    Commonwealth games chat.

    Cycling, athletics and yes that. A lot of shit appears to have been going on under UKAD watch.

    Commonwealth games chat.

    It isn't just the track cycling that UK have dominated in the past but now appear to be a shadow of themselves in. Lottery funding is still there, but the ongoing investigations and pressure from WADA and the number of UK athletes (from various sports) with shadows now over their heads would have them really watching themselves. They are no longer the protected ones.

    Southern Highlands Triathlon club would be able to point you in the right direction. There is an Elite u/23 squad coached by Brendan Sexton based in Wollongong which he may be able to join a few sessions with a few times a week. Maybe contact him, If he is interested in itu racing, at worst Brendan may have knowledge and be able to recommend a coach closer to home. brendan.sexton@triathlon.org.au

    Guilty by association?

    Any way... Nova was also an Australian Olympic and Commonwealth games sprinter. One article stated her daughter is coached by the same coach as Nova. A statement has been released by ASADA stating Jessica Perris urine sample tested positive for 3 prohibited metabolites.

    Nova's daughter is actually coached by Nova's old coach. That in itself adds a little more to the hmmm theory.

    Gwen running okay. New 5k PB.

    Shorter striding athletes have less disadvantage racing indoor tracks, Gwen has a long stride so I would expect an outdoor 5k would be quite noticeably faster for her. Remember a few years back when Gwen's training group raced the Aus 10k road champs as a hard training session, Gwen won that. I can't remember which Aus female was 2nd.

    So froome is a drug cheat

    FFS, I am so over weak arse organisations allowing this shit to go on. WADA need to tighten up the allowed list of drugs and causes for allowing TUE to prevent sport from becoming a total farce. This shit must be so disheartening for the athletes who compete clean, to see that the organisations they thought were on their side just bend over for the cheats. There needs to be no grey areas, if you need a drug you don't race, simple, if you need it in training continually, you aren't elite athlete material, get over it and find another career. The only exception being maybe Insulin for diabetics as I assume those health test results can't be faked like so many others.

    Comm Games Team

    Do you follow the WTS races? if so you would have seen Aus have had a man on the 2nd step of the podium twice this season over this distance, with a Spanish guy on the top step. Spain are not Commonwealth, so yeah we do have a very good shot.

    Super league is back

    She obviously chose not to, maybe wanted more $$. She was talking about trying to qualify for the mountain bike at Comm Games also, might need to get a few races there under her belt, girl can't do everything.

    Super league is back

    It looks like most of the top guys chose to sign and race, females not so much. This doesn't mean they weren't selected and approached, just chose, or were not available, to race. In saying that there are some dam good athletes there though.

    Super league is back

    It appears they aren't actually stopping anyone racing a month prior or post, maybe they just wanted notification, incase somebody started an event in direct competition to superleague format. Most athletes are flying in from Rotterdam, having raced only a few days ago. Also Gold coast wts was only a couple of weeks post Hamilton Island.
