Samba took .85 off, Allen faded badly after leading at 300
9.98 for the sixth place runner has only been achieved 5 times in history, including the last three Olympic finals. Rodgers in 5th in the same time has been done 13 times over the years, firstly by frankie fredericks in 1991. Blake finishing fourth in 9.95 has only been equalled or bettered 13 times as well.
Prandini takes it from the surprise packet thomas, Jackson third
Overnight should see the entries posted for the Brum diamond league. Two heats for the 100 brings 16 of the best to try to make a final to potentially propel them into the final in Brussels.
Quality thirteen who could run 9.99 in the heat to make the brum final. I imagine ujah, Harvey the Turk, Gemili, tyquendo tracey and Mitchell-Blake could be the losers. Then if the final goes the way I think, lyles could bump prescod out of Brussels. Zharnel would need to finish top three to displace bingtain Su. Fastest time ever in Birmingham of 9.91 could get Challenged and up to ten men could break ten seconds across the three races
Harvey not running but prescod could be the wildcard. Lyles, zharnel hughes and simbine will surely be first three in first heat. Second heat willknow what is required, maybe under ten sec. Blake, Coleman, Rodgers top three there.burrell and prescod could make the final with a quick time, beating the fourth time from the first, cisse, ujah, or tyquendo tracey
Women's 200 is a stacked field, talou v Asher-smith showdown
Only 30 min now til heats of the 100. Hope the wind swings around after the hurdles just ran into a 1.2 headwind in the same straight
My tip for the heat is lyles easing down in 9.92, simbine 9.94, z.hughes 9.97, t.tracey 10.02 which could miss the final.
In all the races all year a third in 9.97 has only been bettered in the Paris diamond league and in London in both heat and final.
The second heat has enough sub ten runners that because they will know a 5th in 10.00 will get a run in this final, five or even six could go under it. That could be the fastest 5th and 6th all year, both in the London final, both registering 9.98
My tip is blake 9.92, Rodgers 9.94, Coleman 9.95, Burrell 9.97, Mitchell-Blake same time, and prescod 9.98. No saving yourself for the final two hours later, you have to get there
Its simbine 10.07, z.hughes 10.09, lyles 10.11, ujah 4th in 10.13. Surely 6 from heat two get under that. Following wind 0.1mps
Mitchell-Blake not running so edoburun with a 10.04 pb is in the mix
Only four go thru, Burrell misses out
T.tracey in 10.25 is the ninth finalist on times
Prescod tipped out into second into a headwind in a pb 9.94. The 73rd man to beat the old world record of Jim Hines
Talou way down the back, miller-uibo too good for asher-smith
Looking to the 200 in Zurich in two weeks, could the first six finish under the 20.13 run by six at the euros last weekend? Lyles and guliyev seem a class above, well under 20 sec, another four in jereem Richards, Mitchell-Blake, Aaron brown, and Webb could go under 20.10 and be the fastest first six ever.
Zurich tonight and Brussels tomorrow night, diamond league season finals
