    Just reviewing while we have a break until Worlds: Hiwot and Salpeter outside my 10 replaced by Yeshaneh and Gotytom. YY not considered until her second attempt. Normally a rule of mine however impressive a debut is, to not include. Gidey could change that rule.

    I can't imagine they'd exist yet? Some countries haven't announced their selections yet have they, and some of those that have made announcements have named reserves too (e.g., Ethiopia) so there's no way of knowing yet what the team is.

    No, I don’t but it can be a pointer sometimes towards future performance. I don’t think Gemechu passes Brigid with a few hundred metres to go if Brigid was totally focussed in Lisbon. Kosgei has bigger fish to fry in the fall.
    I think Gidey will finish between the WR and YY’s Hamburg debut time.

    Do you use half marathon performances for your rankings? In her post-race interview the winner Tsehay Gemechu said, "The weather is very hot".

    Letesenbet Gidey is due to make her marathon debut in Valencia in December!

    Joyciline disappointed but Yeshaneh rises from just outside my top 20 to somewhere between 6 and 10.

    even though her 3 previous marathon finishes were 7th, 8th, and 8th they were deep fields of all the best. melly just needs to repeat a 2.18.xx to get a 3rd or 4th at one of those [london, Valencia, whereever else lots of top ten run

    The 2:18's keep on coming - https://forum.athleticsweekly.com/fo...1773#post41773 - and there's the prospect of Romania being represented in your Top 10 at some time in the future?!

    Jeptum impressive in Paris. So many went too fast early but none troubled Judith . Still no change to my ten. Women’s marathonning is deeper than ever.

    Hiwot Gebrekidan at 11 now and still no Seidel in the ten. A fourth in Boston would be the minimum to make a case.

    I had joyciline at 1, Peres 2, Brigid 3.
    Now swap 2 and 3.
    I think joyciline wins Boston from Peres.
    Rankings to 20 plus another 8 honourable mentions. Ichiyama at 13.

    Sorry, I haven't got around to doing my rankings yet.

    After Tokyo this morning do you have Kosgei jumping any spots? I presume that pre-race you had her 2nd or 3rd (above or behind Jepkosgei)?

    Do your rankings go beyond 10 athletes? If so, where do you have Mao Ichiyama? A very good résumé since March 2020 but still seeking that first sub-2:20. In the mid-teens perhaps?
