  • 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.

        • Don't sleep on the Balkan Championships this weekend. There's lots of good athletes competing and some nice line-ups. The details are now updated in the latest document in the Live Streaming Links thread. Startlists at http://www.balkan-athletics.eu/2022/...%20Craiova.pdf

          One thing that really stood out from the startlists ... ... Ivana Vuleta is in the Long Jump AND Triple Jump.

          Before last weekend she hadn't Triple Jumped in competition for 8 years but at the Vojvodina Championships (!) six days ago she jumped 13.80, improving her PB by 2cm. There's a nice field for that event with Karydi, Danismaz, Nacheva & Akgoz (TUR) who've all jumped 13.79 or better this year. So, she might not have it all her own way.

            Vojvodina is a region of Serbia of which the capital is the country's second city, Novi Sad. I suppose it's a bit like Chris Tomlinson doing the TJ at the Northern Champs about 15 years ago having concentrated on LJ for several years.

        • It's tipping it down in Kuortane, Finland for the Silver meeting.

            Yeah, heavy rain, expected to last several hours, and a "high" temperature of 14C throughout... Don't expect any worthwhile performances there, certainly nothing for anybody looking WC qualifying times/distances/heights.

        • Natch, the worst June weather all over the place for track and field.

          • The rain in Kuortane is bothering all the Women's Jav throwers except Liz Gleadle who's thrown a 63.33 SB. Two rounds to go.

            In the LJ Kristian Pulli nearly had a nasty accident, his foot slipping on the board and landing very awkwardly on one leg.

              Must be relatively localised as we’re in Stockholm and it’s a glorious evening here…..

                All of 500 miles away or whatever.

            • Brilliant finish by Benjamin Robert in France, but it was definitely a bit physical there. In a champs there would be protests.

              • At the Paris DL meeting, French 800m no.1 Benjamin Robert smashes his PB with a 1:43.75 as he barged through past Tony Van Diepen and countryman Tual to take the win in the last 30m or so. Aussie Peter Bol was 2nd and took apart the Area and National records with a 1:44.00. Van Diepen himself set a 2nd consecutive PB with 1:44.14 in 3rd place, while Gabriel Tual also ran a lifetime best with 1:44.23.

                • Robert DQ, not a big surprise really, it was pretty blatant.

                      • At the Madrid Silver meeting there were 4 national records, all European women's ...

                        Sara Fantini improved her own 74.86 NR in the Hammer, first to 75.76 and then to 75.77! Laura Redondo (ESP) added 37cm to her NR with 72.00.

                        The other 2 NRs were for Denmark:

                        Ida Karstoft (DEN) improved her 200m mark again, winning in 22.68 (-0.5). Paula Sevilla ran sub-23 for the first time, 22.86.

                        In the 100H Mette Graversgaard won in 12.89 (-1.2), improving her recent NR by 0.03s. Sarah Lavin improved her PB by 0.01s to 12.93.

                        Neele Eckhardt-Noack won the TJ with 14.48, a European Lead and outdoor PB.

                        Luguelin Santos showed some form in the 400, winning in 45.09 SB ahead of Ireland's Christopher O'Donnell, 45.26 PB.

                        Ellie Baker was a very good 2nd in the 1500, 4:06.64 SB, beating some good names like L Hall, Trost, Perez & Mezulianikova. After a 63.7s first lap the pace dropped to 68.8 on the 2nd lap, the altitude obviously doing them no favours.

                          On Day 1 of the Balkan Championships ...

                          Vuleta won the TJ with 14.24 PB (+1.1) from Tugba Danismaz (TUR), 14.07.

                          Luiza Gega won the Steeple in 9:17.89, her 2nd fastest time ever.

                          Claudia Bobocea pipped Anita Horvat to the 800m title, 2:01.84 to 2:02.05.

                          18yo Adriana Vilagos won the Javelin with 60.51.

                          Three men jumped 8m in the LJ, headed by Gabriel Bitan (ROU), 8.07 (+1.7).

                          Mikhailo Havryliuk (UKR) won the Hammer with 75.49, just edging Serghei Margiev, 75.24.
