        Hurske's drop from 13.10 to 13.04 jumps her one place on the all-time list over Aidanpää. Will there be three under 13 this year?

        1. Neziri 12,81
        2. Korte 12,93
        3. Hurske 13,04
        4. Aidanpää 13,08
        5. Bogdanoff 13,12

        • The Finns are battling for the honour of 2nd strongest nation in the W 100H!

          Raitanen's Steeple PB makes that 6 Europeans with new PBs under 8:22 in the last 5 days. Baby steps but encouraging!

          Good to see Ella Junnila continuing to improve. I remember watching one of the Finnish meetings last year where she set 3 PBs improving from 1.86 to 1.92!

            194 NR for Ella Junnila in the wHJ! Junnila's mother (Ringa Ropo) still holds the long jump NR... can't be too common, mother and daughter holding NRs simultaneously.
            here.
            That sounds like a challenge! Of course Scotland is not an IAAF member or sovereign nation in its own right, but Liz McColgan still holds the Scottish 10000 and Marathon records while her daughter Eilish holds the 3000S/C record.

            • On a semi-related note, didn't Koji Murofushi claim the Japanese hammer record from his father Shigenobu?

              • 85.15 for Antti Ruuskanen in his season opener in Raasepori. Zhao Qinggang (CHN) second with 83.84.

                • Highlights from Jyväskylä:

                  wHT:
                  1. Krista Tervo 70.18 NR

                  Finally!

                  w100H:
                  1. Klaudia Siciarz POL 12.77w (+2.3; 12.87/+0.8 PB in heats)
                  2. Nooralotta Neziri 12.82w (12.90 SB in heats)
                  3. Reetta Hurske 12.86w
                  4. Annimari Korte 12.90w
                  6. Maria Huntington 13.22w (13.11 PB in heats; 6053 heptathlon earlier this year)

                  Matilda Bogdanoff seemed on pace for a really fast time in the heats until she crashed badly, I hope she's okay.

                  w100:
                  1. Hanna-Maari Latvala 11.45 SB (+0,5)
                  2. Lotta Kemppinen 11.50 PB
                  3. Anniina Kortetmaa 11.59 PB

                  mHT:
                  1. Myhaylo Kokhan UKR 75.42
                  2. Nick Miller GBR 75.33
                  3. Dilshod Nazarov TJK 74.81

                    Once Siciarz learns how to start properly, she'll be great. As of now, she may get a good one once every 10 races. With a decent start in the final today, she would have been sub-12.7. Granted, it would still be wind-aided, but not by much. And at her height, tailwind probably doesn't help much, if at all.

                      Well, I should have added "wind legal" to my original question!

                      Still, those times with that wind shows that they should be able to do it wind legal as well and probably more than once.

                      If that happens, it actually seems to put Finland in elite company because there only seems to be 6-8 countries with multiple athletes under 13 in the same season.

                      I found this surprising but countries that I though for sure would have done it had great hurdlers whose careers don't overlap, or if they did, there's only 2 of them, with a big gulf to third.

                      Unfortunately, I can't prove it at the moment because the IAAF list stops at 12.95, so there's probably a few more that might squeeze into that last .05s.

                        The UK has had 14 women under 13 but many of those only barely or on only 1 or 2 occasions. I think the only time we had 2 regularly under 13 in the same season was the Ofili sisters about 4 years ago.

                              • At La Chaux-de-Fonds another sub-13 for Reetta Hurske BUT ... ... another illegal wind!

                                (+3.1m/s)
                                1 Luminosa Bogliolo (ITA) 12.76w
                                ...
                                4 Nooralotta Neziri 12.84w
                                5 Reetta Hurske 12.86w

                                Poor lass. It seems like the wind follows her everywhere in her quest to become Finland's 3rd sub-13 athlete.

                                If you want to cool down in the hot weather just go and stand behind Reetta Hurske! There's bound to be a breeze.
