        Sadly, no freebie repeats for the Gabarone meet on VP Xtra next week on my EPG…..live Darts on the day.

        What a pity MultiStars is not live streamed anywhere. It's not on RAI TV. Only thing I can find is a YouTube channel called Vincent Sports with a non-existent link below. :-(

        Yep, thanks.

        Multistars wasn't streamed last year either. However, the 2 or 3 editions previous to that had been streamed.

        Yes, I didn't include it because the fields aren't that good. Everyone seems to be turning up to the Sprints & Relays meeti in Florence on May 7th instead, including a good Men's GB relay team.

    • Added to the bottom of the latest document linked 3 posts above is tomorrow's (Monday) ...

      Corsa International Oderzo Città Archeologica (Oderzo, ITA) - International road races; This is another of those races with laps through the old town that Italy does so well. This year the fields are all European (by design or not?) but it's a refreshing change. In the Women's 5km Luiza Gega and Hungary's 5000/Steepler, Viktoria Wagner-Gyurkes, face a good domestic field that includes Ludovica Cavalli (8:44 3000 this winter), Palmero, Lonedo, Gemetto & Majori. In the Men's 10km a good cast of Italians including Chiappinelli, Neka Crippa, Selvarolo & El Mazoury race against Istvan Szogi (HUN; 3:36 1500 PB).​

      • Live streams/broadcasts for Wednesday 3rd May to Thursday 4th May:

        This is a very busy week for Japan GP meetings with their national championships now less than 4 weeks away. They also have another 2 GP meetings on Friday and the weekend.

        Wednesday
        • Shizuoka International Athletics Meet (Fukuroi, JPN) - WA Continental Tour Bronze meeting; Japan GP series; There's pretty good fields here in many of the events and the Men's 400 Hurdles looks like one of the stand-out events with a load of 48 & 49 second athletes, including two from Taipei. The meeting's international entrants come from 8 other countries including GB's Jade Lally, Aussies, a couple of good Sri Lankans and two Cypriot throwers
        Wednesday to Friday
        • Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC) Championships (Ashland, OH, USA) - NCAA D2 conference; Whilst only Findlay are nationally ranked in the Top 25 (# 12 Women and # 24 Men) this is one of the better D2 conferences, also featuring good Universities like Ashland, Tiffin, Hillsdale & Walsh
        Thursday
        • Golden Games in Nobeoka incl Japanese 10,000m Trials (Nobeoka, JPN) - 5000m & 10,000m; Japan GP series; This is always a super little meeting, known for its 5000m racing and made even better this year with the addition of the Japanese 10,000m Trials. The trials are for the Budapest Worlds but also for the Asian Championships in mid-July and the Asian Games in late September. So, even finishing 5th or 6th here should result in a good chance of representing Japan in a continental champs this year. In contrast to most of the Japanese GP meetings which take place in big, cavernous stadiums, the folk of Nobeoka pack this little stadium out and most are right next to the track, creating a great atmosphere and making a right racket by banging on the trackside advertising boards throughout the races. The 10,000s are last on the programme but I will start with them ... The Women's race is definitely the more interesting of the two. It's a small but quality field of 9 athletes and I believe 3 women will be aiming for sub-30:40 (the Budapest standard). I don't think there's pacemakers but Wavelight is being used and it's going to be set for 30:40 (there's only one set of pacing lights in the 10,000s but three sets in all the 5000s). Rino Goshima and Tomoka Kimura ran 30:55 and 31:01 at the Castellón 10k in February and Ririka Hironaka is also racing here - she already has the standard from Eugene. Goshima & Kimura are team-mates on the Shiseido team and so, I imagine, will try to share the pace. Hironaka can just tuck in if she wants. It's a very long shot for Goshima & Kimura though. Only 2 Japanese women have ever broken 30:40 - Hitomi Niiya & Hironaka (just). But, if they don't hit the standard it's not necessarily over for them. I reckon that as many as 6 of the 8 Cross Country qualifiers for the Worlds 10,000 won't take their places and so that opens up a some places by World Rankings. If Goshima & Kimura can run sub-31 that will have them in strong contention to qualify, what with their fast road times too. Other interesting starters are Rika Kaseda who is already picked for the World Champs Marathon but she may fancy the 10,000 at one of the Asian events, the very talented 20yo Haruka Kokai, Momoka Kawaguchi & Wakana Itsuki. I really hope those latter 2 can get picked for one of the Asian events - they're real troopers and for Itsuki it would be a first national vest. In the Men's race there's 6 Japanese men with sub-27:40 PBs but the Wavelight is being set for 27:55. No Japanese man has ever run the 27:10 standard for Worlds and that field is already looking pretty full so possibly there won't be any qualifiers by World Rankings, which likely explains the modest target pace here. So, the Japanese men here are just racing for places on the Asian event teams. Right, let's talk about the Men's 5000 'B' race which is effectively the 'A' race - Jacob Krop (making a rare appearance for his corporate team), Eugene 10,000 silver medalist Stanley Waithaka, Richard Etir (27:06 10,000 last week), Richard Kimunyan, Hyuga Endo, Evans Keitany, Jonathan Ndiku ... I could go on and on, this field is bonkers! The Wavelight is being set 13:05 for that race and I hope they follow it and maybe get some under 13. The Men's 'C' race could be pretty sharp too. The line-up for the Women's 5000 'A' race is really nice. There's some good young Kenyans headed by Naomi Muthoni Kariuki & Judy Jepngetich (both 14:50 PBs) plus a number of in-form Japanese athletes such as Misaki Hayashida, Kazuna Kanetomo, Nagisa Shimotabira, Risa Yamazaki & Sairi Maeda. if you've been reading my reports in the 2023 OUTdoors thread you might recognise their names - I've mentioned them all in the last 4 weeks (Kanetomo twice!) precisely because they've all run very well lately. Kazuna Kanetomo is fun to watch - she's tiny but bold and "gets after it". The Wavelights are set for 14:50, 15:10 & 15:20 in that race and I think there could be at least a couple of significant breakthroughs by Japanese athletes
        Thursday to Saturday
        • Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC) Championships (Rolla, Missouri, USA) - NCAA D2 conference; There's no national Top 25 teams here and it's not as strong as the G-MAC above but it's still a decent conference (around average for D2?) with teams such as Lewis, Missouri S&T, Cedarville & Indianapolis
        All the details and links at https://www.dropbox.com/s/35xjyvr1if...05-04.odt?dl=0

