    Daniel Simiu (27:42) and Yelamzerf Yehualaw (31:16) were the comfortable winners in Madrid. Ruth Chepngetich 2nd in 31:49 and in the men's Paul Chelimo (28:14) outdipped Mike Foppen for 3rd.

    No records at the Run Of The Noses in Barcelona.

    The winners were Gressier 13:39, Dibaba 15:00 approx, Amdouni 27:42 PB & Obiri 30:53. Gressier doubled back from the 5k to get 3rd in the 10k in 28:15.

    Contrary to what I initially stated in the Live Streaming Links thread, the Madrid course coming up might be record-eligible (for the Spanish men?) - I'd forgotten that they have changed the course for this year I think.

    At the BoClassic in Bolzano, Yeman Crippa didn't succeed in his bid to break Jimmy Gressier's European Record (13:18). In fact the first European was Belgium's Robin Hendrix who pulverised the Belgian NR running 13:19 in 2nd behind Oscar Chelimo (UGA), 13:18.

    Margaret Chelimo Kipkemboi won the Women's 10km in 30:42.

    In 50 minutes' time Gressier is attempting to improve that ER in Barcelona where Genzebe Dibaba will attack Hassan's 14:44 WR.

    Amazing how the season has gone, when was the last time a world lead was set so late in the year? Today Stewart McSweyn just ran a Mile in 3:50.61 for an Australian all comers record, winning by 19 seconds in Tasmania.

    No need to chase after an Olympic qualifier any more.

    Meanwhile, in Brisbane, 20 year old Ash Maloney, set an Australian record of 8492. Highlight was a 45.82 400, the 3rd fastest ever in a dec behind Ashton Eaton and Bill Toomey.

    Cedric Dubler also got the qualifying score in 2nd place.

    Good week for current or former (Sam Atkin) NAIA athletes.

    Emma Wilson (USA), who pushed Amy-Eloise Neale so hard on the country 4 weeks ago, ran 32:38 in a mixed 10,000 tonight.

    Very good run by Atkin. His first 10K since 2016 too. And it puts him ahead of Mo in this year's rankings.

    I've watched the Men's 10,000 in LA now and it seems like Sam Atkin only started the race as a pacemaker. He had hip number 2 and each race had 2 lead pacers with hip numbers 1 & 2.
    Obviously he was feeling so good when he dropped off the pacing duties at 5k that he decided to carry on and see what he could do.

    Wow! 27:26.58 for Sam Atkin takes him to #4 on the UK all-time list, bumping Chris Thompson & lots of big names down a place. Crucially it's also an Olympic Standard (27:28). His 13:18 PB wasn't (OQT 13:13.50) but him and 4 others might be kicking themselves about that 5000 because they let the pace lag early on.

    I've got one more race to watch at the Track Meet in California (that Men's 10k 'A' race) but already many of the athletes have been taking a sledgehammer to their PBs ...

    In the women's 10,000 'A' race 8 women got the Olympic Standard, 6 of them American!
    ...
    1 Rachel Schneider 31:09.79 (15:47/15:23) - #7 US all-time, on her track 10k debut!
    2 Weini Kelati (ERI) 31:10
    3 Alicia Monson 31:10 (still just 22 and it was she who really pushed the pace in the last 3km; One of my favourite runners, she just goes for it!) - #9 US all-time
    4 Sharon Lokedi (KEN) 31:11
    5 Natosha Rogers 31:12 - #10 US all-time
    6 Kellyn Taylor 31:15
    7 Dani Shanahan 31:22
    8 Steph Bruce 31:24

    Even the 'B' race was good quality with 6 women sub-32:15, headed by Maria Mettler (still a collegian) & Carrie Verdon, both 32:09.

    Beat Kamworor's WR but still finish off the podium. Madness!

    Some top winning marks in the other 3 races but all overshadowed by that race.
