      I don't know the selection process... does Ella Nelson have to run a qualifying time to be included, or do the selectors use their discretion?

          Roughly - a winner of the trials with an A or B qualifier gets selected. A 2nd place with a qualifier previously (or in the trials) is also an auto-nomination. Others can be selected but team quota (including AWD events) will come into play.

          Nelson has that 23.00 that I saw her run a year ago in Canberra but little since.

          I can see a fair few appeals coming up after the team is announced.

                re Brittany McGowan: Am I correct that this is ~1 second PB (going back to 2014, maybe), and thus her first time under 2:01? If so, that's a meaningful step forward for her, and puts her realistically close to sub-2:00. I understand that doesn't make her a world-beater, but it's a significant step forward, and near to a significant threshold of performance.

                    I saw on the IAAF story that the 5000m was surprisingly fast given the weather (and the fact that all the top guys had A marks). So how warm and humid was it and how much faster might it have been with good weather?

                      The Gold Coast is a lengthy conurbation close to the coastline. There are two weather stations - one at the north and one at the south end. The stadium is roughly in the middle of the two. The data for last Thursday is no longer easily available, so I have attached an image of the conditions the following day, which I believer was the same. Data is from the northern station with the south slightly warmer but with only 90% humidity. Start time was 8:15 pm.

                        That is relatively unusual with the Relative humidity at 100% - Dew Point and Air Temperatures the same and with no precipitation. That is pretty warm conditions for a fast 5000 in a championship race.

                          Raelene's 22.74 WJR in the final had a 2.0 tailwind at massive altitude, so adjusts to 23.07. Days's 22.93 -1.7 at sea level corrects to 22.77, so appears considerably better in real terms.

                            It's not your average Euro 5k weather for sure but is not uncommon at this time of year. If anything the Thursday might have been a bit hotter than the Friday data I posted given the comparative temps at 3pm.

                              Great run and she looks to be coming along well. Who coaches her?

                              I've not been to that stadium but the wind reading is interesting as if you get -1.7 on the straight, athletes might be benefit across the bend, with PBs for the first three or more. Reminds me of the 22.33 with a -2.6 MGT had at 1995 Nationals in the 200m.

                              Mens 200m ran with a similar headwind and SB and PBs in the field.
