  • In the same 100m race at Padova that saw Adam Gemili return to action, Italian Lamont Jacobs won it in a new meeting record and PB of 10.03 (+1.7m), taking him to 3rd on the Italian all time lists, behind Filippo Tortu (9.99 NR) and sprint legend Pietro Mennea (10.01A).

    • Over at the Joesnuu Games in Finland, there was excitement in the stadium as Annimari Korte 31, smashed the national record for the 100m hurdles, clocking 12.72 (+1.3 m/s) in finishing narrowly behind Jamaican Britany Anderson, who herself ran a new PB of 12.71. Fellow Finn Reetta Hurske also went under the old figures of 12.81, coming third in a 12.78 PB.

      In fact, in the heats earlier in the meeting, Anderson and Hurske had set PBs too (12.79 and 12.96 respectively), while Korte was just 0.01 down on her own prior PB with 12.87.

        Just to add that subject to ratification, Anderson also set a new world U-20 record with that 12.71 time!

        • Blake Leeper, paralympic 400m runner, has just smashed the paralympic 400m record, running 44.38 to win his semi final in the US trials!

          I repeat, Leeper ran 44.38!

          • Who called it about Sha'carri Richardson, the NCAA Champion over 100m with that WJR 10.75 in June, not being able to do it during the US Trials? She came 8th and last just now in the 100m final, and she was never in it throughout.

              those american 100s have thrown up some interesting results, 2 and 3rd on the womans side have not broken 10.20 this season, nothing to fear for dina there, bowie has yeat to break 11.30 this season too

              • Dina and John have a very good track record of peaking at a champs. She said in a London interview this year was targeting one peak, not a double one, so she should get a few tenths off in both events. Her best chance for gold would be the 200m, but depends on what Thompson does, as SAFP has said she is doubling but she isn’t as big a threat to Dina in that event

                  It has to be noted that the finalists in that 100m race had to contend with a fearsome -3.0 m/s headwind, so the times would have been definitely affected by that last night. However, I do agree that out of the top 3 that qualified for the World Champs in that final, none of them looked like that were in the type of form to seriously threaten the current top 3 in the world over 100m - Thompson, SAFP and DAS - come Doha.

                  • I can understand Richardson having a poor run after her long season but Hobbs hasn’t raced much this season. Daniels was 4th at NCAAs and wins at US trials, Richardson dominant a month ago but 8th today, NCAAs does produce some strange results.

                    Benjamin, Norman and Kerley did well in their semis, they could have an excellent relay team in Doha. I’ve got to say that Ronnie Baker not making the team improves the brits chances in the 100

                      I think we all know the answer to that. Had to laugh when FloTrack were saying she was the favourite for gold in Doha (before Thompson & SAFP ran 10.73 in the Jamaican Champs).

                      I'll say she doesn't break 11.00 again this year (we see it time and time again with the NCAA sprinters, especially the women.)
                      To add to this prediction, watching Richardson on the line before this final, it *almost* looked like she didn't want to be there at all, in contrast to how she looked and behaved on the start line before the NCAA 100m final.
                      It was also funny hearing the disbelief in the commentators voice when they said "And what happened to Richardson?!", like this result was a surprise at all! The NCAA championships WAS Richardson's major championships of the year, especially after the intense indoor and outdoor collegiate racing she's done during the winter and spring. Personally if I was her, once she'd run that 10.75, I would have called off the rest of the season and focused on recovery and sorting out kit/shoe sponsorships as a now-pro athlete. Then get ready for Tokyo 2020.

                        no poster on this site would have failed to observe that Richardsons freaky stuff in the NCAAs( from 11.35 last year to 10.75 this year) was likely to go nowhere; the main reason we all know is that the NCAA top dogs suffer in nearly all cases a severe downturn in form right after their star turnsin June .

                          After a string of 4th places, Andy Bayer needed Evan Jager's absence to make the team for the first time. But, hey, I'm sure he doesn't care about that!

                          Dreadful commentary in the women's 1500 - I know who Nikki Hiltz is but I'm sure there were some watching who were wondering, "who's that woman running into 3rd place (and on to "the team")?" But, they had to wait at least 20 seconds after the race to find out. Heaven forbid that the commentators deviate from their script for just a moment!
                          Great run by 2019 NCAA Champ Sinclaire Johnson in 4th, just 0.18s away from making the team. She has deceptive speed because her form is so smooth. This girl is going to be very, very good. Nice article on her at https://www.dyestat.com/gprofile.php...news_id=581430

                          Similarly in the 400 - no mention of 3rd placer, Wadeline Jonathus! At all! Until the last 100, it was all Allyson Felix, blah, blah, Allyson Felix, blah, blah, Allyson Felix, blah, blah ...
                          well at least the Americans know what its like for a change to compete in very unpleasant headwinds.. makes up for the countless windy stuff across the pond. When these champs are over we will see nevertheless a quality team, and in the event of them not finding 1st week in october adversely affecting performances the USA will once again dominating the medal table. Did not expect the USA dominating top lists in the womens Hammer by now.
                          Just been looking at the results of various National Champs in Europe... not very impressive, particularly the second rate French athletes.

                          • Everybody thought it was Sydney McLaughlin who was going to be the one to break Yulia Pechonkina's 16 year old world record over 400m hurdles...

                            WRONG! It was Delilah Muhammad, the reigning Olympic champion who did! She has just smashed the record, running an incredible 52.20 at a wet Des Moines track, finishing 2-3 meters ahead of McLaughlin who ran a season's best 52.88 (one of the fastest times ever ran still!) and Ashley Spencer outran Shamier Little to the 3rd automatic qualifying spot, equaling here PB with 53.13.

                            • Superb run by Muhammad on a dripping wet track, it wasn’t raining during the race which makes me question what she could run on a dry track. It’s starting to look like the US will have a lot of favourites over the hurdles and in the sprints at the world championships, the Jamaican era has come to an end abruptly.

                              • Muhammad has taken her 400 flat time from 52.64 to 52.63 to 51.62 to 50.60 this year
