    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).

    Hassan is another athlete who may just be not at her best by mid July. Have not heard from her yet.

      This years crowded calendar will produce other European and African performances way later than Eugene.
      Interesting point but given the WCs are the most high profile championships this year and DAS is the defending 200m champion, wouldn't she have factored the relatively early start in Eugene this year into her training and race programme?

        You'd definitely think so... her and John Blackie aren't stupid. 22.3 on 13th May is a very decent time, I expect her to be hard to beat in Eugene.

    • Good Women's 10,000 at the PAC-12 Championships with 4 athletes going sub-32:35, all running PBs (Sub-32 is rare in the NCAA).

      Abby Nichols (Colorado) won in a championship record 32:27.25 (16:34 / 15:53 splits) from Alessia Zarbo (Oregon & France). With her closing speed (66s last lap here) Nichols will be an NCAA title contender in 4 weeks time.

      Haley Herberg (Washington) led for 9,450m and really ratcheted the pace up in the second half of the race but she couldn't shake the other three off and finished 4th. Emily Covert (Colorado) was 3rd.

      • While those events with wind readings in Doha showed that it was gusty and therefore you may not be able to directly compare times between different races, there is little doubt for me that Dos Santos' run was the track performance of the night. 47.24 when a number of stalwart exponents were outside 50 was outstanding.

          Complete agreement on your comments; that would have been sub 47 in normal conditions. Gave the American a surprise, what??

            Yes, dos Santos has been training in the United States for a while and seems to like the country. It doesn't seem like he shares your obsessive hatred of Americans.

          I am surely not the only one here who believes that Dinas best sprints will be in August and not middle July . The talents at Eugene will be formidable; 2 or 3 Jamaicans, Thomas,and possibly Steiner, maybe Ofili,.

            I just would be immensely surprised that a coach/athlete pair who have consistently shown the ability to peak at the right time would suddenly get it wrong? What evidence suggests they will this year when they got it right in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019?

        • Big PB and NR for Ireland's Louise Shanahan in the 800 in Belfast. She ran 1:59:42 beating the now former NR-holder Ciara Mageean. What's more it was a big negative split, something like 60.5 / 58.9 !

            I think that's Ciara's time, Louise ran 1.59.39. Good race.

            No, Mageean was about 3m back so would have been just under 2:00. Shanahan's time was corrected to 1:59.42.

        • Over at the Memoriał Wiesława Czapiewskiego in Bydgoszcz, Poland, a World Combined Events Tour Gold meeting, WIC pentathlon silver medallist Adrianna Sulek has made a good start to her outdoor season. A A 13.70 (-0.3m/s) 100m hurdles, followed by a 1.87m PB in the high jump, a near PB 13.20m in the shot put and a 24.34 (+0.2 m/s) 200m, means she finished day 1 on 3777 points, a 267 point lead.

            • Some impressive sprinting overnight from the NCAA conference champs.

              At the SEC champs, Favour Ofili won the head to head in both sprints against Abby Steiner, winning the 100m in 10.93 to 11.02 and the 200m in 22.04 to 22.07. At the Big 12 Champs Julien Alfred clocked 10.81. The women's sprints should be a highlight of next month's NCAA are and 60m champ Melissa Jefferson ran 10.88 to win the Sunbelt Champs.

              Also at the SEC champs, Britton Wilson clocked up an impressive 400/400H double in 50.05 & 53.75. And Matthew Boling beat Joseph Fanbulleh in the Men's 200m 20.01 to 20.13.

                I don't think so, I think it's just a common Nigerian surname.

                Yeah paul , "Ofili" is a pretty common name in Nigeria. I should know, since my parents are from there and I've known a few people who have that name.

              On day 2, Adrianna Sulek manages a best of 6.14m (+0.3m/s) in the long jump, the third best jump overall, and retains her lead in the competition, though Czech athlete Dorata Skrivanova did close the gap slightly by 29 points with a 6.24 (+0.1m/s) PB.

              In the javelin, Sulek manages a best throw of 40.37m

              And in the final event, Sulek closed out the contest with a 2:11.25 800m run, scoring 946 points and therefore winning the heptathlon with a final total of 6290. She goes to 3rd in the world with that score, though I'm sure she's aiming for more in the upcoming Gotzis meeting.

                  Does also *really* make one wonder what DAS could do in a 4x4 if she had to.

                  Well, she ran a respectable 54.76 in April, so maybe somewhere between 53.00 and 53.50? If she focused on it, she'd probably be much faster, obviously, but these 400 relay splits by Wilson and Steiner hold up really well against the best splits ever. No woman has ever run under Marita Koch's 400 meter world record in a 4x400 relay split. Kratochvílová may have had a hand-timed 47.6 in 1982 and Marita Koch ran a split in 47.70 in 1984, but that's the closest.

                  I have no idea what Abby Steiner will focus on, but IF she chooses to focus on the 400, I believe she'll be crazy fast. She ran 300 meters (indoor) in 35.80 in December and the indoor one lap in 22.09 a couple of months ago, so she has the speed, strength and stamina and knows how to run the curve.

                • What can we say about these College kids with another 3 weeks of prelims and the NCAA finals to come in early June
                  Ofili is Nigerian and Alfred is from St.Lucia. Of course, how the outstanding young USA sprinters will fair if they enter the USA trials on the 23rd June is a matter of real conjecture.
