    Lauren Wells ran a 300m flat race in Canberra on 18 August and set a new PB of 37.92, bettering her 38.20 on 14 January 2012 in Brisbane. This "race" was essentially a time trial as she won by 5 1/2 seconds...

    While a long way from Freemanesque, this is yet another PB to go with her 200m, 400m and 400mH earlier this year, showing she is in good form for WC, if selected.

    6.07 +0.8

    Didn't Pete Seeger sing "Where have all the 6.70s gone?"

    After a certain Tennessee hurdler gave up track for football in the late '60s, Seeger sang "Where has Richmond Flowers gone?"

    3 Aussies in M5000m in Zurich: McSweyn, Tiernan and Gregson (Only McSweyn 'earned' spot. Other two are invitees).
    Starc, Barber and Linden Hall also there. Hall to break Aussie W1500m record?

    Few Aussies in Rovereto tonight: http://www.usquercia.it/index.html
    MLJ Frayne
    WHJ McDermott
    WJT Little
    WSt Lacaze/Gregson
    Tiernan is listed in 5k, but I'm guessing might skip given Zurich call-up.

    I missed completely that Frayne also jumped 8.19 (+1.3) 10 days ago in Spain for his first jump in 12 months after the Continental Cup.

    This was a Doha distance qualifier, so it looks like he is in shape to get to the final in Doha and hopefully improve on his 7th in Rio OG.

    Frayne's five measured jumps in Europe this month all speak to a welcome consistency and hopefully a good base for Doha:

    Monachil (17 Aug) was 8.19A (1.3), 8.17wA (2.3), 8.16A (1.1), and three fouls
    Rovereto (27 Aug) was 8.11 (0.8), 7.94 (0.8), 2 fouls, 2 passes

    Eleanor Patterson improved her SB again to 1.90 in Holland yesterday: https://trackinsun.blogspot.com/2019...s-2882019.html

    1.94 is the Q for Doha, 1.92 is currently the rolldown q.

    Zurich results

    Stewart McSweyn didn't scare 13 minutes let alone Mottram's record as he finished 13th in 13:24.46.

    Ryan Gregson and Patrick Tiernan were on pacing duties so DNFed. While they weren't spot on targets, they did pretty well based on the Target / Actual comparison:

    1k- 2:35 / 2:35.27 (Gregson)
    2k- 5:11 / 5:13.38 (Gregson)
    3k- 7:47 / 7:51.35 (Tiernan)

    Brandon Starc finished 2nd in the MHJ with 2.30, an equal SB. Given the modest state of the event this year, it looks like he will make the final. He might even medal in Doha, if he can repeat his effective peaking from last year.

    Linden Hall 10th in the W1500 4:04.22, a SB.

    Kelsey-Lee Barber 2nd in the WJT with 64.74, her 5th best competiton ever. She struggled at the start but had a reasonable series once she got going:
    58.96
    52.76
    62.82
    64.74
    63.99
    63.23
