  • Zurich startlists forming...

    http://www.weltklassezuerich.ch/en/meeting.html

    Looks like it really will be a mini-Olympics again. Surprisingly, no women's distance races over 800m, though there is a men's 1500, 5000 and steeple.

    The Wariners, Richardses, and Felixes of the world have added incentive. The Merritts, Ohuruogus and VCBs, not so much (exc. that paltry $$$ thing).

      I hope they:d prefer it in the €uro sort of way ;-) -- may go a little further.

        Great looking list, can't wait.

        I think there are no w5000 in Zürich since they are scheduled in Brussels and Stuttgart, three races within two weeks would be too much.

          There's also a 3000m race in Gateshead, which features Dibaba and a brace of top Kenyans.

            I almost forgot about Gateshead, that makes it 5 quality meets in the next 20 days before the season draws to a close. Let's just hope there aren't too many withdrawls in any of the meets. :wink:

              Although the word 'quality' might be a bit of a stretch when you see some of the fields :wink:

                This should be interesting: Yego is moving up from the 800 to try his hand at the 1500 in Zurich. Jamal in the 800...

                  And Nancy Lagat in the 800m in Zurich, and Choge and Lagat (and Baddeley) in the 1000m in Gateshead.

                    Well, I'd say for a non GL or SGP meet, Gateshead has a lot of very good events compared to only a few that don't meet those high standards.

                    Here is the start list btw: http://www.ukathletics.net/EasysiteWeb/ ... attachment

                      Unfortunately I'm afraid I'll cannot watch it live on TV this year...

                        Also the IAAF fantasy game has Laussanne and Van Damme as both being Sep 2. Hope they realize their error......soon. :?

                          The sprints look to be fantastic. I would love to see Churandy Martina run very well in this meet.

                            Good time for redemption for: Lolo Jones; Kallur (one hopefully); Wariner; Pitkamaki; Clement; Tsatoumas; Koech; Vlasic.

                            Often OG/WC Champs are a bit too "high" to repeat right away. Last year's WC's: Gay; Lagat; Kipruto; Liu; Clement; Walker; Evora; Kanter; Tikhon; Pitkamaki; Perry; Dietsch, all lost their next outings.

                              Nice to see that mens 100m sprinting has regained the esteem it once had. Two separate men's 100m races within 4 days and both are equally represented by expert sprinters. I counted at least 7 very fast men in peak competitive form for this season. Its now heavy weight boxing's turn to do the same.
