I'm at Icann and it's cold as hell and windy as hell and raining. The women's long jump was at 9:30 but there was some how a meet record.

Janay Deloach won in a meet record of 6.79m. Not everyone liked the conditions as Olympic champ Britteny Reese, who had PRd in Doha at 7.25m, was just 8th in just 5.99m.

I made a quick photo album of the set-up here. Nike's shot putters are all dressed the same.

The women's pole vault which was going to be done on the Millrose runway they brought out to put right in front of the stands will be done instead on the normal runway due to the conditions.

Makes sense as the millrose one was an elevated runway.

Enjoy the athletics Rojo

Looking forward to seeing 'junior' Geb in the 5000m

Can't help but compare this event list with the old golden league mini Olympic nights

Think Rudisha will show the who's boss

Distinct lack of Brits but at least we get to see free on the BBC

In the HS boys Dream 100, Leroy Burrell's son got the win:

http://www.diamondleague-newyork.com/Live-StartlistsResults/Overview/adidas-High-School-Boys-Dream-100m/

He ran 10.40. His legal PR is 10.42 so that's a pb but he's run 10.07windy.

It's worth noting that he ran into a .4 m/s wind. Not sure how that's possibe as the wind is huge and should be coming from behind. Guess it's more of a cross wind.

Then again, I didn't go.

That's what I thought at first but before the first commerical they showed a head on shot of the finish stands and it looked almost full.

No one on the backstretch. It's 50 and raining. Not a good day to get any walk up crowd.

How about an embarrassment for New York and America? The rest of the world pretty much shows up for these.

It looks like there are one or two waiting patiently to walk their dogs on this park once the annual Randall's Island Gala finishes.
