    Northern hemisphere summer season is about half over and the 400 hurdles is at an interesting stage. Only three runners this year have achieved the times that twelve beat last year. Four of the 12 were Americans, not including Kerron Clement, the reigning Olympic champion and bronze medal winner at the last world champs. Top two this year are metres ahead and will fight out both the diamond league and world champs finals. Third is an absolute lottery.

    this is my 4000th post. two interesting events will happen overnight. Pan Pac marathon in Lima peru should see two men from different countries but both named Pacheco win gold and silver; and Sydney v Dalilah in a semi of the US champs over 400 hurdles. they will not only be 1 and 2 here, also the same in this final, the DL final, and then finally in the World Champs final. All that is left to play out is who wins which race.

    Taking a big interest in distance running. A 21yo Ethiopian woman ran an amazing time for 15k on Sunday. Seems the gap between men and women in this sport is closing.

    Marathon and half marathons worldwide are in chaos. Rotterdam is the latest to get postponed. Boston and London are late April.

    Hoping the Olympic marathons August 8 and 9 still go ahead
