    Glasgow CG Diary: Nijel Amos upsets David Rudisha, by Alex Mills

    The competition in the 800 meters is intense, as David Rudisha returns to form and Nijel Amos aims for the form of his life! The CG 800 meters was fantastic last night! Here is how Alex Mills saw the race and where the 800 meters is going in 2015! - On August 9 2012 when David Rushisha elevated himself from super athlete to superhuman with a performance every bit as god-like and herculean as the acts produced by the Zeus and co, he could be forgiven for thinking that he would never have to worry about winning races again. His new objective would be to run against the clock with only time proving to be a worthy opponent.

    your adidas Moment for 27 August 2014: Nickel Ashmeade, by Larry Eder I like Nickel Ashmeade. He is a strong runner, and I have watched him come up through the ranks overs the past few years. In truth, the Jamaican sprinter has paid his dues. In 2011, Nickel Ashmeade was fifth in the 200 meters in 20.29 at the World Outdoor Athletics Championships in Daegu, Korea. In 2013, in Moscow, Nickel was 4th in the 200 meters in 20.05 and fifth in the 100 meters in 10.10, plus he was part of the[…]

    Dafne Schippers, " After Gotzis next year, I will decide" , by Larry Eder Dafne Schippers has a wonderful dilemma: does she run the sprints, does she do the heptathlon, or does she try and do both?In Gotzis this year, Dafne took third in 6,545, pretty darn good for 2014. It all changed the weekend of July 11-12, when, at the Glasgow DL, Schippers ran 11.03, NR and 22.34 in the 200 meters, for the NR. Two national records on one weekend! Dafne Schippers, 200 meters, 2014 European Champs, photo by PhotoRun.net The Glasgow Diamond League[…]

    The flight of Kate, by Cait Chock Kate Grace is one of the examples of how niche brands outside of footwear are sponsoring track athletes.
