        Borlée stays because IAAF rules say "wherever possible" an athlete from the host nation should be included in each event. It's good for the ticket-buying public.

            Besides who do you replace her with, Lauryn Williams maybe, but she'd take someone else's lane.

            Should be a good race. Surprised to some of the injured folks taking a chance and running.

                Sherone looked great in Padova, will be interesting to see how she goes here against better competition.

                  DOn't want to turn this into a 'troll' thread. But I'm sure you have a good idea of the ladies I'm talking about. We had a spirit debate not to long ago about three women and their injuries and how it played a part in decisions made a WC.

                  Anyway I hope to see a good race none the less.

                    Common sense and good business practices would say it even if the IAAF rules did not.

                      That's true enough; what the IAAF regulation does is remove the onus from a beleaguered meet promoter who has to explain to Agent X why his 9.9 guy isn't getting a lane and a 10.1 one is. Now he can say "sorry; out of my hands."

                        I hope everyone comes here to really run. I can see 5 sub-11's here at least if everyone comes to run and is rested and fir enough.

                          History suggests that sub-11s aren't all that easy to come by in Brussels (top-20 list from their site, with places other than 1st added by me):

                            Dang!
                            Is it that the track is soft or are the conditions usually... not ideal?

                              It's a meet that happens late in the European summer and in a city that isn't all that far from the sea. There's a reason for lots of 10K records there, and weather that's good for that isn't normally conducive to fast dashing.

                              The outlook for this year (weatherunderground.com):

                              <<Friday Night
                              Chance of Rain. Partly Cloudy. Low: 50 °F . Wind WSW 15 mph . Chance of precipitation 30% (water equivalent of 0.05 in).>>

                              Projected high for the day is 66 (19C).
