This is, I must admit, my favorite columnn of each event. What will Stuart come up with next? Loved his awards. I have to admit that I am adding one, Best Improvisational move. Goes to Steve Mills, who found a unique way to sit on the diminutive seats assigned to Media. Please see below:

The concern in building a new generation of athletics fans is ongoing. Purposeful, diverse columns, audio, video, text based features that give you a unique view into the sport are what it is all about. Stuart Weir gets it. His love of the sport, his appreciation of the humans involved, in their success and failures, are what make his pieces so, well gripping. The women's 4x100m team in GBR does not get much of the recongnition that they deserve. Their strength is in the fluidity of their approach. Thanks, Stuartr, on writing this on your train delay on Monday.

Piotr is one of our favorite European athletes. We have interviewed Piotr all over, but especially loved his comments, along iwth Sam Kendricks in Torun, on the uniqueness of pole vaulters. This is Stuartr Weir's thoughtful comments on the hosts of the 2019 Super League.

Stuart Weir likes to give us a view of the major champs, from several view points. This is the GBR view. Nice to see our friend, Jodie Willaims, doing so well.
