    one does not aspire to be the dreadful USA commentators; Maybe one hopes for a slightly more grown up attempt to be polite and give people the right sounding names. Its not as if the names are so hard even the poles can be pronounced with a certain professional competence Jennys latest attempt was Nanyando; whats so ruddy hard... Nanyondo.

    When the blazes will Jenny learn to do her job which involves pronouncing athletes names correctly; Mbomba? Mbumba? No dear, Mboma.
    Couldn't get even Crouser's first name. Forgot he is called Ryan Crouser.He is fairly well known..I hope that next year the youtube channel can find somebody with some wider knowledge of the full range of events.

    And the Kenyans think they should be a host to world Champs or something. The officials are utterly hopeless a; every time time i have ever watched track in Kenya they have not a clue how to run a top quality meet.. the Kenyan commentators make one yearn for CJ. Poor meet stuck the end of a long season and who gives a damn. It was always obvious that athletes except East Africans do not wish to compete hard in that rarified air. Who can blame them.?

    The startlists for the Kip Keino Classic (WACT Gold) meeting are out - https://kipkeinoclassic.co.ke/scorek.../schedule.html

    I'm quite impressed with how many Europeans and Americans are making the trip over.

    Immediately prior to the international broadcast/feed there's a good W 5000 (Rengeruk, Eva Cherono, Mamo, Margaret Kipkemboi) and M 1500 (Abel Kipsang, Kwemoi, Lemi). They should be on the Kenyan TV coverage linked in the Live Streaming Links document.

    Sawyers has also made the step up to regular Diamond League competitor and has competed at quite a few more meetings as a result. Her busiest season.

    Neubrandenburg was also the venue for Jurgen Schult's still-standing men's WR.

    Not a perfect fit for this thread, but very sad to see that mHT WR holder Yuriy Sedykh has died. Sergey Litvinov died in 2018 meaning that neither of the 2 longest hammer throwers in history even got to see their 67th birthday.

    They both went over 86m. No-one else has legitimately managed over 85 (Tikhon got to within 1cm of Sedykh, but that was struck from the records for having been a naughty boy).

    Good stuff from Allman. That takes her to 18th on the all time lists.

    That mark is only the 83rd best performance of all time - 58 of those above her were by Germans. The 80s really were a vintage era. :-)

    Irrespective of anything else, wind conditions must have been pretty good the day Reinsch set the WR…..71.34 was only good enough for 4th!

    Sawyers performances have gone up a level this season, her base level now seems to be 6.70, where as in the past it was 6.60.

    Very impressive PB from Azu as well today

    That throw by Allman has been bettered by Perkovic a couple of times but only by quite a small margin. Other than her, no-one else has thrown that far since 1992!

    Great closing speed from Neita for the win. Terrible start and well down at 50m, but burned through the field very impressively. 11.04 (+.5)

    Good win also for Jaz Sawyers 6.73. Beating a strong field inc Mihambo and Sagnia.


    Even more impressive WL and AR from Allman in the DT. 71.16 !!

    Asian Record 5.93 for Ernest John Obiena at the Golden Roof Challenge street meet in Innsbruck. Terrific crowd there making a lot of noise.

    Anzhelika Sidorova won taking 3 vaults, over 4.65 at the 2nd attempt and then called it a night.

    Jaz Sawyers was 2nd in the LJ with 6.32 behind winner Mironchyk-Ivanova, 6.55.
