    Great, close racing in the W 800s at the East Prelims. Another PB for Katy-Ann McDonald, 2:01.67, 3rd in her heat and qualifying for Eugene. However, she was only 8th fastest on the night!
    According to the commentator on the NCAA livestream of the event, McDonald was part of the fastest ever set of quarter final heats in NCAA history, so yeah, pretty special stuff all round.

      We'll see if the West can match it tonight.

      Having seen the 1st round heats there I'm not sure they can and the 2 best 800 runners there - Athing Mu & Sage Hurta - are both running another event instead.

      Nowhere near - fastest West qualifier would have been 10th in the East.

  • Some pretty swift times over in the 200m quarter finals in the NCAA East prelims, with Tamara Clark the quickest of the lot, a 22.13 PB, facilities record and collegiate leading performance that takes the 22 year old to 3rd on the 2021 timings lists so far.

        If I understand the reports properly it’s the best ever wind legal day one.

        And he starts day 2 with 13.36 PB in the hurdles.

        • Kaul over 600 points behind after day 1, but he can make up 400 of those just with his javelin.

          • Well, looks like Pawel Fajdek is back on form.... in damp conditions with a wet hammer circle, Fajdek has just launched the hammer to a new ETC record of 82.98m which is also a world lead for this year.

            • Fabulous performance by Warner in Gotzis. 8995 so close to 9000. Could be favourite for Tokyo gold now. Kaul and Uibo underperformed all weekend and Mayer is a bit of an enigma.

                Also finally removes Daley Thompson as Commonwealth record holder, which I think he first became in 1978!

            • Just catching up with the Portland Track Festival live streams that I stumped up for. Still got the 1500s and 5000s to go but I've clipped the video of the M 800 with Brazier vs Korir vs Jesus Tonatiu Lopez. Watch it at https://www.dropbox.com/s/esc18yhkco...tival.mp4?dl=0

              I've written about the bespectacled Mexican a couple of times already this season. He's going to be a contender come Tokyo!

              • Just finished my Portland viewing. Yes, well done to Bird, Grice & Heyward. Craig Engels won that 1500 in 3:33.64 PB.

                There was a swift W 800 too with 6 women sub-2, led by Gabriella Debues-Stafford, 1:58.70 PB and Sabrina Southerland, 1:58.82 PB.

                Karissa Schweizer didn't look great in the 5000, just 4th in 15:00 behind Jessica Hull (14:57), Andrea Seccafien & Julie-Anne Staehli.

                If there was a non-African Women's 4 x 5000m relay Canada would now be right up there challenging for the silver medal with GBR (probably behind the USA). To go with GDS (14:44), in the last 2 weeks Secaffien (14:57), Staehli (14:57) and Kate van Buskirk (14:59) have all run PBs. In reserve they'd have Natalia Hawthorn (15:05) as well.

                  Will be for sure one of the most open races in Tokyo, methinks. Lopez is impressive, but watch the Kenyans over the next few weeks.

                    I'm watching for Rowden. He is genuinely absolute class.

                    Elias Ngeno 1:43.84 on Saturday at the Kenyan Champs, a new name to me, most of the stats sites don’t have a DOB for him

                • On Saturday Molly Huddle was only 4th in the 5000 in Boston in 15:24, well behind winner Emily Sisson, 14:59. With only 3 weeks until the US Olympic Trials it looks unlikely that Huddle will be able to get in shape to make the 10,000 team.

                  • Jodie at 22.88 and 52.01 behind felix 50.66. Knighton the youngster wins in 20.11 with hughes in 20.30 and Gemili way back in 20,6 and bits. Brianna William's gets down to a legal 10.98.

                      good spot on the 200 from Jodie, about 1:15 after the 400 too so a very good run!

                  • Great weather in Montreuil for tonights meet. Can we have a bit please

                    • Can’t say that Erriyon Knighton is a name that has crossed my radar before but he’s lowered Bolt’s u18 WR to 20.11. Some 7 months younger than Bolt was, which may matter a little at that age.

                      =4th on that list is Thomas Somers with his 20.37 from 2014. Still competes regularly, but nowhere that kind of level. What’s the story there?

                        Congrats to Knighton for breaking Bolt's age group record there.

                        As to Somers, simple answer. Injuries. Lots of 'em.
