    I wonder who dreamed up the flowers idea ... I'm pretty sure it was not a thing a couple of decades ago. Maybe the same official who is advocating eliminating the 200m or triple jump.

    All true ... but of the list above (20+ 2.31 jumps) I don't think you can make a case for merging any others. Walnut (site of the Mt SAC relays) is in the greater LA area, but not really close to the...

    I think we can count them as the same - Eberstadt is in Heilbronn. But I guess by that measure, Saint-Denis should be counted together with Paris, bringing it up to 32 and 6th place.

    High Jump capital

    Here are the sites of the most 2.31+ jumps in history (source: alltime-athletics.com). Surely the only event where a specialty meet tops the list:

    70 Eberstadt
    51 London
    45 Zürich...

    Wonderful to see James back on the track, and running a time that (for a first effort) puts him in the frame for Doha.

    I'm really pulling for him too. I think he has the right mental attitude and team behind him, but it's going to be really tough for him to come back to the same level. It's the difference between...

    No mention here yet of the fine 37.60 relay by the Brits. Their 100 PRs average 9.97. If the US (Rodgers/Gatlin/Lyles/Coleman), with an average PR of 9.81, could pass as efficiently, they would run...

    Rodgers-Lyles-Gatlin-Coleman. That will avoid two younger hotheads having to exchange. Lyles will be better on the backstretch that the curve but Gatlin can do either.

    Wilson always looks like that, as does Muir. IMO, Wilson has mastered the art of not looking distressed, doesn't mean she can go a lot faster. Having said that, I hope she breaks her AR this year.

    I think SRR is ok, maybe a 6 out of 10 as a commentator. She does have insights about the sprints and can articulate them. Ato on the other hand is at least a 9 out of 10, insightful and super...

    Usually I would agree, but note that WVN's 31.03 en route to his WR is the #4 performance of all time. His WR of 30.81 is only 0.22 faster. IMO, SMU is in 48-high form and still a very long way from...
