From April IAAF has plans to change the athletics ranking system.

Quote
What's the change?
A new world ranking system - similar to those seen in tennis or golf - will provide a run-down of the best athletes in each event.

So in the same way that tennis' tour organisers, through heavy-duty number crunching, define Roger Federer and Simona Halep as the best players in the world, the IAAF will rank their stars.

It won't end the eternal bar-room debate, but it will attempt to provide an objective answer.

What rides on it?
Not just prestige. Qualification for IAAF events will move away from obtaining one-off qualifications times, distances and heights and instead be based on athletes' position in the rankings.

No longer will it be possible to bank on an early-season high-altitude outlier performance as a ticket to the biggest championships.

Fun fact:

Dane Bird Smith won a national U/20 title for QLD in the 4x400m as a 48 second runner.

He's also dropped a cheeky 3.57 in the 1500m as a youngster

And last but not least.... he can walk the 5km in 18 minutes. Faster than most runners can run the 5km, he could beat them without even running.... The bird can fly but chooses to walk.

Noah Lyles clocked 9.88 to take the US 100m title on Friday night. The 20-year-old now leads the world at both the 100 and 200m with PBs faster than those of a 20-year-old Usain Bolt. Our report: https://goo.gl/yctb12

Monaco Diamond League has been absolutely incredible.. WR's, mostly WL's, massive PB's for people.



almost seems like the track is short or something. everyone is absolutely flying on it. seriously don't get it.

the event that made me question it, was men's 1500m.. it was so damn fast across the board, that it almost doesn't make sense.

Was watching the Doha diamong league and am hearing some things, which I have mixed emotions about.

Regarding caster semenya, because of genetics where she has high testosterone levels, genes of both genders, court of arbitration has made a ruling that she should take medication to lower her testosterone to even the playing field. I understand that she is just way ahead of the female groups and this is good but forcing her to take medication if she wants to compete to slow her down and I don't know.

Sebastian coe something he said, somewhere along the lines: Athletics has gender and age and I am glad to hear the court of arbitration took actions to protect them.

If what the IAAF was doing was "good hearted", it wouldn't bother me as much. Instead, everything they are doing seems to be targeting Caster specifically.

Also, even the suggestion that people take drugs to lower testosterone, really bugs me.

Apparently Caster is intersex, so there's a legit debate to be had whether or not she should be able to compete with women.

However.. This targeting of Caster has been slowly building for a long time. They are trying everything to be able to ban her *specifically*. They chose events she runs in. They didn't even include short sprints, or longer distances.

I think the IAAF has handled it disgracefully.

As for whether or not she should be able to compete with women, I guess it comes down to the chromosomes. if someone is born XY vs XX, I think that pretty much settles it. I don't support the idea of changing ones gender (or identifying as a different gender) and competing in that new gender, I don't think I ever will. It makes no sense to me. To me it comes down to what sex you are born into. If you are "intersex", basically a combo of both sexes, but still have male chromosomes, I guess i'd side with the male chromosomes settling it.

So, if someone is XY, I don't think they should even be able to lower their testosterone to compete with women. To me, that option is crazy.

Also, seeing legit men competing as women, definitely pisses me off. That is twisted. I don't care what kind of hormone therapy someone goes through, shouldn't be able to do that - in my opinion. That's a completely different situation than Caster's.

Anyway, I like Caster. When I watch her race, I often find myself hoping she wrecks everyone. She's not even setting WR's etc, so it's not like she's dusting everyone beyond belief. But, given the chromosome issue, I understand why she won't be able to compete with women.

Also, fuck the IAAF.

lol.

my perhaps uninformed 2 cents. dno.
