  • Berlin ISTAF

    Not a DL, but a good meet with history. The fields are mostly B+, but the m1500 seems to have all the usual suspects, incl. T Cher.
    Rest of start lists.

    https://www.istaf.de/en/0/starterliste.html

    On NBC Gold starting at 10am East Coast.

    They could have made this a 3rd DL meet, and staggered the events out over all 3, with a few special events.

      Methinks they should have the pacemaker try for a high-1:50.xx, if Cheruiyot is prepared to follow him. We're overdue for a 3:27.xx. Or faster. >:-)

        I remember the Berlin organizers were not interested in their meet being a part of the DL when it was launched. The reason given was they wanted to have a choice on what events to have on the program.

                    yeah, being forced to give out significant prize money in an event you don't want and that leaving you with no money to give to one you did want isn't the best business model.

                    So what's more important, the business model, or trying to create "parity" for athletes in all events?

                    Not an easy-to-answer question

                      T&F retro-purists like the current model, because without it, some events would hardly ever be presented. Color me out-of-touch-with-economic-reality, but I want to keep all the events we have.

                        Good mile for Marta Pen Freitas (POR). Her 1500 best is 4:03.99 (converted equiv 4:23.50), so this 4:22.45 is a very good mark -- her best among all her mile/1500s.

                        Also Efraimson's 4:24.82 PB (= 4:05.20), compared to her best 1500s, is a solid mark. She has run two better - 4:03.39 (2014) and 4:04.75 (2017), I think.

                          IAAF is currently splitting the difference in a very IAAF way, not having either a good business model or parity for athletes in all events.

                            This meet was on the Olympic channel today. Will likely be replayed at some point.

                              The men's discus featured the farewell appearance for Robert Harting. As might be expected, the Berlin crowd made it very special for the retiring 2012 OG Champ (and three-time World Champ). He took 2nd behind his brother.
