      I quite like the camera angles.

      [p.s. Apologies if it has been mentioned but Nicole Yeargin looked good almost winning the Bydgoszcz 400 yesterday.]

        BTW, it's not all about Emerson of course. Ellen Barber is also competing in Arona, and now that the results page has finally got up and running, I can give her results too. In the 100m hurdles, Barber ran 14.40 (+0.1m/s) for 4th place in the 2nd heat, while currently in the high jump, Barber is on her 3rd and final attempt to clear 1.73m, having gotten over 1.70m on the 3rd attempt.

          And Emerson has now cleared 1.76m on her first attempt... and she looked very smooth while doing so, I might add (in my best Colin Jackson-ese.)

          Meanwhile, Barber failed her last attempt at 1.73m so ends up with a best of 1.70m.

        Emerson is clear over 1.79m first time! It's quite a return to the high jump this is from her.

          Not so silky this time, but she's clear :-)

          But she then sailed over 1.82m with no problem at all! Well clear!

        Finally, a failure for Emerson at 1.85m, but she has two more attempts left.

        BTW, its a great 3 way battle in the high jump between Niamh, Chari Hawkins and Claudia Conte.

        And Emerson clears 1.85m at the second attempt! What a return to full heptathlon action this is from her!

          No dice at 1.88m for Niamh Emerson, and she bows out, but she shots up the table after that fantastic performance.

            So following that excellent high jump, Niamh Emerson rises up to 2nd place in the overall heptathlon standings after two events, with 1987 points, behind Chari Hawkins who bounds into the lead with 2121 points, and just ahead of Claudia Conte who is on 1984.

              Toby Makoyawo won his NAL race, only 10.91 but into a ridiculous -5.1 wind.

                Virtually none of the Brits due to compete today in Oordegem did so and neither did Laviai Nielsen in Regensburg.

                Maybe flight issues or perhaps over-indulgence in the Jubilee festivities??

                  Flight issues & I’m betting Eurostar is either chocka or crazy prices.

                    13.82 for Emerson in SP. Outdoor PB!

                      After 2 rounds in the heptathlon shot put, Niamh Emerson leads all contenders with a 2nd round, 13.82m SB, and with Chari Hawkins ending up with 13.64m as her best throw and Emerson with one effort left, she could further close the gap on the American at the head of the overall standings.

                      And so her great 1st day continues.

                          Silly me. I wonder why it’s taken her so long to get serious?

                          I believe she is being helped (coached?) by her sister Christine. Interestingly her times are very similar to Christine's times in the 2015 season when Christine ended up running 50.16 at the World Championships. Could we see something similar from Victoria?

                          Been following her for some years - seemed a little directionless but who knows the inside story of injuries. Delighted to see her progress. Hope she gets to a Champs or two this year! But there's lots of competition!

                          I know. But her PB before this year was 52.37.

                        With just the 200m left to go for the heptathletes in Arona, the overall points standings look like this after 3 events:

                        1) Chari Hawkins (USA): 2893 points

                        2) Niamh Emerson (GBR): 2769 points

                        3) Marijke Esselink (NED): 2740 points

                        4) Claudia Conte (SPN): 2711 points

                        ---

                        9) Ellen Barber (GBR): 2515 points
