    What a shambles the EAF continue to be. It's a good job for them that Ethiopian athletes don't seem to be particularly litigious!!
    A very moderate word " shambles" based on Ethiopian selection nonsense at the Tokyo Games.!!

    • Looks like Kenya is taking a page from the EAF. The Nation reported on Saturday that Tokyo Olympic Marathon champion Peres Jepchirchir will be added to the women's WC marathon in place of Maureen Chepkemoi.

        Some GP organizer at the end of season should bring 100H/110H and 400H athletes together and rewrite 200H times and get bunch of World Bests and NRs.
        Straight and also on the curve to double the records.

              Should be done for the CG's and Pan Am's also.
              And, as I've said many times before, we should have an ANNUAL World Championships also, as the WC's are a "track & field" meet, not a 33 (not a typo) ring circus!!
              Does the World Series or March Madness have 30 other sports surrounding it??
              NO!
              So why should our sport??
              In fact, let's go a few steps further, and have an ANNUAL Euros, CG's, Pan Am's also!
              It would be similar to having annual Conference Champs for the Collegiates!

              GREAT move, Euros!!!

              • There is zero chance of the track & field part of the Commonwealth Games splitting from the rest of the Games. The Europeans are different as before this edition they have always been separate from any multi-sport competition.

                • Actually the concept of Commonwealth GAMES is that all sports are part of the GAMES. So no point in splitting them into isolated competitions.

                              • Dafne Schippers won the Netherlands 100 championship today but didn't look good, struggling to barely get up in 11.29.

                                The 400 semis were held toward deciding the 4 x 400 relays. Still difficult to believe the men overachieved to such severity to win Olympic silver last year. The showman Isayah Boers wasn't on that team. He came out in green hair today, did a tennis serve gag during introduction, and was fastest qualifier in a pedestrian 46.26. Bonevacia started slow in the same heat and was next at 46.59. I thought the 800 specialist Tony Van Diepen looked best of all at a smooth late 46.66. Ramsey Angela the Tokyo silver anchor has been struggling at his 400 hurdles but looked fine today taking it easy then basically stopping over the final meters at 47.00. Terrence Agard who was splitting 44s in Tokyo qualified for the final at 46.86. I'm not overly familiar with Maarten Emmaneel. He made the final at 46.96.

                                The surprise continues to be how much Jochem Dobber has declined from last year, when he was running low to mid 45s all season and made the Olympic semifinal. He ran the heats of both the men's and mixed relays in Tokyo plus earlier this year at indoor worlds in Belgrade. This year outdoors he's been consistently in the 47s with a best of 46.98. Today he tied up so badly down the stretch I thought he missed the final. But it turned out he advanced by three thousands of a second, at 47.563.

                                As expected the women's 400 is a mess toward the final spots on the relay pool. Lisanne de Witte is coming off a concussion and hadn't run since Belgrade. She decided late to enter this event and said she had no idea how fit she was. Lisanne ran unevenly but surged late to barely pull out her heat over Hanneke Oosterwegel, 53.85 to 53.87. The presumed frontrunner for the fourth spot Andrea Bouma ran mostly unopposed and won her heat in 53.91. In the final heat Laura de Witte held off the youngster Myrte van der Schoot, 54.38 to 54.48.

                                They must have told Eveline Saalberg she was safe, and to run the 200 only beginning tomorrow alongside Klaver and Bol. Saalberg was listed in the 400 entries but did not compete.
