    Scenes in the men's long jump pit at Gotzis as Simon Ehammer produces a monster leap of 8.45m! (+0.2m/s) An outright world long jump lead, a NR and a WDB!

    Ahh, that's a shame. Maria is one of the most talented multi eventers to come through in the last decade and to have her missing through injury is unfortunate to say the least.

    She was injured just before the world indoors: https://sportsfinding.com/maria-vice...gallur/137066/

    Damian Warner runs a very impressive 10.14 to take the lead in the decathlon at Gotzis.

    Yeah, but the Men's was a snoozefest for 24 laps. The Women were straight on it from the gun.

    BTW, is there any news about huge multi event talent Maria Vicente? I only ask because she would certainly have been lining up over in Gotzis such is her quality. Is she injured?

    It's a good start for Kate O'Conner over in Gotzis, equalling her 100m hurdles PB of 13.94 (+0.6m/s), in a heat won by Germany's Sophie Weisenberg in a 13.56 PB

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

    Not sure that would help, Jenny is a bit challenged with non English names at the best of times

    Well, that Women's USA 10,000 Championship race was really rather good (and fast, especially the second half - look how fast they covered the last 4km). And the last 200m battle for the 3rd spot on the WCh team was brilliant!

    No spoilers, in case anyone wants to watch it at https://www.usatf.tv/gprofile.php?mg...ideo_id=329829 (no geo-blocking)

    Someone needs to tell her that he's commonly known as Yupun Abeykoon! 'Cause with that 10.06 he'll get plenty of Gold meeting races.

    "And YAM wins the 100 meter race in a time of 10.06."

    What a busy day on the Continental Tour with 4 meetings in Europe! Here's the main results from 3 of the meetings (I haven't watched the jumps meeting in Kallithea yet so don't know the results.)

    Huelva (ESP) - Bronze
    In the W 400 Paulino's compatriot Fiordaliza Cofil ran a 50.38 PB - she won the Ibero-American Championships a few days ago in a 50.64 PB. In 2nd was Lithuania's Modesta Juste Morauskaite in 50.49 - a European lead, NR and a massive outright PB by 1.14s (she ran 51.63 indoors this year).

    There were also big PBs in both the Men's and Women's Steeples with possible relevance to the sharp end at the European Championships ... ...

    Victor Ruiz (ESP) ran 8:16.42 for a Eugene standard and smashing his PB by 9+ seconds. He's no youngster either, at 28yo. Mehdi Belhadj (FRA) won in 8:16.39.

    In the Women's Steeple Alice Finot (FRA) overhauled Aimee Pratt with 100m to go and ran 9:21.41, way inside the 9:30 Eugene standard, a 24s PB (!!) and a new French NR, taking 4s off Sophie Duarte's record from 2009. It's not totally out of the blue though - she ran 8:46 on the flat indoors last year. However, she's 31 and seems to have come to the sport late - WA has her first result in 2016. She ran two 1500s that year and ended the year with a 4:44.9 PB in the 1500!
    Romania's Claudia Prisecaru (24) ran 9:33.41, a 13s PB.

    In the 5000 18yo Levy Kibet (another World XC Tour standout) ran a 13:03.09 PB. In 4th Ouassim Oumaiz (ESP) ran a big 13:06.74 PB and WCh standard.

    A NR for the Spanish women in the 4x100 with 43.30 and that was without their top sprinter, Maria Isabel Perez.

    Dessau (GER) - Bronze
    No fireworks from Mihambo this year - at this meeting last year she jumped 7.05. Just 6.49 this time.

    Vetter was a DNS, leaving the way for Weber to win with 85.02 ahead of Walcott & Vladlejch.

    Ferdinand Omanyala was beaten by Yupun Abeykoon Mudiyanselage who improved his Sri Lankan NR from 10.15 to 10.06 (-0.2).

    In the W 400 Kaczmarek comfortably got the better of Swiety-Ersetic, running 51.23.

    The M 800 was won by Tony van Diepen in 1:45.30 from Michal Rozmys, 1:45.39. Jamie Webb 5th in 1:46.28. Thomas Randolph did "a Dustin", i.e., going backwards at an alarming rate on the back straight, but he dropped out with 200 to go to save himself the ignominy of a 1:51 clocking.

    Lahti (FIN) - Challenger
    My anticipated Korte-Neziri-Hurske battle in the 100H didn't happen, this time Neziri not competing (after she ran in the heats). Hurske won the final in 12.92 from Jamaican youngster Crystal Morrison with a 12.93 PB. Korte 3rd in 13.10.

    High jumper Heta Tuuri improved her 2019 PB by 2cm to 1.90.

    Bianca Williams won in 11.35 (+2.1)

    Topi Raitinen won the 3000 in 7:53.61 from Alex George, 7:54.94.
    Can't help smiling at the problems our Youtube British female announcer would have with Yupun Abeykoon Mudiyanselage!!
