1 Australian MEN'S 4 x 100m relay on Thu May 03, 2012 2:24 pm

May 3: International Track & Field Meet – Shizuoka (JPN)
4 x 100m relay (men): Josh Ross (Vic), Tim Leathart (NSW), Anthony Alozie (Vic), Andrew McCabe (Qld), Isaac Ntiamoah (NSW) (final team to be announced)

Australia is currently ranked 18th on the Men's 4 x 100m list with a combined time of 78.22s (38.69 & 39.53).

To make it to the London Olympics it needs to be in the top 16 teams based on an aggregate of it's best two times since January 1st 2011.

The teams ranked 15th and 16th are Korea (77.98s - 38.72 & 39.25) & China (78.02s - 38.87 & 39.15). South Africa is only marginally ahead in 14th spot with an aggregate of its best two times of 77.97.

Australia's fastest time of 38.69 is actually faster than the best time for seven of the teams in the top 16 - Japan (38.72), Germany (38.79), Canada (38.89), Ghana (38.94), South Africa (38.72), Korea (38.94) & China (38.87). Our problem is our 2nd best time of 39.53s is the worst of the top 20 teams on the IAAF rankings.

For Australia to get into the top 16, it would need to run 39.32 or better. They will probably meet Korea & China tonight & Sunday so there's a real opportunity to run the time to jump into the top 16. A time of 39.28 would put Australia into 14th.

Even without Aaron Rouge-Serrett the team looks pretty good and hopefully they can peel off the time they need to elevate them into the top 16.

Just saw on Twitter the Boys ran 38.84 to move up to 11th rankings (I think that was right).
Well done boys

Aussie men on track to qualify for Olympic relay

by John Salvado
Canberra Times
May 4, 2012


The Australian men's 4x100 metres relay team have taken a large step towards qualifying for the London Olympics with a good showing at the Shizuoka International track and field meet in Japan.

The team of Anthony Alozie, Isaac Ntiamoah, Andrew McCabe and Tim Leathart clocked 38.84 seconds to finish third behind Japan and China.

Combined with their best time of 38.69s at last year's world championships held in South Korea, Australia is now ranked 11th in the world on aggregate.

It needs to remain inside the top 16 by next month's Olympic cut-off to ensure a spot at the London Games.

And with five-time national 100m champion Joshua Ross arriving in Japan yesterday in time to strengthen the line-up for Sunday's Golden Grand Prix meet in Kawasaki, there is every chance the team will go even faster.

''The boys ran very well with the time close to the target we were chasing,'' Australian men's relay coach Paul Hallam said.

''As a team, they ran great and should be proud.

''To be honest, I thought they were a little conservative so, in Kawasaki, we hope to stretch them out a little more and improve our aggregate again.''

The men's sprint squad is the best-placed of the Australian relay squads to ensure Olympic qualification.

The highly-touted men's 4x400m team performed well below expectations at last month's Penn Relays in the United States.

And the women's 4x100m team of Melissa Breen, Charlotte Van Veenendaal, Hayley Butler and Jessica Knox only managed fourth in 45.00s in Shizuoka yesterday, leaving it 14th on the world rankings.

Canberran Breen was also third in the individual 200m in Shizuoka, registering 23.52s.

Victorian Alex Carew clocked a personal best of 21.27s in the men's 200m.

Another Canberran, Lauren Boden, won the women's 400m hurdles in 55.85s, while fellow Canberran Brendan Cole (50.23s) and Tristan Thomas (50.39s) were fourth and seventh in the men's race.

Aussie mens 4x100m relay team moves one step closer to London

posted by rtross
Runners tribe.com
on May 3, 2012, 3:49am



The men’s 4x100m relay team has moved closer to securing a lane in London after clocking 38.84 at the Shizuoka International Track & Field Meet in Shizuoka (JPN) this afternoon.

Anthony Alozie (Vic) burst out of the blocks for the men’s team, before the baton moved through Isaac Ntiamoah (NSW), Andrew McCabe (Qld) and Tim Leathart (NSW).

Their performance sees the aggregate two-time performance for the team improve to 77.53 (38.84 in Shizuoka plus 38.69 at IAAF world championships), which when compared to IAAF rankings issued on March 2, 2012, sees the Australian team sit 11th overall and well within the top-16 countries, who will make up the starters at the Olympic Games.

Paul Hallam, the men’s 4x100m relay team coach, said: “The boys ran very well with the time close to the target we were chasing. I haven’t had a chance to look at individual splits or the changes on film yet but as a team they ran great and should be proud.

“To be honest, I thought they were a little conservative so in Kawasaki we hope to stretch them out a little more and improve our aggregate again. Josh Ross will join the boys there and he will add some experience which I am sure they will benefit from.”

The event was won by Japan in 38.69, with China second 38.71.

That is brilliant result by the lads. Without Rouge-Serrett & Josh Ross (& Matt Davies who was has been a regular relay runner until this year) yet still ran sub 39secs. Congrats to Paul Hallam for getting this team to this level.

Ross comes into the team for the Kawasaki meet on Sunday and surely with the confidence gained from this result, the Aussies can go faster again and improve the ranking even further. If not, even at number 11 with an aggregate of 77.53 they can probably feel pretty secure. They have moved ahead of:
12th Germany (77.58),
13th China (77.58),
14th Canada (77.78),
15th Ghana (77.88),
16th South Africa (77.97),
17th Korea (77.98) and
18th Switzerland (78.18).

They would need to run 38.65 in Kawasaki to displace Japan in 10th spot. With 'The Boss' coming into the team to replace the number '5' runner, they must be a good chance.

Foxtel are showing a 2 hour coverage of the Kawasaki meet. Here's some amateur footage I found on Youtube of the men's 4 x 100m relay. Terrific race between Australia, China & Japan. Josh Ross just held the off.

AA has selected an Australian 4 x 100m relay team, but we only sit precariously in 15th position on the rankings and there's still three weeks before the cut off date. We should be OK but with plenty of opportunities for the European countries to participate in realy comps it will be a nervous wait.

European championships are currently being conducted in Helsinki. Therre's great coverage of the championships each night on Eurosport including plenty of the events live.

On Sunday 1st July the Men's & Women's relays are on (Sunday arvo - Helsinki time) and this will be the last chance for these European countries to record a time that will secure a spot at the Olympics.

With the Australian men's team in 15th position in the rankings and women's team in 16th, the 4 x 100's on Sunday are going to be watched with a lot of anxiety.

The relays are scheduled for (Helsinki time):
5.05pm Women 4 x 100m
6.25pm Men 4 x 100m

While I do't know for certain, I gather they will be on live on Foxtel Channell 511 And given Helsinki is 7 hours behind AEST this makes it 12.05am for the Women & 1.25am for the Men, Monday morning.

Just hope we can hang on to our spots.... Rolling Eyes

16 african champs on Sat Jun 30, 2012 7:17 am

Looks like the 4x 100 boys are in the clear. With African champs relays completed and South Africa 1st 39.76 2nd Nigeria 39.34 3rd Ghana 39.40. South Africa were one of the teams who could have jumped in front of us. The only other team that it seems possible to pass the boys is Taipei, who will run against the boys on Sunday. Even if they do beat the Aussies, they will need to run 38.74 , we will still hold the 16th spot. There doesn't appear to be any other countries that can jump ahead of us unless they can get Usain Bolt to run for them!!!!

There were head winds for most of the sprints, including -3.0 for the 110m hurdles. Still the 10.9's and McCabe's 21.66 are a fair way off what they would have been expecting.

Full details are on the International forum.
