      I believe that's what they've been doing all year when the performance is the first of the year for the athlete in that event. In the early DL meets, there were many SBs shown.

        Alan's saying it's weird to show it as SB rather than PB, when he didn't have either before.

          Thanks. Appears to be mismarked as Day 2 in my Directv Program Guide, so my auto record did not think it was something new.

            Both Naser and Seyni withdrew from the 400m. Anybody found out why for either?

              The commentator mentioned visa issues for Naser, but didn't say anything about Seyni.

                You're right. I missed that. :-(

                  Amina Seyni is at home in Niamey for the Tournoi de la Solidarité, a tournament between Niger, Togo, Mali, Burkina Faso and Bénin.

                    A big deal for her federation, f'sure, but they have a WC medalist lock and perhaps getting her some more high-level comp experience (she is relatively new at the top) would be a better use of her time.

                      Could you argue that Warholm's race is closer to, if not under, 47 seconds? He hit hurdle 5 and was sloppy over hurdle 10.

                        He's physically in sub-47 shape, but that doesn't mean he has or will have the skill and timing to smoothly clear all hurdles while moving at that speed.

                          Upon further review, I see that tomorrow's meet is on Olympic Channel at 4 PM, Pacific, while today's is on Tuesday at 9 PM, Pacific. Go figure.

                          What I meant in that post about D Williams is that being the points leader has no value; even if an athlete barely squeaks into the final, he/she can win the diamond (and the money, and the WC).

                          BTW, I watched the M 5000 on the replay; the feed starts when they've run about 1600 meters. Rhonex Kipruto kept telling Kiptarus, the 2nd pacer, to go faster, finally just passing him. He wanted a faster pace, and he needed it, because he apparently cannot finish like Gebrhiwet, et al.

                          Gebrhiwet, BTW, is looking better than ever. According to his official birth date, he is still only 25; he won the 2013 U20 world cross title. Interestingly, he has broken 13 eight times, and didn't win any of them -- 5 2nds and 3 3rds. Today was his fastest-ever win at 5000.
                          Cheers,

                            Somehow I have managed to miss watching Warholm run up to this point. He's my new fave. From step one he seems to be overstriding, literally stretching to his maximum leg extension, almost as if he's triple-jumping every step. And the arm swing! I love it!

                              That anchor leg was a two-fold message to no one except her teammate Elaine Thompson: 1.) you can't have my anchor in the relay and 2.) my top end speed is ready.

                                The record was Marius Bakken's 13:06.39