        Next major post on Thursday evening for Friday's action including the Doha Diamond League, the Mito Invitational (Japan GP), the Meeting Citta' di Conegliano in Italy and the start of a week of good action in Brazil.​

        • Live streams/broadcasts for Friday 5th May:

          Friday
          • Ongoing Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC) Championships (Ashland, OH, USA) - NCAA D2 conference; See the post above
          • Mito Invitational Athletics (Mito, JPN) - Japan GP series; This is a bit of a strange one with the only senior track events being 100m & 1500m. There's 9 field events though, some of decent quality. Overall though, it's not one of the stronger Japan GP meetings
          • Doha Diamond League (Doha, QAT) - Welcome back and it's really loaded!
          • Meeting Citta' di Conegliano (Conegliano, ITA) - Like the Mito Invitational above this is not one of Italy's stronger live streamed meetings. However, there's still some quality athletes involved. Osama Zoghlami goes in the Men's 5000 against Celestin Ndikumana (BDI) & GB's Adam Clarke. There's a few Slovenians here, including Klara Lukan in the 3000 vs Emeline Imanizabayo (Rwanda) and, in the 800, good youngster Veronika Sadek goes against Joyce Mattagliano. Triple Jumper Ottavio Cestonaro is in the Long Jump
          Friday to Saturday
          • Ongoing Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC) Championships (Rolla, Missouri, USA) - NCAA D2 conference; See the post above
          • Troféu Adhemar Ferreira da Silva (Bragança Paulista, BRA) - There's no startlists out for this yet but it looks like there'll be a decent amount of strong domestic athletes getting a sharpener in before the inernational meetings in Brazil on Sunday and Wednesday. For instance, Thiago Moura in the HJ, Rosângela Santos in the 100, Chayenne Pereira in the W 400 & 400H and Tiffani Marinho in the 400 also. There's pretty much a full programme of events over the 4 sessions

            University of Birmingham Track & Field Series - Meet 1 incl BMC Gold Standard meeting (Birmingham, GBR) - The main events are the BMC races, in particular the Women's 3000 which includes Megan Keith, Innes Fitzgerald, Grace Carson, Poppy Tank & Ellie Wallace. The Men's 800 'A' race looks pretty good too with Sam Reardon & Kane Elliott. There's also some very good athletes dotted around some of the non-BMC events such as Cameron Fillery & Holly Mills (LJ)​

          • Live streams/broadcasts for events starting on Thursday 11th May:

