    ah bummer! yes, I forgot about CoVid19. What an impact it is having worldwide. My wife and I just today cancelled our May/June trip to Spain, lower France, northern Italy and Slovenia.

    Sorry to hear about your trip. Hopefully you guys can reschedule it at a later time.

    Even in Australia the Junior National Champs were canceled. The Australian Senior National Champs have been postponed to a later date and
    may also be canceled if the virus continues to spread worldwide. The Olympics are at risk as we speak. Hoping things get better and we can get
    back to a normal life. May God bless the people of the world.

    A new name from a young sprinter out of South Africa to keep an eye on. Eckhart Potgieter ran a wind legal 10.29 and 20.53 yesterday. This kid
    is only 19 years of age. I hope he can have the potential to be another Morne Nagel type. He has elite talent for sure. Hope he can continue to get
    the best coaching and continue to progress. Excellent times for this young sprinter!

    Karsten Warholm set a word record today in the 300m hurdles. He ran the race alone.
    Jakob Ingebrigtsen, also of Norway, set a European record in the 2000m in the same meet.
    Pretty damn good for a country of 6 million people!

    From the comments:

    "A white man holds the fastest running record? This is fake"

    I guess he wouldn't like watching the Olympics in general then?

    Nice. Would’ve loved to see some black runners stumbling in his wake.

    Phillip Trutenat ran a good opening time of 10.27 wind legal today in Germany for the win. Nice time and a good base to build on. :)

    This kid can be the talk of Sweden if he just continues to get better. I see no reason why he won't. Sweden needs guys like this to keep their genetic stock going? The girls must love this guy. I hope Henrik Larsson inspires many young kids in Sweden!

    Wow, Phillip Trutenat ran a really good time with his normal guy body.

    Henrik definitely looks more like a sprinter.
