    Oh, dear, Pozzi back to his bad old self, trail of matchwood I’m afraid. Ortega just shades Holloway 13:21 ftw.

    Adam Gemili 3rd in the 200m, 20.56 SB. Noah Lyles gets the double-up.

    Boom! One down, one to go.
    Kozak ran 12.71 (-0.2) behind Visser 12.68 in Hungary today.

    Dai Greene first Brit up in Hungary....not a stellar 400m H field at all.

    Abi Irozoru 6.46 in the LJ, has been competing a fair bit, but in that sort of form all summer.

    Lavial Nielsn next up in the 400m flat....52:24 SB, finishing fast though. Jessie Knight 52.52 PB in 5th.

    Adam Gemili in the 100m....2nd to Noah Lyles, 10:28 SB.

    Can't see that is impossible for Gemili to step up from that cursed 4th spot. No one is suggesting it would be easy ; but writing off his chances seems to me rather extreme pessimism.
    Heaven knows what Tokyo will be like next year , and who will be "ready" - if it even goes ahead. Predictions one way or the other seem to me more than usually all about guesswork...

    Good win for Alex Bell in Szczecin in 2:00:28, comprehensively overturning her 1000m defeat to Angelika Cichocka in Sopot on Thursday. Bell was approx 58.6 at the (ahem) bell. Cichocka just 4th in 2:01.98. Adelle Tracey 2nd in 2:00.99. Italy's Elena Bello' 3rd in a 0.9s PB, 2:01.34.

    Also at this meeting Jessie Knight won the 400H in 55.45 from Joanna Linkiewicz, 56.16. Lina Nielsen 4th in 58.01.

    Lisek vaulted 5.90 SB.

    I would take results this year with a pinch of salt. Some people have had seriously compromised training, some have been fine.
    Adam, the eternal fourth, has missed the boat for me as a global 200m medallist. There are a number of guys in the 200m who will be challenging for next years OG..Guliyev, Quinonez,De Grasse and the Americans.
    The most fascinating thoughts about the sprints for next year, in my view, are whether the male Jamaican sprinters will be anywhere at all. How things change.!!

    A good day all round, Scott Lincoln has produced a new PB also. Well done to Dobson, given the strength at men’s 200 domestically it’s a savvy move to have a second event on the back burner

    He's down to run the 200 at the British Champs.

    I wonder if he's looking at moving up to 400 properly? As you say, he's never raced the distance before.

    Ian Hodge is a very welcome go to reference for updates on Team GB athletes,... if you are out there reading this, cheers mate! Blimey.. if that is Dobson's first effort, then he should be appluaded, and, given the paucity of this event in, British terms, he might well consoider running that at the Champs. According to Ian Hodge some very positive shot put news, but I will leave that to Ursus to share

    Charlie Dobson ran 45.84 in his first ever 400, according to Ian Hodge on Twitter. He ran 6.64 over the 60 this winter too, so eyes on a potentially swift 200 soon (trials?).

    And some (eg DAS) are obviously writing this year off altogether.

    Hopefully everyone is able to get back to their best next year.
