Bahama Drama: World Relays Round-Up

The latest JumpingTheGun podcast looks at all the drama at the World Relays in the Bahamas from Ryan Bailey’s slaying Bolt pose and his twitter spat with Warren Weir to some crazy splits by the Kenyan men’s DMR team.

There was plenty to talk about and debate both internationally and from an Irish perspective. We discuss the Irish involvement and discuss the merits of their performance and the brass tax also: management and cash money.

There was no baton dropped on the road and track in Ireland although weather did play it’s part, and not in a good way, at the opening Irish Milers Club meeting. Nonetheless, this couldn’t stop some of our young stars from shining. Kevin Mulcaire ran in the rain undeterred to clock 14:08 for 5,000m. We pick out 5 young stars to look out for this summer. Tune in to find out.

We wrap up the road scene from Ballymote, Belfast, Tallaght and Limerick which brought up topics such as the quick-cash Kenyans and why we need to return to the olden days of road festivals – Ballymote demonstrated it to geat affect.

Mayweather and Pacquiao was billed as the fight of the century and we look at what races this summer could be hyped up to that level on the track. All that and more in our latest podcast. Do tune in.
