    Just noticed that there are very few morning/early afternoon sessions outside of the weekends. Most end up late afternoon, evening in the East Coast (sucks for European viewers) but great for me since I won't miss much of anything while at work during the day. I was getting ready to talk to my boss about time off, but looks like I won't even need to!

    It's pretty late in the day in Europe, and as far as I can tell there is no update for this week.

    Damian Warner skipping the Canadian champs due to a sore knee. Hmm. Open door for someone else?

    As per duplicate thread, Dafne Schippers is currently not qualified for the w100m. She's entered in the 100 at the Dutch nationals this weekend, but the weather is due to be stormy, so it's unlikely she will get the QT. She has the 200m from last season, but hasn't run any 200's since Tokyo.

    The qualifying period finishes in 6 days on June 26th. Most National Championships will be staged on that weekend, so it's a last chance for many athletes to qualify. The current qualifiers are on the World Athletics website as usual:

    https://worldathletics.org/stats-zone/road-to/7137279

    One notable non-qualifier in the w100m as it stands is Dafne Schippers. The 100m, in which she is entered at the NC's this weekend, will be held on the Friday evening. At present the weather forecast is very poor, with 50% chance of rain and storms, so looking at her form this year, 11.15 will be extremely difficult. She has the Q for the 200m.

    Are there any other big names that haven't got the Q in other events?

    Sounds like Boling isn't entered in the LJ, which is a pity, but overall, I think the US team will have at least three entrants in almost all the events. Of course, rankings may change between now and the deadline, and hopefully, some additional athletes will make standard/rankings at USATF.

    On the men's side, I only see the javelin being short. And the two walks.

    On the women's side, I think the US has a full squad. Even the TJ and jav, which have usually been the outliers. Looks like the 20K walk has just one, but the 35K walk has the full complement.

    Am I missing anything?

    Boling seems to be shying away from the LJ at the moment and his OD best so far is under 7.50. I would have thought the LJ would be his better event for a spot. Not sure the 100/200 will cut it for him with so many US greats.

    That the USA would adopt Japanese travel restrictions?! I certainly don't see that happening, if for no other reason than political.
