  • Live streams/broadcasts for Saturday 24th April to Sunday 25th April:

    Saturday to Sunday
    • Multistars (Lana, ITA) - WA Combined Events Challenge meeting; Good mainly-Euro fields for this; 14 of the women have 6000+ PBs and Holly Mills is also competing; 9 of the men, headed by Adam Helcelet, have 8000+ PBs
    • Spanish Mountain Running & Trail Running Championships (Liencres, ESP) - Something for a change of scene! I've seen some poor streams of mountain races but LaLigaSportsTV usually do an excellent job with their live XC & track streams so I'm hopeful for this one
    Saturday
    • Asics BE(AT) Your Personal Best (Morton nr Poitiers, FRA) - 5km & 10km road races on a 2.5km loop; Good fields here with Moen, Iguider, Naert, Meucci & Charlotte Arter amongst those in the 10km; Julien Wanders & Sarah Lahti head the 5km fields
    • WMD-Night - Walk & Middle Distance Night (Milan, ITA) - Some decent races here including double Euro U20 XC champ Nadia Battocletti in the 5000 against a couple of good Italian-based Africans and Italians like Epis & Lonedo
    • French Meeting de Sélection for European Cup & Olympic 10,000m (Pacé, FRA) - Also includes M & W 800s and 3000s; Not sure who's in those races but the Men's 10,000 is headed by Schrub, Choquert & Frere in the Men's. The Women's 10,000 isn't as strong; This is not the French Championships which are being saved for August because this venue likes to put on a Highgate-style event for that; Incidentally Pacé will be the venue for the European Cup 10,000 from 2022 to 2024
    • Drake Relays (Des Moines, IA, USA) - WA Continental Tour Silver meeting; Good international fields here that include our hurdlers Sember, Porter, David King & Lina Nielsen
    • USATF Grand Prix (Eugene, OR, USA) - WA Continental Tour Gold meeting; A lot of big names here and some nice match-ups, e.g., Norman & Benjamin in the 400; Several Brits are competing including Laura Muir (1500 vs Simpson) and Jemma Reekie (800 vs Rogers & Bishop)
    Sunday
    • Hyogo Relay Carnival (Izumo, JPN) - Japan GP Series; Some good domestic fields for this which includes lots of non-relay events; I hope to be able to produce startlists in English for this before Sunday

    • I was hoping for live streams for tomorrow's Australian 3000m Championships (cracking women's field!) and the Mikio Oda Memorial meeting in Hiroshima. However, it seems they aren't forthcoming. One hour of the Hiroshima meeting is live on a satellite TV channel not available anywhere on the internet. Usually, this meeting is streamed by the Japanese Federation so maybe it's just late beng announced?

      If live streams do appear I'll post links & details, even if it's after the events.

      If not, the next major post will be tomorrow for the weekend's events including some NCAA conference action from Friday onwards, the World Relays, and national 10,000m Championships from Japan, Italy & Germany.

        PS. On Saturday there's also the Kansas City Qualifier - a mid-distance meeting including some Brits like Pratt, Bird & Judd.

    • Live streams/broadcasts for Friday 30th April to Monday 3rd May:

      Today's WACT Bronze meeting in Hiroshima was live streamed (except the 1 hour TV window) so I've included that retrospectively.

      Also, I'm keeping an eye open for streams of Saturday's Ethiopian Olympic Marathon Trials (unlikely) and the Nelson Mandela Bay Half Marathon, a WA Label race (maybe).

