    Loved that Women's 5000 in the downpour. A ballsy performance by Karoline Grovdal to really push the pace on from halfway and she was rewarded by taking 6 seconds off Ingrid Kristiansen's 36 year old national record. Great run too by Alicia Monson in 5th, 14:31.11, the no.3 US all-time but, given the heavy rain and uneven pace, I'd say it's probably a superior performance to the 14:23.92 of the burrito-chomping NR holder, run in perfect West Coast conditions, hugging the rail closely with perfect pacing and no other runners getting in the way.

    Fun fact ... Letesenbet Gidey has only won one of her last sixteen 5000m finals (going back to 2017) - the race (OK, time trial) where she set the WR !

    Great to see Our Laura getting back into some kind of good form.

    Nice Mile to finish, with the European Record outcome in doubt right to the end.

Jakob just missed it in a competitive, well paced race, pulling away from Ollie Hoare (who set a Area and National record of 3:47.48 coming 2nd) with a 3:46.46.
    A PB for Jake, but he was lacking a little of his usual strong finish. Apparently not 100 %

    Femke lacks a tiny bit of hurdling skills, has a great run in, but she will be a likely silver medal in Eugene.Long shot prediction is she will run under 52 secs this year.

    How times change... Back in 2018, Zazini, the South African out in lane 8 of the men's 400m hurdles just now, was the up and coming athlete in the event. He'd already won the World U18 championships the year before, and came in as the undisputed no.1 for the World U20s that season in Tampere. And he would live up to those expectations and win in a-then PB time and well ahead of the rest of the field... a field that included Dos Santos.

    Unlike the South African, Dos Santos seemed to come out of nowhere, though he had won the South American junior championships the year before. But he wasn't really considered to be a medal contender. Yet through the rounds, he got faster as faster, setting PBs and ended up grabbing a bronze medal with another lifetime best performance. However, not many thought that the Brazilian would be the one to jump out of the junior ranks up into the seniors and be a factor. That was believed to be Zazini.

    And yet, 4 years later, it's Dos Santos now who is the current world no.1, Olympic bronze medallist and one of the fastest men in history after his exploits last year in Tokyo. Zazini hasn't done bad by any stretch, yet here in Oslo, he was distanced by his Brazilian competitor by the final bend.

    47.27 from Dos Santos, what an athlete.
    It certainly puts pressure on Benjamin ,and Warholm will go to Eugene with concern over his condition.
    Great run by Hoare with a new Aussie record, makes up for disappointment that the number 1 Aussie is not fit this year after his covid issues.

    It's a NR, WL, DLR, PB and Jakob rises to 6th on the world all time list over the distance, leaping ahead of Said Aouta and Alan Webb.

    Compare her winning time to Kirani’s, there’s a very good chance she’ll run under 52 this year

    Obviously not in the shape tonight that she was in Hengelo.

    Did I recall the poster who reckons Eilish a possible medallist at Eugene?

    In direct contrast to McKinna's continued struggles with her new technique, over in Spain and the Castellon meeting, Amelia Strickler won the shot put there with 18.18m, a new PB!

    Deeply underwhelming 16.64 from McKinna. If that’s rotational it’s not championship ready.

    Won by Ealey becoming the 2nd women over 20m this year with 20.13.

    A complete set of heavy throws in Oslo!! wSP. mHT and wDT.

    No spear though. Wouldn’t have happened in the Thork’s day.
