    MEN 3000m steeplechase: Hailemariam Amare, Abrham Sime, Tadesse Takele

    Why am I now reading in the WA preview that Girma IS running the Steeple?
    And now Wale too? Can anyone explain this mystery to me?

    These two in the steeple completely changes it!

    Ihor Hlavan (Igor Glavan) removed from Ukrainian 50k walk team in Tokyo after ban extended to 3 years (still fully served). Valeriy Litanyuk replaces him.

    I didn't; that's how the report came in

    The names are listed last, first. But this list reminds me of how much I enjoy the names of many of the Nigerian athletes. Divine, Favour, Sunday, Patience.

    This article is based on a podcast interview released on June 23rd: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/w3ct2g6l
    In the podcast, they dont ask, nor does she actually mention anything about what she is running in Tokyo (they dont even talk about Tokyo at all)

    Since that interview was released, the following has happened:

    June 27th - Miller-Uibo runs both the 200/400 at Bahamian trials
    June 27th - Jackson skips the 400 and qualifies for the 100/200 at Jamaican trials
    June 30th - Naser was banned for 2 years
    July 2nd - Mboma and Masilingi were ruled ineligible in the 400m
    July 5th - Miller-Uibo is listed as registered for the 200/400 as part of the Bahamian team to Tokyo

    So yea basically the world has changed since this interview happened. I think she doubles.

    She'll leave Tokyo empty-handed if that's her plan.

    Speaking of which, what does Miller-Uibo have in mind for Tokyo? She has been lobbying the International Olympic Committee to alter the schedule at this year's Games so she is able to compete in both the 400 and 200m events.
    But it appears her efforts have been fruitless. The three-time world championship medallist says she is now only focussing on the 200m in which she will be competing against Great Britain's Dina Asher-Smith.

    the fastest anyone has ever run and not advanced to the Olympic final is 10.01 by CJ Ujah in Rio

    (2 men have run 10.00 and not advanced to WC final)

    10.00 at the right time, e.g semi-final will likely see him advance to the final.
    In order to medal he should be able to run low 9.9, which is probably not the case, so 10.00 would be enough to reach the best achievement he could dream of at the moment : a top 8.

    10.00 is not likely to be much help
