Steve Smythe’s in-depth look at the men’s performances in London
STEVE SMYTHE CONDUCTS AN IN-DEPTH STATISTICAL REVIEW OF LONDON 2017 AND LOOKS AHEAD IN RELATION TO NEXT YEAR’S COMMONWEALTH GAMES AND EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS
THERE may have been few championship records set but the athletics on show in London was exciting, very competitive and full of surprises on the track.
With the championships still fresh in the mind, and with next year’s Commonwealth Games and European Championships on the horizon, now is the perfect time to delve further into the events, crunch the numbers and look closer at how the stories which unfolded in the UK capital were written. Part one of our two-part series is a detailed look at the men’s events. The placings given are the European and Commonwealth positions in London and include athletes who have indicated they won't be taking part next year.
