She's actually on the start-lists for Oslo along with Kim Gevaert, Sheri-Ann Brooks and...Merlene Ottey!!

Where are said startlists ? I wouldn't mind a skwizz...

But how "interesting" to see Nesterenko back. I wonder what this year will bring for her... *bites tongue*

On an off-topic note, are they really going to have 23 starters in the 3000m steeplechase? :shock:

Interestingly Nawal El Jack is doing the 800m and Genzebe Dibaba is entered for the 5000m.
