    That's three comps in a row over 22m by Romani. That's getting into rarified air.

    Walsh had a 3-in-a-row sequence leading into Pre this year, but was sub-22 there. Did strong together a 4-in-a-row sequence back in 20.17

    Crouser is currently on 6 in a row (and also managed a 6-in-a-row sequence in early 2018).

    Kovacs, Haratyk, Bertemes and Hill have not yet managed 3-in-a-row.

    Prep Justin Robinson advanced to the final of the 400 with a 2nd place 45.38 in his semi. Wil London also made the final.

    A third prep (in addition to Mu and Robinson) is Morgan Smalls in the women's HJ (imagine she was picked based on that 6-3.25 indoors).

    Now that start lists are up for tomorrow, Gregorek is the only American listed. Engels was confirmed as withdrawn according to a letsrun post by Jonathan Gault.

    I hope someone figures out what that was all about. Was Engels ever properly entered? Did he ever intend to run?

    OK. I see that now. It still doesn't explain the mis-information on the Pan-Am website, but it's good to know that his not running in Lima was voluntary and not the result of a clerical/administrative error by someone else.

    Anyone care to guess what Craig Engels' middle name is?

    I thought that might be the problem. Somewhere in the process, someone may have insisted on using passport names.

    Gotta be

    1. Friedrich
    or
    2. Nominame

    but I would like

    A. Acute
    or
    B. Obtuse
    or maybe even
    C. Complementary

    It has to be a trick question of some kind.