            Thursday to Sunday
            • Kantō Region University Championships (Sagamihara, JPN) - The Kantō region (the Greater Tokyo area) contains over a third of Japan's population and so these championships are pretty good quality. There's good fields in many of the events. For examples, star steepler Ryuji Miura goes in the 5000 but he probably won't have it all his own way since there's several faster athletes also entered. The Women's 5000 includes 2 current collegiate champions, 5000m champ Sarah Wanjiru and 10,000m champ Risa Yamazaki who ran 2 seconds faster than Wanjiru's PB at the Nobeoka meeting last week. There's also a number of other good athletes entered in this race. Both Yamazaki & Wanjiru are also entered in the 10,000
            Thursday to Saturday
            • The Summit League Conference Championships (Fargo. ND, USA) - NCAA D1 conference; The quality here is around about average for a D1 conference (maybe a bit below) and it includes all the Dakota universities

              • Kansai Region Corporate Championships (Naruto, JPN) - Amongst the prefectures in this region are Osaka, Kyoto & Hyōgo so this is a good quality championships with some pretty loaded fields. In most events there's a very good athlete or two and in some there's several. For example, in the Women's 10,000, amongst a deep field there's Yuka Ando, Sairi Maeda, Hina Yanagitani, Natsuki Omori, Honoka Tanaike and # 1 steepler Yuno Yamanaka making her 10,000 debut after a 15:33 5000 PB at Nobeoka last week

              • Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Championships (Slippery Rock, PA, USA) - NCAA D2 conference; Although this conference only has one nationally Top 25 ranked team, California (PA) women at # 20, it's probably around average for D2 and includes universities such as Shippensburg, Edinboro, Millersville & Slippery Rock
              • Mountain West Conference Championships (Clovis, CA, USA) - NCAA D1 conference; Whilst this conference only has one nationally Top 25 ranked team (New Mexico's women at # 23) it's one of the better conferences outside the "Power 5", especially in the distance events. Other teams competing include Colorado State, Air Force, Utah State & Boise State
              • Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) Championships (St Paul, MN, USA) - NCAA D2 conference; This is one of the strongest D2 conferences with 3 Women's teams ranked in the national Top 25, headed by Minnesota State (# 4) and one Men's Top 25 team, also Minnesota State at # 14. Other universities competing here include U-Mary, Augustana (SD) & Winona State
              Friday

                There is also a Mountain West app on many services including Roku & Amazon, which makes it easier to watch with a remote, cos they can be a bit ad-heavy. Extra steams are also on the app, so top marks all round.

                According to my TV EPG (subject to change, revision etc) all the Live Viaplay CT Gold meets over the next two weeks do get at least one FTA repeat on Viaplay Xtra, but always at odd off-peak hours. So the KK Classic tomorrow is at 09:30 Monday etc. Anyone with a smartbox should be able to pick them up.

            • Live streams/broadcasts for Saturday 13th May to Monday 15th May:

              A reminder that I don't tease up the Conti Tour Gold meetings or Diamond Leagues - there's no need to and it saves me time not having to do so. Also, this weekend we have final day broadcasts (track finals) for the SEC, Pac-12 & ACC conferences in NCAA D1. I haven't provided teaser notes for those either, simply because if you're a fan of US collegiate athletics they're all must-watch.

              Re a couple of Conti Tour meetings on the calendar on Saturday but not listed here ... There is absolutely zero info on the NACAC New Life Invitational (Silver) in the Bahamas so I'm not even sure that's going ahead.
              Vergotia, the international sprints & field meeting in Greece, has been cancelled. It's changed venues this year and they've found out that the track at the new venue doesn't meet the specs sufficiently! Doh!

