    AFAIK in Kenya the national championships and WCh Trials are two separate meets.

    Edit: it's confirmed by the story from the IAAF site. Only the 10000 and marathon teams have been selected so far.
    Thanks for the clarification. From EPelle's IAAF link:

    "The focus now shifts to the national trials for Berlin which will run in Nairobi on July 25."

      men's 4x4

      again as with the women 4x4, i'm wondering -- why do you think belgium won't have a say about the medals?

      whatever happen to the russians, which almost stole the silver in beijing?

        They are not completely without a chance, but they still only have 3 good runners. When they find a no. 4 who can at least go sub-46, things will look different.

                I'm surprised they chose Kovago over Harting, but other than that I wouldn't predict any German men to medal, either.

                  That's at what I was aiming, too. Tilastopaja gives us a 9-2 for Harting against Kovago and I see no reason at all for this surprising ranking.
                  Nevertheless I think it's possible that a second medal might materialize from Bayer, Mohr or Straub, Spank, Frank, Bartels, Behrenbruch or the men's sprint relay.

                    I'm tempted to pick Harting for silver. Seem to recall that in the pre-year wild prediction throwing contest many of us picked him for gold... Then again, the discus has produced surprises these last two years.

                    Unsurprisingly, as WC draws nearer, the predictions are gaining sanity. But no way will Kemboi lead Kenya to a steeple sweep... :?:

                      Yes, it is possible, but if I was to pick my top 3 right now, none of the above would be included. Harting would be... unless possibly Małachowski can show today he's capable of throwing big despite the injury.