      Thursday
      • Mikio Oda Memorial International Athletics Meeting (Hiroshima, JPN) - WA Continental Tour Bronze meeting; Good fields here, including teen sensation Ryuji Miura in the Steeple (8:19 PB) and a strong W 5000 with Nozomi Tanaka & Kaede Hagitani against a number of good young Kenyans
      Friday to Sunday
      • Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC) Championships (Pueblo, CO, USA) - NCAA D2 conference; The RMAC is a strong D2 conference including Unis such as Adams State, Colorado School of Mines, CSU-Pueblo and Colo-Springs
      Saturday to Sunday
      • Northeast Conference (NEC) Championships (Smithfield, Rhode Island, USA) - NCAA D1 conference; Not as strong as America East below but some events still look decent
      • America East Conference Championships (Lowell, MA, USA) - NCAA D1 conference; I always enjoy these championships featuring a lot of solid D1 Unis such as UAlbany, New Hampshire, Binghamton, Stony Brook & UMass Lowell
      • World Athletics Relays (Chorzów (Silesia), POL)
      Saturday
      • Nelson Mandela Bay Half Marathon (Port Elizabeth, RSA) - WA Label race; There are international fields for this. Stephen Mokoka, Chele Dechasa (ETH), Precious Mashele & Maxwell Rotich (UGA) are amongst the Men's field and Gerda Steyn in the Women's
      • German 10,000m Championships (Mainz, GER) - Samuel Fitwi, Simon Boch, Alina Reh & Miriam Dattke are amongst those due to compete
      • Trials of Miles Kansas City Qualifier (Kansas City, KS, USA) - Some good fields for these mid-distance and short hurdles races; Like the Texas Qualifier in February, the races are aimed at getting Olympic Trials qualifiers or Olympic standards; Aimee Pratt & Lizzie Bird are in the "Olympic" Steeple, and Jess Judd in the OTQ 5000
      Sunday
      • Trieste Half Marathon (Trieste, ITA) - Said El Otmani & Oliver Irabaruta headline the men's race and Addisalem Belay Tegegn and Cavaline Nahimana the women's
      • Italian 10,000m Championships (Molfetta, ITA) - New sub-28 man Iliass Aouani headlines a decent men's field whilst the women's race looks competitive with the likes of Epis, Merlo, Lonedo and improving youngsters Selva & Arnaudo
      Monday
      • Shizuoka International Athletics Meeting (Shizuoka, JPN) - WA Continental Tour Bronze meeting; A lot of strong domestic fields here
      • Japanese 10,000m Championships (Shizuoka, JPN) - Strong fields as you'd expect; In the absence of Hitomi Niiya (already selected?) and Mao Ichiyama (Olympic marathon-bound), the women's favourite is 20yo Ririka Hironaka who debuted at this distance 3 weeks ago in 31:30, just 5 seconds off the Olympic standard. Sayaka Sato is a late withdrawal; Despite the absences there's still 9 women entered who've run sub-32 in the last year

      Next major post hopefully on Monday for an international 10,000 in Stockholm on Tuesday and, on Wednesday, 2 Japanese meetings and the Olympic Test Half Marathon in Sapporo.

      • For tomorrow's Japanese 10,000m Championships I have translated to English the top 16 "seeds" for each of the 'A' races (plus the legend Kayoko Fukushi). These startlists are linked to in the latest document above.

        Sadly, a LuckySpikes-fave, Sayaka Sato, has withdrawn from the Women's race.

        • Live streams/broadcasts for Tuesday 4th May to Wednesday 5th May:

          The WACT Bronze meeting in Osaka that was due to take place on Wednesday has been postponed until 1st June.

          Tuesday
          • 25 Laps To Tokyo (Stockholm, SWE) - 10,000m races aimed at getting Olympic standards; The women's race is pretty loaded with several top Kenyans from the roads and XC plus Gelete Burka, Meraf Bahta & Sarah Lahti; The men's 'A' race is kinda 2nd/3rd tier Kenyans plus the likes of Robin Hendrix, Isaac Kimeli & Napoleon Solomon
          Wednesday
          • Mito Invitational (Mito, JPN) - Japan GP Series; A decent 100m & Field events meeting with 2 lesser-quality mid-distance races too
          • ? Olympic Test Half Marathon AKA Hokkaido/Sapporo Marathon Festival (Sapporo, JPN) - Strong domestic fields including most of the Japanese marathon representatives for the Olympics; Until recently this was going to be an international race but emergency measures have curbed that

          • Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Championships (Grand Rapids, MI, USA) - Sorry, it turns out that this is Pay-Per-View

            • Live streams/broadcasts for Thursday 6th May to * Saturday 8th May:

              * There will be a separate post on Friday evening for all the other events streaming on Saturday & Sunday.

              The Arcadia Invitational High School meeting in the US is actually on Saturday & Sunday our time, so not listed in this post as indicated last time. However, until today I hadn't realised it's for California athletes only this year so I may end up not listing it on Friday either.

              Lots of NCAA Division 2 Conference Championships live streaming in this post. They don't have "Regionals" meetings in D2 but their national championships are on 27th to 29th May in Michigan, and will be live streamed as always on the NCAA website.

              Also, on Saturday & Sunday the very strong MIAA conference championships are live streaming and also next week another pretty good one, the NSIC.