              Saturday to Sunday
              • Ongoing Kantō Region University Championships (Sagamihara, JPN) - See 2 posts above
              • Ongoing Kansai Region Corporate Championships (Naruto, JPN) - See the post above
              Saturday to Monday
              • Conference USA (C-USA) Championships (Denton, TX, USA) - NCAA D1 conference; This is a decent conference that includes UTEP, Rice & Charlotte
              Saturday
              • Ongoing Mountain West Conference Championships (Clovis, CA, USA) - NCAA D1 conference; See the post above
              • Ter Specke Bokaal (Lisse, NED) - I'm including this mainly for the Women's events where there's more athletes who are familiar than on the Men's side. The best Dutch heptathletes are competing in the 100H (also Tijn A-lim) and High Jump. The women's sprints include Seedo, Samuel & van Vliet, heading the Jav field is Bekah Walton and the Triple Jump includes Gierisch & Maduka
              • Kip Keino Classic (Nairobi, KEN) - WA Continental Tour Gold meeting
              • Göteborgsvarvet (Gothenburg, SWE) - International Half Marathon; There's a good Men's field here with 5 sub-60 men, headed by Alex Kibet (58:55 PB & 59:11 SB). The depth does fall off quite sharply after that though. The Women's race isn't as strong with 2 sub-68 athletes, Aberash Shilima & Beatrice Chepkemoi Mutai
              • Belfast Irish Milers Meet (Belfast, GBR) - WA Continental Tour Challenger meeting; There's sprint races here but the best fields are in the mid-distances (as you'd hope at a Milers Meet). The race of the day has to be the Women's 800 'A' race with the absolute best Irish women (Mageean etc), some top Brits (Boffey etc) and Scaunet (BEL). The Men's 3000 'A' race also looks pretty good with Coscoran, James West, Travers, Battershill, Griggs, Hiko Tonosa Haso & Mark Pearce. The Men's 800 'A' should be English-dominated with Davis, Randolph, Hussey & Locke and the class of the Women's 1500 line-up are Hannah Nuttall & Marissa Damink (NED). The Women's 400 'A' race is decent with Phil Healy, Mawdsley & Bundy-Davies though I wouldn't expect SBD to be competitive with those two
              • Lisek at Home (Duszniki, POL) - International Men's Pole Vault meeting; Every self-respecting world-class male pole vaulter has to have his own meeting these days and this is Piotr's. Karalis, Lisek, M Ludwig & Wojciechowski have been announced so far with more to be added
              • Milla de Santander incl Spanish Senior Road Mile Championships (Santander, ESP) - It's a little bit confounding that the Spanish Road Mile Championships don't have the strength of fields that many of Spain's invitational road mile events have. We do, however, have Marta Perez here and she faces the likes of Rosalia Tarraga & Alicia Carrera. Heading the Men's field is 3:38 1500 athlete Abderrahman El Khayami. The winners of the titles here and tomorrow in the 5km & Half Marathon championships will be provisionally selected for the World Road Running Championships at the end of September
              • Meeting Ibiza "Toni Bonet" (Ibiza, ESP) - WA Continental Tour Challenger meeting; There's a few big names of Spanish athletics competing here, e.g., World Indoor champ Mariano Garcia, Esther Guerrero & Oscar Husillos. However, the fields aren't deep although there is a good head-to-head in many of the events, e.g., Angel Tenorio (ECU) vs Maribel Perez in the 100 (also includes Cyrena Samba Mayela) and in the Men's 3000 Mohamed Al-Garni (QAT) faces Sergio Jimenez and Sergio Paniagua who had a breakthrough winter on the country this winter
              • Ongoing Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Championships (Slippery Rock, PA, USA) - NCAA D2 conference; See the post above
              • Ongoing The Summit League Conference Championships (Fargo. ND, USA) - NCAA D1 conference; See 2 posts above
              • Ongoing Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) Championships (St Paul, MN, USA) - NCAA D2 conference; See the post above
              • River Bank Run incl USA 25km Championships (Grand Rapids, MI, USA) - The Women's race looks the more interesting here (they start separately so I think there's a stream for each race). Amongst the headliners are D'Amato, Betsy Saina, Rojas & Paquette and also entered is steepler and 2019 World Mountain Running champion, Grayson Murphy. The Men's field includes Leonard Korir, Sam Chelanga & Jacob Thomson
              • Southeastern Conference (SEC) Championships (Baton Rouge, LA, USA) - NCAA D1 conference
              Sunday
              • Run Your City Cape Town 10k (Cape Town, RSA) - International road race; This is a good series of events. Stephen Mokoka, Denis Kipngetich (KEN), Precious Mashele, Elroy Galant & Melikhaya Frans make for a good line-up in the Men's race. Mashele is the new NR-holder with his 27:35 in the Run Your City Gqberha 10k a few weeks ago. 19yo Prisca Chesang (UGA; 30:19 PB) looks like the strong favourite to take the Women's victory
              • Santander 5km & Half Marathon incl Spanish 5km & Half Marathon Championships (Santander, ESP) - The Men's Half Marathon has a decent cast competing for the Spanish title, e.g., Rojo, Blanco, Chakir & Blanes, but overall they are likely to be playing second fiddle to the Kenyans (Nehemiah Kipyegon the fastest at 61:43) and maybe also to Abderraahmane Aferdi (MAR) who made big strides on the country this winter and has been consistent in the 28-mid range for 10km this year. Nancy Jepleting (KEN) might be the favourite for the Women's Half Marathon although she can be inconsistent. The domestic field for the Spanish HM championship isn't super-deep but still features good athletes such as Merixtell Soler, Fátima Ouhaddou (both with a 2:26 marathon PB this year), Irene Pelayo, Laura Mendez & Laura Luengo, fresh off a big 32:20 10km PB last month. There's a bunch of good women competing for the Spanish 5km title such as Beatriz Alvarez, Maitane Melero, Lidia Campo, Alicia Berzosa & triathlete Paula Herrero, the latter probably the favourite after her recent road 10km races (31:23 NR). However, with Nancy Jepleting (returning after the Half Marathon??) & Majida Maayouf (MAR) also entered, she could face stiff competition to be the first woman across the line. Heading the Men's 5km field are Ouassim Ouamiz (13:06 5000 PB) and Jesus Ramos who won the 10k in Huelva in 28:16 a few weeks ago.
              • Czech Super League Round 1 (Brno, CZE) - There's no entry lists for this yet but these meetings are usually well supported by many of Czechia's best athletes. The Czech Federation's live streams are also very good so it's an easy watch
              • Copenhagen Marathon (Copenhagen, DEN) - WA Label race; The Men's field is pretty good here with 6 sub-2:07 athletes, headed by Reuben Kiprop (2:03:55 PB). Great to also see that Mongolian NR-holder and ex-Morpeth Harrier, Ser Od Bat Ochir, will also be lining up. Juliet Chekwel (UGA) heads a Women's field that includes 3 athletes at 2:24 or faster. There's also a few B/C-level Brits competing in both races, including Mohamud Aadan & Philly Bowden
              • Internationales Läufermeeting AKA Meeting der krummen Strecken (Pliezhausen, GER) - WA Continental Tour Challenger meeting; This is always a nice kick-off to the German season. Even though it's not terribly loaded, in most events there's at least a couple of good names. In the Men's 2000SC, Italy's Zoghlami brothers go against Jan-Pieter Hannes (BEL). Mihambo, Micha Powell (CAN) & Alicia Schmidt are amongst the athletes in one or both of the 150 & 300. The Women's 1000 features Katharina Trost against Majtie Kolberg & Delia Sclabas. Alex Haydock-Wilson is in the 150 & 300 against Spain's Samuel Garcia
              • Marathon de Santiago Chile (Santiago, CHI) - No idea of the fields here but it's usually a decent marathon with a number of East Africans competing. The course records are 2:09:39 & 2:28:18
              • Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Championships (Raleigh, NC, USA) - NCAA D1 conference
              • Pac-12 Conference Championships (Walnut, CA, USA) - NCAA D1 conference
              Monday to Thursday
              • Indian Federation Cup Championships (Ranchi, IND) - This is one of the strongest Indian meetings and always has some good depth and performances

