DOHA 2019 MEDALS REVEALED WITH ONE MONTH TO GOThe following article was posted on the Athletics Weekly website.

Organisers mark milestone by unveiling the design of the world championships medals, which pay homage to the Qatari capital. The medals for which thousands of athletes will compete have been revealed with exactly one month to go until the IAAF World Championships in Doha. Paying homage to the Qatari capital, the gold, silver and bronze medals were designed by an all-female team and showcase the Doha skyline, which will be the backdrop of the marathon and race walk events. There are also illustrations of the iconic Khalifa International Stadium, which will host the championships as the event heads to the Middle East for the first time, with 13 different elements of athletics disciplines also weaved into the design. More than 2000 of the world’s top athletes will be competing for the 192 medals on offer across 49 finals during the 10-day competition, which gets under way on Friday September 27. “A medal is the symbol of excellence in our sport,” said IAAF president SEBASTIAN COE. “It represents all the years of sweat, striving and persistence required to succeed in athletics at the highest level, so the design of the medals must be as special as the achievement in winning them.

“Our local organising committee in Doha has done a brilliant job in creating medals that our athletes will be proud to receive as a permanent keepsake of their moment of glory. I’d like to have one myself, so I may have to come out of retirement.” Speaking on the final preparations and medals for the championships, SHEIKH ASMA AL THANI, director of marketing and communications for the local organising committee, said: “Having designs on the medals which showcase Qatar is a special occasion for the country, as so many people throughout Doha have played a vital role in delivering the competition. “A gold medal will naturally take pride of place in an athlete’s collection and they will be reminded of the competition being held in the Middle East forever. “The whole of Qatar is excited to welcome the world’s best athletes and we look forward to celebrating the successes of all those competing and those iconic moments at the finish lines and on the podiums.” The first medals will be won just hours after the championships begin on day one, with the midnight marathon taking place along Doha’s Corniche.

JUST RECEIVED THIS FROM GERALD – Some of our officials do officiate at televised meetings but all of our officials officiate at grass roots, which is why I thought this ‘thank you’ is appropriate. GERALD ALTERMAN received this letter from NIGEL HOLL of UK Athletics.

Dear GERALD,
We have come to the end of our events “season”, and I want to formally and “on the record” thank the wonderful team of Officials that have played such a pivotal role across all of our events this season.
The commitment, dedication, and enthusiasm every official puts in – to every event they do at any level I know, but especially to our Televised events – is superb.
I know that the team work being Officials, staff, volunteers, consultants, and other “friends” created a wonderful platform for the athletes to perform – and many of them did exactly that. I also know that many of the officials would have been among the last to leave Alexander Stadium – dedicated to the last.
So can I please ask that you extend my personal thanks to the officials involved and the whole of the Officials community? I have huge respect for the work that community does across the whole of our sport, and as I move onto (icy) pastures new, I will take that respect with me and continue to talk up athletics officiating as a wonderful contribution back to the sport.

With best wishes to the whole of the Officiating team – North to South, East to West.
NIGEL HOLL Chief Executive (Interim)

A WARNING REGARDING OPEN MEETINGS 2019 – I spoke to 2 of the organisers of open meetings, regarding whether there was a closing date for their meeting, especially as now entries are online only. Their response was when a meeting opens on the online system, there could be a 100m event that takes place between 19.00pm to 19.45pm, they would have ascertained that between these times there will be 8 races. Once the 64 entries for those 8 races have been filled, the event is therefore closed. Therefore, there could be a chance that an event could be closed 1 Week or 2 weeks before the meeting date. Therefore, please beware of this.

OJIE EDOBURUN PIPS RIVALS TO BRITISH 100m TITLEThe following article was posted on the Athletics Weekly website.

The men’s 100m on day one of the Müller British Athletics Championships was so close to call that the winner, OJIE EDOBURUN, did not know he had won for a few moments after the race. The 23-year-old was given exactly the same time of (10.18 -1.9m/sec) as ADAM GEMILI and ZHARNEL HUGHES but after a short, tense delay he was given the verdict over his more favoured rivals. ZHARNEL is the fastest British sprinter this year with (9.95), while GEMILI has run (10.04) but OJIE, whose season’s best is (10.08), turned the form book on its head to win gold. “I was getting ready to say ‘well done, ADAM’. But it came up as me being the winner and it was such an emotional moment.” A brilliant junior talent, OJIE won the European under-20 100m title in 2015 and under-23 title in 2017 but has struggled to make an impact in the senior ranks. However, he says a change of coach to STEVE FUDGE together with an emphasis on sports psychology to iron out demons and improve his pre-race confidence have helped him move on to a new level. “People often think seeing a sports psychologist is a sign of weakness but I think it shows you are doing something to become stronger,” he explained. On the evidence of Saturday’s 100m at Alexander Stadium, he has a point and will now go to the IAAF World Championships in Doha along with fellow automatic qualifier GEMILI aiming to at least make the final.

