    26mi325 asked, "Did she [Maggie Vessey] trip badly on the backstraight?

    mid distance fan replied, "Vessey was spiked about +500m into race. You can see in video where she jumps to inside and drops back."

    I'd like to view the incident, but NBC-TV did not show any of the Brussels w800m. Can anyone point to a website with archived video of the race?

    Of note, Ms. Vessey seems to have recovered from Brussels spiking because she subsequently won the DecaNation 800m this week at Paris -- her fourth victory in pre-WAF races.

    Whoops! Forgot about that five-meet limit.

    The Diamond League's no-limit scoring will be easier on thick-skulled types like me.

    WAT Scoring Update - Source: IAAF
    1. Jemma Simpson, GBR (5 meets) 64 points
    2. Maggie Vessey, USA (5) 62
    3. Elisa Cusma Piccione, ITA (5) 56
    4. Mayte Martínez, ESP (5) 52
    4. Mariya Savinova, RUS (5) 52
    6. Jennifer Meadows, GBR (5) 51
    7. Anna Willard, USA (3) 50
    8. Marilyn Okoro, GBR (5) 49

    JF comment: WAT Standings are based on the best 5 scores from placing in designated meets. A sixth score is not added to previous five scores, but it can replace a lower score from a previous meet.

    Bottom line: Willard has qualified for 800m World Athletics Final via only three races and now must consider, having already qualified for 1500m, whether or not to double next weekend at Thessaloniki.

    She usually runs Rieti, not always Brussels.

    Maggie, when Flotrack comes to you for an interview just say "no comment".

    New standings, so far as I can tell...
    1. Jemma Simpson GBR 55 + 16 = 71
    2. Maggie Vessey USA 62 + 0 = 62
    3. Elisa Cusma Piccione ITA 48 + 12 = 60
    4. Mayte Martínez ESP 48 + 10 = 58
    5. Mariya Savinova RUS 4 38 + 14 = 52
    6. Jennifer Meadows GBR 51
    6. Marilyn Okoro GBR 49 + 2 = 51
    ----------------------------------
    8. Anna Willard USA 30 + 20 = 50

    [i]If Vessey had run a bit faster and displaced some Brussels rivals that might have helped Willard. But IAAF could select Willard, who tends to win her few 800m races. She's also in the WAF 1500m and may not wish to double -- although all placers in WAF 800 and 1500 earn $.

    At this point it's going to be interesting to see if Vessey can actaully run herself out of a spot in the World Rankings.
