    Further to the above at Papaflessia, Tentoglou pulled out an 8.22 in the last round to overhaul Montler, 8.10.

    Marija Vukovic won the HJ with a 1.95 SB and had 3 not-close attempts at 2.00 (her NR is 1.97) - she said afterwards it's the first time she's ever tried 2.00m.

    The W Javelin was won by Yulenmis Aguilar (CUB), 62.52, from Elina Tzengo, 60.43.

    Milica Gardasevic won the W LJ with a very consistent series including 6.69 PB (last round), 6.67, 6.65 & 6.65 (all +1.x wind). Spiridoula Karydi, better known for the TJ, was 2nd with 6.51.

    No blazing fast times at last night's USATF Distance Classic at Mt SAC and in fact there was only 1 Worlds standard achieved ... by 20yo Aussie Abbey Caldwell in winning the 1500 in 4:04.18 (0.02s inside the standard!) It was a 0.6s PB and she books her plane ride to Eugene because she won the Aussie Champs a couple of months ago.

    Ecuador have much better race walkers than Britain and they also have a female Javelin thrower better than any of ours at the moment. ... Juleysi Angulo throwing a 60.91 NR (improving her own mark by 69cm) in Round 1 at the Ibero-American Championships in Alicante.

    17yo Manuela Rotundo (URU) also threw a NR, 55.81 in Round 1, improving her own senior NR by 2.40m.

    Well, she ran a respectable 54.76 in April, so maybe somewhere between 53.00 and 53.50? If she focused on it, she'd probably be much faster, obviously, but these 400 relay splits by Wilson and Steiner hold up really well against the best splits ever. No woman has ever run under Marita Koch's 400 meter world record in a 4x400 relay split. Kratochvílová may have had a hand-timed 47.6 in 1982 and Marita Koch ran a split in 47.70 in 1984, but that's the closest.

    I have no idea what Abby Steiner will focus on, but IF she chooses to focus on the 400, I believe she'll be crazy fast. She ran 300 meters (indoor) in 35.80 in December and the indoor one lap in 22.09 a couple of months ago, so she has the speed, strength and stamina and knows how to run the curve.

    Enjoyed watching Sunday's international meeting in Montgeron (a WACT Challenger meeting).

    Algeria have a good men's high hurdler! Amine Bouanani ran 13.50 (-2.5) in the heats, improving his 2019 PB by 0.10s and then he won the final in 13.48 (again -2.5!) PB, beating Kwaou-Mathey & Manga.

    Already mentioned by philipo/marilyn1 but there was more success for Algeria in a good 800 (four men ran under 1:45.6). 23yo Slimane Moula smashed his PB by over a second with a huge finishing burst, winning in 1:44.72 from Benjamin Robert, 1:45.19.

    Nicole Yeargin won the 400 comfortably in 51.79.

    Benjamin Compaore TJ'd 17.06.

    In the Men's 5000 Romain Mainguy couldn't live up to his name, that honour going instead to Jimmy Gressier, 13:26 and change.

    Also holds the 300m Irish record. She is a fabulous young athlete and effortless to watch.

    Quite a good athlete emerging from Barbados, Johnathan Jones has set national records in the 400 and 800 in the last few weeks, 44.43 and 1:45.83

    Some impressive sprinting overnight from the NCAA conference champs.

    At the SEC champs, Favour Ofili won the head to head in both sprints against Abby Steiner, winning the 100m in 10.93 to 11.02 and the 200m in 22.04 to 22.07. At the Big 12 Champs Julien Alfred clocked 10.81. The women's sprints should be a highlight of next month's NCAA are and 60m champ Melissa Jefferson ran 10.88 to win the Sunbelt Champs.

    Also at the SEC champs, Britton Wilson clocked up an impressive 400/400H double in 50.05 & 53.75. And Matthew Boling beat Joseph Fanbulleh in the Men's 200m 20.01 to 20.13.
    In the same Big-12 Championships where Julien Alfred ran that 10.81, Rhasidat Adeleke, reigning European U20 champ over 100 and 200m, broke Joanne Cuddihy's 15 year old Irish 400m record, by running 50.70 as she came in 3rd place in the 400m final behind Texas University teammates, Stacy Ann Williams (50.21), and Kennedy Simon (50.68).

    That means that at the age of 19, Adeleke now holds the national records over 60m, 200m, and 400m!

    She goes straight to the top of the 2022 European rankings, as well as also easily achieving the WC and EC qualifying standards.

    The significant difference between Nesterenko and Alekna Jnr is that the latter is producing with the senior weight discus. When Nesterenko went into the seniors, his distances tumbled off a cliff and he never came close to replicating what he did previously. And, if we're being honest, Nesterenko threw the discus beyond 70m in the youth ranks, even by the time he went into the U20 grade discus, his distances started to suffer, and by the time he became a senior, he just wasn't able to adjust.
    He's still competing, and has at least made it to major championships, but he's never going to win a global, or even a continental medal now.

    Alekna Jnr on the other, looks like he's ready to medal in Eugene, right now.

    Another improvement for Alekna Jnr to 68.73 in the disc. Not a freak throw as it’s backed up by a 67 and a couple of 66s.

    He’s 19, not turning 20 until the end of September.

    Obviously it’s unfair to compare him to his Dad but to hell with it.

    As a 19 year old, Snr’s best was 57.16.

    Snr was 26 before he threw further than Jnr now has with 69.66 in 1998. His 73.88 came a couple of years later.

    At one point I thought Nesterenko was going to rewrite the record books but he did nothing as a senior. But I’m going to call it early. Alekna Jnr will consign Schult to history.