SHAFTESBURY SUPPORTERS AT THE BRITISH CHAMPIONSHIPSShaftesbury athletes had not only received vocal support from two of our top young athletes KACEY WALTERS and EVELYNE FONTEYNE, they also managed to seek out the BRITISH MASCOT, ADAM GEMLLI and KATARINA JOHNSON-THOMPSON which as you can see by the excellent photographs.

HELEN ISAACS TOP SUPERFAN/SUPPORTERThe following article was written by ROSALIND ZEFFERTT and subsequently published in the Jewish Chronicle on Friday 23 August.
If there were national rankings for athletics superfans, the name HELEN ISAACS would surely be high up on the list. Not only is HELEN a busy sports volunteer, but she has been to every Olympic Games since Barcelona in 1992. “I always liked athletics at school and competed in the throws in borough events, but that wasn’t really the start of it,” recalled HELEN, originally from northwest London and a member of Stanmore Liberal Synagogue before moving to Watford. “My mum and dad loved watching the Olympics, and the image of MARY PETERS winning the pentathlon in 1972 stayed with me for a long time.”

Helen, 56, was working as a retail merchandiser in 1991 when a chance conversation with a colleague about athletics eventually resulted in the two taking a road trip to Barcelona, and the pattern was set. So when London was awarded the Olympics, naturally Helen wanted to be involved. She juggled rehearsals for the opening and closing ceremonies with a six-month stint as a Games Maker, working in uniform distribution. “It was the longest voluntary role,“ said HELEN, “so we set the tone for the Games. We did all we could to create a great experience for everyone.”
Over the past year, HELEN has taken her volunteering to another level, qualifying as a field judge for Shaftesbury Harriers. “I was about to take early retirement after 33 years in retail, and I was looking for opportunities to do more in athletics than be a spectator,” she said. ”I knew the club, but it had never occurred to me to officiate for them until someone suggested it. I did my first meeting within a couple of weeks, and I absolutely loved it.”
She decided to specialise in field judging as she was already familiar with the javelin, shot and discus afrom her schooldays. “With officiating, I enjoy the variety of roles you get with each of the jumps and throws, and it’s exciting to know that I could be witnessing the next DALEY THOMPSON or JESSICA ENNIS. I feel privileged to work closely with athletes of all ages competing and performing at their very best. By the end of this season I will have my next field qualification, and I see myself continuing in athletics for a long time.”
It has been a little while since HELEN last took part in athletics as a competitor, but she is a keen open water swimmer and also holds a teaching assistant qualification for swimming. As the outdoor athletics season draws to a close, she is looking forward to volunteering at next month’s Para Swimming Championships, an event hastily moved to London after the original hosts, Malaysia, refused to allow the Israeli team to compete.
Also high on HELEN’S agenda is, of course, her trip to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, which she is currently planning with the same retail colleague who has accompanied her to the last seven Olympic Games (ARIT ANDERSON, now a presenter on the BBC’s Gardener’s World).
Despite having volunteered for many other sports events such as the Canoe Slalom World Cup and the Cricket World Cup, HELEN acknowledges that the Olympics is behind it all. “Without my experience at the London 2012 and the network it created, I wouldn’t have found out about all the other volunteering opportunities. That’s the legacy of the Olympics.”

TOKYO 2020 OLYMPIC AND PARALYMPICS SELECTION POLICYThe following article was posted on the Athletics Weekly website.
With the Olympic Games being held in Japan between the 24 July and 9 August 2020, and the Paralympic Games following 25 August to 6 September 2020, the criteria has been released for those athletes seeking nomination by British Athletics for selection for Team GB and Paralympics GB.

A WARNING REGARDING OPEN MEETINGS 2019 – I spoke to 2 of the organisers of open meetings, regarding whether there was a closing date for their meeting, especially as now entries are online only. Their response was when a meeting opens on the online system, there could be a 100m event that takes place between 19.00pm to 19.45pm, they would have ascertained that between these times there will be 8 races. Once the 64 entries for those 8 races have been filled, the event is therefore closed. Therefore, there could be a chance that an event could be closed 1 Week or 2 weeks before the meeting date. Therefore, please beware of this.

