    I would be curious how many time 9 is run given that that lane, even if it exists, is used? Aren't 1 and 9 many times unused in certain finals/races?

      Yes, with Delilah in 5 and Bol in lane 4, DM could pass Bol who would be on her left hand side!

        Or just never see her like in Tokyo:

        Muhammad lane 5
        Bol lane 4

          I see Ivanyuk won the HJ at 2.30, with McEwen 2nd at 2.27. While those numbers may be rather uninspiring, I believe that's McEwen's best Diamond League finish ever ... so there's that! Actually, I don't see another Diamond League meet for him.

            My local time for the meet on Peacock begins at 11:00am but the 400m starts at 10:54am. I guess I won't be seeing that live.

              No thanks. I'm not the one who said, and I quote, "... invariably never..."

                If you have a VPN the half hour before the official TV window is live on the Swiss channel RTS Deux at https://www.rts.ch/play/tv/direct/rt...LiveId=3608517

                It's on the same network of channels as SRF so if it doesn't play first time, refresh the page to avoid the issues that Atticus had earlier.

                    I just got Nord VPN after reading some good reviews plus they had a special -$89.00 for 27 months. Hoping both JI and KW get the DLR. Tough but doable!

                      That’s completely irrelevant to your original (incorrect) point. Of course there will be less times in the top 50 run in the outside lanes, as they are typically filled with the weaker athletes in the field. That’s unrelated to whether or not those athletes are more or less likely to PR.

                        Another crappy night for sleeping coming up.
                        Lausanne starts at 4:00am here in Aotearoa NZ.

                          Also, many tracks, including ones that have hosted Diamond League meets and the old Hayward Field, don't have 9 lanes.

                            I think the reference might have gone over a few heads.

                            I had not known the meaning and backstory on the lyric, which obviously has nothing to do with the Netherlands.

                              My Caribbean wife taught me the meaning of that fun song. As a non-partaker I now feel foolish singing the lyrics.
                              You there, on the motorbike! Sell me one of your melons!

                                Not at all. We can enjoy Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds without dropping acid!
