    Fairly comprehensive coverage. Although I note on Friday & Saturday they are starting just before the first track action of the day; therefore missing some of the Multi Events and Field Event action.

    This is truly the worst weather for DLs I can remember. Tomorrow in Paris the first good conditions, ruddy hot, but the fieldsxare affected by the proximity to National Champs and the Americans have their Trials midweek.

    Is Adelle Tracey injured?
    I don't see her name on the entry list for the 800m or 1500m.

    Women's flat 400 also very competitive..... and let's hope the sun shines but the wind is still. Looking at the Sprints in 2019, the ladies Sprints had strong headwinds. Give them all a break Mr Wind!!

    Mens discus should be good, Okoye is slightly ahead on SB and will go in as clear favourite, Percy is one of our most improved athletes this year and has started to throw distances that can sneak into global finals. He may not do it this year but there’s enough potential there for it to be a possibility at some stage in the next few years

    I was thinking about what am I looking forward to most at these champs and for what's it worth, to prompt some build-up discussion [one each from Mens/Womens, Track/Field]...

    Of the Women's Field events, in the recent past its been Long Jump, but I am looking forward to the hammer this year, it might not be world class standard, but its going to be very competitive, hopefully a few PBs. Women's track, I have to say 400 hurdles, again it might not produce world class times, but hoping for a strong showing from 3/4 ladies.

    Men's track, the depth of the 800 is outstanding [see chat on 'state of play' thread] but, honestly, and a sad indictment, I can't think of one men's field event, where there's more than a single person who might make world class marks, at a push hammer might provide good competition... I hope I 'm proved wrong.

    Take the entry lists with a pinch of salt. On the old website they used to list everyone who had qualified for the event, whether they were planning to turn up or not. Then a few days before the champs they would revise the entry lists for whoever is actually going.

    Quick times.? very surprised if we see any. Usual nervous cagey and negative stuff we get at the trials.This is after all the year with a home CG and Europeansin in later August.

    Maybe Katy Ann has run out of steam, she was disappointing in the NCAA final.

    What on earth would KJT be doing in a likely sub-2:00 800m, really?
Working...
