Observations on the women's achievements at the European Championships
Winner of women's walk was 38, winner of women's discus was 32, bronze medallist in women's javelin was 41, winner of women's steeplechase was 32, winner of women's hammer was 32, winner of women's marathon was 31. Lots to be said for consistency and longevity.
BTW, winner of both women's walks was recently defunded by Greek athletics as they said she was too old to be competitive!
