They're fine for me

Maybe better on TV than stream?

 

Possibly. But it's quite small on a laptop. :d

93.90m for Röhler, what the hell :hyper:

 

:yikes: Was there some strong wind or something. This is so unexpected.

I don't think there were very special conditions to be honest. It's not like Röhler hasn't shown before that he's capable of very big throws, although this is a bit different level all over :p

I can't not notice several black sprinters from Japan in Diamond League. Is this the way that Japan is preparing for 2020 Olympics? It's getting pathetic when host nation always naturalising athletes from elsewhere.

I saw a video on Twitter with the Eurosport 2 logo...

 

Eurosport doesn't have the rights here, so here they won't show it of course (plus Giro d'Italia going ahead of a 'regular' athletics meet is not so weird).

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.
