Three more Russian athletes have been cleared to compete in international competition as neutrals while a further 28 have had their applications rejected, the governing body for athletics (IAAF) said Wednesday.

The IAAF said that 400 meters runner Kseniya Aksyonova, javelin thrower Vera Rebrik and 400 meters hurdler Vera Rudakova had meet the "exceptional eligibility criteria" required to be able to compete as neutrals.

1.89 is a mediocre result for a senior high jumper... but not for Yuliya. She fell from the training equipment & injured her leg in April. 5 stitches :cry:

Despite that she had her 1st competition in the middle of May and another one 1 week ago. She finished with 1.83 at both. Crying/screaming from pain, being exhausted - I've been at both, I've seen that. Now she jumped 1.89 in Poland from the 1st attempt and tried to clear 1.92 (her outdoor PB) and I'm friggen speechless. She's my hero :bowdown:

Ján Volko destroyed today the 100m National record running (for Slovakia) a incredible 10.16 :hyper: but still 0.04 behind the WCH qualification standard :( this is too harsh standard IMO

It is not harsh, it is outright INSANE. It is higher than our National Record and the person that is behind our NR has ran in semi-finals in Olympics, has been to the World Championships and nearly even medalled in the European Championships, but got an injury right before the final, was only behind Vicaut and Lemaitre after semis.

Overall the line-ups for tomorrow's diamond league in Rome are pretty weak, but women's 5000 m could be really fun. Personally i am pretty excited for women's 1500 m, it is the first time Konstanze Klosterhalfen competes in the diamond league and many think that she is ready to run sub 4 (after her 14:51 5k and 1:59 800 m solo runs earlier this year). Sadly Kipyegon and Muir withdrew, so Hassan might be the only one able to run sub 4 and i doubt that she will be willing to make the pace for Klosterhalfen, so it seems pretty unlikely that it will be a sub 4 pace and instead more of a tactical race with a winning time somewhere between 4:00 and 4:02.

Really curious what Konstanze Klosterhalfen can do on this 1500m in Rome, she's definitely in fantastic shape.
