Ahoure beats Fraser-Pryce and Jeter, 4 World Leads in Birmingham! by Alfons Juck, EME, note by Larry Eder
The British Athletics Grand Prix, aka the AVIA International up until this year, was, as usual, a fantastic event. The biggest story of the night was not the ease with which Mo Farah won the 3,000 meters, but how fast Murielle Ahoure is running. Her 6.99 is a screamer! She beat Fraser-Pryce and Jeter in the final!

As I am writing this on Sunday afternoon, being stuck in Chicago due to the lovely missing aircraft, Renaud Lavillenie has jumped 5.93m in the pole vault, to take the World lead once again.

And, seriously, Doc Patton just kicked some butt last night in Millrose Games with his WL and PB of 6.50 in the 60 meters. At 31, he is really moving! Heck, at any age, 6.50 is moving!
