1 Men's 4x100m team on Tue Jul 09, 2013 11:22 am


AA's High Performance manager Simon Nathan sets down the criteria required for the men's 100m athletes in order to be selected for the Moscow WC 4x100m relay squad.

London Anniversary Games – Men’s 4x100m relay

We have been able to secure an invitation to run in the men’s 4x100m relay at the London Anniversary Games in the 2012 Olympic Stadium. The stadium has completely sold out for three days of athletics (around 80,000 seats per day) and so this should be a great opportunity for our team.

A squad of up to six athletes will be selected for London immediately after the Brisbane competitions (selection 21st July) and (unless there are injuries) will include the three men pre-selected for the World Championships 4x100m.

Selected athletes who are in Australia will depart on the 24th July to join the rest of the squad and compete in London on the 25th. Selection to run for Australia at the London Anniversary Games does not guarantee selection for the World Championships.

Other performances, including those at the World University Games, will be considered in the final World Championships selection which will be made on the 29th July 2013.

McCabe missed check in for the Heats but ran final by Invitation.

Conditions were perfect! With Hough running 10.50 at World Unis it makes for an interesting selection process for the relay team

Thanks Wallsy, much appreciated.

Josh Ross is a certainty. Who are the rest: Leathart, Geddes, Hammond, maybe Hough & McCabe?

Where is Ntiamoah at?

Anthony Alozie ran in a 100m race in Ljubljana Slovenia on the weekend, winning the B Final in 10.46. (W: -0.2).

He had earlier run 2nd in his heat in 10.56 (0.0).

Alozie also ran a PB in the 200m of 21.43 (0.9) to finish 2nd in the B race behind Masashi Eriguchi from Japan who ran 21.05.

Looks to be eight contenders for the Australian 4x100m relay team.

Joshua Ross
Tim Leathart
Jarrod Geddes
Jake Hammond
Andrew McCabe
Mitch Williams-Swain
Isaac Ntiahmoah
Anthony Alozie

Very competitive group and outside of the (pre-selected) top three, it's a difficult task to select the remaining squad members. All have legitimate claims.

In terms of how the team should probably be set up - they (selectors) would have to look at it from a leg by leg basis. ie: What athlete is the best available option for that particular leg.

10 Re: Men's 4x100m team on Wed Jul 24, 2013 9:56 am


Chris Wainwright - one of the best stats men in Australian athletics has published his views on the men's 4x100m team.

The men’s 4x100m will of great interest with the final squad for Moscow still to be announced (note: the final team will be announced after July 29). Many of our sprinters trying to force their way onto the squad have been competing in Brisbane (Mitchell Williams-Swain, Jake Hammond, Jarrod Geddes and Leathart). The latest competition on Saturday saw another close race, with only 0.07sec separating the top-4 athletes:

Men’s 100m (wind: -0.2)
1 Leathart, Tim 24 Nsw 10.49
2 Geddes, Jarrod 19 Nsw 10.50
3 Hammond, Jake 22 Nsw 10.52
4 Williams-Swain, Mitchell 21 Gcv 10.56

The important note to make out of the race was Hammond defeating Williams-Swain, although a week prior (see below) Williams-Swain defeated Isaac Ntiamoah – who is also in contention to be part of the 6 man squad for Moscow.

Men’s 100m (wind: -0.9)
1 Leathart, Tim 24 Nsw 10.51
2 Williams-Swain, Mitchell 21 Gcv 10.59
3 Ntiamoah, Isaac 31 Nsw 10.62
4 Mccabe, Andrew 23 Int 10.69

Then to throw even more confusion into the mix, Hammond was able to defeat Geddes at the DownUnder meeting on July 7 – running 10.54s (-0.1) to Geddes (10.57s). Hammond also recorded a very solid 10.45s (-0.2) in his heat at the same meeting.

Then you can’t totally discount Nicholas Hough – who ran 10.53 (+0.3) (heat), 10.47s (-0.4) (QF) and 10.50s (-0.2) (SF) at the World University Games. Although Hough was only the 6th Australian across the line in the final of the 100m at the National Championships , which could also play it’s part in the naming of the final squad for Moscow (note: In Sydney, Hammond missed the final and Alozie also missed after being DQ in his semi final).

2013 National Men’s 100m Final (wind: -1.3m/s) – 13th April
1. Joshua Ross AUS 9 Feb 81 10.34s
2. Tim Leathart AUS 22 Sep 89 10.40s
3. Joseph Millar NZL 24 Sep 92 10.42s
4. Jarrod Geddes AUS 24 Feb 94 10.43s
5. Mitchell Williams-Swain AUS 5 Jan 92 10.46s
6. Isaac Ntiamoah AUS 10 Mar 84 10.49s
7. Nicholas Hough AUS 20 Oct 93 10.55s
8. Tom Gamble AUS 25 Nov 91 10.57s
9. Patrick Fakiye AUS 1 Feb 91 10.62s

Alozie recently ran an impressive 10.39s (+0.4) in Bottrop, Germany (July 19), so would be one of the favourites to make the squad based purely on recent form. So if you add Alozie to the already named athletes of Ross, Leathart and Geddes you have two spots left open – which will be contested between Williams-Swain (PB of 10.25s set this year in Melbourne), Jake Hammond (PB of 10.49s and has returned to the track in good form after hamstring issues), Isaac Ntiamoah (PB of 10.35s and SB of 10.40s) and Nicholas Hough (PB of 10.39s set this year in Melbourne).

Then just to throw in a final wild card, we have the 2012 Olympian in Andrew McCabe – who ran the final where Australia placed 7th in 38.43s (after previously equalling the Australian Record of 38.17s in the heats). In London the order was Alozie, Ntiamoah, McCabe and Ross, a quartet that could easily be joined by Leathart and Geddes to make the final squad for Moscow.

London Diamond League
Saturday 27th July 2013

Men's 4 x 100m Relay


Aust team: Josh Ross, Tim Leathart, Jarrod Geddes and (I believe) Andrew McCabe who is heading to London.
I imagine Anthony Alozie would also be in the mix.

The World Champs squad won't be finalised until 29th July.

13 Re: Men's 4x100m team on Sun Jul 28, 2013 2:05 am


London DL 4x100
2 FRANCE 38.45
3 CANADA 38.58
5 GREAT BRITAIN '2' 38.77
ALL STARS, GBR'1' & Germany DNF

Terrific performance with an inspiring start by Tim Leathart who passed to Josh Ross and seemed to put distance on the Germans & French. McCabe ran well to set Jarrod Geddes up and another slick baton change put Australia in the mix with the teams behind Racers who had Usain Bolt getting the baton from Warren Weir.

Very encouraging performance which will give the lads a lot of confidence going into the Word Champs.
