    Meshesha looked brilliant. Not sure what the commentary was on about calling that not particularly fast...

    Katie Nageotte doesn’t look the athlete she did last year.

    4:00.16 for Georgia Griffith, a 3.8s PB ! No. 3 all-time Aussie.

    I've never noticed before what a shuffler Freweyni Hailu is, albeit a very fast one.

    ETH looks supreme in Rabat. Although I suspect she will try to avoid racing SAFP (or vice versa) until the WCs.

    11.08 (-0.4) for Swoboda in Chorzow. Kielbasinska 11.22 PB in third. Throw in Pia + Adamek or Stefanowicz (?) and the Polish 4x1 is one to watch on a European level.

    Julian Wagner (GER), runs 10.12 (+0.1m/s) to win the 100m A Final in Regensburg earlier today, a European Championship qualifier and the 24 year old's 2nd fastest time ever.

    Some good action in the Arona multi events meet, with Chari Hawkins following up a 13.30 (+0.2m/s) 100m hurdles with a PB of 1.85m in the high jump. Spaniard Claudia Conte, carrying the country's hopes after Maria Vicente's injury on the eve of the World Indoors ended her outdoor season, cleared 1.82m in the high jump, after 13.98 in the hurdles.

    As Jimbo points out, when majors have historically been later, better performances have also been later. Some athletes will time their peak incorrectly but most will have adjusted fine.

    At the Manchester Silver meeting there were National Records for two of the minnow countries of athletics.

    An Argentine NR for Florencia Borelli in 3rd in the 5000 with 15:23.83, taking almost 13s off her 3 year old record. That's a third NR for her in 2022 after the Marathon record in February and the 3000 in April (also a South American record)!

    A Danish NR for Mette Graversgaard in the 100H with 12.99 (-2.0), taking 0.12s off the NR she already had.

    There was further success for Denmark with 18yo Joel Ibler Lillesø improving his 5000 PB & U20NR by 2s to 13:29.58 !

    At yesterday's Jessheim 1500m Elite meeting in Norway, Georgia Griffith (AUS) took 0.22s off her 2018 PB to win in 4:03.95 and bag herself a Eugene standard.

    Surely you’d need to see when their focus of that specific year was - most majors are in August, so not a surprise most would usually peak then. Can’t use that data for this year, other than to see if they usually time their peak well e.g. someone like DAS usually peaks at a champs - not because of the date!

    Infrequent competitions until later in the year seems to me to be a default position for many athletes espececially British athletes, most of whom i expect to be at their best after the WC, but in time for CG and the Euros.
    Interesting to note that, in the Road to Oregon site where those individual athletes of the UK and the rest of Europe are set out in the section called "qualified by Rankings" as opposed to"by Entry Standard",when you click on athletes names, time and again,their 5 performances shown against each such name, the dates of the 5 shown are after the WC date for this year. That suggests that the athletes are competing better in August and into September. Too late for their peak to be by July 15.
    The intensity of three major Champs in just over a month will, in my view, catch many out, who have perhaps not gauged the season correctly.

    Wonders will never cease 2 - hammer competition in a normal meeting! Hopefully at least one of our 3 69m ladies will enter the 70m club.

    Another meet where Okoye is conspicuous by his absence. Presuming injured.

    Startlists are now out for today's Continental Tour meetings ...

    Bydgoszcz (Gold) - https://szewinska.domtel-sport.pl/
    Manchester (Silver) - https://manchester2022.microplustiming.com/index.php

    Wonders will never cease! There's a startlists & results page for a British meeting that doesn't look like a relic of the internet circa 1998!

    I like the look of the Women's 5000 in Manchester - a lot of my favourite European athletes in that ... Mishmash, Klara Lukan, Mariana Machado, Cristina Ruiz, Jenny Nesbitt ...

    Happio was the 2019 U23 champion. Sibilio (ITA) is the current (2021) champion.

    Two of them actually! ... Katharina Trost's 4:04.29 was a PB not SB.

    There's a crack in the armour!
    D'oh! I knew he was the U23 champ, but forgot the year he'd done it! (Which is inexcusable, since I watched the whole thing live on the excellent European Athletics streams of the 2019 and 2021 events!)

    As for the Trost one, well in my defence, the results site did flash up that it was a season's best, so I went along with what they showed. Again, I'll correct that error too.

    Thanks for catching my error Lucky, I'll edit the comment immediately.
