Yes, TENN_ACE. Why not? She was out for some time because of the pregnancy, but now seems to be ok
BTW, I once competed against her while studying at MGU

She plans to make a good start in Birmingham`s World Champ AFAIK. I also do not follow track and field closely between Big Competitions.
In fact I wasn`t running precisely against her It was the University`s competition. She was a member of the men`s relay team of the journalist faculty and ran on the last stage. I for my part ran on the 3d. And she won the event for journalists, starting the 4th and finishing the 1st

ha-ha-ha

what an experience... I'd love to run against her.

I thought it was a relay... was 4X100 or 4x400?

congrats Irina
I forgot she was pregnant but it will be good to see her again.

She should go for the 400m Hurdles in Athens, but i doubt if anyone can match Yulia Nosova-Pechonkina

She's done 100m, 200m, 400m and the hurdles, i don't think she'll be able to handle 800m.

I hope to see her in Birmingham, I'm intending on going for one of the days (day 2)

Good luck to my favs

I agree, 800 is the toughest of all of them 9for me at least)

that's how I would rank them

toughest to easiest

800
400
100
200

fresh, you got me

I heard she was not satified with the 400hurdle results. With her long strides she could not get the right rythm and use her natural speed.
tenn_ace & fresh2flash what`s your personal best at 400?

I never actually ran 400 m. Even 200 m was not a common distance for me. 100 m at my best I ran 12.06 - not that fast But in fact I used to practice track and field in jumps. In long jump my personal best is 6.89, in triple jump I can`t remember exactly - a bit longer than 15 m.

...always hated 400m since the last 100m I usually just walked... but I managed to finish few of them with my best results under 54sec (I consider them equal): 53.7 and 53.76 (I retired from T&F right after that run due to the same injury as current Momo's)

my best on 100m was 11.93

200m (the one I loved) best result was 22.89

400m around 70 maybee
400m was far too short for me. I was a cross country skier.
We did many tests over 10 000m and i reached 33.15 on a very lucky day.

I was never a sprinter either, middle distance was more my thing.

Good luck to my favs

She says that she wants to do another major over 400 m hurdles. I think that's sensible actually. I reckon if she stays fit and gets her technique right she could do the world record. Pechonkina just isn't as fast between the hurdles so I reckon Irina could have her. I wish she had done it years earlier. She was a great sprinter but could never get past Devers, Ottey and Torrence consistently. That was a tough era to be sprinting in. Kratochvilova covered all the distances up to 800 m very well. I think Irina could too.



The above pic is from last month when Irina was promoting a new athletics initiative for kids who are living in orphanages in Moscow.
