    those fields, if they all turn up, definitely put one into dribbling mode. Shame that DAS and her coach will not run in the Monaco 200m meet to acquaint herself with the opposition and enjoy the conditions before the" winter" DL meet in Gateshead.

    At the moment, McNeal may be banned by the time of Tokyo.

    Well it was meant to be agreeing with Gully agreeing with you! When there keeps being smoke in the air it’s reasonable to suspect there’s a fire or two alight. I would say I don’t think it’s all Americans - I have huge respect for Felix, Mu’s progression seems reasonable, others. Adore Noah lyles. But Im not going to trust by default.

    Men’s 800 in Monaco looks like a dress rehearsal for the Olympic final, cannot wait. Women’s looks very strong too. Benjamin vs Warholm in the hurdles, could be a special night

    Thought Phillipo couldn't have put it better.

    There are too many head in the sand fans .
    some of the performances and beyond belief and can't just be credited to hard work and good coaches ...... some additional ingredients into the mix .
    The Americans have indicated once again this year and others that they have no respect for the rules of athletics, doping issues, decency or protocol ; all they obsess about as ever is winning( its their frigging culture or DNA), no matter cover ups or anything else.
    Anyone following their college system knows what goes on in the States; nothing new for me . i recall the seventies ,the eighties and now over the recent issues.. Only the naive deny.
    Travis Tygart, that cynical shit, knows all the deceit and secret cover ups that the Yanks attempted over Houlihan and they are represented in the short hurdles with another illegal, McNeal.

    I do think - and in fact said it elsewhere - that it's difficult to entirely trust all American performances at the minute.They currently have their best m100m runner sitting out a ban, as did his predeccesor twice, arguably their best female hurdler is appealing against a ban, their 200m F 21.6 runner just evaded a ban last year, you have their best middle distance woman sitting out, with her coach claiming to never have heard of nandrolone? And that's just off the top of my head.

    There are other factors explaining Amercian dominance - weather, NCAA system, etc, but I don't think it's unreasonable to suspect some performances as well.

    Agree with MysteryBrick. If Crouser is slightly under par, he comes within range of what Kovacs and Walsh have done. If Vetter is slightly below par, someone else will have to improve quite a bit to beat him.
