      We'll see if the organiser's put Bol & Klaver in the same heat! Thus far in Metz and Vienna the organisers put them in different heats, something Meuwly said he didn't request specifically and left it to the meet (unlike with some other training partners.....* cough* SAFP & Thompson).

      Lets not forget their training partner Sprunger is also down to race, and presumably at least one of the top Poles will debut - @Powell, any news there?

      I am really keen to see if Klaver can pace her first 200m better. She blasted a 23.1 in her last race and 23.3 in her opener. A 23.5-23.6 would be perfect, and up to 23.8 she would still be using her strength, which is her speed, but would fair much better. She's been dying in the final 30m. Interestingly on their IG stories, in their last training session Bol, Klaver & Sprunger ran a 400m together, and Klaver beat Bol by a meter or two, with Sprunger a bit further back. Klaver looked to hold off a bit in the opening 200. We shall see.

        They already have the start lists out and they are all in the same heat, along with Święty-Ersetic: https://domtel-sport.pl/copernicus/?...K400&impreza=6

            It's on Polish TV right now. Clemons just won her 60H heat in 7.92, now 7.91.

            First 21m throw in mSP in third round by Haratyk - 21.28. Now Stanek 21.20.

            Tori Franklin first TJ . . . looked flat . . . foul in mid-13.

              Grant Holloway in his 60H heat - 7.45. Adjusted to 7.43. [RT .199!]
              Mallett second in 7.66.
              Noga 7.69 [RT .104!]

              Belocian 7.56 in 2nd Heat. Eaton DNF - looked off-rhythm.

              Haratyk over 70' - 21.47

              Franklin fouls again.

              HOT w3000 now running.

                Did Dibaba drop out or back already? She asked for the WR pace but not even in the lead pack...

                I see, she dropped out just before the 800m mark. Looked to be holding her hamstring

                  They keep pulling away to SPand we can't what's happening.
                  It's Hailu, Chepkoech, Worku alone.

                  Skvartsova and Papahristou out to 14.39 and 14.35.

                  Worku dropped.

                  Hailu in dead sprint! 8:31.24.

                      Viyaleta Skvartsova (BLR), a 14.39 WL PB in the TJ Round 2. She was the European U20 Outdoor Champion in 2017.

                            They just introduced Trey Culver, fresh off his 2.33, against some BigBoiz!

                            Finally, an interesting kit. Sprunger as . . . ocelot?

                              Other way round!

                              Often called Voula as well which seems to be a common nickname for Paraskevi in Greece. Don't ask me why or how!
