    Too low key for a 6?
    It might be a good place to make a statement.

    There is a 60% chance of rain tomorrow in Goteborg. Shall we start a new thread called "Wet Runway Jumping"?

    Gonna be a meet full of the Swedish top athletes and probably great atmosphere but has been a while since Mondo competed now.

    Swedish weather services do not forecast rain right right now for when the competition is, but kinda chilly 16-18C/60-65F.

    Not exactly Doha preparatory . . . 100+F

    Are there any temperature abatement plans for Doha? Portable AC units trying cool off the track/infield?

    Dude, where have you been. Entire stadium is going to be air conditioned.

    We could repurpose the other one.

    The issue is hanging on to a wet pole. I don’t think that one has been solved.

    FIFA had to move the 2022 Doha World Cup from the planned summer months (Doha promised ACed stadia) to Nov-Dec, because the reality did not meet the promises. I will be interested to see the success of this stadium (which I assume is enclosed).

    Not surprising....the main reason for moving the WCup to cooler months was worry about the fans surviving the heat outside the stadiums for a month long tournament....

    "But the bigger safety concern is for the fans," James says. Outside the stadiums, it would be much harder to maintain the safety of thousands of spectators - many of whom would be drinking alcohol, thus dehydrating them further - in the scorching heat.

    It seems this perspective was shared among Fifa's upper echelons. "You can cool down the stadiums but you can't cool down the whole country," said the organisation's President Sepp Blatter.

    Fifa medical chief Dr Michel d'Hooghe has said he did not doubt the Qataris could organise a tournament where teams could play and train in a stable, acceptable temperature, "but it's about the fans". He added: "They will need to travel from venue to venue and I think it's not a good idea for them to do that in temperatures of 47C or more."

    Ha! The IAAF does not share FIFA's concern. It will still be 100 in late Sept.
