    There haven't been any meets of this type in Helsinki since the World Games/Helsinki Grand Prix went under. If it didn't work then, it wouldn't work now either.

    Not sure I'd rate the m800 or the w400H as likely. Possible, certainly.

    2:54.29... yes, a longshot, but I'd still consider that more likely than the men's 5000. A team with Norman, Kerley and...

    More Finnish invites are trickling in too; Elmo Lakka got a spot in the 110mH, and Sara Kuivisto was added in the 800 (she already had an invite in the 1500).

    Feels like historically, men's 800 is almost always a hot mess while the women's 800 can be more predictable. This year they're both messes.

    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).
