    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 ...

    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.

    The Chopra effect maybe and all were born in the same years that the French hammer throwers were doing their stuff, so plenty of time to improve. In contrast only Helander from traditional powerhouse Finland has scraped 80m after looking for all the world like a 90m man in the making a few years ago. Things change.
    They’ve got a decent female javelin thrower too, Rani, she’s thrown a national record already this year 63.82

    Genzebe Dibaba's days on the track are over I think. DNF'ing in a not hugely fast 5000 tonight in Montreuil, she hasn't run a good track race since July 2019. Maybe she can carve out a good career on the roads? She ran that 65:15 Half in December 2020.

    Elsewhere at this meeting, in his season's debut at 800 Olympic Champ Emmanuel Korir was well beaten into 6th, over a second behind winner Collins Kipruto, 1:45.23. Algeria's Slimane Moula was finishing like a train again but couldn't quite nab 2nd.

    At the Meeting De Montreuil, an exciting men's 400m hurdles ended with a French victory as Ludvy Vailliant just out-dipped 2016 Olympic bronze medallist and 2016 European Champion, Yasmani Copello, and fellow Frenchman and current European U23 400m hurdles champion, Wilfred Happio*, on the line, getting a 49.10 SB as a result, while the other two clocked 49.11, also season's bests. In fact, everyone down to 7th place recorded their best times of the year so far and also went sub-50 seconds.

    A few minutes later, Diribe Welteji, who ran so well in Ostrava just a couple of days ago, went sub 4 minutes again in the 1500m, running a 3:59.48 meeting record and well clear of the rest of the field.
    Fellow Ethiopian Mebrhit Mekonen, just 17, came 2nd with 4:03.60 SB, while 3rd and 4th places went to the Germans Katarina Trost (4:04.29 PB) and Konstanze Klosterhalfen (4:04.60) who is continuing her comeback from injury.

    (*Correction: As pointed out by LuckySpikes, Wilfred Happio was the European U23 champion over the 400m hurdles in 2019, not in 2021. My bad!)

    Last week at the Indian Grand Prix meeting in Bhubaneswar, 20yo Yashvir Singh threw 82.13 to become the 12th Indian to throw over 80m.

    In 2022 alone there's been 3 new members of the Indian 80m club. One of those, Rohit Yadav (also 20), threw 80.88 at this meeting.

    Letsile Tebogo’s WJR has been rejected for ratification because of issues over the starting gun. Also not accepted the Jamaican women’s 4x1 WJR because they neglected to do all the drugs tests.

    Angelina Topic has jumped 1.95 (a 4cm PB)! She's still only 16 (turns 17 next month). Of course, she has the HJ'ing genes!
    Eleftheria Christogeorgou (GRE), 1.93 (a 6cm PB!) & Marija Vukovic 1.93 - both also on their 1.95 attempts.

    Then the TV broadcast finished and there doesn't seem to be any live results!
    Angelina Topic finished with 1.95, as did Vukovic who equalled her PB & NR.

    That's a Serbian NR for Topic and she also equals the age 16 world record (which was set indoors). She's now joint 5th with Mahooch on the World all-time U18 list. The U18 WR is 1cm higher, shared by 4 athletes including Patterson & Cunningham.

    Pole Vault also ongoing with Sefanidi over 4.64 so far. Caudery only over 4.39.

    Kristal Awuah won the 100 in 11.40.
