Athletics Weekly April 2024 Issue (UK customers only)

The April issue of AW looks back at the first landmark track and field event of the year – the World Indoor Championships – as well as looking ahead to the next two marathon majors in Boston and London.

Molly Caudery was one of the stars of Glasgow 2024, the Briton enjoying a breakthrough performance as she took the women’s pole vault title and beat a top-class field in doing so. We hear more from the Cornwall native and her coach Scott Simpson, about the personality behind the performance.

Josh Kerr was another athlete to shine in front of his home crowd and we look at the Scot’s 3000m gold medal-winning performance in the context of his continuing rivalry with Jakob Ingebrigtsen and the forthcoming Paris Olympics.
Elle St. Pierre enjoyed middle distance success, too, and the American 1500m champion discusses the welcome challenge of being a new mother and a dairy farmer, as well as an elite athlete.
You can pore over all of the key facts and figures from Glasgow, too, while columnist Katharine Merry outlines why 400m world record-breaker Femke Bol is such a formidable force to be reckoned with and, after Grant Holloway continued his astonishing 60m hurdles dominance, AW statto Steve Smythe looks at athletics’ great winning streaks.

Away from the track and onto the roads, Cathal Dennehy sets the scene for the Boston and London Marathons and examines the rapidly changing landscape in the distance.
Hellen Obiri is defending her Boston title and the Kenyan opens up on the learning curve she had to go through with the event, as well as the challenges of making a new life in America and the stiff challenge of going for Olympic gold.
Phil Sesemann already had his place for Paris 2024 assured and he talks through the training approach which is taking him from junior doctor to Olympian.

We also evaluate the importance of the World Cross Country Championships while the performance section features expert advice on the benefits of taking notes, goes inside the training process of duathlete Georgia Bell and also gets the coaching thoughts of former UK Athletics director of coaching Frank Dick.
