    As of Aug 2019, which events are people most excited about the end of the year?
    #1
    For me, Iíd say the following:
    M100
    M400
    M400h
    Msp
    MPV

    I donít expect a WR in any of them, but would not be surprised with one in the later four.

    I donít pay that much attention to the womenís side of this so the only one I am really paying attention to is the w400h.

    You might try paying attention to the women's side. It's usually as good as the men's--sometimes better.

    W400 is arguably even more interesting than the men's version, with the top 3 fairly evenly matched and running at a level not seen in ages. Plus the top contenders all coming from different parts of the world, as opposed to US vs US in the men's event.

    Women's 400 is ready for history's first race with 3 under 49. 49.05, 49.17, and 49.19 this year and 2 have better PRs. That takes the cake, if you have any historical perspective you know that would be out of the park over any other event - unless the mens's 400 hurdles does something similarly otherworldly.

    M800
    M5000
    M400H (if all are healthy)
    MTJ
    MSP
    MJav

    W400
    W1500
    W5000
    W100H
    W400H
    WTJ
    WDis
    WHT

    Suppose, just suppose, that

    Sam Kendricks ups his PR in the final to 6.10, a mere 4 cm more,
    and he gets the Bronze.

    Lisek ties the 'outdoor record' at 6.15,
    and he gets Silver.

    Mondo goes 6.20 for Gold. Tries 6.25
    and makes it.
