    Glad to see Schippers win. Times aren't as important this year. Very few sprinters are in the proper peak conditioning. Schippers still held off Swoboda.

    yes, went past her in fact. Too bad that start for the Swiss lass Del Ponte wasn't as good as it could have been. I think she might have just snuck past Swoboda too. All 3 very close at this stage though

    I miss the old Schippers who would come like a bullet train at mid race, and just fly past the competition.
    I wish she would change coaches before she's too old.

    Despite Deniz Almas not getting the win today. he ran great again. The kid has gone sub 10.20 consistantly and also sub 10.1o twice this season all as a 23 year old! Almas is one to watch next season closely.

    After that PB 150m in Ostrava, just for fun I added Dafne's best points for each of the 7 heptathlon events

    7257 points

    Of course it'd be impossible to be in PR form for each event at the same time but it was a fun little exercise to show her ability

    It looked like Ivet Lalova was just jogging in the race. Hopefully she isn't hurt.

    Lieke Klaver may be another young Dutch woman to watch. She finished 3rd in that 150 metre run in a new personal best. She's also run 22.66/200 and 51.39/400 this year having just turned 22.
    100 Metres 11.46 +0.5 Oordegem (BEL) 01 JUN 2019
    150 Metres 16.89 +0.6 Mestský Stadion, Ostrava (CZE) 08 SEP 2020
    200 Metres 22.66 +1.3 Stade de La Charrière, La Chaux-de-Fonds (SUI) 15 AUG 2020
    400 Metres 51.39 Stadion Wankdorf, Bern (SUI) 24 JUL 2020

    Like her countrywoman in the 400H and 400, Femke Bol, she is 1.83m tall (6 foot), both an inch or so taller than Dafne

    At the Swiss Championships, Silva Wicki ran 10.18 into a very slight negative wind.
    He's had a very good season, but hasn't performed as well in international competitions

    Henriette Jaeger, 17, sets a world U18 heptathlon best with 6301 points in Moss, Norway today.
    In addition to being the Euro U18 leader in the 100m, 200m, and 400m, she is also the U18 leader in the long jump! . . . and obviously in the heptathlon.
    Unbelievable talent coming out of Norway (population 5.5 million).

    Hedda Hynne of .... NORWAY! .... just ran a world leading time of 1:58.10 in the 800m!

    I just can't believe how well this little country is doing in track.
    The Ingebrigtsen brothers, Karsten Warholm, Henriette Jaeger, and now Hedda Hynne.
    Go Norway!!!

    Filippo Tortu 10.07 with very slight negative wind for 2nd place in Switzerland.
    That's a European leading time.

    Ajla DelPonte with the win on the women's side in a good time of 11.18.
    Schippers 4th in 11.42, just nipped by Amy Hunt who ran 11.41.

    Schippers has been one step forward, and two steps back. Can't seem to get on track.

    Viking warrior? Are you certain of that? Simply being Norwegian doesn’t guarantee Viking blood. Either way he’s got Olympic gold in his future imo.