CURRENT DISTRIBUTION OF SHAFTESBURY INFORMATION Currently I notify members (by email) using “MailChimp”. The reason I changed, was in November 2017 “Gmail” put a limit of 100 addresses that users could send to in a 24-hour period, and currently I send to approximately 850 members each issue.

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward. There is one thing you should be aware off is that when you receive an email from me, the footer at the bottom has 4 options, of which one is “Unsubscribe Me From List”. Could I ask you not to select this as if you do you will be automatically removed from my distribution list.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF AN OLYMPIC RACE STARTERThe following article was posted on the Athletics Weekly website.

A former athlete himself, Chief Race Starter ALAN BELL is one of six Running & Athletics Officials who have the credible qualifications and experience high enough to start any athletics race in the world. With title of Chief Starter under his belt for the 2012 London Olympics, ALAN BELL is a man with quite a notorious connection to sprint legend Usain Bolt. Bell was the race starter for the 100m Final at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics Games, both won by Bolt. He also started the 100m Final at the 2009 and 2011 World Championships, the latter being where he had to disqualify Bolt for a false start. Bolt won both the 2008 and 2009 races in World Record time.

As part of England Athletics’ new Officials: The Beating Heart of Athletics campaign, ALAN BELL is urging sports fans to become running and athletics officials and, like himself, be at the heart of the action at events across the country.

Here he tells us what a typical day looks like for him…
My alarm goes off… very early! Living in rural Cumbria usually means I face a very long day of travel ahead of me depending upon which event I am officiating at. Being a Level 5 Official means I can be a Chief Starter at a smaller, local event all the way up to the Olympics and World Championships.
I’m responsible for… starting the race for the athletes. There are plenty of different officiating roles but this is the one I love. When I first became an official in 1975 (following retirement as an athlete due to injury), there was only one race starter in the North-East, so I jumped at the opportunity to be the second one in the region.
My typical officiating day involves… making sure I have all the equipment I need, including the electronic starter guns, packed in a bag and I travel off to the day’s stadium. Once I arrive at the stadium I register with the people managing the event, and walk the course. Even if you know the track having worked there before, you should always walk the course because things can change (e.g weather) or the demands of a particular event might be different. I then meet with the rest of the officiating team and we have a briefing so that we know what our responsibilities are for the day.
When the event starts, I am responsible for starting a number of races. I wait until all the athletes are in position on the track in their respective lanes, and I count down and set off the gun (electronic now) to mark the start of the race. I also need to ensure that there are no false starts. Throughout the event we will always support all the officials and make sure everything is running smoothly.
Once all the races have been completed the first item on the agenda is a good cuppa tea! We then all spend time together talking about the day’s event and just generally having a bit of banter amongst ourselves. The Officiating community is a really strong community and we all know each other, as we commit to travelling to different events around the country to play out our different roles. When I’ve reached the comfort of my own home I then like to reflect upon the day and think about how I might next develop my practice as a result of a good day’s work.
I became an official because… I was once a former athlete who competed as a National Standard High Jumper, until I ruptured my Achilles tendon aged 24. I was absolutely gutted that I could no longer compete, but my Club Secretary encouraged me to get involved with the events and support the officials managing the races. I wanted to stay involved in the sport that I loved so I jumped at the opportunity and here I am over 40 years later aged 68! I worked my way through the ranks by volunteering my time at as many events as possible (from local level to professional events).
My most memorable officiating moment… Well it definitely has to be being the Chief Starter for the 2012 London Olympics! There was an Olympic selection panel who received nominations of officials who should be considered to take a position at the Games. Of the 400 officials put forward, only 170 officials were chosen and I was given the title of Chief Race Starter. I have visited over 70 countries starting races for the IAAF, but I have never cried or felt as emotional until the closing ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics when I felt really overwhelmed at having played a role in the Olympics in my home country. I was also the Chief Starter at the race where Bolt broke his world record for the 100m event in Berlin – now that was also a real highlight seeing that so up close!
The worst part of my role… Sometimes you have to make the difficult decision to disqualify athletes, who have been training for this event for months, if they have a false start or lane infringement for example. When I had to disqualify Bolt for a false start at the 2011 World Championships, it was the talk of the event and people still ask me about it now. However we always have to remember that a sport’s credibility depends on its rules, and they must be applied consistently and fairly for all athletes.
The best part of my role… Is being so up close to the athletes and able to share in all their victories and successes. You could not get any closer to the action than us officials, and we get to see all the results and world records being made first hand before everyone else. I also get to work alongside my partner now! She was tired of coming with me to various events and watching me play my role, so she decided that she was going to train with England Athletics as a Starters’ Assistant, and she has just been chosen to work at her first major event this year which is incredible. There really is such a great level of camaraderie amongst the officiating community so it’s a pleasure to work alongside people I like and respect.
What makes a good official… The best officials are the ones who are interested in the sport itself. You should be there to help the athlete in their journey to producing their best performance by ensuring that they stick to the correct rules and procedures at events. As an official it is also your duty to perform to your own best whether it is a grassroots or major event.
Remember, without officials there wouldn’t be any results, PBs or medals for anyone from Olympians to those competing at your local town’s athletics events. I would encourage anyone interested in running and athletics to give officiating a try – whether you used to compete, want to make new friends or one of your family members competes and you want to be involved yourself – whatever your inspiration, take your Level 1 course and see where officiating can take you.
Alan’s top tips… If you are interested in finding out more about the Level 1 Officiating course, you can find out more from the England Athletics website. After you’ve taken part in the Level 1 course, then quickly identify local opportunities to work as an official. If you’d like any help doing this then contact your local COfSec (County Officials Secretary) and they will be able to set you up at an event. This is invaluable experience and where all the real fun begins as you put what you’ve learnt to the test.
Ask questions and learn! We’re all a friendly bunch and we want to widen the officiating community as much as possible as it’s vital to keep the sport going.
Buddy up with an experienced official who can act as your mentor in the early stages of your career.
Do as much as you can or want to – don’t over commit so the fun element reduces!
Keep progressing as much as possible. The Levels are easy to work your way through, and depending upon your achievement, you can work your way up to officiating at high level events such as the Olympics like me!

