By the way, superb performance by Lisa Dobriskey who turned on a storming last 100m to claim the women's 1500m convincingly. She certainly has got more in her and could range in the low 4mins later in the season.
Mike Rimmer looks as though he has riden the storm and now really comes into fine form, his turn of pace into a 52 secs second lap very striking. Andy Baddeley played clearly in Rimmer's hands by sitting behind in the pack in such a slow opening lap (56.42 secs) and could find no way back having allowed the Liverpoolian such a gap into the straight. Yet, he still came second suggesting he blends plenty of qualities to challenge in China.
Emma Carpenter sprang the surprise of the day on Philippa Roles in the discus, adding half a metre on her PB - there could hardly be a better occasion to perform such a feat!
Perri Shakes-Drayton looks in great form and if she can find a fast race in warmer, less windy conditions, she could snatch a late place on Team GB. A real shame that Danvers-Smith missed a crucial spell from early May through to mid June through injury as she was looking up for big things this season. Hopefully, given she holds the A standard from last year, she can make up the lost ground by Beijing.
