2017 Weltklasse ZH results, new format a big hit....

| 0 Comments

Wow! How do I explain this? Two hours of Olympic finals. The best of the best, in most races, and some fun performances. Shaunae Miller-Uibo and her fast 21.88NR in the 200 meters! CJ Ujah showing that GBR has some fine up and coming sprinters, winning last two season 100 meters. Isaac Makwala winning 400m in 43.95 as Steven Gardiner goes down at the blocks. Sam Kendricks winning DL and his season is complete in PV.

The Weltklasse's stadium, the Letzigrund is one of the finest athletic stadiums in the world, and there is not a bad seat in the house. The crowd is knowledgable, partisan Swiss and exciting to behold. The performances, one after another overwhlemed this viewer.

Caster Semenya's fine 800 meters, was an example. The women's steeple with Ruth Jebet slowing down with 50 meters to go, when she noticed the world record was not to be hers, suggested that her 8:55.28 was number two all time but, not Jebet's best.

And the 4x100m relay with top teams from Jamaica, GBR and Switzerland, and a lackluster team from US only suggested what could have been.

And Mo Farah's final 5000 meters was the thriller for Zurich down to the final steps!
