    Didn’t know that Powell. I thought there would be a successor to Pyrek and Rogowska too. Does Peinado train in Poland? Do any other non-Polish vaulters (of either gender)?

    FYI (off topic) the most...

    Powell, is it possible in Poland to be both military (in the sense you have described) and a student? Basically all the Ukrainian team here who were born between 1994 and 1996 (so not eligible for...

    Why these world rankings, which are not proven (yet) to really reflect athletes' true abilities in any way whatsoever, are being trialled as a method of selection for the Olympics, rather than the...

    And neither did Poland ;) yours was 23-25 August.

    Ukraine was 21-23 August, GBR 24-25 August too. BLR and Spain were a week later still.

    Have any Ukrainians been invited? Klymyuk (w400) seemed to be angry that she (and Melnyk) were not invited, when I saw the lists I saw that four “universality” athletes had knocked them out.

    What I find strange is that a lot of Turkish names, especially given names, seem to violate vowel harmony, where vowels of one type cannot be followed (after consonants!) by vowels of a different...

    I just hope Kendricks vaults 6.06 some time soon, and Harrison, Nelvis or another hurdler runs 7.67 or faster. Kallur is less American (morally) than Duplantis, too, as well as not representing the...

    Maybe this is a joke, but

    If Duplantis vaulted 6.06, or even 6.17 WR, at the Pre Classic, should it count as a Swedish national record?
