    NMB is UK-based now, coached by Ryan Freckleton. And Dobson is an undergraduate at Loughborough, and indeed ran in the BUCS 4x400m this year.

    Ferguson registers ok. He is number 5 in p of 10 this year ,so far. A Brit who lives in GB, trained by Brits , i think, trains and competes here during the year.
    More than you can say about Hughes, NMB, Gemili, and Dobson who currently trains and competes in the USA.

    One other point on Ferguson - 20.38 would have been a UK lead in 2012, 10 years later it barely even registers, such has been the improvement in British sprinting.

    Excellent win for Snowden, and very solid runs from Joe Ferguson. Kristal Awuah has completely lost her way and needs to change her coaching setup.

    On the subject of Kovacs I’ll bet there aren’t many elite male throwers that are coached by their wives. Ashley Kovacs nee Muffet also coaches Divine Oladipo.

    Hellen Obiri is making her marathon debut in New York, up against Peres Jepchirchir and world champ Gotytom Gebreslase - https://www.worldathletics.org/compe...22-elite-field

    Jess Piasecki is also entered.

    Remember, there's another high-profile marathon debut to come by Gidey in Valencia in December.

    Camacho-Quinn 12.27
    Joe Kovacs 22.89 (backed up by a 22.87)
    Ceh 71.23

    2017 European U20 champion Milica Gardasevic (SRB) set a PB in winning the LJ. She's improved from 6.64 to 6.83 this year. Good consistency too - 6 of her 7 outdoor competitions this year have been at 6.67 or better. The only one not ... unfortunately the WCh, no marking in qualifying.
    Ceh is entering the discus stratosphere - at 23 that’s already his 3rd 71m+ effort. As far as I can see Stahl has managed 5, the same number that both Kanter and V Alekna achieved in their entire careers. WR holder Schult only had one. 72m has only been exceeded 4 times - Schult, Alekna and Kanter twice.

    It's easy to overlook just how historically good Kovacs is, dur to him competing against Crouser. Already has one of the best 5 resumes in history, in terms of marks.

    McLaughlin 51.68. I think I saw a sort of smile for 1 second. Miserable c..

    Not sure this was your most edifying comment to be fair, Marilyn.

    Tamari Davis finished second in 10.92 in Hungary today... she has the 5 fastest under-20 times in the world this year (all between 10.83 and 10.92) and 5 of the 8 fastest under-20 times ever. She also ran 22.48/200 when she had just turned 15, so she's not a one-trick pony. She should be a solid contender for the 4th-5th-6th places in future World Champs and Olympic Games behind Stephen Francis.

    Sydney McLaughlin has been battling some serious depression and anxiety, which may be the reason she's not grinning from ear to ear every time you see her. But, by all means, be a smug imbecile, "philipo".
