    At the Copenhagen Athletics Games, triple jumper Naomi Ogbeta comes in 3rd place with a 6th round 13.64m (+0.7 m/s), in a competition that had to deal with shifting winds that went from helpful tailwinds into troublesome headwinds. She has the U-23 standard, but she's still someway short of the 14.20m required for Doha.

    In the 1st of the men's 100m heats, Kyle De Escofet and Samuel Osewa both qualify for this evenings final with 10.47 and 10.60 clocking respectively, having to contend with a stiff headwind (-1.8 m/s).

    Earlier in the women's 100m heats, Bianca Williams (Heat 1) qualified for the final with a 11.73 time, again into a headwind (-1.7 m/s), while Ashleigh Nelson in the 2nd heat clocked 11.69 (-1.5 m/s) to win it ahead of Trinidad & Tobago sprinter Semoy Hackett (11.75) and fellow Brit Rachel Miller (11.77).

    Meanwhile at the Sollentuna Meeting in Sweden, Emily Diamond won the 400m race with an 52.82 time recorded.

      In the women's 100m final at the Copenhagen Athletics Games, Rachel Miller wins in 11.53 (-0.5 m/s) ahead of Semoy Hackett (11.55) and Bianca Williams (11.59 SB). Ashleigh Nelson came 7th in 11.78.

      In the men's final, Zambia's Sydney Siame came through with the victory in a tight race, out-dipping the American Cordero Gray 10.33 to 10.34 into a stiff headwind (-1.0 m/s). Kyle de Escofet came through for 3rd place in 10.47, while Samuel Osewa came in 5th, clocking 10.57.

    At the Jyvaskyla Games in Finland, Nick Miller came 2nd to the up and coming superstar of hammer, Mykhaylo Kokhan, who won his first senior hammer contest with a throw of 75.42m, just nine centimeters beyond Miller's best effort in the final round (75.33m).

    This is a major scalp for the Ukrainian athlete who only last year with the junior implement set a new world U-18 best of 87.82m at the European U-18 Championships in Gyor on his way to the gold medal. He is just 18 years old, but already has set a PB with the senior hammer over 76 meters and now has won against the reigning Commonwealth and Olympic champions today.
    Miller, who has recently been on a good run of throwing form and not exactly "old" himself at 26 years of age, will now be very aware of the talent and potential Kokhan possesses after this contest.

      Nick Miller doesn't have long to wait for a chance of revenge over Kokhan. They're facing off again at Saturday's Kuortane Games (by the way, I may have figured out that the Finnish meetings are available live without geo-blocking).

        Some UK performances of note in the last couple of days...

        In Ostrava, Kyle Langford came fourth in the 800m, behind Tuka, Kszczot and Kipketer, clocking 1:46.08 as he continued his return to full action after missing most of 2018 with injury.

        Martin Rooney's difficult start to season continued in the 400m contest, following on from his poor run at Sollentuna on Tuesday he was way down the field in the race won by Steven Gardiner (44.95), coming a distant 7th in a less than promising season's "best" of 47.38.

        Charles Da'Vall Grice won in the men's mile race, overtaking Kenyan Michael Kibet in the last few strides to win in 3:56.95, another good mile win for the Brit.

        Richard Kilty's return from injury continued in the "B" 100m race, and he came through for a third placed finish in a decent 10.27 SB (-0.3 m/s), behind American Bryce Robinson (10.21) and South African Thando Dlodlo (10.24).

        Finally in the women's 1500m, which has been such a hot event in the last month or so, Sarah McDonald good form continued, coming second to Gudaf Tsegay (4:02.95) who was fresh from her personal best run in that record breaking race in Rabat on Sunday. McDonald, also fresh from moving into 12th place on the UK all time list in the same race, clocked 4:03.79 in this race, her third best time ever over the distance. Meanwhile 21 year old Jemma Reekie finished 7th in that race in a new personal best of 4:05.82, knocking almost 3 seconds off her previous best time set last year at the Athletics World Cup (4:09.05).

          Jemma Reekie ran a 4:06.11 split in the Anniversary Games Mile last year, hence why she was able to go to Berlin (the UKA standard was 4:07.00). But yes, another eight PBs in the Ostrava race including Darya Barysevich 4:04.4 and our favourite Slovenian distance runner, Marusa Mishmash, 4:06.6.

          Various Brits competing in Tuebingen, Nancy, Kuortane & the Berlin street meeting on Saturday.

            I was thinking about adding a little blurb about that very thing.... Probably should have said that in a "full" 1500m race for Reekie.

                    Agreed. Shame that it looks like despite the warm sunny weather in Bedford, that the wind is blowing into the faces of the sprinters today. That's why the times haven't been particularly impressive, even though those were the heats.

                          Well damn.... Looks like Jeremiah Azu might be out of the U-20's. In the last 5-10 meters of the U-20 100m final and well clear of the rest, Azu pulled up with what appeared to be a left hamstring injury. He crossed the line in first place, but then soon afterward collapsed to the track, clutching at his left thigh, in obvious pain.
