The USATF team for London is one of the best team in years, perhaps, just perhaps, even better than Rio? Well, we shall have to wait and see over the next few weeks. Looking forward to seeing them in London! Here's the most complete roster that we can find, courtesy of Amanda Brooks, USATF marketing and communications manager.

RunBlogRun opines: The USA men's team of set an U20 World record for the 4x400m at the Pan Am Juniors on July 23! The team consisted of Brian Herron, Zachary Shinnick, Sean Hooper and Josephus Lyles. The time of 3:00.33, breaking the 13 year old record of 3:01.09 (team had a young LaShawn Merritt and young Kerron Clement). Here's the video and a piece from EME News! Congrats to our fast foursome!

4x400 m World U20 record
TRUJILLO (PER, Jul 23): The USA closed the 19th Pan American U20 Championships on a high note by breaking the men's U20 4x400m world record. Brian Herron, Zachary Shinnick, Sean Hooper and Josephus Lyles pushed themselves to a new time of 3:00.33 minutes, erasing the 13-year old mark of 3:01.09, set by another USA squad that included future Olympic champions Lashawn Merritt and Kerron Clement. Christopher Taylor, the 2015 world U18 400m gold medallist, anchored the Jamaican quartet to a new national U20 record in 3:03.77. In the women's race, USA's Syaira Richardson, 400m silver medallist Jaevin Reed, 16-year old Arria Minor and Takyera Roberson smashed the 10-year old championships mark by more than a second with 3:28.57. Jordan Geist became the fifth man in history to break the 22-metre barrier in the shot put, unleashing the implement to 22.02 in the third round (6 kg). Meet records also for Eric Van Der Els in 1500m (3:43.16) and Quincy Hall in 400m hurdles (49.02). Alegna A Gonzalez Muñoz won for Mexivo 10 000 m walk 44:43.89 and Roberto Vilches high jump 221. The USA dominated the medal tally with 54 medals (22 gold, 14 silver and 18 bronze), followed by Canada (6-9-7), Cuba (4-3-0). Mexico, Ecuador and Colombia each won two gold medals. 20 nations earned at least one medal, including hosts Peru, who ended with five bronze medals. The next edition will be held in Curacao in 2019.

RunBlogRun opines: We saw this announcement on www.germanroadraces.de, and we applaud the Asian Athletics Association. The vitality of marathoning in Asia is something not written about in North America and Europe. With strong marathons in India, China, Korea, and the Middle East, we hope that this new series will help promote the fine athletes from Asia who are running marathoning.

RunBlog Run opines: A busy day in Grosseto, Italy as the European Athletics U 20 Championships conclude! Check out the great video capturing Mondo Duplantis on his final attempt. There is some fantastic video on the twitter account for European Athletics, don't miss it!

Duplantis MR 565, Hruba 193, Giger over Zupin
GROSSETO (ITA, Jul 23): Sweden's Armand Duplantis broke another long standing record to claim the pole vault title with 565 cm. Germany's Bo Kanda Lita Baehre cleared 5.45m to secure the silver medal and France's Romain Gavillon improved his lifetime best to 5.35m to claim bronze. Jakob Ingebrigtsen only made his debut at the 3000m steeplechase three weekends ago but the 16-year-old has already broken the long-standing European U20 record, qualified for the World Championships in London and now he has the continental title to his name in 8:50.00. After 5000 m his second title here. Yasmin Giger from Switzerland won surprisingly the 400 m hurdles in 55.90 NJR to move to sixth on the European all-time U20 lists - missing Zuzana Hejnova's championship record by just one-hundredth. Agata Zupin of Slovenia who was leading the full race was second in 55.96 national senior record. France's Wilfried Happio claimed gold in a national U20 record of 49.93 in boys 400 m hurdles. France also claimed the triple jump title as expected but the source of the title was a surprise. World indoor U20 record-holder Melvin Raffin had to settle for bronze with 16.82m behind 17-year-old Andrea Dallavalle from Italy (16.87m) and Martin Lamou, who improved his lifetime best from 16.34m to a European U20 lead of 16.97m in the second round. Having won world U18 and world U20 titles in the last two seasons, Czech Republic's Michaela Hruba capped her stellar junior career by clearing 1.93m in the high jump before three attempts at a championship record of 1.96m which would have added one centimetre to a mark jointly held by Yelena Yelesina and Mariya Kuchina. There was an upset in the 800m final as Croatia's Marino Bloudek fended off European U20 leader Markhim Lonsdale, 1:48.70 to 1:48.82 while Jemma Reekie put her fourth place finish in yesterday's 3000m final behind her by claiming the 1500m title in 4:13.25. In the 5000m, the Netherlands' Jasmijn Lau won gold in 16:38.85. Serbia has another star in the making as Milica Gardasevic followed in Ivana Spanovic's footsteps by winning the long jump title with 6.46m while Poland's Oskar Stachnik won the discus title with a season's best of 62.01m. From European Athletics.

Here's a fine piece from Elliot Denman, an Olympic race walker, who writes about the significance of the women's 50k Race Walk being added to the IAAF World Championships in London in August! This gives women the same number of events as men in athletics. And Erin Taylor-Talcott is very excited! In this feature, Elliott Denman provides the historical context for the addition and how the 50k RaceWalk needs women's competition at the distance to survive in the modern Olympic world.

Saucony Zealot IOS 2, $130

SauconyZealot2.jpg

"Every season the Saucony line upgrades a few more styles to its Everun foam and the Zealot is the latest to receive this bump up. The upper benefits from use of the ISO Fit system, a cage-like lacing system that allows a more supportive and conforming midfoot fit. Its proven effectiveness affords a fit missing from a traditional setup."
