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.
#4 on the world all-time list (#5 performance), behind Ngeny (2x), Coe and Cram.
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...

Tilastopaja has 39 results for her from this year, not yet including this 22.20. (For comparison, McGrone and Tarmoh both had 13; Whitney had 16; Bryant had 34.) It's possible those statistics are...

I felt Blankenship went out too fast as it was and paid for it. Being the early leader would have been fine if he'd slowed the race down enough, but he didn't; he lost too much energy leading to...
Top results from event carnivals...

1. Inga Linna 68.25 PB

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.
True, and it's a new outdoor NYR as well. But the WOW! factor for a 416 jump is not there after Murto and Lampela jumped 440 and 432 indoors. I know conditions can be trickier outdoors... but they...
Highlights from the Paavo Nurmi Games in Turku:
1. Tero Pitkämäki 89.09
2. Ihab Abdelrahman EGY 85.50
3. Teemu Wirkkala 84.39
4. Antti Ruuskanen 84.32
5. Ari Mannio 83.83
OK, nobody's biting...
The other Stanford champion in 1928 was Emerson ("Bud") Spencer in the 4x400 relay (in which the United States set a new world record, as DoubleRBar indicated). Spencer was...
The Finnish team had a fairly average performance at the European Team Championships and was expectedly relegated.
The top highlight was Simo Lipsanen (born Sep '95) placing third in men's triple...
Correct, the other Stanford champion wore sunglasses. Extra points if you can name the reason why.
Might be the first time ever I was actually helped by an "attended the same school/university as X" clue.
Follow-up question: which other Stanford athlete won gold at the 1928 Olympics, and which...
Bob King? Went to Stanford like Mathias.

Yes, it's starting to look as if you were right. Germany and Russia are down even more than Poland, though; probably not too surprising the top teams should drop points, since they have many points...

Russia's women are bleeding points.
06-20-2015, 02:29 PM
Poland are now 2 points down on the formchart; France 2.5 points down; Germany 4 points down. (Russia are 15 points down but still projected to win.)
06-20-2015, 12:31 PM
We are two events in, and Poland is 3 points up on the formchart, more than any other team.
Of course, it's too early to say ;-)
Goodwin is now marked as "accepted/declared", with "NM" as his qualifying mark.
USATF.org does show separate MRs for the Trials... see here.
As for why some OT meeting records double as NC meeting records... because some OTs have doubled as NCs?
In any case, to make you...

So far, nine Finnish athletes have been selected (Pitkämäki and Ruuskanen in mJT, Kinnunen, Partanen and Ojala in m50kW, Mäkelä in wTJ, Kämäräinen in wDT, Hyryläinen in wMar and Manninen in mMar).

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.
