I think he can gain some valuable points if he can get up to his season's best. And as I already mentioned, with the conditions expected in Bydgozycz, he might be also trying to gain the 2.30m Doha qualifying height too.

    Our worst events will be the women's and men's javelin, no question. Also the women's high jump now that Lake isn't going to be there.
    This is true but the underachievers are the ones you expect good points from and they don't deliver.
    In the javelin, anything more than the minimum will be cause for wild celebration.

        She's taken up that mantle since Lally's retirement.

          Nice run by Cameron Fillery in the heats of the 110 hurdles - pb, 2nd place, and scalp of the guy who beat him in the u23s.

            Nice run from Cameron Fillery in the 110m hurdles, gets 2nd place and qualifies for the final in the weekend, and he might have run a PB with a strong second half of the race. 13.64 (+0.6 m/s) just outside of his PB a very good run from the 20 year old. Winning the heat was Spain's Ortega who clocked 13.39 and looked comfortable.

              Not quite a PB, 13.64 was Fillery's time, but as you said, be beat one of the athletes who finished ahead of him in the U-23's last month. A good run from the young lad.

                Kilty making that 200m heat, from a tough inside lane 2, look pretty easy as he wins it in 20.72 (+0.2 m/s), beating the newly crowned French 200m champion Fall (20.82) who is a specialist at the event. I'm telling you guys, Kilty is gonna be a decent 200m runner from now on.

                  Just gotta say, whoever designed that bobcat mascot for this event.... needs to find another job. It looks hideous!

                    Wildlife pedant's corner - It would be a European Lynx. Only the American Lynx is called a Bobcat.

                  Jodie Williams looking good in the 200m...22.97 into a bit of a headwind (-0.9 m/s) and on the tight lane 2, she shut it down well before the end and personally, I think she's currently in 22.5/6 shape at the moment and will be hard to beat in the final, though Kambungji will be her main competitor for maximum points.

                    Great to see Niclas Baker, the 400m runner who came out of nowhere this season, doing such a good job on opening leg in the 4 x 4 mixed relay. And then Yasmin Liverpool, Jessica Turner, and young Alex Knibbs finished the job to win it comfortably.

                      Did anyone else notice how our caption name changed from Great Britain and North to Great Britain and NI and then Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
                      Kept me entertained to see what it'd be next between the action. 🤣

                        She looked very relaxed and easing through. My only concern is she has the 4x400m an hour after her final!

                          Amalie Ieul gets Norway off to a winning start today in the 400H in Sandnes (ETCh First League) - 55.80.

                          Karsten Warholm has withdrawn with a slight niggle.

                          Richard Kilty's Lithuanian triple jumping wife has now taken her husband's name (after them being married for a couple of years?) - she's Dovile Kilty now.

                            Karoline Grovdal does the biz for Norway in the 3000 in Sandnes, ahead of Maureen Koster about a second back. After they all jogged to 2000m in 7:03 she covered the last 1000 in 2:41 and bits.

                            ... And Hedda Hynne keeps the home crowd in a good mood by winning the 800.
