    Yes, it does. Dare I say it, much more impressive than this year's World Champs stadium!

      So not even the commentators have bothered to understand the rules of the final 3 format for the diamond league. Allman didn’t lose her first position as the final round isn’t the only throw that counts unlike last year. Very lazy of Steve Backley to not follow updates to the comp format (even if it is rubbish)

        Laura Muir making 4:02.81 look like hard work in the DL 1500m race, though it was enough to beat Jessica Hull and for her first race of the year following an injury in the winter, a WC, EC and CWG qualifier in your first performance outdoors is pretty good going I'd say.

          It can take a long time to recover properly from glandular fever

          I knew one or two useful teenagers who had whole seasons wiped out by it back in the '80s.

        The wind is going to bring marks down across a lot of events. I’ll be looking at how competitive people are against others rather than the times or distances today

                  Reece Prescod did not look good at all - something is very off with his biomechanics, he looks like he's stomping every step. Totally flat, no explosiveness. Very disappointing times generally too.

                    Prescod is not fit.

                      Ha, Zharnel is the Master and proving it today! 2 consecutive DQ's for him after Puerto Rico?

                            Apart from Azu and Muir (and Pattison), the British performances so far here have been at best average to very poor.

                              I know it's May, but this is extremely poor for a DL event, and despite that the vast majority of British athletes have still been humbled and way off the pace.
