    In Poland we got that at OG, but not at WC, at least not in past editions until now.

    The US athletes, with a few exceptions (like Tori Bowie) were not able to sandbag, since they had to peak at least to some extent to make the team.

    I'd say after the last few competitions Bukowiecki looks quite likely to make the podium.

    I predict that with the meet being held after the season proper, making any predictions is going to be harder than usual. Some people will mispeak, some who didn't look great during the season were...

    I looked it it up now in the official IAAF results book. Yes, the max temperature was between 25 and 29 on days 1-6, but it dropped to 18-19 on the final 3 days.

    It looks like 70 will be the final count. From what I gather, the Eberstadt meet did not take place this year and from 2020 the meet will be moved to Heilbronn.

    I believe that's a largely American phenomenon. I've never come across a European fan who would follow only men's T&F.

    That could very well be. After last season and most of this year I'd sort of given up on Kopron, but it looks like she's back. Having said that, I'm still not sure which of the Polish female HTers I...

    Yeah, but wouldn't the federation still need to put up money for travel before they get reimbursed? I'm not sure the organizers are directly involved in booking air tickets for all 200+ teams.
