    Remember this is the DL final athletes needed to qualify for. Kipyegon didn't even run any DL 1500m races. Samba ran only one DL 400mH and ultimately didn't accumulate enough points. So ultimately everyone is there except the select few who didn't qualify or (I'm guessing) did qualify but didn't want to run, like Laura Muir.
    Seems like the only people who were invited were a few Swiss athletes.

    Agreed - and ordinarily I prefer my elite PVs to have fewer people and more aggressive bar increases, but right now, with the WC a month away and little chance of another summit, I wanna see (and I even think the athletes do too - as part of their prep) a situation more akin to what they'll face in Doha. It's all about the prep now.

    The usual suspects will still jump high - wouldn't surprise anyone if M, K, and L all went 6.

    I'm very curious to see what Thiago Braz does. He looked terrific in Monaco, then did terribly in Lima.

    Braz isn't exactly a model of consistency. He's been up and down his entire career. His only consistent year was 2016. And we saw how that turned out for him.

    Of those qualified for the finals, these are not on the entry list as of today:
    Ibarguen and Saladukha W TJ
    Bondarenko and Sawe M HJ
    Botlogetswe, Seyni and S Jackson W 400 (this field is seriously depleted)
    Chemutai and Frerichs W SC
    Henderson M LJ
    Muir and Weightman W 1500
    Liu M JT
    Coleman M 100

    Several of these may be at the African Games in Rabat, starting today.
    Cheers,

    I'd be at least mildly surprised, given that the highest 3rd-place mark ever at this point is 5.95.
