    While we're otherwise engaged with Eugene stuff, Madrid is having some interesting people over for a fiesta.

    m400 - WVNk, Zambrano, Thebe
    mTJ - Zango, Pichardo
    w1500 - Hailu
    wTJ = Rojas, Povea (let's see what the Cuban can do outside the Caribbean)

    The fun begins at 1:30pm ET

    Looking forward to Rojas, to see whether or not she breaks the world record.

        Rojas is just awesome. I wonder how far she could jump if she had Povea's technique?

          Ms. Rojas said that she wants to jump 16 meters. To have a chance she may need to improve her technique. Also, this meet is the place to see if Liadgmis Povea can jump a wind-legal 15 meters.

            Im really interested to see Wayde Van Niekerk in the 400. Its been 3 1/2 years since he tore his ACL and Miniscus and that's an eternity in the 400. I'm hoping he can break 43 and set us all up for an amazing Olympic 400 final.

              Sub-43? I'd be happy with sub-45 right now.

                Exactly. First thing he needs is a 44.90 or better so he can actually qualify for the Olympics.

                  Whoa. I pressed the wrong number on my keyboard! I meant sub 44!

                    Since Povea will be in Madrid this Saturday, there is another Cuban I would like to see triple jump outside Cuba. That would be the junior Ms. Leyanis Perez. The overseas competition experience will do her good, since it will prepare her for the major championships, and Olympics, to come.

                          17.83w(+2.5)/58-6 for Zango, 17.69(+0.2)/58-0 1/2 WL for Pichardo.

                          15.19(+1.4)/49-10 and 15.16 for Rojas on her 1st two jumps ... more to come

                            Zambrano with a nice 44.51 over Van Niekerk's 44.56
