    True.

    The Stockholm meet had the feel of a regular summer DL meet. I was pinching myself to make sure that I wasn't dreaming.

    Screen-in-screen is something that we rarely see. The field events are so much better when you can keep up with the action.

    Hehe, leave it to us Swedes to make the DL broadcasts then. This was a Swedish production and all of our hopefuls are basically in the field events so they always get as much attention as the track. We love our jumps.

    Though like you say, it's not hard to combine the two, it all comes down to how much you care. You don't need to show every little second of a middle & long distance run(at least not a GP event), you certainly don't need extensive presentations, and you can also use screen-in-screen to show a jump or throw LIVE while the track event is ongoing. What the DL(and many other GPs) are doing is treating the field events as second class athletics, basically everything you get shown are taped attempts in between the track events. Unless something very special is happening. It's a shame.

    Watching the race I'd say Dibaba could have lost that second (the one which prevented her from getting Masterkova's record) in the very first part of the race. Her reaction to the gun wasn't great and she wasted a bit of time running the bend outside first lane.

    In today's Sacramento Bee, NOT A PEEP about the world records!!!

    Dibaba was paced for the first almost four laps by 800 specialist Joanna Jozwik, who recently ran very close to 2:00 indoors. The times, taken at the finish line, so the first split is 209 meters, were:

    31.73
    63.59 (31.86)
    1:34.98 (31.39)
    2:06.69 (31.71)
    2:38.84 (32.15)
    3:10.77 (31.93)
    3:42.31 (31.54)
    4:13.31 (31.00)

    That's great pace judgment, no? She was timed in 3:56.46 at 1500, about a second behind her own WR for that distance. Her mile time converts to roughly 3:54.6 per the "8-percent rule".

    In the 1000 WR, pacemaker Bram Som took them through took them through in 25.42, 52.08 (26.66), then Souleiman took over and put up 1:19.44 (27.36), 1:46.97 (27.53) splits before finishing with 27.23.

    BeIN did show the DL live last year. And a bunch of other meets. Great stuff.
    Did they use to show also live coverage of the field events? Because DL meeting are often being shown with almost no field events and almost only running events with LONG presentations of the athletes, replays and so on. Very often it happens you overhear a huge clap for someone that it's shown live only minutes later.

    Yes, but the indoor/outdoor differential is no where near five seconds. Of course, she has learned not to have the indoor her peak season, although I would guess that last year it was still too much of a peak in that she was no longer at her peak at the Worlds.
