2017 Birmingham DL Results: What the event really means...

| 0 Comments

The week after the London World Championships should have been a snorer. But, even after nearly 700,000 tickets in Paralympics and World Championships were sold, nearly 11,800 seats out of possible 12,500 were sold in Alexander stadium.

There were some fine racing as well as great field events. Barshim's 2.40 meter clearance was superb. A fantastic women's 100 meters, with Elaine Thompson reminding all who runs the 100, plus a PB from Shaunae Miller-Uibo. The Bahrainian Nasser, who continues to impress, took down a stellar field and Sifan Hassan ran Hellen Obiri down and won the 3000m in a NR and WL!

In the Emsley Carr mile, GBR went 1-2 with Jake Wightman leading Chris O'Hare with a swift last lap showing the world that GBR does produce fine milers. And the men's high jump, where Mutaz Essa Barshim went over 2.40 meters for the tenth time.

To me, the meet was captured by Tom Walsh, who after his shot put win told me. " I reminded myself, I am the world champion, I need to provide a World Championship performance even when I am tired."

Enough said.
