    I know many here don't care much about the walks, but I'd take 3:32:33 over 2:02:57 any day. 2:02:57 was awesome; 3:32:33 was a "did that really just happen?" moment.

    That's the same Andreev who was in the PV Oly final in '08, right?

    Beyond what AS listed:

    2-1 vs Ahouré
    2-0 vs Schippers
    3-0 vs Stewart

    In other words, she didn't race the other main contenders much. Incidentally, both Ahouré and Okagbare beat her clearly in...

    There's no way a 8:24 3000 runner is going to run 2 miles in 8:58, since 8:24 is 9:00.7 pace and the average speed goes down, not up, as the distances get longer.

    Any idea who'll be #1 in the T&FN rankings? Röhler's 12th place at the biggest meet of the year counts against him badly, and he has negative head-to-heads against both Ruuskanen and Pitkämäki....

    Zürich DL: mJT

    This is pretty much a winner-takes-all - if any of Abdelrahman, Pitkämäki, Veselý, Röhler or Ruuskanen wins they will also win the Diamond Race. If Yego wins here he takes the Diamond Race if...

    Nana Djimou - you're right, she should have been higher.

    As for the Russian walkers, all of them except Yargunkin are coached by Chegin... and Yargunkin is probably the weakest Russian.

    EC formcharts

    I think T&FN usually doesn't have formcharts for the European Championships, so here goes... men/women

    As you probably guessed, the main reason I went 12 deep rather than just 10 is that this way...

    True, but that was without Eilidh Child; adding her is easily worth 1.5 seconds I think. Their weaker legs will have to deliver if they want to win in Zürich, though.

    TBO is not the greatest relay runner of all time, though. I'm picking her to win the individual but I'd be surprised if she has the fastest split in the relay; of course, that's not saying UK...
