    It doesn't suggest sub-46 flat speed to me. In fact, he set a 400 PB just a few days ago and it's 47.51.

    Curious, what is the pecking order so to speak for USATF? I know the Goodwill isn't around anymore, but the PanAm and a few other sundry competitions are.

    Super performance from Bakulin to win the 20km walk in 1.20 :shock:

    Vania Stambolova almost back to her best in the 400m hurdles 55.14 to win.

    Did Stambolova actually have to return her European Gold, or was she caught too long after that "victory"?

    Note that Graduate students are eligible for this meet although there may be an upper age limit (25 or 30?).

    Think this championship has flown under the radar thus far, but may throw up a few good results prior to Berlin.

    Results: http://results.ub2009.org/results/ENG/Z ... XXXENG.htm

    Today is only the second day of competition so only a couple of finals have been decided.

    The major highlight so far was South African Viljoen Sunnette throwing 65.43m in the javelin heats, adding a couple of meters to her previous PB.

    No big name casualties so far, with Nelson Evora sailing into the TJ final, while world Champion Betty Heidler, Olympic finalist Martina Hrasnova, top Belarussian Smaliachkova, Silvia Salis of Italy, 2007 World 6th placer Eileen O' Keefe, Kathrin Klaas and the Moldovan Marghiev sisters qualifying for a competitive Hammer final.

    No British team due to conflicts with other championships and the usual scant entry from the U.S after a long NCAA season.
