    Beautiful sunny day in the Podebrady park for the European RW Team Championships. The M 50km & W 35km has just got underway. The live stream is excellent.

    Terrance Laird, world leader over 200m outdoors so far this season, flies down the track in the 100m final and wins in a scorching 9.80, though aided by a +3.4m/s following wind, upstaging teenage and YouTube sprint phenom Matthew Boling, though the latter still managed a 9.97 clocking in 2nd place.

    Yes, many of them are very parochial.

    noticeable that the so called fans on that other Forum don't mention that two brits, not the wonder yanks, won the 800m and 1500m for women; such w*nkers that they are unable to appreciate that there are other fine athletes around; That what track nationalism does for you. as i have spent years saying.

    Inbetween all the buffering on the ESPN stream of Track Meet I'm hoping to catch the 800s and women's 1500! Hopefully some American will upload the broadcast to YouTube.

    Several Olympic qualifying times in the 10,000s at Track Meet in California last night.

    In the women's, Andrea Seccafien (CAN) led the way with a 31:13.94, demolishing Natasha Wodak's NR by 28 seconds! Former NCAA XC champ Ednah Kurgat (now USA) ran a 31:21 PB, followed very closely by Sara Hall, also a big PB. The best run by Kurgat for years after looking quite underwhelming ever since that 2017 NCAA title. Agonisingly for Makena Morley (recent Colorado graduate), she was 0.19s outside the standard but did run a PB by 63 seconds!
    Now 14 American women have the 10,000 standard.

    Both Jess Judd & Laura Galvan (MEX) were close to making it 2 Olympic Standards in a week after both getting the 5000 standard at Mt Sac last weekend.

    In the men's Zouhair Talbi (MAR) won in 27:20.61 and Emmanuel Bor, 27:22, & Joe Klecker, 27:23, increased the number of American men with the standard.

    One to keep an eye on!

    Audrey Werro (SUI), aged 17 years 2 months, ran the 600m in Lagenthal today in 1.26.61.

    We absolutely need to see more of this. It puts to bed the argument when you see people posting the top speeds of players in other sports and insult athletics by comparing it to sub 10 runners.

    Full respect to the man for trying to back it up, 10.37 is very handy as well. Would love to see this in the UK, I specifically remember my head spinning when it was alleged that a 16 year old Theo Walcott could run 10.20 over 100m (not on po10, shock)

    This is the sort of exposure UK athletics could really do with. Richard Kilty offered Hector Bellerin out a few years ago for a race after people claimed he could hit the same speeds as Bolt.
    Fair play to him for giving it a go, and putting in a moderately respectable time.
