      Well then, looks like the "perfect weather" from earlier has disappeared.... A thunderstorm and high winds is sweeping through the stadium and sending marques and advertising hordings flying, while athletes and spectators scramble for cover!

        I suspect anyone in the 2nd Mens heat of the 100 is pretty peeved that the 1st heat had so many false starts and therefore they didn't get to run

          Agreed. Also it was kinda poetic justice that the dude that refused to leave after committing the third false start was the one responsible for the next one. The official looked more than happy to brandish the red card in that dude's face with relish afterward!

            Well, that's that for the meeting. The remaining events, including the men's 100m, the final of the 110m hurdles and 200m, along with the women's triple jump, 100m hurdles and 200m, along with the 4x400m relay, have all being canceled due to the extreme weather conditions in the Geneva area.
            There's going to be a bunch of very disappointed athletes who came all the way here that were denied an opportunity to get good times/distances for qualifying purposes or at least to show some good form, Charlie Dobson for instance in the 200m, and Georgina Adam, Finette Agyapong and Shannon Hylton in the women's equivalent.

            There were some good performances though, including that Italian national 400m record from Davide Re, and Charlie Myers getting an 11cm PB, equaling the UK U-23 record and the World Championship qualifying standard (5.71m) in the pole vault.
