Zurich Diamond League--August 28th,2014

Looks like Mr Thompson is coming out of whatever hole he was buried in and what a field to choose to return. Hope he's ready to fire on all cylinders.

First and most important question for me at least. Besides Thompson is there any other T&T athletes competing?

Ok no scene. Looking forward to Jehue race the most. Hopefully Kershorn will do a lot better than his last try in Stockholm

Well done to Keshorn!! I think he will be capable of a 90m+ throw by next season which should make him a serious medal contender at World Champs next year barring injury.
De higher a monkey climbs is de less his ass is on de line, if he works for FIFA that is! ;-)

90+m by next year??? You really optimistic.
Albeit his injuries he has only improved by 1.2 m in 2 years and he said he is feeling really good this year.
Another 4-5m+ is 15-16 feet.
He can't get much stronger in a year or two, so unless his technique is so poor that he can better it by leaps and bounds I don't see that level of improvement; it will take a few more years.

We will have to wait and see but I think barring injury that Keshorn has the potential to make a 90m+ throw next season.

He will definitely produce a couple more PBs next season and hopefully it will come at the World Champs given the right conditions if he is healthy and feeling good.

Very good field.

I knew RT wasn't making top 3. But I wasn't expecting him to be in the bottom 3.

Great job by KW. 90m by next year is very very optimistic.

Walcott breaks national record
Olympic champ second at Zurich Diamond League meeting

By Kwame Laurence kwame.laurence@trinidadexpress.com
Story Created: Aug 28, 2014 at 9:20 PM ECT (T&T Express)


Keshorn Walcott improved on his own national record at the Weltklasse IAAF Diamond League finals, in Zurich, Switzerland, yesterday.

The reigning Olympic men’s javelin champion produced the big 85.77 metres throw in the very first round of the competition, bettering the 85.28m standard he had established in the Commonwealth Games qualifying competition in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month.

Yesterday’s 85.77m throw earned Walcott second spot, behind Germany’s Thomas Rohler, who won with a personal best 87.63m effort. The 21-year-old Trinidad and Tobago athlete beat a number of quality throwers, including 2007 world champion Tero Pitkamaki, the Finn finishing third with an 85.12m throw.

Julius Yego, who beat Walcott into second spot at the Commonwealth Games, had to settle for fourth spot yesterday, the Kenyan producing an 84.71m effort. Czech Republic’s reigning world champion Vitezslav Vesely (84.04m) was fifth.

Meanwhile, T&T’s Jehue Gordon finished fifth in the Weltklasse men’s 400m hurdles, the 2013 world champion getting home in 48.91 seconds—his second fastest clocking this season. Gordon’s best run in 2014, 48.75, was produced in finishing second in the Commonwealth Games final.

The Commonwealth champion, Cornel Fredericks was again in winners’ row yesterday, the South African clocking 48.25 seconds to force American Michael Tinsley (48.31) into second spot. Puerto Rico’s Javier Culson (48.53) was third, while Dominican Republic’s two-time Olympic champion Felix Sanchez (49.31) finished seventh.

Richard “Torpedo” Thompson finished seventh in the men’s 100m “A” race, the T&T sprinter getting to the line in 10.26 seconds. Commonwealth Games champion Kemar Bailey-Cole topped the field in 9.96, the Jamaican finishing well ahead of American Mike Rodgers, the runner-up in 10.05. Briton James Dasaolu (10.06) and Jamaica’s former world record holder Asafa Powell (10.07) were third and fourth, respectively.

On Sunday, at the Tampere Games, in Finland, Josanne Lucas finished fourth in the women’s 100m hurdles. The T&T athlete clocked a season’s best 13.21 seconds.

Walcott smashes national record

Walcott smashes national record
Published: Friday, August 29, 2014 (T&T Guardian)


For the second time in little over a month, T&T’s sole reigning Olympic gold medalist Keshorn Walcott broke his national record in men’s javelin by nearly half a metre with a second placed finish in the penultimate leg of the IAAF Diamond League in Zurich, Switzerland, yesterday.

Walcott threw the spear 85.77m on his first attempt, which was 0.49m greater than the effort in the Commonwealth Games javelin qualifying event late last month. The 21-year-old, who took the world by storm in 2012 after becoming the youngest javelin gold medallist at the Olympic Games and the first from the region, was beaten by number-one ranked Diamond League thrower Thomas Rohler of Germany. Rohler also threw his best mark, 87.63m, on the first attempt.

Walcott was unsuccessful on his second throw but landed 81.11m, 77.38m and 83.99m on his subsequent three attempts.

Finishing third was Finland’s Tero Pitkamaki (85.12m).

T&T athlete, Richard Thompson, was also in action yesterday in the men’s 100m. He placed seventh in 10.26 seconds. Jamaica’s Kemar Bailey-Cole claimed a season best 9.96 to win the race, while Michael Rodgers (USA) and James Dasaolu (Britain) finished second and third in 10.05 and 10.06 seconds, respectively. Thompson is one of only two T&T athletes to have won a leg in the Diamond League this year.

He opened his account with a 10.02 finish in the first leg in Oslo, which was the fastest time. Michelle-Lee Ahye won the women’s 100m event in Lausanne (10.98) and Glasgow (11.01).

Jamaica then claimed the 100m double, with Veronica Campbell-Brown stealing the women’s race in 11.04 seconds in a photo finish edging of Ivory Coast superstar Murielle Ahoure, who clocked the same time.

Finally for T&T, in the men’s 400m hurdles, Jehue Gordon, who is ranked fourth in the Diamond League, clocked 48.91 seconds to finish fifth. Cornel Fredericks of South Africa won it in a season-best 48.25.

World record holder and Olympic gold medalist David Rushida could only finish third in the 800 metres, behind Botswana’s Nijel Amos and Ayanleh Souleiman of Djibouti.

Amos, who beat Rushida to gold at the Commonwealth Games last month, won the event in 1 minute, 43.77 seconds.

Souleiman finished in 1:43.93, edging out Rushida on the line by three hundredths of a second.

Elsewhere, world champion LaShawn Merritt comfortably won the 400 with a time of 44.36, beating fellow American Gil Roberts in 44.96. Isaac Makwala of Botswana was third in 45.03.

In the women's events, Dawn Harper-Nelson of the United States beat Olympic champion Sally Pearson and European champion Tiffany Porter in the 100 hurdle.

The Zurich leg of the Diamond League will be followed by the final event in Brussels next Thursday.
