What's the matter with this generation of 400m runners, clearly they are just relying on the numbers beside there name in the program, I noticed that a 42 year old was running in the red off 27m at trinity. Seriously how can this happen? These young blokes need to pull there finger out

Kim Collins is 40 this year and ran 9.9 last season. Age isn't everything!

I would say it says more about how Shane is still a quality athlete who works his ass off than anything against the younger guys in front of him. Also it was quite a small 400 which sees a lot of the quality backmarkers skip it.

Agree to some extent Tim I think Shane used to run off single figures so it's no surprise he still runs well, but these 18,19,20 year old kids are to reliant on big marks now, I realise this is the system but the system needs to be altered slightly. Maybe a system where when they are in a certain age bracket they are brought back some what to encourage a big winter of training to improve not just for ticks
