    Looking at the Eugene startlists, it seems that Nicola McDermott has married. She now has the unusual surname, Olyslagers !

    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.

    Only three days until WR attempts for women over two miles and 5000 in Eugene. Niyonsaba is supposedly the one trying for the 2 miles mark and she may get Defar’s time, but no WR if second behind Hassan.
