        Rojas is an incredible jumper.

        Tsegay also in absolutely scintillating form in Madrid and a clear favourite for the WICs.

          That was it for Rojas, we’ll have to wait a while.

            Rojas has the worst technique I have seen for a tjer, but just look at her. Her jumps are not important when you are built like her. The other top tjumpers in the OG at Tokyo were a different species. Incredible. ??The greatest tripler males in the last 30 years were not 40 cms better than everyone else because they were relatively normal in physique.

              A significant result missed here was from the Polish Indoor Championships yesterday with Ewa Swoboda winning the 60m title in 6.99, becoming just the 10th woman in athletics history to break the 7 second barrier indoors. It's the first time since 2018 that this has been done (Ahoure, 6.98 in Birmingham, UK) and she also becomes just the fifth woman to go sub 7 seconds this century, (Ahoure, ETH 6.98 also in Birmingham in 2017, SAFP 6.97 in Sopot 2014 and LaVerne Jones Ferrette's 6.97 in Stuttgart 2010).

              Swoboda becomes just the third European sprinter to achieve this feat, and the first since disgraced Greek Katerina Thanou ran 6.96 to win the 1999 WIC in Maebashi.

                Very impressive from Swoboda.

                One has go think that DAS could go sub-7 if she targeted it, but Swoboda will definitely be hard to beat in Belgrade.

                Absolutely, and it’s going to be interesting to see what she does outdoors this year.

              Another intriguing result, 6.05 for Chris Nilsen, US record and equal world lead. I think Mondo has more in him, but it’s a real competition at the WICs now.

              Another significant result from the Polish Indoor Championships on the weekend came from the women's 400m, where in a hotly contested three way race, Justyna Swiety-Ersetic came through to win in a new Polish national record of 51.04. the 5th fastest time in the world this year. Former national record holder Anna Kielbasinska took the second automatic qualifying place with 51.20, and third placer Natalia Kaczmarek in 51.24. With the veteran Iga Baumgart-Witan clocking her third fastest ever indoor 400m with 52.10 in fourth, that Polish 4x400m squad is looking very strong indeed, especially with how relatively weak the USA squad will be when it comes to the champs, (the US have five women in the 2022 top 15 in terms of times, yet all of them are part of collegiate circuit and will not be up for selection to the team heading to Belgrade - US Indoor championship winner this year, Lynna Irby, with 51.88 this indoor season, is ranked just 21st in the world, well behind all the Poles, let alone flying Dutch women Femke Bol and Lieke Klaver).

              Elsewhere in Europe, there were more fast 400m times, this time from the Czech Indoor champs, as two time European U23 400m champion, Lada Vondrova ran 51.90, her second best ever indoors, to win the national title. Meanwhile in the men's 400m, Patrik Sorm defeated three time world indoor champion Pavel Maslak in 46.36, just a tenth down in his 46.25 PB from couple of weeks earlier.

              And at the Paris Indoor Meeting yesterday, Mujinga Kambundji continued her recent good form to win the 60m in 7.06, just a week after winning the Swiss Indoor title in 7.05.

                World Record!

                Mondo over 6.19 on his 3rd attempt in Belgrade. Just clipped the bar but it stayed on.

                Tentoglou 8.25, Montler 8.23

                Serbian NR for Anja Lukic, 2nd in the W 60 Hurdles in 8.14.

                    Mondo’s a piece of work, but he’s had quite a few attempts at that. Onwards and upwards to 6.20 which feels like a real landmark.

                    Never quite sure what ‘NR’ means in the indoor season but Ponzio’s effort is only a NIR, being 1.30 down on Andrie’s outdoor mark.

                      Impressive 7.04 for St Lucia's Julien Alfred at the NCAAs. Her 100m pb is only 11.39, but that dates back three years (when she was only 17, she will turn 21 this coming June) and is surely in line for serious revision this year.

                        Both she and Alfred turned out to have shot their bolt in the semis, Adeleke was last in the 60m final and Alfred 5th.

                        Adeleke better in the 200, 22.88 for 4th. Abby Steiner won with a very impressive 22.16, and it's not even a SB.

                        That's an impressive time for Adeleke who doesn't strike me as a 60m type sprinter.

                      That's a shame because I've heard she has a thing for miserable old geezers!
