    With the Shot Put on Thursday evening, is this the first athletics (even sporting?) event ever held at a fish market?

                Will anyone be competing in a fishnet? I hope not.

                        It will be interesting to see if Welteji starts gaining more confidence at 1500 and imposes herself at the end of these races when there are other Ethiopians in the field. She seemed almost hesitant to go past Tsegay last time until she basically had no choice.

                        This will be only the second steeplechase for Beatrice Chepkoech since Tokyo.

                        Klaver is in the field but in looking at the points standings it doesn't appear she has a viable route to the Diamond League final unless Miller-Uibo (or somebody else) skips that race. Klaver seems destined to finish 9th or 10th in points. She didn't get into enough races. This is only her second Diamond League start despite being prominent in the global championships this year. Bol is ahead of her with 8 points so that doesn't matter. Sophie Becker is one point ahead but is not in this field. The others Klaver is chasing are in the field. Mathematically the only clear path to 8th place is a Klaver victory combined with Kielbasinka finishing last. That would move Klaver to 12 points and Kielbasinka at 11. Lots of luck with that scenario. I've mentioned the head to head dominance of Kielbasinka above Klaver, now 6-1.

                        Early in this main card every year they have the women's 400 B final. Normally it is a national competition between Belgium and Netherlands, with four from each country and points allotted per placing. It is fun opportunity for those second tier athletes to briefly be in the spotlight at a major event. For whatever reason they didn't do it that way this year. Saalberg is the only entrant from the Netherlands. However, there are 5 Belgians including the two closing legs from the Munich relay that narrowly missed a medal. Camille Laus is in the field. I'm more interested in how Helena Ponette fares in her first race since the astounding 49 low on the third leg, surging Belgium into the lead. Ponette had never broke 54 until this year. They didn't even use her in the Brussels B final last year. She was getting ready for the Belgium U23 championships. This year she has dropped her personal best to 51.93.

                          athematically the only clear path to 8th place is a Klaver victory combined with Kielbasinka finishing last. That would move Klaver to 12 points and Kielbasinka at 11.
                          SMU isn't running in Zurich and wrapped up her season after NACAC, so Klaver should get the 8th qualifying place. Note SMU ran ten 400m's outdoors this year, her most ever.

                          Klaver could tie Kielbasinska if she came 2nd and the Pole last, but unlikely as you say. However, there is also the possibility of Klaver coming 8th and getting just 1 point, and then she would be tied with Sophie Becker on 5 pts. I'm not sure what they do in that instance - look who has competed in the most meetings, or go by the highest finishing position. In that scenario, if the latter, Becker would get in as she came 4th in Rabat compared to Klaver's 5th in Paris. However, I doubt Klaver would finish last here. At the very least I would expect her to beat McPherson, who she has beaten 3/4 this season, and their last 3 encounters in a row. I am hoping Klaver does ok here, despite obvious exhaustion, as it's virtually a home DL.

                              Made me look. Is there really a 400m guy named Belgian Tornadoes? How did he sneak up to world class level without me noticing?

                              Seriously, is that a local nickname for them?