A WARNING REGARDING OPEN MEETINGS 2019 – I spoke to 2 of the organisers of open meetings, regarding whether there was a closing date for their meeting, especially as now entries are online only. Their response was when a meeting opens on the online system, there could be a 100m event that takes place between 19.00pm to 19.45pm, they would have ascertained that between these times there will be 8 races. Once the 64 entries for those 8 races have been filled, the event is therefore closed. Therefore, there could be a chance that an event could be closed 1 Week or 2 weeks before the meeting date. Therefore, please beware of this.

CURRENT DISTRIBUTION OF SHAFTESBURY INFORMATION Currently I notify members (by email) using “MailChimp”. The reason I changed, was in November 2017 “Gmail” put a limit of 100 addresses that users could send to in a 24-hour period, and currently I send to approximately 850 members each issue.

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward. There is one thing you should be aware off is that when you receive an email from me, the footer at the bottom has 4 options, of which one is “Unsubscribe Me From List”. Could I ask you not to select this as if you do you will be automatically removed from my distribution list.

TOKYO 2020 OLYMPIC MEDALS UNVEILED WITH ONE YEAR TO GOThe following article was posted on the Athletics Weekly website.
The one year to go milestone has been marked by the unveiling of the medals which thousands of athletes will compete to win at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

Fifty-six years after last hosting the Games, the Japanese capital will welcome athletes from July 24 to August 9 next year, with athletics action getting under way on July 31.
Read more: Tokyo 2020 timetable published
Athletics competition will begin with the men’s 20km race walk on July 31 and conclude with the men’s marathon on the final day of the Games.
An expected 11,090 athletes will compete across all sports, with 339 gold medals up for grabs.
Read more: Dual qualification system for Tokyo 2020 Olympics
The Tokyo 2020 Olympic medals will be manufactured using precious metal extracted from mobile phones and other small electronic devices donated by the public and the design of the medals is said to reflect the concept that in order to achieve glory, athletes have to strive for victory on a daily basis.
The medals have been created to resemble rough stones that have been polished and which now shine, with “light” and “brilliance” their overall themes.
The front of the medals shows the traditional design of Nike, the Greek goddess of victory, in front of the Panathinaikos Stadium, while the back features the event name and logo, plus the Olympic five rings symbol.

