    Have to echo this. Embarrassing to see the top African in the wHT throw 59m and 'beat' women who threw 70m, 68m & 62m. Utter farce. Also disadvantes Europe who traditionally (not so today however...)...

    Not many people are taking the entire event seriously. Alas, it's called the continental cup, the clue is really in the title.

    Who is "we"?

    This is a competition to establish the best *team*. You acknowledge outer lanes are a disadvantage. Why should continents with fewer world class athletes be further disadvanted? A...

    I doubt he'll switch. His brother also vaulted for Sweden. Competition to make teams is pretty low, and he is already the poster boy for Swedish Athletics, and before long he will be for Swedish...

    Really?

    He went 19.99, 19.92, 19.90 is his last three diamond league races, beaten only by Lyles. He then went to Euros and ran 19.76, winning the fastest Euros final ever for places down to 6th...

    The 200 is my event to watch heading towards 2020. Lyles is the obvious watch, and I get the excitement about Norman over 200m, but I see a lot to get excited about abroad too.

    Prescod's final 30m is ridiculous. Not a fan of his defensiveness when asked about his start though.

    DAS is not the best example. Her biggest hurdle was having injuries every year since her 2015 breakthrough. Easy to forget she ran 22.07 as a teenager before two seasons with injuries.

    I can't see SAFP getting lane 1 in Britain. She, like most Jamaican sprinters, is very popular here. The Americans will get 1 and 8 I think.

    37.80 for GB without Prescod/Mitchell-Blake was impressive. Can see that team going...

    We'll see. I would not expect Thiam near 59m in the Jav again, the wind that day in Gotzis was sending the javelin's flying. Thiam also look 'off'. Way off her best in three of four events so far....

    Is it me, or does Warholm's hurdling look a bit borderline? Almost goes around the hurdle with his lead leg.
