    Huge 34s PB from Jessica Hull in Berlin: 15.00.32 sees her move to #3 Aussie all-time (behind Willis and Wellings), and fastest by an Aussie since 2006. Also a Q for Doha if she wants to double.

    New Aussie record in rarely competed (by seniors) W2000mSt by Genevieve Gregson too: 6:09.48 bettering her previous best of 6:16.86 from 2015.

    A lot of runners got stuck behind a gal that got an early hurdle off, running into it with her hips and interfering with about 5 runners, two of whom came to a complete stop and threw a leg over the hurdle eventually. The winning time of 5:52 is just above the WR pace for the 3000SC and might be inferior to the 2000m split.

    Slightly less auspicious results than ISTAF at the GalÓ dei Castelli, Bellinzona, SUI on 1 September.

    12. HUNTER Rorey 93 AUS 3:43.09

    Hunter set his PB of 3:37.63, seven weeks ago in Italy and, in his Euro campaign, has run under 3:40 three times and over that time three times, with yesterday's run the slowest out of those six.

    6.PARNOVA Elizaveta 94 AUS 4.41

    That was Parnova's first competition in Europe after her 4.60m PB at Oceania champs in Townsville back in June.

    Parnova had a more distinguished field to compete against than Hunter:

    1. NAGEOTTE Katie 91 USA 4.77
    2. MORRIS Sandi 92 USA 4.70
    3. GROVE Emily 93 USA 4.63
    4. SILVA Yarisley 87 CUB 4.56
    5. XU Huiqin 93 CHN 4.56

    Coming up in Zagreb on 3 September:

    Peter Bol
    in the 800m B race. Bol only ran a 1:46.12 in the Domestic season and has run 8 times in Europe since 30 May for a SB of 1:45.56 in Barcelona 6 weeks ago.

    Henry Frayne

    competes again in the MLJ after a couple of consistent, good quality competitions in recent weeks that were only 15cm off his 2018 PB of 8.34.

    He will be up against the RSA triumvirate of Visser, Manyonga and Samaai, so if he can beat one of those, his final chances in Doha will be strengthened.

    Ben Buckingham

    will set off in the 3000St. He undertook a short Euro tour in June setting PBs of 8:31.38 in steeple and 13:58.62 in the 5k. This followed his 3k PB of 7:54.00 in February.

    After his quick tour he returned to AUS at the end of June to win the Oceania steeple in 8:41.15. Zagreb is his first race since then.

    Linden Hall

    is running 1500 again after a 4:04.22 SB in Zurich last week. Depending on how the race unfolds it will be interesting to see if she gets close to her 4:00.86 PB NR AR set at Eugene last year. If Canada can get its first sub-4 runner this year, Australia should be able to.

    Rohan Browning

    will open his Euro campaign after a very modest domestic season of 2 competitions, Qld Track Classic 10.08 +2.0 PB and 3 rounds at Nationals, finishing 2nd in 10.28 -0.2.

    He was very lucky to squeeze under the 10.10 qualifying time, so it's time for him to run 10.0x in still conditions. He will be helped by running against four guys with sub-10 PBs, Gatlin, CissÚ, Brown and Rodgers.

    How about Harry Summers at Doha?

    He's the Oceania champ at 10 thou...I was curious because the N.Z'er Oliver Chignell is qualified since he won the 5k at the same meet. Summers has run twice under 28 this year and Chignell's best of 13.46 is an inferior mark to a sub 28.

    In the 10,000, Area champs are not automatically qualified. But with two sub 28:00 times to his credit this year, I imagine he'd be accepted if the Aussie federation entered him.

    Athletics Australia is unlikey to select him under their selection policy which aims to:

    • Nominate the most competitive possible team to represent Australia;
    • Selecting athletes and relay teams with the realistic potential to win a medal or finish in the top 8 in Doha;and
    • Providing major Championships experience to likely 2020 Olympic Games medallists and top 8 finishers


    Summers has not met the 27:40.0 qualifying time for 10k, has not had a guaranteed selection through a nominated event and is outside the current roll down list on Road to Doha.

    The only Australian currently likely to get an offer is Stewart McSweyn with a 27:50.89 at the end of last 2018. It's quite possible that McSweyn might not be interested in the 10k if he gets selected at 5k.

    Even if this moves Summers up far enough in the roll down, AA is very unlikely to select him becaue of his probable lack of competitiveness this year and next.

    Buckingham moves to #9 alltime in Steeple with 8:27.51 in Zagreb. That's a Q for Doha. Makes life tougher for Max Stevens who has just been pushed down to #45 on the rolldown (with a target of 45!).
