    Bolt's last year...and my last year as a track fan, it's been fun

    I posted on my blog which Meet Records might fall.
    I gave 3 levels of potential, labeled A, B, and C.
    A was 75 to 100% chance, B was 25 to 74% chance, with C being 0 to 24% chance.
    I offered a few names as to who could break the MR.
    Also told which US athletes could challenge the HSR.

    But there's two events which are confusing.
    Teferi of Ethiopia, with her 8:41 PR, had been listed in the 3000.
    But now she's only listed in the 1500.

    However, that makes THREE Ethiopians in the 1500.
    Don't the rules limit each nation to TWO athletes per event??
    So what happens to that 3rd Ethiopian in the 1500?

      Once again, great job designing that live-results page. Who gives a rats ass about that live blog, but of course, thats right there in the middle, right beside the equally important records in session. As for the only things that is actually important, actual results, those are on the bottom of the page so you have to scroll down for them. At least make the live blog and records collapsable, so they dont waste all that space.

            No, he was not injured.
            he would be running 100 and 200 this week...
            But he was backing from injury several months ago, perhaps so he only runs 200 finally...

            anybody know anything?

                1.94 is certainly a solid effort for a heptathlete! Would likely win a medal in the individual event (although the best junior HJer is off at Comm Games)

                  The entries are limited to three per country. The number of people who may actually compete is two. If you look at the entry lists, you'll see the US entered 3 athletes in a lot of events (though not in this one; I presume the no. 3 American hasn't achieved the IAAF qualifying standard).

                      Not finished. Dec SPers are still throwing metal balls around in earnest

                        And a PB for Kendal Williams.

                          Are Kendal and Kendell Williams related or is it just a coincidence?

                            Thanks, but I already knew about the entries vs competitors thing.
                            That still doesn't tell me what happens to the 3rd Ethiopian in the 1500.
                            Unless, that is, one of them doesn't have a Q time, as you stated.
                            (One of them, for whatever reason, will NOT be running the 1500!!)
                            Also, why wouldn't Teferi go for the easy win in the 3000?

                              She doesn't get to run. How complicated is that?

                              Why wouldn't she go for the 1500/3000 double? The heats of the 1500 don't come until the day after the 3000, so it's perfectly feasible to do both events.