              Thursday to Saturday
              • Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Championships (Shippensburg, PA, USA) - NCAA D2 conference; I've really enjoyed the last 2 editions of these championships. It's a kinda average-level D2 conference but the competition was good, as was the stream coverage. The commentators weren't bad too - they were enthusiastic and had clearly done quite a lot of homework on the athletes. Hopefully, it's the same this year; Although it's for just one state, it's a large conference with 16 teams. Some of the names are great too, like Slippery Rock & Kutztown. There's also Edinboro who are nicknamed The Fighting Scots!
              • Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC) Championships (Rolla, Missouri, USA) - Quite a good NCAA D2 conference whilst having "just" one team currently ranked in the national top 25 - Lewis, #14 Women's (remember, there's about 300 Unis/Colleges in D2); Again, I enjoyed watching this a couple of years ago
              Friday to Saturday
              • Lone Star Conference Championships (Canyon, TX, USA) - This is a strong NCAA D2 conference - with 3 of the top 7 nationally-ranked Men's teams and 3 of the top 18 Women's teams, such as West Texas A&M, Angelo State & Texas A&M-Commerce; Athletes include Benjamin Azamati (9.97 for the 100)

              Next major post on Friday for the weekend, including the European Throwing Cup, the WACT Gold meetings in Walnut & Tokyo, the Trafford BMC Grand Prix and decent international meetings in Ibiza and Pliezhausen (GER).

              • Lucky, i note that the Mt Sac meet is Bronze level, not Gold, according to Watchathletics which will be streaming the upcoming meet; as an expert what do you feel about the VPN live stream choice to watch track and field?? as opposed to the Youtube continental tour meets this year.??I thought youtube were callling the meet a Gold Meet classification; confusing. !I note that you have stated also that the Walnut meet is a Gold class meet.??

                  No, WatchAthletics have it wrong - the Sunday meeting is definitely a Gold meeting (and therefore should be live on YouTube with no geo-blocking for the UK). For the list of Gold meetings, scroll down a bit at https://www.worldathletics.org/compe...-tour/wct-gold

                  Mt Sac and Walnut are essentially the same thing - the venue is referred to as Mt Sac, the town as Walnut.

                  WatchAthletics don't actually stream any meetings themselves. They just provide links to the streams/broadcasts (but not as comprehensively as me! )

                  I have a paid VPN for when needed and it works very well, but I really don't need to use it often - as you'll see from my listings every week, the large majority are "no geo-blocking". I used to use the free Hola extansion in Chrome/Firefox for VPN-ing but they now only give you an hour at a time (they're trying to force people to pay for their service instead).

                  If you have any more questions about VPNs, just ask away.

                    Just before i opened your kind reply I saw that Watchathletics was indeed incorrect;It will be interesting how well Youtube cover the meet on Sunday; Mt Sac has always been a meet of note early season, and this year will be no exception; in any event i will probably end up watching Youtube, and then fall back to see what Watch athletics show;. By the way I noted that Watchathletics showed the two Namibian runs by their wunderkinds in rather awful out of focus coverage;the coverage was via Namibian tv, but it will be fascinating to see if they are let loose by their Federation In Europe before the Games. On watchathletics i noted that the two 100m sprints from Morrison and Thompson of recent date they endedup after slowing down right by the rubbish bins. Informal, what ??

                      You're welcome!

                      The YouTube feed for all these Gold meetings is always just the local TV broadcaster's pictures with English commentators instead. There's no point in WA filming it all themselves if the local broadcaster is doing a decent job. So, in this case the WA YouTube feed will be the NBC pictures with English commentators.

                      As I said before WatchAthletics don't do any filming or streaming of meetings themselves. They just provide links to streams/TV broadcasts. So, all you'll find there for the meeting on Sunday is links to WA's YouTube feed, the NBC stream (geo-blocked for us) and perhaps links to USATF.tv and Peacock who are showing the first part of the meeting (sprint heats, some 'B'/'C' races and some field events). Both USATF.tv and Peacock are subscription services.

                      So, you're much better sticking with YouTube for this meeting (and many others) because:
                      a) The pictures will be the same as what's on NBC (incidentally if, every once in a while, there's long shots of the stadium for a couple of minutes, that means the broadcaster has gone to an ad break and isn't filming any field event action during the break)
                      b) Why would you want to listen to the universally awful American commentators when you can listen to Tim Hutchings, Jenny Meadows etc? Yes, I know some people find Hutchings annoying but he's still a million miles better than any American commentator.

                      For the Steeples, 5000s and 1500 'B' races which are a few hours after the main meeting, I'll post videos of them here (hopefully on Monday).

                      Re Christine Mboma & Beatrice Masilingi, it seems that yes, they are being let loose in Europe! I read only yesterday that they are due to run at the Castiglione meeting in Italy on 19th May. That meeting will be live streamed on YouTube.
