    • American record Discus throw by Valarie Allman in Idaho, 70.15, beating her previous best by 3m!

      Whether she can back it up is the question.

      Also, a NR for Sweden's Michaela Meijer in the PV, 4.83, adding 2cm to Angelica Bengtsson's (indoor) mark.

      • Just read that James Whiteaker has thrown a 77.84 PB in the spear. If he can stay fit he should become a regular 80+ merchant.

        • The Sollentuna GP (SWE) on Monday 10th looks like a pretty good meeting with quite a few Brits entered too - http://www.folksamgrandprix.se/Solle...sp?PageId=2118

            And proper events, not stunts.

        • The London Marathon on 4th October is cancelled for the masses but will still go ahead for the elites who will run laps of an approximately 1.5 mile loop - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/athletics/53661336

          • Not bad fields for the first WA Continental Gold meeting in Turku, Finland this Tuesday 11th, and a lot of Brits competing.

            Fair to say, I think, that many of the fields are kinda European Championship semifinal level, though the women's 100H looks cracking. For me, that's good enough for the moment. It all looks competitive with a nice mix of nations represented.

            I see that it's not on Eurosport this year so that means we'll be able to watch World Athletics' YouTube stream of it.

            • Kipruto will miss Monaco DL - positive for the Shanghai Shivers, but no symptoms. Was talking a WR attempt.

              • Terrific win in the 400 at the Czech Championships for 18yo Barbora Malíková (DoB 30.12.2001), coming from 5 metres down off the final bend to defeat the favourite Lada Vondrová (PB/SB 51.35) in a NU20R, 51.65. Malíková is the World U18 champion from 2017 (aged 15!) & European U18 champion from 2018.

                The race is at the 1h 10m mark at https://www.ceskatelevize.cz/porady/...cr-2020-plzen/ (no geo-blocking) - Malíková in lane 5 in the all-blue kit.

                It sucks for her that the World U20 Championships were postponed this year - she's 2 days too old to be eligible for the re-arranged championships next year!

                    Will now have to go into a fortnight’s quarantine after visiting Plague Central.

                    Yes, you'd think so but are athletes getting special exemptions?

                • Oh boy! .... Check out the fields for Monaco - https://monaco.diamondleague.com/en/...ats-monaco-en/

                  I hope they all make it there!

                  A reminder that there's good meetings streaming live tomorrow and Tuesday, with plenty of British involvment - the Sollentuna GP & the Paavo Nurmi Games (WACT Gold meeting).

                  • When was the last time we saw a DL steeplechase with only one Kenyan in the field?

                      The 71.37 that shouldn't have been!

                      On the slo-mo at the 40s mark of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eh-r1PRReYw , the back 3 inches or so of his foot clearly makes contact with the ground outside the rim of the circle.

                      However, he argued the toss with the officials and got the original red flag overturned.

                      • Andrew Pozzi’s Italian Tour pays off - 13:17 WL & a near PB.

                        • Three British victories at the WACT Gold meeting in Turku.

                          The aforementioned Pozzi, Millie Courtney-Bryant in a near PB, 4:03.69, and Jazmin Sawyers, 6.54.

                          Also, a big 6s PB for Phil Norman, 2nd in the Steeple, 8:23.60. So, that's two British men sub-8:24 in the last year. We're being spoiled, LOL.

                          The meeting was finished with a very good Women's 100H. Nadine Visser the winner in 12.66 and 2nd and 3rd , Luminosa Bogliolo (ITA) 12.79 & Luca Kozak (HUN) 12.83 PB, are gradually closing in on their respective NRs which are both 12.76 (Veronica Borsi & Xenia Siska).
