That’s nuts. Torrie Lewis won Gold on her Diamond League debut!! Unbelievable achievement.

This is what she posted only a few weeks ago…

That is a massive performance because you are at the elite level when you are invited to participate at the Diamond League.

First time earning an Olympic berth since 2000 in the 100 relay for women is worth some praise.

These are the type of performances you want to see by Aussie athletes. You perform well in the Diamond League and this usually transfers to the World’s and the Olympics.

It’s a staggering time by Hull but we need to remember they have pacemakers at the Diamond league.

Like in all of her previous big races and all of the world’s fastest times. I don’t think that’s an issue in terms of the meaningful-ness of running that time.

People who dont follow athletics are unaware of the use of pacemakers. People are unaware that some of Diamond league meetings have stronger fields than the Olympics ir Worlsd Championship as only the best are in the field. So you can have a 10,000 metre race with eight Kenyans.
