Garland racks a very impressive 8720, his PB a few months ago was 8196 and must now be considered a contender for a medal in Eugene

    Anna Hall finished the heptathlon with an 2:03 800, which could make the final heat very interesting at the WCs
    Is there any other athlete in dec history whose improvement over such a short compared with Garland.?

    • Dean Macey went from 7480 in 1996 to 8347 in the next dec he completed, admittedly three years later in 1999, but I think interrupted by injury. So over a long period chronologically, but a short one in terms of being able to train and compete.

          Thks for the info. What is tougher than Sams great improvement is possibly that the lower the original, the easier to improve. Garland was already at a world class level over 8100 with his improvement, but sadly the only guy here to excite me has gone backwards, Duckworth.

          • Nearly every field is a cracker at Doha this Friday, live on BBC2 at 5pm.

            Faith Kipyegon in the 3000 ... is this the start of a move up to the 5000 this year, leaving the door open for Our Laura to maybe win a world title? (Don't know what Hassan's plans are).

              I read Jason’s preview. Wondered where Canadia is?

          • Main excitement being Thomas Roehler’s return to the runway after 3 years.

            Safe in the knowledge nothing went wrong it always makes me chuckle when I watch his 93.90 and see just how close he got to spearing a totally impassive cameraman.

              I remember that. Complete commitment to the job by that cameraman - no flinching whatsoever!

          • The Men's Pole Vault at the Doha DL has been postponed until tomorrow due to high winds.

            • Nothing Kibet with the win in the 800m at Doha. Along with his World Indoor medal, he is absolutely one to watch, as he's still a junior next year!!! Rowden well in the mix in 4th place in a World Class field.

                Had more to give, got himself boxed. You always have to treat these early DL 800m & 1500m races like they’re a dress rehearsal for the First Round of the Worlds, I reckon.

            • SMU looked a bit below her best.

              Good scalp for Dos Santos.

              • DAS third in 200m in 22.37 - a little rusty.

                • Very impressed with Dos Santos. He's improved his 400m time to 44.54 this year. He's only 21 and come Eugene, he'll be right there with Warholm and Benjamin.

                  • Spear lists being rewritten.

                    But evidently v helpful conditions. Always been surprised there’s not a wind limit for spear and disc.

                    Anyhow, virtually a 6m PB for Peters taking him to within 2cm of 4th all time.

                      Yep, and along with Emmanuel Wanyonyi (17yo winner in Nairobi last week) the future of Kenyan 800m running looks very bright.

                      Fantastic finishes in the two 3000m races! I do enjoy watching Soufiane El Bakkali run. He's always good value for money!

                        No doubt at all.

                          I believe you will see DAS best this year in August, not in time for the WC.And I also think that applies to other elite Brits in the womens 800 and 1500m
                          This years crowded calendar will produce other European and African performances way later than Eugene.
