      Gidey debuts in Valencia and within ten days we should see her competitors there. At another website, I have listed 14 I think could be brave and rested enough to step up to the challenge. Some have yet to compete in this second half of the year, others have had a DNS or a DNF. If they are not injured, they could be heading for Spain?

Kosgei has the WL now, but I believe 3 or 4 times could usurp it by years end. Gidey is the obvious one in Valencia, but Brigid herself may go again, and YY may take more minutes off her debut. A fourth sub 2.16 might come from Bekere or Dereje.
          None of the five named went sub 2.16 but assefa, beriso, and Ruth did

            I imagine London start list may be available in the next week. Imagine an all-star set of seven women going toe-to-toe.
