    Sawyers out is sad, not least because she has a history of peaking well when the chips are down.
    But it is not all LJ doom and gloom on twitter. There is also a vid of Irozuru casually juggling traction-engine-sized weights like they are nothing - which for some reason cheers me up.

        Yes! Gaylord Silly is in the 1500. Still going at the age of 36.

          I' d forgotten about the Cuban triple jumper Martinez. He's still only 24, but in 2014 jumped over 17 metres at the age of 16. Look out for lots of pictures of Coe on the phone this weekend, trying to use his influence with the Chelsea bid. He'll probably have Duplantis pole vaulting on match day next season.

              Hope we see a male in the studio eventually.
              Impeccably Beeb so far
              glad to see Jeanette up front though,; she has shown good skills necessary for her job in the last few years.

                Do you feel threatened, Philipo?

                No shortage of blokes in the commentary box.

              Opening heat in the pentathlon 60m hurdles is won by Gerevini (ITALY) in a PB of 8.35, with current world leader Adrianna Sulek in 2nd with 8.36. KJT and Holly Mills will be in the following heat.

                  As Denise was saying, it's not brilliant but not well down. She won the 2018 World Indoors with an 8.36.

                  That said, it would have been much more preferable if this 8.45 was in a random low-key meet in France a month ago...

                KJT not looking amazing, but 8.45 is actually not a million miles off a par performance for her. Keys will (as always) be the jumps, which training can prep you more for.

                  A great start from Holly Mills, with 8.15 PB, with the same time as Noor Vidts. KJT was in last place with 8.45, looking a tad tentative and rusty over the hurdles, her first race in the season after all.

                    Now for the men's heptathlon. The first heat is won by Ashley Moloney in sensational fashion, steaming out of the blocks and winning by a big distance, 6.70 PB (this was his first ever official indoor 60m btw!) This Aussie is the real deal, and the former world junior champion and Tokyo 2020 bronze medallist gets off to a fabulous start.
                    Lindon Victor also set a 60m PB, but was a full two tenths behind Moloney, with 6.91

                      In the 2nd heat, Olympic champion Damien Warner accepted the challenge presented by the 22 year old pretender Moloney and responds with an indoor PB of 6.68. Another of the youngsters, former European U20 champion Simon Ehammer, also set a PB of 6.72.

                        NR for Zaynab Dosso (ITA), 7.14, improving her own recent 7.16 mark.

                        Some big discrepancies in the flash times and the official times! E.g., Dosso initially given 7.10.

                          NR for Bassant Hemida too, 7.31, 5th in her heat - a rare example of an international class Egyptian.

                          Kambundji not getting out of the blocks great but did enough to win in 7.17.

                            Brazil to Belgrade - a long way to go for Santos just to get DQ'd!

                            Heat 3 was a fast one:
                            1 Brisco 7.03 PB
                            2 Frey (SUI) 7.11 PB - didn't she use to be a hepathlete?
                            3 Hobbs (NZL) 7.13 AR
                            4 Van der Weken (LUX) 7.21 - her 5th NR of the year!
