    Loads of people seem to be attempting near impossible doubles over the three days if you believe the entry lists.

    No Charles Hicks in the 5000M which I would have liked to see and similarly no Katy-Ann Mcdonald in either the 800 or 1500

    Looks to me like an entry messup.

    As I said in my earlier post I suspect a lot of these entries will change over the next week or so, they always do - lots of people holding their cards close to their chest. I will be amazed if KJT runs an 800m outside a Heptathlon!!!

    KJT not in the official heptathlon but going in every single one of the heptathlon events: HJ, LJ, 200, 800, 100h, shot and javelin. Not sure if she will be trying to emulate an actual hep by only doing heats and three attempts?

    Tim Duckworth reappearing for the LJ

    Jodie Williams 200 as well as 400

    Laura Muir 800 and 1500

    Long range forecast may change of course but currently weather is predicted to be highs of 17 and cloudy/sunny intervals. Not overly conducive to quick times.

    Looking at the entries quite a few people entered in more than 1 event, I suspect as we get nearer the time that will change. Keely has only entered the 400 and Dina the 100.

    Worth noting that this is the trials for World Champs only. (usual top 2 guaranteed selection if they have the Qualifying standard) The European team isn't being selected until end of July. The Welsh team has been announced for Commonwealths; the English Team selection was yesterday with an announcement due next week. Am not sure when the final Scotland selection is but I'm sure that will be soon.
    DAS has qualified for 200m at WCs as defending champion and KH for 800 as Diamond League champion so entries for these two make sense.

    It does rather surprise me they couldn't wait an extra week for results from the 'trials' [Yes I know its WC trials] are they working to a CG deadline [commencing 28th July] It's not as if the team needs time to organise a visa for Birmingham [though given the imminent break-up of the UK, maybe so...kindly note last comment is political tongue-in-cheek]

    Not sure why it's this 'early' but I seem to recall this was also the case with Glasgow 2014.
