    We knew Toby Makoyawo had been injured before his disappointing performance in the NCAA regionals last week, and according to his twitter it was a grade 2 tear in his quad. He's in action over here in the National Athletics League this weekend.

    We knew that something didn’t look right with Prescod in Brum and now we know why. Hope he gets into a good 200m race soon

    suddenly mens sprinting looks back in a good place. Looking forward to Edoburan running back in Europe

    Fantastic from Prescod. Full credit where due.

    He’s shown he can do it. Now to repeat. And when it counts.

    Obviously, and I'm pretty sure they will be a lot quicker in 6 weeks time too.

    Just noticed in the results section there was a 4x100 for the men won by GB&NI in 38.43. The team in leg order was Jeremiah Azu, Zharnel Hughes, Richard Kilty & Nethaneel Mitchel-Blake. A seasons best but would need to be much quicker come the worlds.

    A point that was emphasised when he reciprocated the shoulder barge he got at at the start of the race. Turn the clock back 3 years, and bean-pole version Burgin would have been knocked off his stride for sure. Not here though.

    On Adelle Tracey, I have to commend her on making the decision to move up to the 1500m, and to how well she is taking to it currently. Before 2019, her 1500m PB was outside 4:10. Since then, she's taken 9 seconds out of it in the last 3 years and has been taking huge chunks of time off her PB this year, seemingly with every race.

    Could she go sub 4 minutes this year at this rate?

    It was just a day or two ago I was saying I had no faith in Reece and no expectations for Max Burgin. Those comments aged well

    Although I did LOL when Reece said in hi s interview how hard he's been working for the past two years. Maybe more recently, but we all know the Cakegate saga...

    Adelle Tracey got the WCs standard with her 4.02.55, and it's also a UK lead ahead of Muir.

    BTW, that 9.93 from Reece Prescod is one of the fastest times ever run into a headwind that is -1.0 or stronger. The others who went faster on that list are Usain Bolt (surprising nobody and is the only one to do so multiple times, with 3 sub 10 second runs into -1.0 and stronger winds) Asafa Powell, Yohan Blake and Michael Rodgers (who all did it once).

    Following his 10.05 (-1.2m/s) SB and World Champ qualifier in the 100m, Zharnel Hughes runs 20.29 (-0.2m/s) for 3rd place behind Jerome Blake (CAN, 20.14) and Elijah Hall (USA, 20.14) for another season's best and a European Champs qualifying effort. A not too shabby day's work for Hughes methinks.
