    I can't believe folks aren't mentioning Athing Mu's 800m semi final win, where she ran 1:57.55 and dragged a bunch of others into setting substantial PBs too, like Sage Hurta who was 2nd in 1:58.30, and Olivia Baker, 3rd in 1:58.46, both of them going sub 1:59 for the first time and taking more than a second off their prior PBs.

    You would think that a drugs related ban in between would negate that, but no.

    Regrettably, Coleman gets a wild card to the champs as defending world champion.

    Ran even faster in the semi final, setting a 9.76 (+1.4m/s) WL and going to = 6th on the world all time list and = 3rd on the USA all time list, joining Christian Coleman (Booo!) and Trayvon Bromell. And talking of that idiot Coleman... he was a no show in the final after running a 9.87 SB in his semi final heat, where he finished 3rd behind Bromell and Bracey-Williams.... That was almost the best result of the entire US Trials right there!

    And there are big questions about Bromell's big match temperament.

    Yes, interesting to see how Jacobs has recovered from what sounds like a rather nasty illness. If not for that I wouldn't have counted him out to spoil the party for the Americans.

    Yep. Has to be favourite now. Bromell ran well in the semi but not quite so well in the final although he finished 3rd behind Marvin Bracy so is on the team.

    Jacobs is running at the Italian Champs, so it will be interesting to see what he does.

    Shericka Jackson wins the Jamaican trials with 10.77. ETH only third.

    Yohan Blake is back in form, beating the young pretender Oblique Seville (9.85 and 9.88 respectively).

    Thanks OH. It does make sense to do 800 at Worlds and then 400 at Commonwesths for Korir I think.

    He gets a WC as DL winner. It does probably mean he won't be doing 800 in Birmingham though, as Kenya have said all their athletes will be doubling at WCs and Commonwealths, and no extra slot available there.

    Just to clarify, is he not running 800 at trials or not planning to contest it at Worlds?

    Mujinga Kambundji has run a Swiss NR 10.89. (Original post not approved, not clear why.)
