Michael Roeger is up there with the toughest people on the planet. As many of you already know, Roegs just broke his own T46 marathon world record and smashed the 2:20 barrier along the way. We had the pleasure of interviewing the 'great man' a few days after the...
Rio not Paved with Gold, but there is a Silver Lining by Chris Wainwright for Runnerstribe.com I have seen my fare share of magical Olympic moments in athletics, dating back to 1988 when Debbie Flintoff-King won an amazing gold medal at the Seoul Olympic Games in the women's 400m hurdles. Since that moment...
I enjoy the majority of sports and not because I have a physical education background. For example, kicking or hitting a ball around can be quite a lot of fun and good to watch (and not to mention all the physical and psychological benefits that go with it). Why...
The Power of Consistency. This season has kicked of with a lot of surprises, with so many juniors flying through the finish line to produce some quality times so early in the season. How about the outstanding results from across all fields during the early stages of the Australian Athletics...

With the respect and admiration of the Australian running community behind him, St Lawrence has carved out a career that has seen him compete at multiple major championships; including the Olympics, Track World Champs and World Cross Country Champs. Now turning his focus to the marathon, in just his second hit-out he lowered his PB to 2:14, and the Tokyo Olympics is firmly within his grasp.  Runner’s Tribe caught up with Ben to chat mainly about his training specifics and how it’s changed to tackle the longer distances.
A column by Len Johnson Asbel Kiprop decides not to continue his quest to prove his innocence of an alleged doping infraction and suddenly all’s well in the war against doping. Except, of course, it really isn’t, the case exposing worrying flaws in the system and, publicly at least, glossing over...
There’s three days of Commonwealth Games athletics to go as I write this, but already I think I have my favourite moment. Forget the boringly tedious argument about whether it’s track and field or field and track - it’s just athletics, people – because my top moment of Birmingham 2022...
