        @tamabi: You got a couple of things wrong, Holzdeppe already ended his season and won't be in Berlin and this: "m3000St Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad, Homiyu Tesfaye." should read m1500.

          @norunner Thank you! My German is spotty at best... I edited it.

            It's also the final of the IAAF HT Challenge. Should be a good battle between Włodarczyk and Heidler for the overall win. Włodarczyk has to win by at least 1.40... which happens to be exactly the distance that separated them in Warsaw on Saturday.
            On the men's side, Pars is very close to the overall title. Fajdek would need another NR to have a chance at overtaking him.

              Since we are discussing German athletes, I was just wondering whether someone can remind me of Silke Spiegelburg's status. She has been MIA for a while and I don't recall if she's injured or what.

                I don't understand (or know the rules of) this "HT Challenge".
                Is the winner decided by average distance, or by number of wins?
                Sounds like it's based on distance, if W has to win by 1.40!

                  It's based on the sum of 3 best results achieved by each athlete within the Challenge. Same rule as the Combined Events Challenge.

                      Hope they will have a live feed. Can't find any news on it as yet but will post when I do.

                          Unfortunately this year has been the weakest I can remember in the WPV.
                          Isinbayeva skipping the season (and so Feofanova and Bleasdale), Rogowska in terrible shape, Spiegelbulg and Strutz injured (Strutz never approached her 2011 shape again), Suhr and Silva very far from their best. There are some good second tiers, but the best one are all struggling.

                            German channel ARD will be broadcasting from 3.10pm to 5.45pm local time and they will provide a livestream too, which however will probably be restricted to german IPs. So anyone who wants to watch it, get hola unblocker or something similar.

                              Start lists are now up on the ISTAF site. Good fields in general, with top germans in.
                              The field events are stronger than the track ones, even if some good names are there like Aman vs Kczczot and others in the 800m or Arzamasava in the W800.
