    the mens B race is gonna be a good watch, as they may decide the relay squads!

    On that note, however, the mens 4x400m still hasn't qualified right? so strange to see a 4x100 on the agenda but not a long relay... cutting things fine!!


    Very interesting to see Gabby Thomas down for the B and A 100m

      Noticed that as well. In a similar vein, Aaron Brown is down for both the men's 100m A and B.

    No sign of Charlie Dobson. Is he injured or otherwise engaged?

      I’m guessing he’s the person Stew referred to, as both MHS and AHW are down to race

    No the Men's 4x400 haven't qualified for Worlds yet. Nor technically have either of the the 4x100s, although the women are in an excellent position so no worries there. The men's 4x100 is also currently in a qualified position but as their sub 38 clocking from Tokyo is now null & void they may want to try and run a quicker time just to be certain.

    I wonder if there are any plans to try and run a QT over the next few weeks? There is usually a 4x4 at the Loughborough International on Sunday but otherwise they'll need to go abroad somewhere I guess - no World Relays or Euro Team Champs this year so not sure what the options are. Of course with the men's squad not funded now there isn't really anything to be done to compel anyone to participate in a relay and as you get nearer trials people will want to focus on their individual plans.

      I’d say the WIC should make UKA keen to find opportunities for them - they did a sterling job!

    I wonder if we're going to see Max Burgin this year.
    Well, we're going to get an answer to that question because Burgin is set to line up in the men's 800m "B" race at the Birmingham Diamond League meeting on Saturday.

      Burgin has a new coach. Is he going to front run a 1.43, dragging Pattison to a big on.

      Who is the new coach? Is it Trevor Painter?

      Wasn't he supposed to be working with Trevor last year? Anyway, he doesn't seem to be on the start list for Birmingham after all, so I hope not yet another injury.

      Just flicking through the start lists….

      Looking forward to seeing Allman in the disc.

      Can’t be too often that 4 Brits with sub 10 PBs have lined up in the same 100m race. Not that I’m particularly expecting fireworks from any of them.

      Good to see Hodgkinson on the start line. Genuinely exciting talent.

      And as for the relay knotweed, whoever put the Union Flag alongside Scotland and Wales is playing with fire!

        Just hope the right flags are flown at the Commonwealth Games in a few weeks!

      Can’t wait for the w5000. I am predicting 7 or 8 women under 14.43

        Is it possible to watch on YouTube with a VPN rather than the BBC? I see Ireland has a YouTube feed.

          Yes, it will be. Good option. I'd forgotten we'll have a Gabfest today!

          I can't see any preview/details on YouTube using VPN as yet. The Ireland YT is showing as exactly the same as UK atm. I have an alert, however, so I hope I get pinged in a while :-)

              Success! Followed your lucky link (!) and it's not geo blocked. Live in 4 hours, Gabless. Woo hoo.

            Further to your comment on the quoted post, I think it will be geo-blocked in the UK.

            And when a video is geo-blocked it won't show in a YouTube search.
