Hamburg and commonwealth games selection

Recommended Posts

beaten    33

Anyone watch this, Ashleigh and Birtwhistle both claimed silver medals but already had their qualification wrapped up after Gold Coast. This left the spots open to the 2nd place Aus if they were inside the top 10, McShane grabbed 8th securing her selection. The mens race was another story with the next Aus man finishing way back, Hauser finishing in 20th was next best, Royle 25th and others further back. This will leave 2 mens spots still open, and up to selectors for the discretionary selection.

That always goes well :)

Be interesting to see how it plays out, no one really standing up yet.

Royle hasn't had a good race since his injury, has he?

 Not since no, and how long since last one depends what you class as good, 9th in Rio?, last really good result was Leeds over 12 months ago. Hopefully can pull something out in next couple races. Bailey seemed be going ok, around top ten then suddenly disappeared and finished way back. He qualified for Rio even though tearing calf during race, so normally can fight through a lot.

Did Berg's mate retire too soon?

I just watched the Mixed Relay. Great race and Birtwhistle was outstanding. A great addition for the Olympics to have a Mixed Relay race. I know that GBR will be stronger, but I think the Aussies will be a strong medal prospect.

Another 2nd for Birtwhistle in Edmonton behind Mola. But outran Gomez, Brownlee and Murray.

Actually thought he was about to win and sprinted down the blue carpet in the lead, then realised he had another lap to go.

I thought that would been the finish of his race right there, that last 1700m must been bloody painful,
