    By the way, anyone who's watched the Finnish TV broadcasts of their summer GP meetings will probably know that it's pronounced Retta (with a rolled 'r') rather than Rita.
    Ha, bang on! A 7.77 NR and WL for Hurske in the final, her 5th NR of the winter.

    What's she going to do outdoors? 12.5 ? 12.4x ?!

    I note Aminatou Seyni has just run a 60m PB of 7.11. What will they be capable of over 200 this summer? Another eligibility storm is brewing thanks to the powers that be being unable to get to grips with common sense...

    Can't wait for another round of 'everything is racist' when legitimate questions regarding Seyni's participation are inevitably raised after the impeding jaw-dropping performances.

    EDIT: Down to 7.08 in the final.

    They've got the track events back on the WA feed.

    It turns out that Elvin Canales (mentioned 2 posts above in that Spanish 800) is from Honduras.

    Ordonez had a lovely time there with a personal pacemaker for 795m!!!

    Really strong running there, great depth.

    Just finished watching the Italian and Spanish Indoor Championships and they were very enjoyable with a lot of good names and top athletes in action. There was some doubling in the distances too, e.g., Ludovica Cavalli, Federica del Buono & Marta Garcia.

    In Madrid there was also 3 National Records plus one absolutely amazing race you have to watch, the Men's 800 final - probably the best race there'll be all indoor season! Before you read on (spoiler below), watch that at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biLbZkAEeOM

    Italian Championships

    Women
    400: 1 Folorunso 52.28 iPB. There was 2 or 3 indoor PBs behind her as well.
    1500: See post # 36
    3000: 1 Ludovica Cavalli completing the double (Battocletti absent). 9:14 winning time but a 29.0 last 200
    60H: See post # 37
    TJ: 1 Dariya Derkach 14.12, 2 Ottavia Cestonaro 14.11 iPB
    PV: 1 Roberta Bruni 4.62 iPB ... 3 Giulia Valetti Borgnini 4.42 (a 12cm outright PB for this 21yo)

    Men
    60: 1 Samuele Ceccarelli 6.54 PB, 2 LM Jacobs 6.55
    800: 1 Catalin Tecuceanu 1:45.99 iPB, 2 Simone Barontini 1:46.82 iPB
    60H: 1 Lorenzo Ndele Simonelli 7.66 PB (Dal Molin 7.54 in the heats; DNS in final)
    SP: 1 Fabbri 21.60, 2 Weir 21.46

    Spanish Championships

    Women
    60: 1 Jael Bestue 7.19 PB, 2 Maribel Perez 7.31 (Perez won't be going to Euros this time)
    400: 1 Eva Santidrian 53.05 (improved her indoor PB by 1.37s this weekend!)
    3000: This was Marta versus Marta (Perez and Garcia). Perez had beaten Garcia by 0.5s when they both got the Euros standard in France a couple of weeks ago. Here, after going through 2000 in 6:22 the last 1000 was fast and furious (2:45-high) and they were neck-and-neck on the final lap until Perez just edged ahead in the final 20m to win by 0.04s.
    60H: 1 Xenia Benach 8.07 (8.01 PB in the heats - a qualifier for Stamboul)
    LJ: 1 Fatima Diame 6.66

    Men
    400: 1 Husillos 45.58 iNR, 2 Inaki Canal 45.89 iPB, 3 Manuel Guijarro 46.07 SB and David Garcia 46.60 in the semis (a Spanish U20 indoor record)
    800: What a tremendous race, and loaded too! Fast and furious after Mariano Garcia had taken it out at 50.53 at 400, there was the inevitable flailing on the last lap. With 50m to go there was 5 in contention at the front ... 1 Saul Ordonez 1:45.88 iPB CR, 2 Mariano Garcia 1:45.91, 3 Javier Miron 1:45.98 iPB, 4 Adrian Ben 1:46.12 iPB, 5 Elvin Josue Canales 1:46.23 (outright PB by 1.3s !). All 5 were inside the Euros standard but presumably Ben & Canales will miss out.
    3000: Mechaal soloed to victory in 7:42.9. He was attacking the CR but missed it by a few tenths.
    60H: 1 Enrique Llopis 7.48 =NR, 2 Daniel Cisneros 7.64 PB ... European champ Asier Martinez hit the penultimate hurdle hard
    TJ: 1 Jordan Diaz 17.59 - indoor Spanish record

    I'm now going to try to watch the Polish, French & Finnish Championships over the next couple of days. I want to be as informed as I possibly can be for the Euro Indoors Prediction Contest !​​

    I hope Hall does Gotzis this year - it will be 6 weeks before US Champs so plenty of time between both - she can stop off in Paris on the way back for some R&R and maybe watch her other half Ben Shelton at the French Open in Roland Garros.

    Predicting Hall to reign for years is silly as just as she has come to the top very quickly , so could some unknown do the same. The score she achieved was achieved at high altitude so must be worth a little less across the events, 4 at least .

    Success Eduan wasn't the only teenager winning a senior national title yesterday. Jolanda Kallabis, last year's EU18 2000m steeplechase champion, won the German Indoor 800m title in 2:03.71, a PB of almost a second. She had just turned 18 the previous day, so this was a very nice birthday present for herself, as she beat several athletes who were a decade older than herself.

    That time moves her up to 2nd on the European U20 rankings for this year, 2nd on the German U20 indoor all time list (after a whole swathe of beyond-dodgy East German times had been scrubbed from the record books in the last couple of years), and 9th on the European U20 indoor all time list too.

    Oh, they would be insane to do that (which isn't to say it won't happen...)

  • philipo

    The posts are surely predicting a very likely scenario over the next years, but I would be love to see Halls huge talent in a European setting. If she and her coach are wise they will resist the temptations of competing in the 400m and even the long hurdles.

    Yes indeed. Given that she added over 400 points to her pentathlon over the last year, she only has to find 250 for her heptathlon. I think the main danger for her is the risk of spreading herself too thin by adding extra events, eg she has doubled 400h at the US level. But that and potential injury aside, she should supplant Thiam if not this year then next, and likely to stay at the top for a home Olympics in LA.

    Anna Hall also came back after her 5004 pentathlon to win the 400m in a new PB of 51.04. Her coach apparently believes she can get to under 50 in a properly paced race. Would have to think that suggests 200m pace greater than even KJT at the peak of her powers. You never know with the multis, freak fouls can happen and injuries have derailed many a promising athlete, but given that she seems to be physically robust enough to compete a very demanding schedule and her throws are already perfectly acceptable with a lot of room to grow, it seems she'll be knocking on the door of 7000 points sooner rather than later.

    It's crazy. Kovacs being amazing too has helped.

    He’s just taken the event to a whole new level. Indoors, but an outright WR.