“The medals collect and reflect myriad patterns of light, symbolising the energy of the athletes and those who support them; their design is intended to symbolise diversity and represent a world where people who compete in sports and work hard are honoured,” said organisers. “The brilliance of the medals’ reflections signifies the warm glow of friendship depicted by people all over the world holding hands.”
The medal design came after a competition was held for professional designers and design students, which attracted more than 400 entries.

JUNICHI KAWANISHI, the winning designer, said: “It is a great honour that my design was selected for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic medal. I never dreamed that the design I submitted only as a memorial to this lifetime event would be actually selected.
“With their shining rings, I hope the medals will be seen as paying tribute to the athletes’ efforts, reflecting their glory, and symbolising friendship.”

BIRMINGHAM 2022 BRAND AND VISION UNVEILEDThe following article was posted on the Athletics Weekly website.

A WARNING REGARDING OPEN MEETINGS 2019 – I spoke to 2 of the organisers of open meetings, regarding whether there was a closing date for their meeting, especially as now entries are online only. Their response was when a meeting opens on the online system, there could be a 100m event that takes place between 19.00pm to 19.45pm, they would have ascertained that between these times there will be 8 races. Once the 64 entries for those 8 races have been filled, the event is therefore closed. Therefore, there could be a chance that an event could be closed 1 Week or 2 weeks before the meeting date. Therefore, please beware of this.

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward. There is one thing you should be aware off is that when you receive an email from me, the footer at the bottom has 4 options, of which one is “Unsubscribe Me From List”. Could I ask you not to select this as if you do you will be automatically removed from my distribution list.

SEBASTIAN COE SET FOR UNOPPOSED RE-ELECTION AS IAAF PRESIDENTThe following article was posted on the Athletics Weekly website.

A list of 45 candidates seek election to the IAAF Council in various roles – SEB COE is set to be re-elected unopposed as the president of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) but there will be strong competition for a number of other positions on the IAAF Council. The IAAF has announced a list of 45 candidates from across the globe who have put themselves forward for election to the international federation’s governing board. The candidates seek election into 18 positions on the Council at the IAAF Congress on September 25, two days ahead of the World Championships in Doha.

Those 18 positions include one president, four vice-president and 13 individual member roles. Of those four vice-presidents, at least one must be female. In addition to the 18 positions there will be six area presidents, who have already been elected, and two members of the athletes’ commission (one female and one male) who will be elected by the commission in November, making a total of 26 IAAF Council members. The IAAF advised that a focus on increasing the gender balance on the Council, with the areas conducting gender leadership seminars, has seen a 10% increase in female candidates. There are three women, including 1992 Olympic 400m bronze medallist XIMENA RESTREPO of Colombia, among the 11 candidates seeking election as vice-presidents. Ukraine’s 1988 Olympic pole vault gold medallist SERGEY BUBKA also hopes to be re-elected as a vice-president. He was unsuccessful in his bid to become president when he stood against Coe four years ago.

“We have a strong list of candidates from 44 countries applying for IAAF Council positions which demonstrates the global strength of our sport,” said Coe. “I am particularly pleased that almost 40% of the individual candidates are female, something we have seen reflected across our area elections, with four of our areas electing a female vice-president.”

The full list of IAAF Council candidates can be downloaded here.

REMEMBERING TOKYO 1964The following article was posted on the Athletics Weekly website.
With exactly a year to go until Olympic Games action returns to Tokyo, former Athletics Weekly editor MEL WATMAN looks back 55 years and shares his memories.

It is going to be a hard act to follow. The Tokyo Olympics are just a year away and the British team will surely be a strong one … but it is unlikely to obtain the level of success enjoyed at the last Tokyo Games in 1964.

Team GB’s showing at the London Olympics of 2012 was widely hailed as the best ever with four gold medals thanks to MO FARAH (two), GREG RUTHERFORD and JESSICA ENNIS, plus a silver for CHRISTINE OHURUOGU, a bronze (or an upgraded silver?) for ROBBIE GRABARZ and three fourth place finishes. But that hardly bears comparison with the 1964 haul of four golds (two with world record-breaking performances), seven silvers, a bronze and five fourth places./p>

Remember too that in Tokyo there were only 36 events on the programme, whereas at London 2012 there were 47 as a result of 11 additional women’s disciplines. I was lucky enough to be in Tokyo 55 years ago to report on the Games for AW. They were my second Olympics – and I went on to attend seven more – but the 1964 edition remains my favourite. It wasn’t just because of the British triumphs, although being of roughly the same age as most of the team and forming friendships with many of them helped me identify with their aspirations. No, those Games were special because I was privileged also to watch some fantastic sprinting, a monumental 800m/1500m double, a sensational 10,000m, an amazing marathon, a dramatic discus contest and so much more.

