommorow. Sadly Boling is only entered in the 4 x 100
Relay which Georgia didn't even qualify for the finals and the 4 x 200 Relay. Very slow start to the season. I would have done the first
relay and had him run the 100. He hasn't raced a 60 meter or 100 meters race all year long. I was hoping to see him run this weekend.

On a good note even though the wind was was too high Iowa Junior Austin Kressley continues to run fast winning his heat so he will be in
the finals tommorow. His second wind aided time in this range as he did the same in Florida recently. Too bad it doesn't count as a p.b.
Good luck to Austin in the Mens 100 Meters Final tommorow. He is one fast Hawkeye!

Rohan Browning runs a 10.18 +0.6 in the 100 meters prelims at the 2023 Australian Track Champs. All the favorites easily advanced
and the wind was minimal in most of the races.

I still for the life of me can't understand why they don't count the 10.19 p.b. by Armand Van Der Walt which should have been in
the top lists. He ran about 3 weeks ago over 100 & 200 meters. They counted both of those races. As an 18 year old he is so much
better than any white or black sprinter in all of South Africa. He wins all of his races by a mile. I've seen so many and never has anyone
come within 10 to 15 meters of him and much more at times. This is a 10.36 into a negative wind. The kid is 18 years old & he is going
to be another potential Lemaitre Type Sprinter. My only fear is where he runs and the hatred for the whites there. .

I finally found this. No other track sites even mention Amand Van Der Walts 10.19 or 20.43! Now I know why. It was
run at altitude. Glad I found this as I knew those tracks were legitimate but they are at Altitude. So to show those records
they have to add an A after the performance like this long time track top lists site shows.
