      I imagine he's been targeting this post-Euros. I would make him second favourite behind James.

      Looks like it. ETH also absent from the sprints. DN will struggle in the 100m against this field as will Dobbin in the 200m.

      Surprised Beth is doing it tbh, she looked fairly done in Munich

    Jake Wightman doing 800 rather than 1500, as expected (he qualified for both).

      Some problems for the organisers in sticking with the general rules of 8 for sprints and 6 for field. Some people there who did not appear in the qualified athletes lists. 9 athletes as it suits a few times, especially Richardson is in the womens 100m.Possibly cos of DAS withdrawing. A Swiss guy in the short hurdles who I know did not qualify. Sad to see Bird has decided she has done enough this year.
      A couple? of field events with 7 not 6 athletes .Sieradski the Pole looks as a pace maker in the 800. I am sure he was not a qualified athlete.
      All told I expect 3 or 4 max outstanding track performances after a long hard year for many athletes. Where will Prescod finish I wonder.
      Some of the entrants are out of form, notably De Grasse after injury and the leading 200m American, Gabby Thomas, who has been injured for some considerable time.Probably notable competition in the middle distances, men and women.
      How will Mageean cope with Kipyegon.
      Will Moraa run a CG type race in the 800m.
      Can Jake do it again.Will Krop go hell for leather in the 5K.
      I am hoping Broadbell wins the short hurdles.

        Wow the womens 1500m looks like one to watch. With 8 runners that have gone under 3.59 this season. I hope they aim for the world record.

          Possibly only Kipyegon can time-trial to a WR. Anyone else is going to require a bit of magic.
          So here's a scenario: FK leads through the bell, but Tsegay has somehow managed to stay attached, with Mageean, Hailu and Muir a little further back. Mageean attacks hard from 300m out and bridges the group to Tsegay at 200m. Mageean and Hailu can then only hold station to the end, while Muir jumps Tsegay round the bend and sets off after FK........
          ....then shades of Aouita v Cram in 1985.

          -Its just a daydream of course. Laura has too much running in her legs. This is actually the scenario for a certain race in 2024.

              Amongst Brits not mentioned, AE Markovc in the 5000, Ugen in the long jump, Heyward and Kerr in the 1500, Keely in the 800
              AHW gets a run out in the 400 pre-programme race alongside Van Nierkerk

                Ugen has had a difficult later year, typically happens after a fine indoors.
                Very pleased to see Heyward in the race.Think we may have seen the best from AHW for this year.

                  I reckon Kip will b somewhat fresher than most of her opponents.. I think if LM gets a first 3 or 4 she will have performed admirably after the last draining few weeks.

                    It would be somehow in keeping with Reece Prescod's unpredictable career if he won the DL title and got a bye to Budapest.

                    The standard is really low for a DL final. He's got the 3rd fastest SB on paper behind Bromell and Blake.

                      Bloody hell Kovacs.

                      23.23 to go 2nd on all time lists and third furthest put of all time.

                      Something special had been brewing, but wow!

                        Kovacs has been overshadowed but my goodness he is good!

                          9.93. An outlier perhaps. Worth looking at his seasons performances

                            Based upon season's performances he's obviously more likely to run 10.2 than 9.9 but that's the thing about Prescod - he's a prodigious talent who normally underperforms but, every once in a while .. .. .. .. .
