    He started a 200 in Trieste at the end of May but pulled up after about 50m.

    Some poster elsewhere states he ran sub 45 last year and did nothing at Tokyo. His glory days were 6 years ago, dont see them returning.

    Certainly looks like his first race in 2022

    Am I right in saying that's Wayde's first full and completed 400m race in almost a year or something like that?

    44.58 for Wayde Van Niekerk in US last night. Not near his best but some signs he could at least get to the final at Worlds.

    Which is worth a bonus point on its own!

    Just watching the Morton Games - sadly the Irish Universities 4x400m did not live up to previous versions of the event. 😀

    However the 16x100m Schools Mile Relay is always worth watching

    I find it a little surprising that World Athletics doesn't separate them just for the fact that I would have thought they would like the sport to have the publicity of more world records. It also leads to a bit of a mess because some countries follow WA's lead on this and others don't. For what it's worth, it may be the case that the perfect conditions for PV are warm and sunny with a steady breeze on the vaulter's back but getting this combination is vanishingly rare. I would say it is much easier to churn out competition after competition at a decent height indoors. Also on HJ it's sometimes possible to start your run-up with a couple of steps down a banked track.

    Saying that if someone jumped further in the LJ or TJ indoors that for me would be the absolute world record but it's rather unlikely.

    Japan chooses their athletes for Worlds. Interest, i guess, mostly in distance events.
    Update: On July 7 the JAAF added team members in five events after receiving notification from World Athletics that they had moved up from b...

    Yeah, indoors there is nothing to stop him trying for it twice a week. Outdoors, that was his only real chance in two months.

    I'm not a massive Tim Hutchings fan and his research doesn't seem to extend beyond brief chats with whoever he bumps into at the breakfast buffet.

    He's not as bad as Chris Dennis though, who would be top of my list to bin off from the Diamond League commentaries, he was also dire on Eurosport commentary at the Olympics along with Martin Gillingham. I hope Eurosport don't ever use them again.

    Definitely time to start trying more commentators out - this has been a good thing about the Continental tour. Hannah England isn't the finished article by any means but she has been good by and large. And hopefully gets more gigs in the future as she gets more experience under her belt. I quite like Kris Temple as well. He really seems to know his stuff too. Jenny Meadows, lovely person but really not suited to commentary at all for various reasons. That's the thing try new people out at a lower level, give them experience, let them make mistakes and learn. Until you give people a chance you never know whether they will be suited or not.

    (In my eyes 6.20 is the indoor world record not THE world record. Indoors and out are 2 very different disciplines in my book and we see how outdoor wind can really impact performances. I say this regularly but if a point’s worth making it’s worth making with a sledgehammer. And I really couldn’t care less if the rest of the world disagrees with me).

    Mondo is as close as any athlete can be to being invincible.

    Completely agree. I was trying to work out why it wasn't a WR and then remembered the indoor marks. And then got annoyed. It's absurd.
