wow and a thread actually about athletics. great run apparently this was off limited build up due to injury. seems like he could go close to john browns previous uk record with a better build up/ more even pacing.
I think we can safely say that Andy Vernon was let down by British Athletics administration. I have absolutely no idea what UKA do and what impact they have, because it has certainly not affected the grass roots that I am involved in. Giving opportunity is what human beings must do for one another to facilitate the possibility of progress. This was not achieved at the recent championships. People need to have a voice and rightly so. Administrators are administrators and many of them have no idea of what actually happens at the athlete level. Opportunity needs to be created. That requires imagination and at times a wager on risk. Those who are bound by rules are not capable. Period.
