The IAAF World U20 Champs in Tampere, Finland lived up to its promise of great marks and we will watch the future progress of these youngsters...

I'm very fortunate to have knowledgeable information sources in a host of countries. They, like me, are very enthusiastic about showcasing the exploits of the world's under 20s in track & field (indoors and out), road running, race walking, cross-country and mountain running.

We all applaud when a junior athlete achieves at the very highest level, as was the case with Keshorn Walcott's unexpected win in the 2012 Olympic Games Javelin. I had been privileged to see him win World Junior Champs gold in Barcelona a month earlier, then sat spellbound as he repeated the feat in my old home town, London!

Having this well-designed website*, I'm now experiencing a steady flow of visitors, all of them with an ongoing interest in our great sport of Athletics.

After time overseas (March-November 2012), making contact with old clients and new ones, I set up this new location*, transitioning from Lionel Peter's website, (I had compiled its content for 12 years until late 2011). Lionel's health was deteriorating, and he died in July 2013 (see obituary under "More News").
