Around the time she used to win. Great to see her, I'll be very interested in how good she'll look......and what sort of Pole Vault form she's in :wink:

Other athletes I'll be particularly interested in seeing how they perform are:

Demus, Hejnova and Spencer in the 400m Hurdles; Bengtsson in the pole vault, Jepkosgei and Jelimo in the 800m, Shubenkov and Merritt in the 110m hurdles and the mens's long jump.

Bengtsson jumped 4.30m today in Jinan/CHN to win against a dozen chinese athletes.

She's never started her outdoor season in May as a senior. I wonder if Li-Ning might have persuaded her to compete in Shanghai as she normally opens in June/July? But perhaps she just felt she needed to start her season earlier as she missed the indoor season and her ploy of competing very sparingly before the champs in recent years hasn't paid off.

Looking forward to seeing how Genzebe Dibaba goes over 5000m. I've felt the event has been rather stagnant as of late with T. Dibaba and Defar both slightly on the wane.

This entire Shanghai meet will be interesting.

100mW
This will be SAFP's first serious 100m and Jeter's first race with her major competition. I am keeping an eye on Okagbare, who can easily spring a surprised based on the massive PB I saw in her 200m. Henry-Robinson should be interesting in this race as well and it will also be interesting to see how close Tarmoh can get to the major players in this race.

400mHW
Hejnova I expect to take this one with Demus coming in for second. This is Spencer's first race for the season over the barriers and with her early season injury I would expect her to not be at her best, probably a 55.mid. She, along with Demus, has the fortune of not having to peak for their trials so we can expect to see a steady build up towards the World Championships for these two.

800mW
This should be a Jelimo vs Jepkosgei battle with Jelimo being the clear favorite. I am interested in Niyonsaba if only because I see that he has a 1:56:59 PB.

5000mW
Defar vs Dibaba.... That's just it for me. And I say Defar!

She was scheduled to run the 200m yesterday. She pulled out at the last minute.

I expect Jeter to win since she is usually more consistent on the circuit. Fraser is more of a big time championship performer.

Even though Gatlin is a former World Champion at 200m, i dont expect to see him anywhere near the medal podium in that event come Moscow.

Wish Suhr was in it!
Suhr vs Isi....what a classic duel THAT would be!

Also Wariner in the 400.
And hope they go for time in the women's 5K.
(I agree a time of sub-14:20 is possible.)

I wouldn't bet on it. Believe him or not Gatlin has something to prove and a vulnerable Jamaican squad (as they are at the moment) may not have an answer.

I'm also interested in....

Women's triple jump - Ibarguen, Saladukha, Williams, Smith....

Men's high jump - Grabarz, Williams, Thomas, Barry....

Men's long jump - Rutherford, Tomlinson, Claye, Phillips, Watt, Mokoena...

Borel is up against a tough field in the women's shot put....

It looks like I'll need to buy a hard copy of the Radio Times to find out what times the Beeb is covering Diamond League meets, since they don't seem to be bothered about giving advance notice on their website....

It should be 1 to 3 pm GMT if it reflects the start of the track events as usual It appears there is a 7 hours difference with the UK. Red Button is not always satisfactory but on line seems to be OK.

I'm in the same position and I am almost certain they don't put it on iPlayer unless they have put it on BBC One, Two or Three as they have done in the past.

If you connect the DVD player to both the TV and the top-box, you will be able to record anything on the red button. That's what I've always done.

Last year the red button-only events were put on iPlayer as well teh following morning. However, annoyingly they didn't do it last week for Doha.

I read somewhere that Freeview has a dedicated channel showing the red button content. (No good for me as I have Freesat).

My free view box shows most of the red button coverage on a channel around 300 (I always start there and flick upwards and it's usually showing a couple of the red button things there- but beware, as it depends if anything else is on at the same time as sometimes other things take priority over athletics and so it won't feature- I know, RIDICULOUS!). I've recorded it that way before now...

If your DVD player has two scart connections, it should be fine. Connect the top one with a scart lead to the TV and the other to the top-box and you should be able to record anything. :)

I've just set my free view box to record- it's on Channel 301 at 13:00 if anyone needs it. Then you want have to do pesky fiddling with scary leads and the suchlike...

You weren't the only one. I woke up earlier than usual to watch on Friday morning, only to realize my usual streaming sites didn't have a link. Once I checked here and saw no one talking about the meet, something told me to look at the schedule. :x

Indeed. I quite like her, she has nicely progressed well in the last few years from 5th in the 2010 Europeans to 3rd at the Olympics in 2012. I think based of that race she will be a threat in Moscow.

I was shocked at how far back Demus was. Did she go out too fast? I thought she learned?
