    Although he's a European champion, I'm not sure if he's ever beaten a stronger field.

    I think he’s had a few false dawns in the past - he has the talent to be dropping good times/performances, but has failed to deliver for so long. His post-race interview was good, so hopefully this is his year to fulfil promise and step up

    Yes, better than he”s looked for a few years.

    If the weather holds, someone is going to have a big breakthrough.

    (In my dream world, it goes something like this: Boffey wins narrowly from Baker, quick; and in the posr-race interview she grabs the mic and roars "I'm coming for you next Hodgkinson!" :-) )
    Roughly right. Except that Ives was the one with the breakthrough. (And Boffey's roar only happened in her mind.) The conditions were not quite ideal for Boffey to go sub-2, but it is definitely coming.

    Does anyone know where there is video of this race?

    Superb throwing from Ceh, he’s not far off Stahl’s PB and Birmingham isn’t particularly known for being a good place to throw. He’s 13-2 down to Stahl in head to heads but those 2 victories have come this year.

    I was impressed by Parchments time and race, that was only slightly slower than the time he ran in Tokyo

    In general it’s good to see Dina back in shape after last year’s injury

    Just got back from shopping and saw Hodgkinson's race now.

    The only person who has anything on Keely right now is Mu, she is that dominant over all the other 800m runners she faces at the moment. It was such a shame that she picked up that niggle just before the WIC heats, because she was the gold medal winner right there with Mu not in attendance.

    A 1:58.63 while casually strolling away from classy sub 1:58 and 1:57 athletes like Lamote and Goule? That's the mark of a scarily good middle distancer.

    Keely Hodgkinson looked supreme.

    DAS, MHS and Laura Muir did enough to win. Great scalp forAzu in the B race getting the scalp of the winner of the A race. Good performance from Lorraine Ugen too.

    Prescod was dire.

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