    Xiaojing Liang 11.13 PB in Asha's race; Ge Manqi 11.23 & Yongli Wei (11.26) also; But PBs of 10.99 & 11.04. China are one leg short of a really good 4x1.

    I’m pretty sure Sawyers and Jessie Knight are at the Belgian Champs this weekend, for a final roll of the dice. Obviously, you’re balancing rest and their team knows more than we do etc, but I’m amazed someone like Asha has put all her eggs in tonight’s basket - I’d have lined up races and pulled out if I got the standard. In Asha’s case, I might even want a few races, given lack of a season etc

    Unfortunately for him I cannot see British Athletics accepting any invitation. The selection document for Worlds states that invites may only be accepted if an athlete has medal potential for Doha or Tokyo.

    They may just accept one for Jaz Sawyers or Cindy Ofili (and before anyone comes back on this, no I won't be rushing to put money on them to win medals) but Jaz has decent championship pedigree and 6.86 her PB could be good enough to get on the podium - of course it could take 7:06 but these things are often difficult to predict. Being on funding will help her cause too. Cindy Ofili arguably has a stronger case (more specifically for Tokyo) as she has been closer to a global medal, just 0.02 off the podium in Rio but I fear for her that no longer being on funding will go against her.

    Doesn't work like that jjimbojames. The IAAF are not going to issue invites where they are already multiple qualifiers from the same country.

    Midnight tonight for UKA’s criteria , but I guess they might be hoping to get high enough up the rankings to make a case when the invite comes that UKA should accept it

    Phil Norman is still in with a chance of getting the invitation from IAAF which I think he deserves. He's twice come just short of the time with runs largely by himself. Of course I'm sure he doesn't trust British Athletics to accept the invitation and wants to take the selection into his own hands.

    Whilst trying to find out about the selection dates on British Athletics twitter, I noticed with a certain grim humour that they're wishing Melissa Courtney a happy birthday and telling her to have a great day. Unfortunately, I'm not sure she will...

    carterhatch: yes he did , and according to tonbridge twighlight twitter ran 1:46.31, and he does make a very gracious twitter himself thanking all concerned.
    Me, after the men's 800m final in the Trials: I'll make a prediction now, Learmonth will struggle to get the time... and if he *does* get the time for Doha, he'll go out in the heats.
    Well, looks like my prediction is currently right on track... Remind me, what is the point of a "Guy Learmonth"?

    I knew I should have added the caveat 'was paced by, among others, ..'

    Let’s not forget Chris McAllister taking it to 600. Looking very strong and will be interesting to see what else he’s got in store over 4h

    Looks like a great effort by all concerned at Tonbridge Twilight - most of all the organisers - unlucky for Thomas with a PB of 1.46:08 and noted the race was paced by Jack Green! (could devote a whole thread to his trials and tribulations) ...

    That was an epic 800m. English just off the qualifying mark, a new pb for spencer Thomas and a sub-4 minute mile for good measure. Fantastic level for a regional English meet!
