    She did say something about changing her run up, so it may be a case of bedding that in. If so, she clearly got more distance and great lift off the board from it. Time will tell, but she was clearly thinking she could jump further, which is a good sign

    Not often you get four national records at a purely domestic meet. (Hashioka who came 2nd got a long jump NR in round 1, which Shiroyama beat in round 3. There was also a Women's 100 Hurdles NR of 13.00)

    anybody interested in Long Jump s might have a look at a fine meet at Fukui this w/e when legal 8.40.8.32 and 8.23 jumps by the top 3 japanese competing are seen via Track and Field Forum plus of the new male japanese record in the 110 m hurdles in 13.25.

    44.76. Easiest final 100m he's ever ran. Would have gone 44.2 if he'd gone through the line. Similar to the 1998 CWG semis - where Iwan Thomas ran 44.61, jogging the home straight chatting with Jamie Baulch who ran 44.82.

    Good to see Oliver Bromby get an invite for the 100m, he obviously was never gonna figure, but great experience. If the wind had been the same as Heat 1, would have run faster than Harry AA.

    When we've got some promising young guys coming through, plus likes of Edoborun, why Harry AA keeps getting invites baffles me.

    Elaine Thompson? I believe you're confusing your world class Jamaican female sprint superstars... That was Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce that Dina finished ahead of, not Thompson.

    It's surely relatively easy to be putting the nerves to bed in a DL single event. Very very different in Doha. I don't think we seen the last of the KJT jitters. And technically she should have the runway sorted by now, especially as it is an event which she clearly enjoys and is world class at in it's own right.

    SMU definitely not running the 200m in Doha. The only person missing today was Thompson. DAS has said they’re going for one peak, which means we should expect sub-22 and more likely a 21.8 or better.

    On yesterday’s race; I haven’t seen SMU had to run out of an inside lane in years. Put her in lane 3 and DAS in 6 and I think it’s a different race. You can’t pick your lane in an OG final

    its very possible she gets the gold captain negative, its also very possible she doesnt, i wouldnt put any of the other athletes ahead of her apart from maybe smu who probably wont be running it

    Fillery ran well today, he could yet get the standard for Doha next week. I wouldn’t rule out Gemili making the 100m final in Doha, world junior champion and commonwealth silver, he has pedigree

    can anyone explain the appalling performances of two British women in the steeplechase. Nearly 10 minutes and they will be social mediaing like crazy if they werent selected on the back of the IAAF satandrads. Wonder what excuses they have .

    SMU looked good but didn’t run away from DAS as she did last year, which will give DAS confidence. It’s definitely her best chance of gold this year

    you know well, lucky, that our middle distance athletes , men that is, are pretty second rate.
