    Technically true, but wouldn't they need to be entered by the Russian federation anyway? Or do neutral athletes compete as individuals, and therefore need to enter themselves?

    But wouldn't the IAAF have already accepted invites on the premise that there will be only one Kenyan entrant?

    But the nominating period is now over. If that's the status as of today, they will be left with just one entrant.

    I don't have actual data. But I don't think that many countries send any government people to the WC (as opposed to, say, the federation chair who serves as the team manager).

    I doubt "most nations" are sending government delegations as large as the team itself.

    It was not the final. WC also count towards the Challenge (as well as the Combined Events Challenge).

    Not sure I would describe the Skolimowska Memorial as an obscure meet, even if the m400 didn't have a particularly strong field.

    I don't think she is, she just decided to end her season. Her main goal this year was the European U23s.

    Looking at the list of entrants and their SBs, I suspect it will be over 21. No. 12 on the list is 21.51, no. 16 is 21.18.

    20.90 may be what it will actually take to make the final.

    Levchenko looked great in Minsk. She may not have the upside to threaten Lasitskene at her best yet, but the point is Lasitskene isn't looking her best at the moment. It could be a question of...
