    Agree re Dos Santos & Aregawi.

    Dos Santos could maybe run 46.3 at the WCh? That might be enough to win.

    Aregawi's only bad race in the last year has been the World Indoors heat.

    The finishing tape is cheesy for a track meeting. They better not be doing that cr*p in July!

    ETH is definitely in shape. 10.98 for DAS in 4th. Shacarri Richardson seems to be back in the right frame of mind at last, can she sustain it until the WCs?

    Astonishing from Aregawi, only 21.

    Great run and WL by Dos Santos in Eugene; can he challenge Warholm?

    At the European 10,000m Cup in Pacé, France there were a ton of European Championship qualifying standards and 2 Eugene qualifying marks.

    Jimmy Gressier got one of the latter, winning in 27:24.51 PB. Carlos Mayo was way back in 2nd but he already has the Eugene standard. The first 18 men all ran quicker than the 28:15 European standard - I'm not sure how many of them already had it (not that many I think). 21yo Efrem Gidey (IRL) was 6th in 28:01.50, on his debut at the distance!

    In the Women's 'A' race won by Yasemin Can in 31:20.18 (the other Eugene standard), 8 women ran under the European 32:20 standard (only Reh & Melero already had it) and the athletes in 3rd to 10th places all ran PBs!
    Amongst them, Moira Stewartova (CZE) ran a NR in 6th, 32:08.96, improving her PB by 42s.
    In 7th, Anna Arnaudo (ITA), just 21yo, ran 32:09.54 - a 31s PB. I've championed her on this forum for about 18 months and this was a great step up from her 2nd in the 'B' race last year, running a shade outside 33 minutes then. Italian Women's mid & long distance running is going through a bit of a purple patch at the moment.

    GB's Abbie Donnelly ran a good 7 second negative split and a 26s PB of 32:20.82 in 9th place - the first Brit and easily an England Comm Games standard but just outside the European standard (though the latter might be academic).

    Looking at the Women's startlist I think there was about 10 women who ran in Highgate 2 weeks ago (including 5 of the Brits) and I think Donnelly was the only one who ran faster tonight (certainly amongst the Brits she was).

    So, overall, 2 pretty deep races in European terms. Full results at https://pace22results.european-athle...y-schedule.htm

    I'm so pleased at the revival this event has gone through in the last few years. Taking it to Highgate definitely helped hugely and Pacé did a really good job tonight too. Live streaming it since it went to Highgate has also helped give it new exposure. There was a time 5 or 6 years ago when very few of Europe's bext distance runners were competing in this event. But, that's really turned around now.

    *Psst* This should be in the May UK outdoor thread.

    Sulek with 3 PBs today, continuing her fine indoor form. Vetter 97 points back so between those 2 for the win.

    Yes, still below her best of course but enough to pull her up to 9th, and ahead of domestic rival Holly for the first time this weekend.

    Sulek is having a great competition.

    Sulek with another PB in the 200, a better outing from Kat, pleasing to see her finish it well after the injury in Tokyo

    Very poor shot though, only 10.68. Sulek scored a big pb of 13.79 (previous best 13.21). Holly 13.36, Kat 12.87.

    Holly down to 7th overall, Kat 14th. Poor Lusti slips from 3rd to 17th.

    Sulek developing a clear if not unassailable lead, but Vetter is now in 2nd place around 100 points away, and Kendell Williams not many points behind her in 4th.

    In the 3rd heat, Swiss star Annik Kalin, heptathlon bronze medallist in the Euro U20's 2019, wins in 13.48 (+01.m/s)
    Only 1.68 for Kate in the High Jump.
