    Chip off the old block then! Any details? I can only see that Nestarenko (whatever happened to him?) still holds the mark with both senior and 1.75kg implements, although Alekna jnr is right up there.

    Fair point, but was discounting windy efforts although that was marginal. With a stronger wind he also did an 8.92.

    In the field this is predated by DT (86), HT (86), LJ (91), HJ (93), TJ (95) and JT (96).

    SP (90) is probably strictly on that list too as I doubt Crouser’s mark has been ratified yet. Mondo only broke the proper (ie outdoor) mark last year which dated back to 94.

    Make of that what you will (and some of you will definitely make things of it!) but looks like no men’s outdoor field WRs were set between 96 and 2020 which is quite staggering really.

    Might have been even worse if Bubka had actually tried to see what he was really capable of rather than inching (centimetring!) up the bar for the cash.

    There have been near misses though….

    DT - Alekna 73.88 in 00

    .
    Alekna’s son beat the U20WR a few days back, will be going to the European U-20s in a couple of weeks.

    DT - Alekna 73.88 in 00

    JT - Vetter’s 97.76 last year

    TJ - Taylor’s 18.21 in 15

    HJ - Barshim’s 2.43 in 14.

    HT and LJ pretty much unchallenged.
    Err, you're forgetting Echavarria's 8.83 marginally windy long jump effort in Stockholm 2019, the one where he almost jumped out of the pit? That was challenging the LJ WR for sure.

    Ethiopian team of 34 named for Tokyo - https://www.worldathletics.org/compe...-olympic-games

    Strictly no doubling allowed!

    Gudaf Tsegay confirmed for the 5000, not the 1500.
    Getnet Wale doing the 5000 not the Steeple - what is he & the federation thinking?! With Kipruto possibly out he'd be the favourite for Steeple gold ! The 5000 on the other hand will be absolutely loaded in Tokyo. No Lamecha Girma in the Steeple either.

    No place on the team for Genzebe Dibaba or Muktar Edris. The end of an era?

    Agreed! With Cheruiyot not going to Tokyo, McSweyn will have to do the heavy pace work by himself if he wants to get a medal. If Tokyo is a tactical race, then McSweyn has no chance at a medal!

    I'm an admirer of McSweyn . great run by him. Lewandowski certainly knows how to pour it on over the last few hundred metres. In the OG he will do well in a slow tactical race. The Kenyans nothing special based on this race.

    Probably both! I loved his reaction too. He's a serious talent, only 20!!!

    Absolutely, excellent courage in that run.

    I wonder if that was just "wow 46.70 that's quick!" or "46.70 that's quicker than I thought because I'm quite close"?

    Do Santos btw continues to impress... Another AR with 47.38, moving up to =15th on the world all-time list, and not that far behind Warholm in the end.... And he only turned 21 on the 3rd of June! Massive talent.