ANN PACKER becomes the first British woman to win an Olympic track title, breaking the world record for 800m gold. Photo by MARK SHEARMAN. The August 1 edition of AW magazine includes WATMAN’S full day-by-day reflection. Here are some highlights:

October 14

Shortly before the Games I interviewed MARY RAND and asked her what would mean more to her: an Olympic gold medal or a world record. She replied: “I would much rather have a world record than an Olympic medal really. To be best in the world, even if it was only for a day, would be absolutely marvellous. Of course the greatest thing of all would be to do a world record at the Olympics. Needless to say, that’s what I would like to do in Tokyo!” And she did! Her UK long jump record of 6.59m was just the start of an astonishing series as she reeled off 6.56m, 6.57m, another Olympic and UK record of 6.63m, a fifth round world record of 6.76m into a 1.6m/sec wind and 6.61m. Remember this was from a rain-soaked cinder runway and it’s not fanciful to suggest that with the wind in her favour on an all-weather run-up she might have jumped seven metres.

October 15

A second gold medal for Britain came courtesy of the late KEN MATTHEWS in the 20km walk. He judged his race to perfection. By halfway he was 24 seconds clear, a lead he extended to 1min 40sec by the finish. That walkers were still unfairly regarded as second class citizens in the world of athletics became apparent when Britain’s other three Tokyo gold medallists very quickly featured in the Queen’s Honours List but it wasn’t until 13 years later that, following a campaign organised by the Race Walking Association, MATTHEWS at last received his richly deserved MBE. To this day he remains Britain’s most successful walker.

October 18

The day of LYNN DAVIES’ long jump gold. After four rounds the situation was that defending champion RALPH BOSTON (USA), the world record-holder at 8.34m, led with 7.88m ahead of the USSR’s former world record holder IGOR TER-OVANESYAN (7.80m) and the young upstart DAVIES (7.78m).

As I reported in AW at the time: “The fifth round opened quietly with fouls by the Spaniard LUIS ARETA and BOSTON. Next up was DAVIES, who while not exactly revelling in the conditions was less disconcerted by them than was the case with most of his rivals. The measuring seemed to take an eternity but the delay was justified when the figures 8.07m flashed up on the indicator board. DAVIES was way out in the lead with the best jump of his life. TER-OVANESYAN had his jump to come; it was a fine leap but at 7.99 it sufficed only for second place. And so to the last round.

“The pressure was really on BOSTON. The tension was unbearable, not least on DAVIES, who admitted that he covered his eyes … and peeked through his fingers. BOSTON hit the board smack on and rose high into the air. It was a good jump, but how good? Again one’s eyes were glued to the electrically operated indicator. “8” flashed up, followed by “0”, followed by – joy of joys – “3”. The great RALPH BOSTON had fallen short and DAVIES was champion.”

October 20

In my AW preview of the Games I predicted ANN PACKER would win the 400m ahead of Betty Cuthbert, while at 800m my tip was another Australian, DIXIE WILLIS, with PACKER second. However, as WILLIS had to withdraw due to illness, PACKER therefore became my favourite … even though the rest of the media considered her a complete outsider with no chance of winning.

It was a journey into the unknown, yet PACKER raced with impeccable judgement. Sixth at the bell in 59.1, she was third at 600m in 90.7 and second to MARYVONNE DUPUREUR around the final turn. The Frenchwoman was still five metres ahead entering the final straight but as she began to flag so PACKER’S stride lengthened and her spirits soared. As the crowd of nearly 70,000 roared with excitement and the British supporters went almost berserk, PACKER rushed past her defenceless rival some 60m out and, with a beatific smile on her face, broke the tape five metres clear in a world record of 2:01.1 … becoming the first British woman to win an Olympic track title.

A WARNING REGARDING OPEN MEETINGS 2019 – I spoke to 2 of the organisers of open meetings, regarding whether there was a closing date for their meeting, especially as now entries are online only. Their response was when a meeting opens on the online system, there could be a 100m event that takes place between 19.00pm to 19.45pm, they would have ascertained that between these times there will be 8 races. Once the 64 entries for those 8 races have been filled, the event is therefore closed. Therefore, there could be a chance that an event could be closed 1 Week or 2 weeks before the meeting date. Therefore, please beware of this.
