    And her base speed is why she will be WC in a couple of weeks. Sadly we have no 400m hurdlers of remotely world class and the last one to be able to run fast was a great fave , Akabussi , who as you recall was a National champion on the flat.The reason why Dos Santos is a likely medallist is his flat speed ,mid 44s

    That run from McLaughlin means she has 4 of the 5 fastest times in history.

    Gunnell is now only the 11th fastest all time with the 10 ahead of her having recorded 23 separate performances better her ex WR. That event has moved on hugely in contrast with m800 where Coe’s NR is still the joint 9th fastest all time, tied with Amos with only Rudisha and Kipleter ahead of him.

    Yes - they'll take the 6th and 11th place guys. (Or are any of those above them in a rankings spot?)

    That's not how the US system works. An important principle of US selection is that they always take the biggest team they can. In events like the sprints and hurdles they tend to have so many athletes who are qualified for the Worlds that it is unlikely that someone who isn't qualified makes the first 3. For example, all 16 women's 100h semi-finalists had the QT. In an event where there are athletes in the first 3 at the US Trials who aren't qualified by mark or World Athletics ranking, they will go further down the order to fill their compliment up where they can.

    Not one to make a fuss about her victories and probably not surprised at her performance. Certainly contented at the post-race interview. Remarkable performance.

    A baptism of fire if he finals at Eugene with the Anericans and others.

    Looks like the USA will only be sending one representative to the World Champs in the men's 1500m, as Cooper Teare won the Trials final in slow, tactical, 3:45.86. He had the standard, indeed he is the no.1 American this year, so he's punched his ticket for a return appearance in this stadium in 3 weeks time.
    However, the 3 other men who had the required time, Johnny Gregorek, Yared Nuguse and Henry Wynne, all finished outside of the remaining podium places, in 6th, 11th and 12th respectively. With USATF's stringent and ruthless selection policy for major championships, those men paid the price for messing around in such a slow race and will not get a chance to represent the USA in a home championships.

    And Keni Harrison looks ready to challenge Camacho Quinn with a 12.34 WL.

    Here it is. Made to look ridiculously easy.

    I'm pretty sure the opposite is true. Hodgkinson's chances of breaking the world record are *greatly* enhanced by the existence of Mu.

    Amazing that the Spear God only picked up 2 bronzes at Euro level. But with his 6 globals and WRs I reckon he sleeps pretty well at night. What he did in Sydney must have broken Backley’s heart. And Parviainen must have been even more upset when his 91.31 opener in Edmonton wasn’t enough.

    Bloody hell, Crouser…..his 4th best effort was 22.98….three 23m puts in his series!!! 23.01, 23.11 and 23.12.

    Kovacs in 2nd with a mere 22.87.

    In wHT Deanna Price who last year became only the 2nd woman over 80m could only finish 4th.
