Stockholm-Diamond League( Friday July, 29th)
« on: July 26, 2011, 09:26:53 AM »
Yet another installment of this series, and all our athlethes who theoretically have a chance at medalling will be performing.

Kelly-Ann Baptiste has already enjoyed getting the upper hand over 100m of one of the odds on favoutites in VCB, but this time she goes up against Carmelita Jeter for the second time this season. Jeter plans on breaking the stadium record of 10.90, so it will be a fast one. Other noteworthy runners will be kerron Stewart and Marshevet Myers.

Over in the 400m, I will be looking closely at Renny Quow's performance. If he can perform against this field which will include all the medal contenders for the exception of Kirani james and Tony Mcquay, he will be back on the radar. Last but not least Lashawn Merrit makes his return to international sprinting against this stacked field.

Finally in the deuce, it will be Usain Bolt's last race before Daegu, but it will also be to my best recollection Richard's first 200m race of the season. Curious to see what he does, after neglecting the distance for over a year.

Cleopatra Borel-brown will have her usual presence in the shot put, which goes off on Thursday night.

No she dropped out.

But Richard was 5th in the 200 in 20.85 and Quow was 7th in 45.99 for the 400m.

Well she is currently on the card for London and both Shelly-Ann fraser and Jeter are also on the start list. If that list holds form, that will be a very stern test of form.
