    • Looking at the Eugene startlists, it seems that Nicola McDermott has married. She now has the unusual surname, Olyslagers !

      What a busy day on the Continental Tour with 4 meetings in Europe! Here's the main results from 3 of the meetings (I haven't watched the jumps meeting in Kallithea yet so don't know the results.)

      Huelva (ESP) - Bronze
      In the W 400 Paulino's compatriot Fiordaliza Cofil ran a 50.38 PB - she won the Ibero-American Championships a few days ago in a 50.64 PB. In 2nd was Lithuania's Modesta Juste Morauskaite in 50.49 - a European lead, NR and a massive outright PB by 1.14s (she ran 51.63 indoors this year).

      There were also big PBs in both the Men's and Women's Steeples with possible relevance to the sharp end at the European Championships ... ...

      Victor Ruiz (ESP) ran 8:16.42 for a Eugene standard and smashing his PB by 9+ seconds. He's no youngster either, at 28yo. Mehdi Belhadj (FRA) won in 8:16.39.

      In the Women's Steeple Alice Finot (FRA) overhauled Aimee Pratt with 100m to go and ran 9:21.41, way inside the 9:30 Eugene standard, a 24s PB (!!) and a new French NR, taking 4s off Sophie Duarte's record from 2009. It's not totally out of the blue though - she ran 8:46 on the flat indoors last year. However, she's 31 and seems to have come to the sport late - WA has her first result in 2016. She ran two 1500s that year and ended the year with a 4:44.9 PB in the 1500!
      Romania's Claudia Prisecaru (24) ran 9:33.41, a 13s PB.

      In the 5000 18yo Levy Kibet (another World XC Tour standout) ran a 13:03.09 PB. In 4th Ouassim Oumaiz (ESP) ran a big 13:06.74 PB and WCh standard.

      A NR for the Spanish women in the 4x100 with 43.30 and that was without their top sprinter, Maria Isabel Perez.

      Dessau (GER) - Bronze
      No fireworks from Mihambo this year - at this meeting last year she jumped 7.05. Just 6.49 this time.

      Vetter was a DNS, leaving the way for Weber to win with 85.02 ahead of Walcott & Vladlejch.

      Ferdinand Omanyala was beaten by Yupun Abeykoon Mudiyanselage who improved his Sri Lankan NR from 10.15 to 10.06 (-0.2).

      In the W 400 Kaczmarek comfortably got the better of Swiety-Ersetic, running 51.23.

      The M 800 was won by Tony van Diepen in 1:45.30 from Michal Rozmys, 1:45.39. Jamie Webb 5th in 1:46.28. Thomas Randolph did "a Dustin", i.e., going backwards at an alarming rate on the back straight, but he dropped out with 200 to go to save himself the ignominy of a 1:51 clocking.

      Lahti (FIN) - Challenger
      My anticipated Korte-Neziri-Hurske battle in the 100H didn't happen, this time Neziri not competing (after she ran in the heats). Hurske won the final in 12.92 from Jamaican youngster Crystal Morrison with a 12.93 PB. Korte 3rd in 13.10.

      High jumper Heta Tuuri improved her 2019 PB by 2cm to 1.90.

      Bianca Williams won in 11.35 (+2.1)

      Topi Raitinen won the 3000 in 7:53.61 from Alex George, 7:54.94.
      Can't help smiling at the problems our Youtube British female announcer would have with Yupun Abeykoon Mudiyanselage!!

        Someone needs to tell her that he's commonly known as Yupun Abeykoon! 'Cause with that 10.06 he'll get plenty of Gold meeting races.

        Not sure that would help, Jenny is a bit challenged with non English names at the best of times

    • Well, that Women's USA 10,000 Championship race was really rather good (and fast, especially the second half - look how fast they covered the last 4km). And the last 200m battle for the 3rd spot on the WCh team was brilliant!

        Yeah, but the Men's was a snoozefest for 24 laps. The Women were straight on it from the gun.

    • It's a good start for Kate O'Conner over in Gotzis, equalling her 100m hurdles PB of 13.94 (+0.6m/s), in a heat won by Germany's Sophie Weisenberg in a 13.56 PB

      In the 3rd heat, Swiss star Annik Kalin, heptathlon bronze medallist in the Euro U20's 2019, wins in 13.48 (+01.m/s)

      • BTW, is there any news about huge multi event talent Maria Vicente? I only ask because she would certainly have been lining up over in Gotzis such is her quality. Is she injured?

      • Kendell Williams takes the lead in Gotzis with 13.13. Kat last in that heat with 13.80. 13.41 for Holly.

        • Damian Warner runs a very impressive 10.14 to take the lead in the decathlon at Gotzis.

          Comment


          • Scenes in the men's long jump pit at Gotzis as Simon Ehammer produces a monster leap of 8.45m! (+0.2m/s) An outright world long jump lead, a NR and a WDB!

              Ehammer keeps producing these huge jumps within the 3 round format, he might do even better with 6 attempts

          • Adrianna Sulek sets a massive high jump PB of 1.92 to take early command of the heptathlon in Gotzis, with 2188 points.

            • Also impressing is the Estonian Liisa Maria Lusti in third place aftr two events. She's only 17, and I think it's her first senior hep.

                Only 1.68 for Kate in the High Jump.

                  Very poor shot though, only 10.68. Sulek scored a big pb of 13.79 (previous best 13.21). Holly 13.36, Kat 12.87.

                  Holly down to 7th overall, Kat 14th. Poor Lusti slips from 3rd to 17th.

                  Sulek developing a clear if not unassailable lead, but Vetter is now in 2nd place around 100 points away, and Kendell Williams not many points behind her in 4th.

                  • Sulek with another PB in the 200, a better outing from Kat, pleasing to see her finish it well after the injury in Tokyo

                      Yes, still below her best of course but enough to pull her up to 9th, and ahead of domestic rival Holly for the first time this weekend.

                      Sulek is having a great competition.

                  • Sulek with 3 PBs today, continuing her fine indoor form. Vetter 97 points back so between those 2 for the win.
