    Wow. Well, good. Track is better when fast times come from all over.
    You there, on the motorbike! Sell me one of your melons!

      This pic is from the 4x100 introductions in Tokyo last year. Blake is 5'11", so Seville is probably 5'6" or 5'7", with 9.86 making him the fastest man ever under 5'8", unless he's grown an inch or two over the past 10 months.

        Sasha Zhoya. He ran 12.72 over the 39s, and if he has adapted well to the 42s, he could actually vie for a medal in Eugene!! He turns 20 just before then. Reminds me of Skeets.
        In his spare time, as a 17yo, he vaulted 5.56, over 18
        Sigh, I shoulda known better - he was a no-show.

        As for Seville, look out for when he matures a little!

          He run 14.13 in the heat, finishing behind Simonelli, Trgovcevic and O'Hara.
          Then he withdrew from the final.

          • At least ETH isn't injured, after pulling out of the diamond league meet. She looked really good running that 10.94 into a pretty big headwind. And to come back and run the 200, she must feel good!

                  According to French media he had a bad cramp; still insisted on running the heat then decided to not run the final.

                      The Fosbury Flop of the Javelin!
                      But seriously, might be a good way to avoid fouling!

                      • Two Italian women ran sub-4:05.6 in the 1500 in Castiglione yesterday and neither of them was named Battocletti or Sabbatini ... Elena Bello (very much an 800 specialist to this point - 2:00.4 PB) took 4 seconds off the PB she ran last month, running 4:05.09. In 5th place Federica del Buono ran the 2nd fastest time of her career, 4:05.58. Her 4:05.32 PB dates back to 2014!

                        That's 21yo Leandro Ramos (POR) at the Ibero-American Championships yesterday. He threw a 84.78 NR at the Doha DL last week.

                        Whereas that was kind of half cartwheel, half front flip he also finished one throw with an excellent "100%" front flip!

                            Near as I can figger out, 'Challenger' means mostly B-list domestic. Bronze means mostly national-class domestic with a smattering of international 'good'. Silver can get some good intl fields and Gold should have some (not all) very good fields.

                            And thanks for all the links; sure saves us all alotta digging.

                                Ooh, I think you're underselling the Challenger meetings and Bronze meetings.

                                There are no hard & fast "rules" but ...

                                The Challenger meetings sometimes have a lot of good international athletes, especially the European meetings. Just look at the results of Sunday's Castiglione meeting as an example - https://www.worldathletics.org/compe...esults/7176891 - a 17.64 TJ, Omanyala & Cisse in the 100, 5 guys running 1:46.3 or better in the 800, four sub-13:15 in the 5000 with a winning time of 13:02, three East African women running 4:04/4:05 in the 1500 & two of the top Italians doing so as well, and Gerashchenko 1.90 in the HJ (with Borthwick, Lake & the top Italians also competing).
                                I know that many of the Challenger meetings in Europe used to be European Area Permit meetings so they've a long history of attracting international fields.

                                The Bronze meetings do vary a bit in quality but it's not uncommon to have the quality of fields that they have in Dessau & Huelva this Wednesday - far more international athletes competing than domestic athletes in many of the events and some very good athletes too.
                                Some other traditionally pretty good Bronze meetings coming up in the next couple of weeks are those in Poznan, Filothei (Athens), Andujar, Rehlingen & Prague.
