    LOL... That should read indoor JUNIOR record! D'OH! <Facepalm> That's been fixed now, thanks for pointing out my gaffe Carterhatch!

    Women's 400m now... Hannah Williams, Ama Pipi, Amy Allcock and Emily Diamond are all in the first heat...

    Deborah Sananes wins it in 51.58... Pipi who had a strong opening 200m faded quite badly on the home straight, while Allcock couldn't stay with Sananes' pace over the final 100m. Hannah Williams didn't have such a good race, never really getting into her running and never being in contention.

    The second 400m heat features Amber Anning..... And that is a big PB for her as she leans to the line even with Patterson of Ireland, going sub 53 seconds for the first time in her blossoming career. 52.61 is what the clock stopped at.

    Now it's the turn of the women in the 400m hurdles, with the first heat featuring Meghan Beesley, Lina Nielsen and Jessie Knight of GBR, with Lea Sprunger of Switzerland the big danger.


    And after leading for the majority of the race, Beesley is caught on the line by Femke Bol, who sliced nearly a second off her personal best with her 55.95 clocking, the 19 year old making her mark. Beesley comes 2nd with 55.98, while Lina Nielsen, Knight and Sprunger were further down the field.

    In the 2nd heat, Jessica Turner wins well in a big season's best of 56.41, her second fastest time ever.

    Next up is Alex Knibbs, Alastair Chalmers and Jack Lawrie...

    In the end it's another Brit, Kris McCallister of Thames Valley, running from lane 8, storming down the final 100m and pipping Chalmers on the line, and in doing so absolutely smashing his lifetime best to pieces! His lifetime best before today was 50.36, but here he crossed line in 49.92, going sub 50 seconds for the first time. Well done.

    Chalmers looks like he might have also gone sub 50 seconds as well, which would not only be a big PB too, but also move him higher up the UK U-20 lists for the 400m Hurdles.

    [Edit]: Confirmation of Alastair Chalmers finishing time is that he just missed out on going sub 50 seconds, but did lower his own U-20 UK record by 3/100ths of a second, to 50.07

    Seb Rodger goes in the opening heat of the 400m hurdles in what looks like near-perfect conditions in Geneva.

    Rodger wins the heat in convincing style, though he'll be possibly frustrated that he could go faster, clocking a season's best of 49.58, but still 2/10ths away from the Doha qualifying time required (49.30). It is his fastest time in a couple of seasons though, ironically enough, the time not only exactly matching his 2017 season's best, but that was set at the same venue too!

    First piece of British related news from this meet.... Dai Greene is a no-show in his 400m hurdles heat.

    Might as well give this it's own page since quite a few British athletes will be competing in Geneva tomorrow, and Vinco will be streaming the whole event live on their page too.

    In the women's 100m, Kristal Awuah, fresh from an 11.27 time at the Parvo Nurmi Games in Finland (her 3rd quickest 100m run ever), she'll be looking to get the World Championship qualifying standard (11.24) as she faces Carolle Zahi of France, Crystal Emmanuel of Canada and Morolake Akinosun of the USA.

    Finnette Agyapong, 22 and reigning European U-23 200m champion, already has the standard for this year's event in Gavle in July (ran 23.39 at Leiden, standard is 23.40), but is likely shooting for the World Championship standard (23.02) as she lines up for the 200m against the likes of Sarah Atcho and Gloria Hooper.

    HAA and Joel Fearon will contest the men's 100m, while it will be interesting to see if Charlie Dobson, last year's world junior silver medalist in the 200m, will discover some of that form again after making a rather modest start to this season (SB just 21.34, PB 20.53 at WJ's). It's more than likely he'll be looking for the Euro U-23 standard here (20.80).

    In the women's 400m, a trio of British athletes will compete and looking for form and standards for various events this summer, Amy Allcock, Emily Diamond and, most intriguingly, Amber Anning. Having set a UK indoor junior 400m record this winter, Anning is certainly one to watch for the future. With the European U-20's also coming up this summer in Boras, Sweden (a week after the U-23's), the 18 year old already has the qualifying time required from her record breaking run indoors in February (53.00i), but fascinating to see what she can do outdoors in her first outing of the summer.

    On the men's side, 22 year old Cameron Chalmers returns to the venue where he set his outdoor PB last year (45.75), while in the 400m hurdles his younger brother Alastair will line up with 2011 World Champion Dai Greene, who is desperately looking for form and fitness

    There's also a bunch of British interest in the field, with 3 competitors in the men's pole vault and 3 competitors in the women's long jump, so there is plenty for folks to see and look out for during the 5 hours of athletics.
