Well, it's definitely not going to be easy. Šerkšnienė finished third in this race, Lea Sprunger and Lisanne De Witt ran faster, plus there's the strong athlete from Poland, blanked on the surname.

Yep, 50.96 seconds, breaking the Dutch record (51.35) that has stood since 1998 :bowdown:

And Lea Sprunger destroyed her own Swiss record from 51.09 to 50.52.

 

The Belgian record survived by mere 0.04s, would've been a damn good race to watch live :d

Anyways, 400m. women race is extremely improved comparing it to 2014 Zurich, where this time by Agnė would have been enough for gold and 2016 would have been enough for silver. Now three girls already running under 51s.

You mean about Justyna Święty-Ersetic?

You realize where this meeting took place? Do you think it's a coincidence that 3 national records were broken in the same race?

I would say on a track like Zürich those times would have been 0,5 s slower. I still don't see any of them, except for Sprunger, winning a medal at the european championships. My guess is that 3 out of the following 4 countries will win the medals: GB, France, Switzerland, Poland

Bohdan Bondareno is skipping this season completely. He had a surgery on his knee (nothing serious) this winter but the recovery took thrice more time than they expected. He started doing lite trainings in May and few days ago he was jumping at the stadium (though he said he doesn't work in full force, just 80-90% ). His team decided to sacrifice this season because he doesn't want to show sucky results, though he trains & prepares for the WCH.

Isn't it more likely that Lea Sprunger will compete at 400 Meter Hurdles?

At the moment she is leading the 400m.

 

Of course, she is also a medal contender in 400m. Hurdles. It's definitely not an easy choice to make.

Bashrim was so close to the world record, but he was very unlucky :cry: Btw, he won the Gyulai Memorial with 2.40m. 

In the 110hs great time for Sergey Shubenkov with 8th best time ever (12″92)

she already said to the Swiss TV that she's definitely going to run the hurdles in Berlin...that's her only target, anything else is just in preparation for the 400m H in Berlin...
