    Later on, I'll do another unscientific "analysis" and see how many decent or better medal chances they have. I suspect it's not going to be a huge amount, especially given that Vetter & Hussong are both injured and out of the Javelin.
    OK, so I make it that Germany have 14 or 15 decent or better medal chances (8 of them women).

    In 2018 in Berlin they won 20 medals in total with 6 of them Gold. They'll have nothing like either of those two numbers this time. Of course, they're not helped by the Javelin injuries and Gesa-F Krause being absent too.

      It has been said that if you half the number of genuine medal chances you get a reasonable estimate of how many medals you will get.

                With 3 throwers they are trying to compensate with size for a shortage of numbers.

              They're claiming it's 101 athletes but I only counted 97 (before I saw the 101 claim). 97 would still equal their biggest team from Budapest 1998.
              France and Germany are hardly setting athletics alight these days but the very large teams they are sending to Munich is a political statement from the EU.

                They may not be setting record medal hauls but they - like GBR - have a lot of people ranked inside the top 8 and even more that will be ranked in the top 12-15 (ie potential finalists).

                It's nothing to do with the EU. Countries with good funding and larger populations tend to send larger teams. It's that simple.

                With the euros to come and several other sports in Germany to accompany the track and field, I feel rather like a person who had rather too large a meal.!!!

                  Yes, it's been a feast but also quite exhausting! After 16 days of athletics in Eugene and Birmingham there'll be a few days rest before the last 7 days stretch in Munich.

                    Yep. I've been proper binging on athletics pretty much for the past 2 months... European U18s in July, then the World Championships, now the Commonwealth Games and World U20 combo, and in just 10 days time, the European Championships will be upon us! (And that's not including the UK Champs, the UK U20 Champs and some of the NCAA meets that I also have watched this spring/summer.)

                    Czech team of 56 athletes - https://www.atletika.cz/aktuality/do...vyprava-na-me/ (př = hurdles)

                    Another record-sized team from a big/big-ish athletics nation, beating their 50 athletes at Berlin 2018.

                    I suppose some quota spots have been freed up by the absence of Belarus (usually about 40 athletes?) and the ANA athletes (IIRC, they were allowed 20 at Berlin 2018.)
