Bringing this back to the top because lots of questions could be answered in this meet tomorrow.
Men
100 - who's hottest? - B Wms, Chambers, Gatlin, JJJ - is Montgomery done?
1500 - will Berryhill be dragged to A?
5000 - will Kennedy and Abdi go sub-13:20 (A)?
SP - who's the Paris favorite?
Women
100 - gets sorted out with 2 weeks to go
400 - how low can Richards go?
PV - is Stacy done? - is the WR safe? - is 16' doable this year?

P.S. That last Webb thing (STOP!) was me - sorry - just had to get it out of my system.

Where are Goucher and Torres going to run next? Are they just waiting to see what happens with AbdiAbdi and BK tomorrow?

I'm excited to see Latasha Colander-Richardson on the start lists of the 100m (I would be happier if it was the 400m).

Both are back in Colorado. Torres is getting ready for Paris. Goucher is undergoing tests to see what is wrong with him if anything physically.

Sorry, but Shirvo has as much chance of catching that field as Wile E. does of nabbing the roadrunner.

WOMEN'S 100M: Kelli White (USA) equals her PB to win with a time of 10.93! Second was Chryste Gaines (USA) with a time of 10.99, and third was Zhanna Block (UKR) with 11.11!

Women's 400m
1. Lorraine Fenton (Jam) 49.88sec
2. Tonique Williams (Bah) 50.66
3. Sanya Richards (USA) 51.03

Pre-race favourite Lorraine Fenton runs a superb race to destroy the rest of the field and record an easy win. The Jamaican athlete keeps her cool with Tonique Williams finishing ahead of American teenager Sanya Richards and Briton Lee McConnell back in fifth.

It has got to be one of the tightest 100m finishes in history. Five guys at 10.00.

Never mind about the 100m times. Auto timing failed, so everyone had hand times.

Good opening by Sanya Richards and Raasin McIntosh. I believe they both run Sunday in Berlin. Demetria Washington is getting closer and closer to running sub 51. She did well considering her lane assignment.

poor perforanaces by a lot of american athletes
only tyree, je young, glover, white, gaines, rusan and acuff did well. woody, williams and gatlin not too bad, but neeed to improve. dragila, krummenacker, bell and all of the shot putters were big disappointments. and by the way monty did not even make the final ! hopefully berlin and zurich will be much better...

3. Sandie Richards (Jam) 51.03

The results at iaaf.org show that the third place finisher was Sandie Richards of Jamaica, not Sanya Richards of the USA. Different runner, right?

yes, the auto-timer malfunction got them all a little confused.
