      Jumping well this week doesn't prove he actually jumped 8.60 2 weeks ago but there's no particular reason why he couldn't jump that far at some stage this year.

      He's only 23 this year and he stated earlier this year that he was faster on the runway than ever and was expecting improvement on his outdoor PB of 8.32 +0.9 from 2019. He didn't have an outdoor season in 2020 after an indoor season with 8.26 SB.

      This year, he jumped 8.35 SB to win Euro indoors this year, which is better than GRE NR holder Tsatoumas ever did.

      In fact, in 2007, the year Tsatoumas set the 8.66 record, he finished 2nd (best result ever) in Euro indoors with 8.02m and his SB was 8.17. His lifetime best indoors was 8.23.

      Tsatoumas opened his 2007 outdoor season with 8.20 +5.4 and 7.72 +2.0 and then got going with 8.66 +1.6 NR, 8.54 +1.8, 8.20 +0.4 (NC qual), 8.37 +0.5 (NC final) before tailing off at the end of the season with 8.16 -0.9 and 8.10 -0.1.

      That's not too disimilar in standard to Tentoglou so far this season and Tsatoumas was two years older at 25 in 2007.

          Yeah, it doesn't prove he jumped 8.60 but it does show he is on track and capable of doing so. Before his 8.48 I would not have expected a 8.60. But as you noted Tsatoumas was on a similar trajectory. I hope he PRs again given his improvement on the runway!

            • I don't think anyone has mentioned this yet....
              Ryoto Yamagata broke the Japanese NR in the 100m with a time of 9.95.
              Shuhei Tada was 2nd in 10.01.
              They will definitely be medal contenders in the 4 x 100m.

                Some argue that having "doubts" about these athletes is unfair to them or even racist. They scratched from a 400m in Castiglione a few weeks back and finally start their European season with a 200m. They were apparently considered to feature in the Florence DL, where there is no 400m. Not surprising in my opinion.
                Impressive race nevertheless.

                  I'm rooting hard for them. Their success this year at the Games could be a huge boost for an entire continent of immense untapped talent.
                  If they can't replicate their early success, the next set of great performances to come out of there will be looked at askance. That would indeed be unfair.

                    If their situation is what it is, keeping it quiet is how the powers that be should handle it; let them silently stop running the 400 and focus on the 200m without the media circus and political football.

                      total crap that any athlete from Nations with no history of cheating should have to go through such measures...as we still honor former eastern bloc performances.

                        And other suspicious ones westward. But the thing is not about "cheating", at least nothing deliberate is at stake.

                          What is the alternative? Should specific nations be exempt from routine drug testing just because no previous athletes from the country ever tested positive?

                          If the Namibians have been tested, it's because their elite times put them in the pool to be tested, not because their nation or race is being targeted for anything.

                          • Ryota Yamagata. 9.95 (NR). The 4th Japanese guy to go under 10.0
                            I have also learned some stunning features of the stadium he ran in. Any sprinter interested in breaking the record should consider going there.

                              Not a result, but this is the startlist and time for the Ethiopian trials later today.

                                Perfect conditions for a record - 9.95 +2.0 for his first time under 10 flat. His previous best time was 10.00 +0.2 in 2017 plus another 10.00 with much stronger wind.

                                That 10.00 is probably a superior run to his NR but it's clear he's back to his best after a few quiet years where his best was 10.11 +1.7 in 2019.

                                And, as you say, just in time for a tasty 4x100 final. My only concern is that all the top-5 JPN athletes set their SBs in Tottori on the same day in the same race! The performers list is currently 9.95, 10.01, 10.13, 10.18, 10.22, all with +2.0.
