    I see an article about this, so commence speculation.

    Men
    400 - possible, unlikely.
    400H - ditto
    PV - ditto. Mondo is the wild card, as in, he COULD.
    TJ - long shot
    SP - we're getting there, but not yet
    DT - wind dependent. Stahl or Dacres could catch one and if the wind is right . . . but in THIS stadium I doubt it.
    Dec - Mayer ready again?

    Women
    1500 - Hassan mighta coulda, but ain't running it. Is G Dib ready?
    St - Chepkoech put it beyond her own reach?
    5000 - could, but will the pace dawdle?
    10000 - ditto, less likely
    100H - unlikely
    400H - best chance in the meet. Two under?
    HJ - Lasits capable
    TJ - Rojas ready?
    Hep - Thiam extreme longshot

    I would say that men's 4x4 is an outside possibility.

    W HT, W 10,000 were broken at the Olympics. There have been other WRs set in Oly/Worlds, but since broken, W JT, for one.
    Anders Garderud, long time ago.
    Setting a WR in a global championship is the ultimate achievement in athletics.

    I think the men's 400H is more likely to go than the women's.

    Not sure it's more likely, but I believe the chances are pretty good. The two 400Hs look like the best WR chances to me by a long way.

    Yeah, but it will be the third race in 4 days for both. OTOH, 1968, 1972, 1992 for men, 1993 and 1995 for women.

    BTW, I have an Excel spreadsheet of the Doha schedule, three sheets:
    1. chronological
    2. by event -- so you can see how much rest, and which doubles are (im)possible
    3. just finals

    If anyone is interested, PM me.
    Cheers,

    Swiss Federal Tribunal rejected her claim, so for the moment, at least, CAS's acceptance of the IAAF's protocol is the law of the land. Her lawdudette said it wasn't over yet.
