    This meeting in Székesfehérvár, near Budapest in Hungary is regularly the highest ranked one-day meeting outside of the DLs & ISTAF Berlin and this year looks like it will be no exception. There's easy streaming of it on Hungarian TV (see below.)

    Here's some of the top events ...
    m200 - Coleman, Oduduru, Guliyev
    m110H - Holloway, McLeod
    mTJ - Taylor, Claye, PPP
    mDT - Stahl, Dacres, Gudzius
    w200 - Miller-Uibo, Ta Lou, Okagbare, Thomas
    w100H - Harrison, Nelvis, Clemons, Ali
    w400 - Naser, Francis, Jackson

    I get the feeling that Dibaba is going for a WR attempt in the 2000.

    Live stream - at 4.45pm - 7.55pm local time (there's a 12 minute break at 7pm - for news?) - go to https://www.mediaklikk.hu/ first then click the purple "Elo" button top right and select M4 Sport (no geo-blocking).

    7 men with sub-20s PRs in 200m makes for a solid field...

    And also MHT: Fajdek vs Nowicki...

    Queen Claye was Queen Harrison, yes?

    Men's 200 has 7 with PBs under 20, 4 with SBs under 20. The meet record of 20.01 is by no means soft but the record is vulnerable.

    Men's TJ has 3 with PBs over 18 (Claye, Taylor, Pachardo), and 5 with SBs over the meet record of 17.36 held by Taylor. I rate this record as gone baby gone.

    The MDT record of 69.50 of Zoltan Kovago shows that the stadium is conducive to big throws. Kovago is down to throw but the last time he threw 67m was at this meet in 2016. The comp will be between Stahl and Dacres with both over 70 this year. Despite this, there's still a reasonable chance the record will survive.

    The rest of the men's events don't seem ready to challenge any records this year.

    The W200 seems a foregone conclusion for SMU to win. She has never run a 200m at this meet but has run the 400m three times - 52.39 (2014), 49.86 (2017) and 49.53 (2018).

    Two weeks after last year's meet, she ran a 22.29 (-0.5) at Rabat, proving she can combine the two events in short order. Given her improved 400 standard this year, she has a good chance to go under VCB's record of 22.26.

    However, Okagbare has run 23.14, 22.58, 22.05 this year for improvements of 0.56, 0.53. If she follows this trend, she'll improve 0.50 to run 21.55 - that's the way things work, don't they?

    Anyway, she is definitely have a better year than 2018 where she ran, in chronological sequence, 22.04, 22.43, 22.66, 23.03, 23.42.


    Naser looks to be in the form to take down SMU's meet record of 49.53 in the W400 after her 49.17 in Lausanne. This is her debut at this meet.

    None of the other events appear to have performers of this calibre, apart from the 2000, which I'll leave to others.

    SMU is definitely favourite. Okagbare is getting back to her best (she hasn't been fully fit for the past 3 years) but has admittedly stated she is at about 80% now. I'm expecting the winner to drop a 22.1x possibly.

    I think the 200m mens event will be competitive. Difficult to say who the outright favourite is. I would slide towards an Oduduru win. I think he has been magnificent over the 200m this season.

    Lausanne had more or less ideal conditions though, and she was forced to run 49.17 just to win. Wouldn't be surprised with a slower winning time here.

    That said, Naser's improved her SB in every race so far this year...

    If Okagbare so much as equals that 22.05 she'd be way ahead of the usual pattern. Like about half a second.

    So she has. 8 races in 6 meets in 4 calendar months. Wow!
