    New one today.
    New questions.

    Men
    5 - TBek?
    10 - how do we know Cheptegei's form?
    110H - how is Shubenkov?
    400H - how is Samba?
    HJ - Barshim?

    Women
    100 - SAFP over ET?
    200 - I missed that SMU said she's not doubling?

    hmmm.... both are listed on the Road To Doha list....

    but an IAAF release of May 10 says
    <<Amos Kipruto, Geoffrey Kirui, Laban Korir, Paul Lonyangata, Ernest Ngeno>>

    an Ethiopian story of June 01 says
    <<Mosinet Giremew, Lelisa Disasa, Birhanu Legese and Tamirat Tola>> but that same story also says 6 were named, although it lists only 4.

    We don't have any Ethiopians marked as selected, Can't mark all the names mentioned in that news report as selected, so we'll have to wait.

    understood; I'm taking the position that if you haven't specifically declared them not eligible then they remain a viable option

    Isn't Obiri doubling? She gets a medal in the 10000 for sure.

    And an American will medal in the m800.

    Coburn second.

    SMU, if doubling, will get gold.

    Roberts > Holloway

    Just for this year? Holloway tired, long season. Or Roberts from this point on.

    They're both bad-asses, but Roberts was in a class by himself in Iowa.

    The 110H, being what it is,
    Going pro, being what it is
    Competing in Europe, being what it is
    Training for the WC, being what it is

    I'll give him a pass today. He and Holloway can go 1-2 (in either order) if the pieces fall into place - the talent and speed are already there.

    Their career is in the future, WC 2019 is an appetizer.
