Ha, Dina Asher Smith has exactly the sort of past history and development the clinic craves when discussing cyclists. She ran sub 10.99 for the 100m in 2015 and 22.07 for the 200m, and her personal best is still only 10.85/21.89. She was a world class junior winning medals at both 100/200 at world and European champs. Her 100m time is 60th on the all time list and her 200m time is 148th. Marion Jones my ****.

Wtf are these poles on. Normally they dominate the field events but middle distance this year they've been really really strong. And in a pretty suspicious way too, they just seem so much stronger and faster than everyone else towards the end of the race.

Jakob Ingebrigtsen the 17 year old ran a 1500m of 3:52.28 on 26 May, which was the second-fastest ever by a 17 year old (only a now-banned doper had gone faster). Then barely two month later he ran 3:31:18, shaving off a whopping 22sec off his time.

Then over the weekend he completed a 1500m/5000m double at the European Champs..and wait for it, he did it on consecutive days.

What is this kid on?

At the very least he's on a training plan that is more diligent than your fact checking.

26th May race was a MILE.

Yeah there were many head scratching performances. Ingebritsen, like his two older brothers, is talented, but still...

While you are correct ( i thought the same when I saw the OP) that doesn't exactly disqualify the suspicion against the kid.

I hope Ingebrigtsen continues to improve as he reaches his 20s. Not because I care about his career particularly, just because it's going to be hilarious watching what the Africans come up with to try to beat him.
