    Good day for the Aussies at the Youth Olympics with a gold and two silvers. Miers especially impressive in the HJ with an 8cm improvement over his PB.

    As the male commentator said, perhaps he could follow in the footsteps of previous silver-medallist Brandon Starc (who made a 9cm improvement in Singapore).

    The female commentator was Jane Flemming too.

    That is about where he belongs - it is hard to tell who is best this year at this point. Wisconsin has five major meets in a row as do many other top teams (Wisc Invite, PreNats, Conference, Regionals, and NCAAs). You cannot be going too hard this early.

    Despite not being in T&FNews Top 10 (or Others to Watch) Morgan McDonald won the big Nuttycomb Invitational at Wisconsin Friday in his first XC race in almost two years (when finishing seventh at NCAA 2016). His teammate Ollie Hoare slipped a bit back the last kilo and finished 13th. It is the biggest invite of the NCAA season.

    No, but those 2 aren't currently competing. For the year Starc should be ranked third after those 2 guys.

    The DL Final win helps his case. Never beat top 2 though...

    At the beginning of this year, who would have even predicted he would achieve a PB, let alone win Comm Games gold, win DL events, equal Tim Forsysth's NR and - now guaranteed - score a T&FN Top Ten World Ranking?
    I liked that. He's good to watch. One of his attempts at 2.37 in Birmingham was not too bad either.