              Next major post possibly on Monday evening for Tuesday's Reunión Internacional Ciudad de Guadalajara meeting in Spain and also, if sufficient info is available by then, for Wednesday's Filothei Women Gala (Conti Tour Silver) and Portarathlon (World Combined Events Tour Bronze), both in Greece. We're starting to get into the meat of the season when multiple posts per week are needed again!​

            • Live streams/broadcasts for Wednesday 17th May:

              Wednesday to Thursday
              • Portarathlon (Naxos, GRE) - World Combined Events Tour Bronze meeting; The line-ups are decent here with 4 men over 7700 points including Harry Kendall and 4 women over 5800, headed by Daryna Sloboda (UKR). There's 5 other Brits also competing including Jordana Morrish & Joseph Caius
              Wednesday
              • Filothei Women Gala (Filothei nr Athens, GRE) - WA Continental Tour Silver meeting; Sprints & jumps meeting; The fields here probably don't quite justify the upgrade from Bronze to Silver level but this is always an enjoyable and compact meeting in a quirky little stadium. The pick of the events is probably the Long Jump including Gardasevic, Rotaru-Kottmann, Filippa Kviten (nee Fotopoulou) & Diana Lesti. Kat Stefanidi & Angelina Topic are also competing along with GB's Kate Anson

              Next major post tomorrow (Wednesday) evening for Thursday's Meeting Desafío Nerja (in Spain) which is looking good, and the international mid-distance meeting in Toulouse.​
