    It's because it wasn't surprising. This was a 3:29 man and an Olympic finalist demolishing a field they should have demolished. Excellent to see, and the UK Champs are going to be brutal.

    Maybe people think the performance speaks for itself? You’re right that it was excellent and it bodes well for the summer, but is it not possible just to say that, and perhaps start a friendly conversation over, without using it as a weapon to beat everyone else up over?

    I wouldn't say Chris Dennis is awful. For truly awful commentators just look to America. They specialise in that! Chris Dennis is still way better than any of them.

    Chris Derrick BTW is a US distance runner.

    Its mentioned, yeah, but with none of the usual hyped up enthusiastic stuff that ensues about ordinary performances by some of our athletes that have been taking place in a number of events these past weeks.

    Mentioned in the U.K. and 1500 threads actually.

    quite surprised the chief posters have not noted with copious approval or commented on the Jakes coming first and second in the 1500m Rabat today, other than Mysterys brief note about the race.
    Wightman looked dominating in the last 200m of the race,and he is now ranked no.2 in the world as of today, but then it is probably not as interesting or significant as some the frequent posts of the last couple of days here on the indifferent multis performances by our women Heptathletes. .

    The Ethiopian Men's 10,000m Trials were in Hengelo tonight:

    1 Selemon Barega 26:44.73
    2 Tadese Worku 26:45.91
    3 Berihu Aregawi 26:46.13
    4 Yomif Kejelcha 26:49.39

    The Women's are tomorrow at the FBK Games (a race which also includes Eilish McColgan). No idea when their trials are for the other distance events!

    Apparently a couple of Sydney's hurdles in the wrong place so time probably won't count. But she is clearly in excellent shape regardless.

    Chris Derrick is an awful commentator, he was abysmal on the Eurosport coverage of the Olympics last year.

    Crammy was excellent, gently pointing out his daft comment.

    Was that clock right on the last lap of the Steeple?? El B took the bell at 7:03.0 on the clock and ended up at 7:58.28 ... A 55.3 last lap ! It looked fast but not that fast. If correct, it must be the fastest ever Steeple last lap? Or maybe Ezekiel Kemboi ran a quicker one?

    Two athletes going sub-8 in different races within 1 week - that's never happened before.

    Contrasting fortunes for the 400H Olympic champions today. McLaughlin ran 51.61 in Nashville, making me suddenly less confident about my Femke Bol prediction!

    Hope it's not too serious for Warholm.

    Oh no, Warholm pulls up injured, is he going to be out of the WCs?

    Yes, a very good race and a nice PB.

    That was a very confident performance by Markovc.
