    Paris diamond league overnight tonight. I am interested in the men's 200 to see if a 400 hurdler named rai Benjamin can take a full half second odd his pb, that's 5~6 metres, and finish among the top 3. That would take him into the top 200 all~time

    400 hurdles for men has 5 runners who share 24 of the top 50 times in the last two and a half years. Good race coming up at 4am

    how could i be so right? saw him and his USC teammate at the NCAA's, so i knew they were in rare form. what a shame we didnt see him at the comm games, could have easily won the impossible double of 200m flat and 400 hurdles.

    Lausanne, Switzerland holds the next dl meet in 5 hours. Men's 200 should be lyles v Norman, women's 100 could be talou, Thompson, ahoure, schippers, Hobbs, and okagbare all under 11 sec in that order

    Hoping the women at 4.52am can push each other in favourable conditions to times like two years ago here, Thompson won then in 10.78. Ahoure has been down to that time once as well.

    Circus moves to Rabat tomorrow night. Men's 100 should finish like the us champs last month, lyles just ahead of baker in under 9.97. Utah third because he is a dl specialist, then Coleman or Rodgers.

    400 is a fascinating match up between the minor placegetters from the NCAA' s vs haroun of Qatar who already has two seconds and a third in dl meetings this year. Thebe and santos would have to get back close to their pb's to get close

    Women's 200 pits miller-uibo vs Asher-smith and okagbare. The first four should all beat the existing meet record and the meet records in the two men's races will go as well

    Monaco hosts the stars this Friday night. Women's 100 field includes seven who have already broken 11 seconds this year plus schippers who at her best could tip them all out. If six break that mark, it would only be the 5th time in history. Seven under that time has only been achieved once, in Rio.

    Women's 400 could just be the highest quality field this year.!Three of them under 49.60 this year and they should fight it out. If they all push each other, could be the first time in twenty years that three women break that time. Only done five times all-time, only once since 1984.

    huge weekend with the diamond league moving to london on sat and sun. mens 100 has two quality heats of nine with my pick to make the final being: ronnie baker, simbine, blake, coleman, i.young, burrell, ujah, and maybe taftian of iran and cisse.

    mens 400 could see the DL leader over hurdles take 0.7 seconds off his pb if carried along by a top field. first 3 will be allen of jamaica, kirani james, and haroun

    Cannot believe Beatrice tried and achieved the world record in the steeplechase and also cannot believe it is not reported yet on the Monaco dl website

    Amazing heat times, final could easily have 8 of the 9 under 10 seconds for the first time in history if they can all back up an hour later and the conditions suit

    Six under 10 sec with 7th and 8th both recording 10.01. Following wind speed 0.1 mps, a bit stronger would have sealed the deal
