    I noticed that Bol wasn't named for the Women's 4x400 team. But she is named for the Mixed relay which seems to be the one they're targeting.

    The Dutch are missing a 4th runner to medal at this stage. I’d say GBR or Poland for bronze but I’ve not seen much of the Poles

    I guess so, but he should never be discounted. He has surprised me many times before.

    Claye doesn't seem to be in that form this year. In the mix for medals, but I would be surprised if he challenged Zango or Pichardo for the gold in Tokyo.

    Gyulai Istvan Meet July 6th: Yeargin -51.95 and Mielsen- 52.82. I was hoping that the women's 4 x 400 could somehow win a Bronze medal in Tokyo. Yeargin's long season and some other mediocre results have me thinking that we might be battling NED for 4th place, just outside the medals.

    Don't forget about Claye. Only beaten by Taylor (who isn't here this time) in the last two world champs ('17 and '19) and Olympics ('12 and '16).

    Should be a fight between Walsh and Kovacs for the silver medal unless Crouser underperforms.

    The triple jump competition in Szekesfehervar I thought was a good one with Zango only 10cm behind Pichardo's brilliant 17.92, they seem well ahead of the rest of the world right now. Also Tom Walsh throwing 22.22 and looks to be coming back into form at the right time.

    Yep, he apparently announced at the end of last week he wasn't going to Europe before Tokyo.

    Did i imagine it, but was Rai Benjamin on the Startlist for 400m hurdles in Monaco with Warholm originally; not there now.

    It is beginning to appear as if the 800m in the OG may be a wonderful tear up in the last 100/150 metres; I am beginning to get a feeling about young Dobek.

    In 3rd place was fellow Authorized Neutral Athlete (aka Russian) Mikhail Akimenko, with the 2019 world championship silver medallist and former world U20 champion also clearing 2.33 m, equalling his season's best.
    Gianmarco Tamberi was 4th with 2.30 m
    Havent seen too much from the World Champion in HJ so far this year; Hope Barshim is at his best.

    I thought Schubenkov ran well this evening and needs some more top flight competition if he can find it.

    Great times and performances today in Hungary... and according to the meeting director, the track is "soft", so not supposedly conducive to fast times... Well, looks like the athletes were eager to prove him wrong!
    Miller Uibo looked a bit rusty to me, not having done many 200m races yet,a bit like another athlete i can think of.
    Shaunae will be in Fridays 200m. I bet she is feeling a little more confident about her 400m chances now that Naser and the Namibians are not going to be in Tokyo.
