It's so great to see the South Africans do so good. On top of the Aussie.
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 doSouth Africa even more. Think about living in 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!
Jake Doran, 10.20 (0.1w) and Zoe Hobbs 11.02 (1.3w) in New Zealand.
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 think white people are 8% of the 60 or so million100% 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
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!
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 happenI 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
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.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!
