    Although Melak and Mengeshe are down to compete for Ethiopian in the 5K, I read that the chaotic fight between their Olympic committee, interested only in medals, are at war with their selection authority who based their choices on the Trials in Hengelo..
    Apparently Edris and Gebrehiwet have been selected for the 5K, even though they did not qualify for the 5 K. I will stick with the choices as shown to be competing officially; why do WA allow this dishonest shenanigans. This info comes from Letsrun. com. It certainly may screw up ones predictions.Why cannot Kenya and Ethiopia behave in a transparent way.?? Are they going to be allowed to just turn up and WA turn a blind eye. Lucky, any observations???

    If when I get my predictions out tomorrow I get the dreaded unapproved I will set it out again, even in separate sections. I am quite hopeless at copy and paste stuff. Fingers crossed.

    Thank you. I can't imagine that Schippers was in anyone's top 3 in 2021. Great that she is still competing though but she is no SAFP.

    Schippers has pulled out of the 100 as well, in case that affects anyone's predictions.

    Schedule rubbish for doubling and he wants to focus on 1500.

    This took me ages. Like Reece Prescod, I was meant to be doing the paid job, but instead ate a Kit Kat and ploughed through the rankings ! Please let me know if I have made any errors in entries, such as athletes who aren't competing (not in predictions, you disagree with). Thank you for organising

    I'm not sure I'm clever enough to do this, but as a heads up Ingebritsen has pulled from the 5K
