    Also, seems that Kendell Williams will get the wild card in the Heptathlon for winning the 2021 Combined Events Challenge.

    Tapper is beautiful to watch hurdle. She's like a little wind-up machine. Perfect.

    Kenya's wild cards:

    Emmanuel Korir (M 800m)
    Timothy Cheruiyot (M 1500m)
    Conseslus Kipruto (M 3K St)
    Helen Obiri (W 5000m)
    Beatrice Chepkoech (W 3K St)
    Ruth Chepngetich (W Marathon)

    I don't know how Kenya selects though (US gives precedent to World Champion over DL Champion), so Kenya could also add these DL winners to the team and only select 2 at their trials:

    Norah Jeruto (W 3k St)
    Benjamin Kigen (W 3k St)

    I was surprised (but not disappointed) to see that the DL Final in Zurich did not use the Final-3- attempt procedure that had been in effect at the earlier DL meets this year in the throws and horizontal jumps.

    It's definitely overdone for me. It's like 'the wave'. The novelty has worn off. If its spontaneous or the Oly like you say, fine. But, now it's an obligation for everything? It's like the John Prine song where he put so many flag decals on his car that he couldn't see. I don't think you run the Diamond League for your country, really and it seems a couple winners weren't so interested in the flag (and it wasn't a protest, more like they had other things on there mind).
    I'd have to watch it again, but I'm pretty sure a couple of the athletes were draped with the flag (US flag) upside down--with the stars on the bottom!
    That was the fault of the people who put the flag on the athlete's shoulders!

    this is not the thread for discussing this non-news topic

    It's the source of those natural levels that are the problem, so I understand.

    And if that is the source then Mboma is not a biological woman, at least IMO.
