    thanks for those. Ok, so, I'm not being thick here - or difficult - but those don't seem to help me. Re the 10 Russian athletes eligible for competition this year, I can't see anywhere that Klishina is one of those? Have the 10 been named yet? In fact, before that 7m+ LJ, I would not have thought she would be in the 10, but with that performance she may well be considered by Rus Athletics now.
    Re gm's link, unless it's taken me to a different page, the latest article I can see is from 2016 when she was granted neutral status...but I thought that had been gazumped & everything was re-set? It didn't mean she was forever competing as a neutral?

    Am I missing something?
    I was trying to point out that WA recognized her performance from the weekend, which leads me to believe she is approved for non-championship competition at the very least.

    • Davidson Ezinwa (NIG) ran 9.91 into a -2.1 headwind back in 1992 (ran 9.92 with allowable wind a week later).

      I know it's at high altitude, but this one is the sub10 with the strongest headwind. Gatlin had one 10.02 with -3.5m/s in Tokyo

        hmm, I'm seeing his April 11th 1992 mark as 9.91 -2.3 but with a doubtful wind reading for some reason? Also seeing he ran 9.96 a week later (April 18th). Niether mark shows up on T&FN NCAA top lists though but the 9.91 is on USTFCCCA record lists.

        His actual PB appears to be 9.94 from July 1994

        • I think I saw something a year or two ago that said that because she's been living and training in the States for so long that she's not grouped in with home country Russians!

            I was just going off of memory so I might've been a little off on the numbers. His 9.91 into negative wind was at Azusa Pacific, a facility known for swirling winds (there were varying positive and negative winds in the other 100m heats that day), and then he ran the other sub-10 a week or two later winning the Mt. SAC Relays. There was no valid reason that I know of for the doubtful-wind-reading listing other than disbelief of the possibility of the performance. His marks don't show up on NCAA lists because he competed for an NAIA school.

              Unless they have ANA status they are only allowed to compete within Russia.

              • In China today

                wSP Gong 19.54 (64+)

                wJT Liu 64.56 (211+); Lu 62.90 (206+), followed by Yu, Su, Liu, Sun, Li, Ge, Liu Lu (!) and Jin.

                I love the names but depending on the transliteration, I get confused by Wu's (Hu?) on first!

                      Decent time, but wind and altitude (1583m ) aided.
                      But it does show he's getting there!

                        There's a Russian hammer thrower competing for a JC in New Mexico. On March 19 in Texas, threw 75.73A. He was competing in Russia in 2019, started competing in US in 2020, won the last two JUCO indoor weight throws. But he also competed in Russian in Aug-Sep of 2020. He has marks on tilastopaya since 2011. He's 26.
                        Молодец!
                        Cheers,

                          I think Lü (吕) is now universally transliterated as Lyu to avoid such confusion, isn't that the case? So it's Lyu Huihui who threw 62.90m. All the Liu's here are the same as Liu Xiang's family name.

                          • Thanks for making the Van Niekerk/Simbine race video available, ATK! I know it was tailwind and high altitude, still I am very curious about what Van Niekerk can do in Tokyo!

                              He looks pretty danged good there.
                              I think Norman just got even more serious at practice. [btw, Norman has a great newsletter anyone can subscribe to - about his training]
