    The flipside is that Kipyegon/Cherono probably can't run the same kind of times as Ayana/Dibaba, but they have pretty good kicks. Sitting back and not going for the record could also backfire.

    I count 23 consecutive years under 3:50 for García. Would be amazing if he added to that.

    I like the prediction of 1 gold for Finland, but that also seems pretty optimistic. No Walcott?

    The rest of the world isn't nearly as soft in the m110H as the w100H. Parchment and Shubenkov are both tried and tested big meet runners; Shubenkov beat Martinot-Lagarde by 0.20 at the Euro Team...

    The top four running 12.4x (+1.9) instead of 12.5x (-0.1) might have looked better, but it would have been illusory. Nelvis did disappoint a bit in the final; for a moment there I thought she was out.

    Correct, the other Stanford champion wore sunglasses. Extra points if you can name the reason why.

    Bridge and chess have both been part of multi-game events like the World Mind Sports Games, but in chess at least they're a complete non-factor.
