What the heck....

Talking to people who know more about athletics, they believe there were too many big personal bests set by people not running on the special shoes.

They think it was a problem with the measurement of the course

Swapping the cold Moroccan spring for the tropical paradise that is County Durham...

:CAN Canada's team for the World Relays. Canada will compete in all Olympic events except the 4x400 men's, which is dumb if you ask me, there some young potential Olympians who could have made a nice team up + they were sitting in the 24th and final qualifying position for this event.  Andre de Grasse will not be competing as his girlfriend is due around the same time.

Strangely, the major story of this announcement concerns the "pregnant girlfriend".

That's Nia Ali, the world 100 hurdles champion, who now has no chance of representing the USA in Tokyo.

Shamier Little 49.91 in the 400m. Wise from her to switch from the 400m Hurdles since there are more chances for her in the flat distance given the incredible depth with Muhammad & Sydney McLaughlin at the hurdles. Though an american sweep at the olympics could be in the making if Little qualifies there with Dalilah & Sydney

:SVK will participate at the World Relays :woot:  Only the 2nd time ever ! we participated only once so far, during the very first edition in Nassau 2014 in M 4x800m (8th place).

 

This time we´ll send a Mixed 4x400m relay, apparently we are around 5th place behind the last Olympic spot via ranking, so even if not realistic to qualify it is really nice and pleasant to at least try and send participants, something quite unusual for us, it does not happen in some other sports so often.

 

 

The team :

1st leg - Oliver Murcko (expected to be our weakest leg)

2nd leg - Iveta Putalová

3rd leg - Emma Zapletalová (expected to be the strongest leg)

4th leg - Šimon Bujna

 

and alternates: Martin Kučera (still in contention to be part of the relay), Patrik Domotor for the M, Alexandra Bezeková & Daniela Ledecká for W
