    • Sara Kolak, Olympic Javelin champion, is making her comeback in Ostrava on Thursday after a long-injury lay-off and surgery on her elbow. It's been 22 months since her last competition.

      • Zuzana Hejnova wins the showdown in the 400m hurdles at the Copenhagen Athletics Games, pulling away off the final bend from reigning European champion and home favourite, Sara Slott Petersen, in a solid 55.18 time. Petersen tired down the home straight but was able to hold on for 2nd place with a 56.81 clocking, this her first appearance in the outdoor season. In 3rd was Pole Joanna Linkiewicz with 57.00.

        • Some big international results to report on from various venues in the last couple of days...

          Yesterday in Ostrava, there were world lead performances from Mariya Lasitskene and Magnus Kirt, as the former in the high jump cleared 2.06m on her second attempt, equaling her career best, while the latter launched the javelin beyond 90 meters for the first time in his career, extending his own Estonian national record to 90.34m in the process.

          On the track there were some noteworthy performances too, including a new world record/world best in the women's 300m by Shaunae Miller-Uibo who crushed Ana Guevara's figures set in 2003 ( 35.30, at altitude btw ), with a storming 34.41 run, winning by over a second from her nearest competitor.

          Andre De Grasse stole the limelight from American sprinter Christian Coleman as he continued his return from injury and illness with his first wind legal sub 20 second 200m run since the Rio Olympic 200m semi finals, as he caught up with Coleman in the last 50m to edge past and cross the timeline in 19.91, ahead of Coleman's 19.97 in his season debut at the longer sprint. Clarence Munyai in 3rd improved his season's best to 20.31 as he too continues his recovery from injury in the last season or so.
          De Grasse had earlier come second in a tight finish to the 100m 'A' race, beaten by 1/100th of a second by veteran Mike Rodgers, 10.04 to 10.05 (SB), with the top four finishing bunched within 0.04 seconds. (Xie Xhenye 3rd - 10.06, Akane Simbine 4th - 10.08)

          Another athlete getting back up to speed after a long injury lay-off was Bahamian Steven Gardiner, who pulled a hamstring at the Zurich Weltklasse meeting last year. In his first 400m outdoors this year, Gardiner came up with an assured 44.95 run, winning by nearly a full second from Bahrain's former world junior bronze medalist. Abbas Abubakar (45.85).

          Amel Tuka ran his fastest 800m in two years as he won ahead of reigning European 800m champion Adam Kszczot, 1:44.95 to 1:45.63 with Alfred Kipketer 3rd in 1:45.90.

          Meanwhile in Huelva, Spain, reigning triple jump world champion Yulimar Rojas who won't turn 24 until October, opened her outdoor season with a new national record and meeting record 15.06m leap in the second round, adding 4cm to the previous record figures she herself had set almost exactly 3 years ago, also in Spain.

          In the women's discus it was a Cuban 1-2 as Denia Caballero launched the discus out to a 69.20m SB in the second round to win the contest, with teammate Yaime Perez recording a best of 67.27m to grab second place.

          • A question ...

            In the 1500 in Kuortane the pacemaker, Volha Nemahai, went on to complete the race and finish 2nd. Is she then eligible for prize money? Is there an IAAF rule on this or is it down to the discretion of the meeting organisers?

              I am pretty sure it would be down to the organisers. I am pretty sure there is no rule that prevents a pacemaker being classified in the final result. Actually I think designating someone as a pacemaker on a startlist has no official basis and is just done to inform the media and spectators. Back in the day, there used to be quite strict rules against pacemakers which meant, for example, when Roger Bannister broke the 4 minute mile, his pacemakers made sure that they finished the race.

          • Ge Manqi ran a legal 11.17 to beat Jodie Williams & Lisa Marie Kwayie today. After Liang Xiaojing's 11.22 last month and Wei Yongli's sub 11 last year we may be seeing the start of the Chinese women following the progress of their male sprinters.

            • The Tuebingen meeting has been cancelled due to heavy rainfall, thunderstorms & flooding. They did start the meeting and got through some of the pre-program before cancelling so it will have been a wasted trip and a missed opportunity for fast times for many athletes.

              • Magnus Kirt extended his 90.34 PB/WL from Ostrava to 90.61 in Kuortane today. However, the Germans really continue to struggle this season - Rohler just over 80m today and Hofmann 82m. Finland's Oliver Hellander was 2nd with 86.93, approaching his PB.

                  Left handed world record.

                      Vetter and Rohler aren’t yet tearing up any trees, but Hofmann and Seifert are both over 89 and in 2nd and 3rd place in the rankings. They’ll be fine.

                        • Now for some international results from the La-Chaux-de-Fonds meeting, just now in the men's 400m stocky Colombian powerhouse Antony Jose Zambrano, just 21 years old, absolutely smashed his PB, which had stood at 45.19, with a splendid run of 44.68 which breaks the Colombian national record of 44.86 set last year!
                          He finished just ahead of Davide Re, who had recently set a new Italian national record at the Geneva meeting two weeks ago, and has lowered those figures again to 44.77, becoming the first Italian man to run sub 45 seconds.

                            It has taken rather a long time for Italy to get someone under 45. I suspect the late Pietro Menneas might have done it about 40 years ago if he had decided to focus on the event. He won a Euro indoor title at 400m and ran some excellent anchor legs in 4x400s.

                          OK Davide, you've had your fun. Now it's time to get out of Switzerland and get back down to sea level!

                          In the 100H heats his compatriot Luminosa Bogliolo was very close to breaking Veronica Borsi's 12.76 NR. She ran 12.78. In the final she matched the NR but it was a +3.1 wind. Bogliolo ran a wind-legal 12.89 at sea level in Nancy last weekend.
