    That thing around Lasitskene's knee in Minsk was not something she normally jumps with, and made me wonder a bit at the time. Did she have that in Chorzˇw?

    Probably at least a 50-50 chance that someone with a 22+ SB gets eliminated in the qualifying!

    Though I suppose we could see more than 12 qualify. Are the auto-Q marks known yet?

    This year, though, I feel like there aren't many athletes who even look like locks. Most events have two or more top contenders.

    It's hard to see how Felix gets anywhere near the T&FN rankings this year, though. Next year is another matter.

    trackCanuck and 18.99s have been insinuating that in every single 400 discussion for months. It got old really quickly (which of course has no bearing on whether they're right or not).

    Not sure; Felix Sanchez had a good win streak too, and Warholm and Benjamin have both been very consistent this year with good race after good race.

    The Ethiopians are the pesky kickers. The Kenyans I can see pushing the pace, maybe even Cheptegei; but the Ethiopians?

    Interesting choices here; pick a safe captain with good MR chances, or go all-in with Warholm or Benjamin hoping for a WR but risking a loss?

    Transfers did get re-opened.

    I got 60 points for Chepkoech as captain, so did everybody else whose picks I looked at.

    Interested to see what happens in the women's javelin. The level isn't as good as in some other events, but perhaps exactly because of that it's wide open and totally unpredictable.

    While we don't know anything for sure, I see no more reason to doubt Cheptegei's form than anyone else's form. He's been okay on the circuit and tends to be solid at big meets.
