    Thanks for the highlight, Powell. I was in Budapest, and missed this. Savinova's 1.57,90 PB is her first outdoor sub-2. She's picked up outdoors right where she ended indoors (1.58,10 PB). With the exception of Torino, however, she hasn't gotten out of the house that often (six of her seven best marks have been achieved in Russia).

    Good return to form from Nazarova. It looked as though she was on her way out along with the rest of the old guard (Zykina, Antyukh etc.)

    Thankfully Stambalova seems to have plateaued in the mid-51 range and this is the second time she has been soundly beaten so hopefully we will see no performances on par with her 2006 level.

    Well the interesting thing about the 3 sub 51's is that firstly, 21 yr old Krivoshapka, the european indoor champ this winter, won in her first individual race outdoors (she ran a relay in the US) in a great 50.24. A brilliant PB and right up there on the world lists. She must be looking at sub 50 this summer and be considered a medal threat in Berlin at this stage.

    Secondly, Natalya Nazarova, now 30, finished third in 50.95, her fastest time since the Russian champs in 2007, and her fastest outside those champs since the Olympics in 2004.

    Thirdly, Guschina and Kapachinskaya ran the 200m instead, so when they finally all meet at the Russian Champs we're going to see a great battle to make the team.

    Is there any doubt it should? The Russians have regularly been fighting it out with the Americans over the last decade - usually losing, but it was generally close.

    Gomes won the LJ with her 6.94.

    Ostapchuk improved to 19.88 with her last throw. Austra Skujyte set a PB with 17.75 down in fifth place. She is apparently now a full time shot putter - she hasn't competed in any other events this year.

    Does anyone know what happened to Guliev and/or Kim? Both false starts or what?

    Ukhov and Rybakov both cleared 2.34 in the HJ competition.

    Naide Gomes is now leading with 6.94 before the 6th round.

    Women's SP is strong, too, with Nadezhda Ostapchuk and Anca Heltne both setting SBs (19.54 and 19.08, respectively).

    Results of the w 400m will be very interesting to note.

    Slow start for Tomasz Majewski - 19.42 and 20.30 so far, and he's in third place behind Pavel Sofin and Andrey Mikhnevich. I hope he comes through - it's one thing getting beaten by a top American every now and them, but he shouldn't be losing to Europeans.
    But he came closer to letting yet another European beat him...

    1. Mikhnevich (BLR) 21.02
    2. Sofin (RUS) 20.80 PB
    3. Majewski (POL) 20.48
    4. Fortes (POR) 20.43

    Edit: But TBH, these Europeans are throwing pretty well today. Mikhnevich just improved to 21.02.
