        I remember when ISTAF was a top tier meet. Golden League. What was the predecessor? Either way, much like Brussels or Stockholm or Rome.

          I think Grand Prix meets were the predecessor to the Golden League?

            Yes. That’s what I was thinking. Thanks!

                The somewhat complicated history of the IAAF Grand Prix - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IAAF_Grand_Prix

                At one point there was the Golden League, Super Grand Prix, Grand Prix I and Grand Prix II meetings which I suppose would correspond today to the Diamond League, Conti Tour Gold, Silver & Bronze meetings respectively.

                Looking down the list of meetings, there's a lot of meetings that have disappeared though, of course, new ones have sprung up in their place and already existing ones like the Luzern & Rovereto meetings have also taken a step up in designation/class.

                  Berlin was — with Zürich, Brussels & Oslo — a member of the Golden 4, which was so successful that Primo felt compelled to form the Golden League.

                    Among the meets that are gone, Cologne and Bern. (Some of us here attended both in '86.) The former in particular was top tier and filled a big stadium. It was such a good meet that one could see a WR in the heats of the 100h - if only the bus had arrived on time.

                      Nice and Koblenz are examples of meets that saw WRs in the '80s that are no more.

                          Nice work by the TV production for Berlin ... Not !

                          For the last 50m of the W 400, the clock/records graphic completely obscured the leader!

                          Val Allman wins the Discus by almost 5m with 70.06.

                            Allman 69.14 (226-10) in Round 3, and then 70.06 (229-10) in Round 6.
