      I wasn't clear, but I was referring to her overall presence and threat for records in the distance races now.

                I know she's not on your list anyway, but just to also clarify, Bol definitely isn't running, as she has confirmed her last two races are Zurich & Bellinzona.

                  I hope she continues to be her unfiltered self if she loses to Mboma. Maybe it will give some of the other women the courage to say what they're really thinking.

                    If Kerley runs the 100 as planned, he "only" needs to run 9.83 to beat WvN and become #4 on the combined 100-200-400 list. 9.77 to beat Norman AND tie #2 with Michael Johnson.

                      Isn't Niyonsaba forbidden from running the 1500m?

                          We're running out of daylight, Mondo!
                          Nilsen needs to join the 6MC!

                          So they just dropped the w10000 when Hassan went to the Mile; or Hassan went to the Mile when they dropped the 10000?

                            Interesting, I figured Norman shut his season down. Not expecting much but would be great to see if he runs a win legal sub 10 here.

                              It starts 50 minutes before the Peacock/NBCSN TV window; we'll probably her coming down the homestretch.
                              The time schedule is screwed up, BTW, M PV at 19:30 (between 18:34 and 18:56) is listed before the Opening Ceremony at 19:00.
                              The W 1500 is a Mile. BTW, in an Athletics Weekly article, Francine Niyonsaba was quoted as saying her next meet is Brussels, where she'll run the 1500!

                              There's no w1500m in Brussels and she's entered in the 5000m

                                Who knows about qualifying for the DL final and how ties are broken? How rigid are the points in qualifying for the DL final? Does it matter if the runner never finished better than 4th? https://www.diamondleague.com/filead...g_24082021.pdf
                                Looks like in the 200 m women, there can't be a ETH-Mboma rematch. Top 6 on the list would be in on points, plus Masilingi, leaving 1 lane.
