      Though its possible, its hard for me to imagine Muhammad losing to anyone aside from McLaughlin right now.

        Let’s see if Crouser can make another dent in the top 10 all time list.

        The MPV should be quite a show also.

            The Men's High Jump on Wednesday is live on Swiss TV (VPN needed) from 5.50pm - 8.25pm local time at https://www.srf.ch/play/tv/live/srf-...a-15e0c4ccd3d0

            On Thursday the W 200, W 800 & M 400 with Warholm are taking place in the half hour before the world feed/TV window starts at 8pm local time. But that half hour can be viewed on another Swiss TV channel at https://www.rts.ch/play/tv/direct/rt...LiveId=3608517 (VPN needed again)

              I wonder how Sam Kendricks's little tussle with Covid in Tokyo will affect him here--both physically and emotionally!
              He said he was physically fine, but to be kicked out of Tokyo before competing has to have affected him emotionally!
              Will it be his motivation to top 20 for the first time??

                He's gonna have over 150 22+ throws after this. Insane.

                  Wonder if Jakob can improve and beat Jacob(last year came in 2nd to him when he PBed)? This is gonna be, hopefully, one of the highlights of the meet. At 20 JI is already in the top 10 in 1500,Mile, 2000,and 3000 -12th in the 5000. Kid is on a roll.

                      I think he is close to half of all of the 22.50 throws.

                      20/43 22.50 throws where it was his best of the day.
                      29/40 22.50 ancillary throws.

                      so, 49/83 22.50 throws all time.

                      4/7 23.0 throws.

                        I believe he said he had no symptoms in Tokyo.
                        He'll be rarin' to go, but there's still this kid named Mondo to contend with.

                          Not sure that this is the occasion or the track for Elaine to attack the WR. What’s left on the agenda? Paris,Zurich and Brussels? Not sure their either. Maybe Eugene was the opportunity
                          Apparently Ignorance is bliss

                              I think I agree, Eugene would have been the perfect opportunity, because it's such a fast track. But we'll see! There have been some fast times set here over the years.
