    postings yes, "shortly" depends on your definition of the word.

    ps---advance notice that once the by-event forums are up and running several other ones will be closed.

          Daniil Medvedev asks who will take responsibility if he dies in Tokyo Olympics' heat and humidity

          https://www.cnn.com/2021/07/28/sport...ntl/index.html

          May seem unrelated but I suggest if the Temperature and humidity does not get better we will see lots of upsets. I want to be blunt and say I blame it on USA TV network money. Olympic should not be in July in Tokyo. I do not give a hoot if 16 days of Olympics collide with American football in fall. Games should have been in September. Have we heard that this the warmest summer in records? God help us 3 years from now in Paris and 7 years in LA.

            actually, I'm pretty sure European TV money plays a large role as well, not wanting overlap with soccer.

              Could part of the reason for omitting the 50K for women be that there are not enough competitions routinely on the schedule? That seems to me to be a convincing argument to having it added. I don't follow race walking enough to know that for certain.

                  Besides the events on the track and field, there will probably be one for weather and other stuff, like there was for the Trials!

                    First event starts in just over 5 hours, by my estimate!
                    Are we going to have event threads by then?

                            I note that there isn't a thread for the mixed relay, which I approve of as "the less seen the better", but I was looking for somewhere to ask about Shae Anderson's status (she's one of my CIF-SS alumni), given that she's had a bumpy road since Eugene as well as her not appearing on the lineup for the prelims.

                            Either she's penciled in for the final, not going to compete at all, or (less likely) running the heats of the real relay later in the week.
