    It appears that Daniela Roman has not been selected despite running 56.59 for the 400IH which is well under the B standard for Australia.

    Is it correct (fair) to assume she is paying the price for her meltdown in the 100H?

    Finally, a reason why Jess Peris was missing from the trials.

    Oh dear...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?
